It is better to give Ukraine weapons support we really need now, than to look for weapons for Georgia, Moldova - Zelensky

President of Ukraine has called on the Group of Seven countries to provide Ukraine with weapons for the protection against the Russian aggressor. Volodymyr Zelensky said this in a video address to world leaders, this time during the G7 leaders’ meeting.

“It is better to give Ukraine the kind of weaponry support we really need now than to look for weapons for other countries later. We mean Georgia, Moldova, the Baltic States, Poland and Central Asia. The sooner this happens the sooner there will be peace in Eastern Europe.

This is in your best interest. This is in the interests of all democracies. Because democracies must be able to defend themselves. Freedom must be armed. Life must overcome death”, - he said.

On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the beginning of a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
