Ukrainian leader says Russian President Vladimir Putin will continue his movement to the end
Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Friday (February 17, 2023) that it was “obvious” that the country was not the last stop for Russian leader Vladimir Putin. For him, the Russian will continue the movement to the end.
The Ukrainian head of state spoke via video link at the 59th Munich Security Conference.
“He [Putin] will continue its movement to the end…including all other states that were once part of the Soviet bloc,” Zelenskyy said.
He says Russia’s president will continue to make strides against other exSoviet countries, and while the West debated supplying Ukraine with tanks, Putin pondered ways to “strangle” Moldova, which lies west of Russia.
Zelenskyy even declared that “next year Let’s gather here in Munich for the postwar conference, for a free Europe and a free world”.
Macron & Ukraine
French President Emmanuel Macron also spoke at the event, saying there can be no peace in Ukraine until Russia is defeated.
“The time for dialogue has not yet come because Russia has chosen war. Russia has chosen to attack civilian infrastructure and commit war crimes,” Macron said.
The French leader also said that Russia is doomed to “defeat in the future.” Macron also said that he wanted to organize a conference on European defense due to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
