Principled approach necessary in countering Russian aggression; says Zelenskyy at NATO Parliamentary Assembly
Says Ukrainians have demonstrated that nothing is impossible for us when we are truly united and defend our unconditional value.
NEW DELHI: Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelenskyy called for maintaining principled approach in countering Russian aggression and said that Russia has bet on a genocidal policy, and that is why it is destroying our energy infrastructure.
“We must maintain one hundred percent principled position in countering Russian aggression. Russia has bet on a genocidal policy, and that is why it is destroying our energy infrastructure. To "kill" electricity, water and heat supply in winter - and this is Russia's goal - is to put the lives of millions of people in direct danger. This is equivalent to the use of weapons of mass destruction - an absolute crime,” said Zelenskyy at NATO Parliamentary Assembly.
He further said that it is the constant strengthening of sanctions that will not allow the terrorist state to adapt and find new ways of ensuring its terror. A new, ninth sanctions package of the European Union is needed, new world sanctions against Russia for terror - immediately after limiting export prices for Russian energy resources, he added.
He said that Ukraine needs to be provided with a sufficient number and quality of air defense and missile defense systems. With a sufficient weight of defense and financial support. The terrorist state must see that it stands no chance, he stressed.
Ukrainians have demonstrated that nothing is impossible for us when we are truly united and defend our unconditional value; he said.
