Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced in his most recent message to the nation that at the European Council meeting at the beginning of next week he will demand that Russia “be officially recognized as a terrorist state”, News.ro reports.
The situation continues to be “very complicated” in the Donbas, where the Russian army is on the offensive, says Zelenski, adding that the Ukrainian military is resisting but “it is indescribably difficult.”
“We work every day to strengthen our defense. (…) Every day we are approaching the moment when our army will surpass its occupants technologically. Of course, a lot depends on the partners. Their willingness to provide Ukraine with everything needed to defend its freedom. And I look forward to hearing from you next week, “said the Kyiv leader.
Referring to the recent bombings in the Sumi and Mikolaiv regions, where a residential area was hit and one person was killed and seven others were injured, Volodymyr Zelenski says he will “remind the world that Russia must, in finally, to be officially recognized as a terrorist state, a sponsor of terrorism ”.
“This is correct and reflects the daily reality that the occupiers have created in Ukraine and are eager to bring it forward in Europe. And this must be legally enshrined, “the Ukrainian president continued.
In this context, Zelenski specified that he will address the participants in the European Council meeting, which will take place between May 30-31.
In particular, I will talk about this. About terror, which has in fact become the only form of action of the Russian state in relation to Europe. Terror on the land of Ukraine. Terror on Europe’s energy market, not just in our country. Terrorism in the global food market. And what kind of terror will follow?
Volodymyr Zelensky, President of Ukraine:
“Only together – all Europeans – will we be able to stop such a policy of such a state,” Volodymyr Zelenski said.
