Volodymyr Zelensky calls for a no-fly zone to defend NATO

As Ukrainian President NATO warns, Russian bombs are likely to strike within its borders.

Volodymyr Zelensky warns. On Monday, the Ukrainian president again urged NATO to establish a no-fly zone over his country, warning that otherwise the organization “Russian rockets” could fall on its state members.

“If you do not lock our skies, it will be a matter of time, Russian rockets will fall on your territory, NATO territory,” he warned in a broadcast video address.

The new report follows the bombing of a military base near the Polish border in western Ukraine this Sunday, which has so far been relatively spared by Russian attacks in which at least 35 people have been killed. The military base is located in Yavori, about 40 kilometers northwest of the city of Elviv, where many displaced people have gathered, and about twenty kilometers from the border with NATO’s member state Poland.

“Last year, I made it clear to NATO leaders that it would provoke war if drastic preventive measures were not taken against the Russian Federation,” he added.
