New iron curtain falling on Russia – Ukraine’s president
Ukraine successfully resists Russian troops, Volodymyr Zelensky has claimed, urging Europe to help
The ongoing escalation in Ukraine will cut Moscow off from the whole “civilized world,” President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a new video address on Thursday.
“What we hear today are not just rocket explosions and the roar of jets. This is the sound of a new iron curtain descending and cutting Russia off from the civilized world,” he said, adding that Kiev’s goal was to ensure the “iron curtain” does not fall on Ukraine.
Ukraine’s military has been successfully resisting Russian forces who launched an operation in the country early Thursday morning, Zelensky claimed. At the same time, he urged Europe to help Kiev, warning the “war” might reach it as well, should Europeans fail to react.
