Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky again lashes western allies and pleads for help during his nightly video address.

“Everyone in Ukraine has united and has been devoting all their energy to the defense of our state for more than a month already,” he says, while weapons Ukraine needs are in the hands of its western partners, “covered with dust at their storage facilities.”

He asks for “one percent” of NATO aircraft and tanks, echoing a plea he has made before.

“One percent. We did not ask for more, and we do not ask for more,” he says.

“Ukraine cannot shoot down Russian missiles using shotguns,” he says, “and it is impossible to unblock Mariupol without a sufficient number of tanks, other armored vehicles and, of course, aircraft.”

“The United States knows that. All European politicians know. We told everyone. And this should be known as soon as possible by as many people on Earth as possible, so that everyone understands who and why was simply afraid to prevent this tragedy.”

“So who runs the Euro-Atlantic community? Is it still Moscow, because of intimidation? Partners need to step up assistance to Ukraine.”

“This is the security of all of Europe.”

Ukraine is united in its desire to live freely, to live independently and for the sake of its own dreams, not other people's sick fantasies.
