The world community must act preventively, stopping possible aggressive actions of potential aggressors. This opinion was expressed by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky on June 22, communicating with students of leading universities in Canada, video made public on YouTube.
“If you allow the President of Russia, their military to seize our houses, enter, destroy everything, kill, rape people … If all this is allowed, then they will see it – probably there are still such people and leaders in the world – and if it is here [в Украине] works, it can work on the other side of the world, on any continent. This cannot be allowed to anyone. Therefore, it is necessary to take preventive steps and, as they say, hit on the hands, even if a person thinks about it,” Zelensky said.
He stated that the world should react to the actions of the aggressor as if the war “is not in Ukraine, but at your home.”
“Then there will be a result,” the president added.
Zelensky stressed that Ukraine needs financial and defense assistance, as well as sanctions pressure on Russia.
“All of this will never be too much as long as the war continues,” he added. “Each and every one of you can do it. Ukraine, don’t let someone somewhere above, in the bureaucratic corridors, forget about what is happening in Ukraine, forget about the war. Please don’t get tired because of the war. Don’t get tired of the war in Ukraine.”
