Ukrainian President Zelensky says his country had been ‘left alone’ to fight Russia

In a video address, Zelenskyy said, “We have been left alone to defend our state…Who is ready to fight alongside us? I don’t see anyone,” news agency AFP reported.

We have been left alone to defend our state,” Volodymyr Zelensky said in a video address to the nation after midnight.

“Who is ready to fight alongside us? I don’t see anyone. Who is ready to give Ukraine a guarantee of North Atlantic Treaty Organization membership? Everyone is afraid,” he added.

“Today, I asked the twenty-seven leaders of Europe whether Ukraine will be in NATO. I asked directly. Everyone is afraid. They do not answer.”

The Ukrainian President added that he and his family remained in Ukraine, despite Russia identifying him as “target number one”.

“They want to destroy Ukraine politically by taking down the head of state,” Zelensky said.

“I am staying in Kyiv with my people, as is my family. Ukraine stands alone. They don’t want us in NATO. Nobody wants to fight for us. I am grateful to all countries providing actual help, not just moral support.”

Zelensky concluded: “Now the fate of the country depends entirely on our national army, on our heroes, our security forces, all our defenders.
