We are defending our country alone in the war against Russia : Ukraine President

The US, European countries and NATO nations backed out despite their promise to support Ukraine

Editorial Comment

It proves that everyone has to fight their war. India should also learn from this.

Kyiv (Ukraine) – In a speech to the nation, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy emotionally said, the world has left us alone in the war against Russia. Who is ready to fight with us ? I don’t see anyone. Who is ready to guarantee NATO membership to Ukraine ? No one, as everyone is scared. Zelenskyy lamented that the United States, European countries and NATO nations had promised to help Ukraine against Russia, but backed out.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s views :

1. Ukrainian troops stationed on the border showed bravery while defending the country. They laid down their lives but did not surrender to Russian forces. Unfortunately, we have lost 10 army officers, including 137 other army personnel. All will be awarded the title ‘Hero of Ukraine’ posthumously. Those who gave their lives for Ukraine will be remembered always.

2. Russian troops have reached Kyiv. I and my family live here in Ukraine. We are not traitors but are citizens of Ukraine. I can’t tell you exactly where they are. According to the information we have, I am the first target and my family is the second target of the enemy.
