Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said if Ukraine loses the war Americans “will have to send their sons and daughters” to fight.
- Volodymyr Zelensky gave a stark warning to Americans last week, claiming if Ukraine loses the war against Russia parents will be sending their children to risk their lives and fight in combat.
- “The US will have to send their sons and daughters exactly the same way as we are sending our sons and daughters to war,” Zelensky said during a press conference. “And they will have to fight, because it’s NATO that we’re talking about, and they will be dying.”
- The Ukrainian president said it’s “dangerous” for United States citizens to be questioning the amount of aid given to fight Russia.
UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT VOLODYMYR ZELENSKY ON AMERICANS SENDING THEIR ‘SONS AND DAUGHTERS TO FIGHT’:
“Because it’s NATO we’re talking about, and they will be dying, God forbid because it’s a horrible thing,” Zelensky said.
- Last week, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen announced the government would be providing $10 billion in taxpayer dollars to Ukraine “in coming months.”
- “The United States and our allies are proud to support the Ukrainian people’s fight for freedom,” she said. “Our military assistance includes key defensive weapons that Ukraine has asked for — such as the Patriot missile defense system. And our economic assistance is making Ukraine’s resistance possible by supporting the home front: funding critical public services and helping keep the government running,” the secretary continued.”
- In December 2022, Zelensky claimed the $45 billion in aid the U.S. provided to Ukraine at the time was “not enough.”
- “We are not in an easy situation. The enemy is increasing its army. Our people are braver and need more powerful weapons,” the Ukrainian president said about the war. “We will pass it on from the boys to the Congress, to the president of the United States. We are grateful for their support, but it is not enough. It is a hint — it is not enough.”
