Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy called on partners “to respond firmly to Russia’s terrorist actions in Ukraine and to prevent America or Europe from losing to Iranian Shaheds or Russian fighter jets.”

“All leaders, all international organizations need to respond to Russia’s actions. And to react harshly. Putin does not want any peace – he only wants war and death. He does not care whom he kills. The main goal is to destroy. First, Ukraine and Ukrainians. And then you, dear partners. Therefore, this is a matter of survival – and not only for Ukraine – so that the world reacts to Russian evil and presses – presses, hits back,” the Ukrainian President said.

Zelenskyy noted that this week alone, Russians have used almost 400 guided aerial bombs, more than 50 Shaheds and more than 40 missiles against Ukraine.

The President underlined that Ukrainian defenders had managed to shoot down seven Russian military aircrafts this week alone and 15 since the beginning of February. He called it “the right dynamics” of Russian losses.
