Defending Ukraine, the leaders of each state defend their country from war as well - Volodymyr Zelenskyy

When the world understands that the war in Ukraine is a common war, victory will become common as well. This was stated by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy during a video meeting at the Royal Institute of International Affairs Chatham House (UK).

"In order for the world to hear, we need to constantly talk to the world and give concrete examples. Today, Europe and the world are united around Ukraine," the President said.

At the same time, he noted that not all countries have joined the anti-war coalition, but Ukraine continues to explain the importance of global consolidation, in particular by addressing through the media, social networks and directly to the people.

"There are enough means in the world today to make our voice be heard. The world leaders do not have enough energy," the President added.

According to Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the leader of each country should powerfully help Ukraine in the fight against the invader, thus helping his or her own country avoid war.

"By defending Ukraine, the leader will defend his or her state. Just like ordinary people who just take to the streets with our flags. And this victory will be common. Victory not over Putin, but over this terror and terrorism, because he and his troops are the face of it," the President said.

"When every leader understands this, it will not be my solo - it will be a chorus of powerful leaders who will be able to convey this energy to those societies that are still in doubt and unsure of their choice," he said.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed: it is important to unite the world around the truth. Events in Ukraine should not leave the front pages of the world media, so that people in every country know what is happening in Ukraine every day.

"Because there is a war in Ukraine. And this war is a common one. Therefore, the victory will be common as soon as we understand that this is a common war," Volodymyr Zelenskyy added.
