Russian President Vladimir Putin’s refusal to back down from his aggression in Ukraine has led to concerns that the war could escalate into a global conflict, with implications for the entire world. In an interview with UK tabloid The Sun, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed his fear that Russia’s involvement in conflicts around the globe and its partnership with Iran could lead to a spiral of violence that could ultimately lead to World War III.
Zelenskyy emphasized the importance of China’s role in stopping Russia’s aggression, noting that China is not interested in conflicts in the Middle East like Russia and Iran. He warned that Ukraine is at the center of global risks and that a potential defeat by Russia would have dire consequences for NATO countries.
The Ukrainian president also acknowledged the challenges he faces in garnering support from the US Congress and highlighted the need for international support to prevent further escalation of the conflict. He stressed that Ukraine cannot defend itself without assistance from Western countries and urged NATO members to take a more active role in supporting Ukraine.
Zelenskyy’s remarks underscored the urgent need for international cooperation to prevent further aggression by Russia and ensure global stability.
