Ukraine’s President admits he can’t fight Russia; Calls for support [WATCH]

President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine says it is important for Russia to stop bombing and k!lling the people of his country so they can move on and sit at the negotiation table.

Zelensky speaking in an exclusive interview with CNN on Tuesday afternoon said as long as Russia continues to attack Ukrainian cities, little progress could be made in talks between the two nations.

He went on to urge President Joe Biden to deliver a strong message about the Russian invasion and impress upon Americans the urgency and implications of Russia’s invasion.

“He is one of the leaders of the world and it is very important that the people of the United States understand (that) despite the fact that the war is in Ukraine … it is [a] war for the values of democracy, freedom,” Zelensky said.

Zelensky reiterated calls for the US and NATO to establish a no-fly zone over Ukraine or put boots on the ground. “I’ve already addressed and (spoken) to some Western leaders with this request, because I do believe that leaders do have to support democratic countries and they have to help them.”

“When we talk about no-fly (zones), we’re looking back into history … and that doesn’t mean that we need to draw another country into the war. And, frankly, you know, everyone is drawn into the war now.”

“I’ve spoken to Biden many times,” Zelensky said. “And I’ve told them many times that Ukraine will resist and fight stronger than anyone else but on our own against Russia we won’t manage it.”

“That’s why if somebody wants to help us, everybody has to act swiftly,” Zelensky added. “This is the moment.”

The US and NATO allies have aided Ukraine by sharing arms, military equipment and intelligence, while also imposing dramatic sanctions on Russia. But the alliance has thus far made clear it has no plans to send soldiers into Ukraine, which is not a NATO member.
