According to him, the Russians want to destroy the energy infrastructure of Ukraine, depriving the Ukrainians of water and heat in the winter.

“They want to put the lives of millions of people under direct threat. This is tantamount to the use of weapons of mass destruction. An absolute crime,” Zelensky said.

He noted that “it would be right” if, in response to Russian terrorist attacks, NATO member countries recognize the Russian Federation as a sponsor of terrorism at the parliamentary level, following the example of Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland and the Czech Republic.

Zelensky focused on strengthening sanctions against Russia, as well as improving the Ukrainian air defense system. The head of state called on the allies to increase defense support for Ukraine in order to persuade the Russian Federation to the Ukrainian “peace formula”.
