Late Saturday, Ukraine’s president ordered his European “partners” to send 1% of all NATO planes, tanks, and armament for the country’s protection.
In a video message, Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke about enhancing the “shared security” of all European countries, emphasizing that the “price of this security” for Ukraine includes planes, tanks, anti-missile defense systems, and anti-ship armament.
“This is what we have with our partners. This is what their storage facilities are covered with dust. After all, this isn’t just about independence in Ukraine; it’s about freedom in Europe. Because it is unacceptably dangerous for everyone on the continent if the Baltic nations, Poland, Slovakia, and the whole of Eastern Europe are threatened by Russian invaders, “he stated
“Is it still Moscow because of intimidation?” Zelenskyy asked, when asked who leads the Euro-Atlantic community.
