President Volodymyr Zelensky referred to NATO as “weak” in a speech delivered on Friday, following the alliance’s rejection of a no-fly zone over Ukraine.
As Zelensky stated on national television, “We feel that NATO countries have constructed a narrative that blocking the airspace above Ukraine will precipitate Russia’s direct assault against NATO.”
The hypnosis of individuals who are internally weak and underconfident, despite the fact that they possess weapons many times more powerful than ours, is described thus: “This is the self-hypnosis of those who are internally weak and underconfident.”
For his part, Zelensky stated that anyone else who dies in the country will also die as a result of NATO’s “weakness” and “disunity,” which he attributes to the alliance’s failure to restrict Ukrainian airspace.
To now, “all the alliance has accomplished is to transport 50 tonnes of diesel fuel for Ukraine through its procurement system, most likely in order for us to burn the Budapest Memorandum,” Zelensky explained.
Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed with the United States and the United Kingdom in the Budapest Memorandum of 1994 that the country of Ukraine would be required to transfer its inherited Soviet nuclear weapons to Russia for decommissioning if the country transferred its inherited Soviet nuclear weapons to Russia.
Following an attack on the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station in Ukraine, Russian soldiers assumed control of the facility on Friday. Zelensky’s remarks were also in response to the incident.
“By refusing to declare a no-fly zone over Ukrainian cities today, the alliance’s leadership given the go-ahead for the additional bombing of Ukrainian cities,” Zelensky added. In addition, I am unsure whether you are capable of protecting NATO countries. “
Antony Blinken, the United States Secretary of State, stated during a news briefing in Brussels on Friday that the United States would not establish an international no-fly zone because implementing it could lead to greater conflict in Europe.
As Blinken explained, “the only way to actually impose anything like a no-fly zone is to send NATO planes into Ukrainian territory and shoot down Russian planes, which might lead to a full-fledged war in Europe.”
“President Biden has stated categorically that the United States would not enter a war with Russia. However, we are going to great lengths, in collaboration with our allies and partners, to ensure that the Ukrainians have the means to properly defend themselves.”
These remarks came as Blinken warned that the crisis in Ukraine is “certain to grow worse before it gets better,” despite the fact that “everything [the United States] can” be done to help end the conflict.
“When we suggest that things are going to get worse, we are relying on what we know about President [Vladimir] Putin’s approach when it comes to attempting to subjugate another country or another region to his will, which is sad.
It was evident in Chechnya. It’s something we’ve seen in Syria. As we all know, Ukraine was the scene of a similar incident in 2014 “Blinken shared his thoughts.
We’re seeing Russian soldiers attempting to encircle major cities, including Kyiv. They’re employing increasingly violent tactics, including attacking people and civilian populations.
