Zelensky reveals what Ukraine, other countries should expect from Russia this week
As the European Union (EU) considers whether Ukraine should be formally considered for candidate status in the wake of Russia’s invasion, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has stated that Ukraine should expect “greater hostile activity” from Russia.
In his nightly address on Sunday, Zelensky warned other European countries to expect Russia to engage in similar hostile behavior.
“We should expect greater hostile activity from Russia. Purposefully — demonstratively. This week exactly,” Zelensky said.
“And not only against Ukraine, but also against other European countries.”
He added, “A week when we will hear the answer from the European Union on the candidate status for Ukraine. We already have a positive decision from the European Commission, and at the end of the new week, there will be a response from the European Council.”
Ukraine and Russia have been fighting for close to four months.
As of today, several casualties have already been recorded as a result of the war.
Russian President, Vladimir Putin, had in February ordered the invasion of Ukraine due to some political differences between both neighbouring nations.
