On Friday, Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky lamented that his country has been left to fight Russia on its own after an all-out invasion was launched just before Thursday dawn.
In a video address, Zelensky noted that the attacks had killed over 130 Ukrainians in the first day and ask for help from world leaders.
In his words: “We have been left alone to defend our state.
“Who is ready to fight alongside us? I don’t see anyone. Who is ready to give Ukraine a guarantee of NATO membership? Everyone is afraid.”
Meanwhile, the United States and the European Union have placed sanctions on Russia aimed at punishing Vladimir Putin’s regime.
