Ukraine is 'waiting for meaningful steps': Zelensky
The Ukrainian President is calling on NATO, the EU, and G7 for "meaningful steps", as if what they have done so far is nothing.
Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky delivered a video message commemorating the one-month anniversary of Russia's operation. "We're waiting for concrete steps from NATO, the EU, and the G7," he said.
"We already know that the Russians have begun to push for their interests. These are the goals of the war. We are aware that they are collaborating with others. We know they want to bring this to light. The fight against war. But this is the battle that must be ended."
"Our firm position will be represented at these three summits. At these three summits, we will see: Who is a friend, who is a partner, and who betrayed us for money," Zelensky told the nation.
At the beginning of the operation, Zelensky scolded the Western powers that he believes "left Ukraine alone."
Dreams of joining the NATO alliance and joint defense guarantees against the impending "Russian invasion" seemed to evaporate into the air as soon as Moscow launched its special military operation in Donbass.
Earlier, on his Telegram channel, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky released a video addressing Ukraine, saying, "We ended up defending our country alone. Who is ready to fight alongside us? I don’t see anyone."
He said that there was no willingness to guarantee that Ukraine will become a NATO member.
"Everyone is afraid, everyone is silent," he said. "They replied that <…> they are with us, but are not ready to make us members of the alliance."
