Zelensky: Level of threat to Ukraine from the north is critical

President Volodymyr Zelensky points out the high level of military threat around Ukraine and calls the level of threat from the border with Belarus critical.

"To date, comprehensive development is impossible without a sufficient level of security and stability in our region. The military threat around Ukraine remains high. The level of threat from the north is critical as Belarus is used today as an additional springboard for aggressive action," Zelensky said in a joint statement by the presidents of Ukraine, Moldova, Poland, and Romania in Chisinau, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

The President also outlined other constant sources of threat in the region: Russian troops in the Transnistrian region of Moldova, Abkhazia, etc.

As reported, President Volodymyr Zelensky is on a visit to Chisinau on Friday to mark the 30th anniversary of Moldova's independence.
