Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was interviewed Friday on Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier.
When asked how he believes the “war will end,” Zelensky responded that only “victory” will be accepted by his country.
Through an interpreter, Zelensky said “A victory of truth means a victory for Ukraine and Ukrainians”. “he question is when it will end. That is a deep question. It’s a painful question. Besides victory, the Ukrainian people will not accept any outcome”.
At one point, the Ukrainian president discussed NATO with Braier. “It’s hard for us to talk about NATO because NATO doesn’t want to admit us,” he said.
“I think it’s a mistake because if we join NATO, we make NATO much stronger. We are not a weak state. We are not proposing to make us stronger at the expense of NATO…We are an addition, we are the locomotive. I think we are one of the important components of the European continent,” Zelensky added.
When asked about Putin, Zelensky said “The more you give them the more their appetite grows”. He also warned that Putin will continue into Europe “unless he is stopped” now.
Baier also asked Zelensky whether he believes that President Biden “wants” Ukraine to win or if his administration is fearful of Putin’s reaction.
“I have faith that President Biden, like any true American citizen, believes and wants the truth to win,” Zelensky said. “And the truth is on the side of Ukraine. I believe they want the values that make our nations closer to win”.
Zelensky continued, asking the United States for more weapons. “We don’t want a million … quality bulletproof vests or some special brand helmets,” he said.
“Just give us missiles, give us airplanes, you cannot give us F–18 or F-19 or whatever you have, give us old Soviet planes,” he added. “That’s all. Give them into my hands. Give me something to defend my county with”.
