Zelensky says Ukraine ‘left alone’ to fight Russia

KYIV, Ukraine — Ukraine’s president says his country had been left on its own to fight Russia after the Kremlin launched a large-scale invasion that killed over 130 Ukrainians in the first day.

“We have been left alone to defend our state,” Volodymyr Zelensky says in a video address to the nation after midnight.

“Who is ready to fight alongside us? I don’t see anyone. Who is ready to give Ukraine a guarantee of NATO membership? Everyone is afraid,” he adds.

The president adds that he and his family remained in Ukraine, despite Russia identifying him as “target number one”.

“They want to destroy Ukraine politically by taking down the head of state,” Zelensky says.
