MADRID, May 9. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The President of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenski, has assured this Sunday that Ukraine is part of the free world and a united Europe, while Russia is isolated, after participating for the first time in the G7 leaders’ meeting.
“On this Sunday it has been shown that we are already a full-fledged part of the free world and of a united Europe. It is a clear contrast with the obvious isolation of Moscow,” Zelenski said, as published in a statement by the Presidency from Ukraine.
Thus, Zelenski has explained that he has requested that sanctions against Russia be increased, in particular, “that they apply embargoes on Russian oil and oil products,” he said.
Likewise, the Ukrainian president has assured that they have talked at the G7 meeting about the war, “the global threats posed by Russia and our respect for the common historical heritage, our common values and the importance of freedom”.
On the other hand, the president of Ukraine lamented “the Russian air attack in the Lugansk region that has left some 60 people dead” and the missile attacks in the Odessa, Sumy, Donbas and Kharkiv regions.
“As if this Sunday were not May 8, as if this Monday was not May 9, when peace should be the leading word of the day,” Zelenski said.
