Zelensky says Russia not going to stop in Ukraine

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said that Russia is not going to stop in Ukraine.

He said this in his address at the NATO summit, Ukrinform reports, referring to the President's Office.

"I am sure you already understand that Russia does not intend to stop in Ukraine. It does not intend and will not. It wants to go further. Against the eastern members of NATO. The Baltic states, Poland - that's for sure. Will NATO then stop thinking about it, worrying about how Russia will react? Who can be sure of that? And do you have confidence that Article 5 can work? "Budapest" hasn’t worked for us already. Our Budapest Memorandum. Has not worked for peace in Ukraine. And I will tell you honestly - today Budapest is not working for peace in Ukraine as well. Yes, we receive help from individual members of the Alliance. I am very grateful. Ukrainians are sincerely grateful for this. To each of you who gives what you have, supporting us. But what about the Alliance? The question of Article 5 is fundamental. I just want you to know what we think about it. And I sincerely wish you that we are wrong in our assessments and in our doubts. I sincerely wish that you actually have a very strong Alliance. Because if we are wrong, the world is safe. But if we are at least one percent right, I ask you to reconsider your attitude. Your own estimates. And really take care of security, security in Europe and, consequently, in the world," Zelensky said.

On February 24, Russia launched unprovoked large-scale military aggression against Ukraine, which was met with fierce opposition from the Ukrainian Armed Forces and the entire nation.

Three summits are being held in Brussels on March 24 - in NATO, in the EU and in the G7 format, which will focus on responding to the crisis provoked by Putin's war against Ukraine.
