The ultimate goal of Russia's leadership is not just to seize the territory of Ukraine, but to dismember the entire center and east of Europe, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky wrote on Facebook on April 28.
According to Zelensky, there are almost no people left in the free world who do not understand that Russia's war against Ukraine is just the beginning.
"Therefore, the free world has the right to self-defense," the Ukrainian president said.
"And that is why it will help Ukraine even more."
Russia has grown increasingly isolated in its war against Ukraine, and has been the target of an unprecedented world-wide sanctions regime. Many EU countries have voiced their support for Ukraine, and efforts are currently underway to stop European purchases of Russian fossil fuel products - the main revenue source of the Putin regime.
