President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasizes that it is impossible to remain neutral in the war waged by Russia against Ukraine, as the lack of assistance to our country means the strengthening of the Russian Federation, which will then threaten other countries.
"You help either Ukraine or Russia. There will be no mediators in this war. By weakening assistance to Ukraine, you will strengthen Russia. And a powerful Russia and what to expect from it... I think history in books and witnesses has long since answered this question. If someone wants to take a risk, fine, weaken assistance to Ukrainians. But, to be frank and honest, freedom, democracy and human rights must be fought for," the Head of State said answering journalists' questions after the meeting with Justin Trudeau in Ottawa.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed gratitude to the partner countries that help Ukraine with weapons and funding.
"Yet this is not the highest price. Ukraine is still paying the highest price for this today - in people, in the number of deaths. Therefore, we are very grateful for the help," the President emphasized.
