In view of the dire situation, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyj again called for Western support. With the aim of providing financial assistance and “continuing sanctions” against Russia, he again called on US President Joe Biden, he tweeted.
Kyiv is demanding more severe punitive action against Russia from the Western community, especially against its energy sector. The Western Federation has rejected a request by the Ukrainian government to set up a no-fly zone for NATO, citing the threat of further escalation of the conflict.
Putin on Saturday insisted that the creation of a no-fly zone over Ukraine was a red line for Moscow. Such a move “will have enormous and catastrophic consequences not only for Europe, but for the entire world,” he said in a meeting with staff of the Russian airline Aeroflot.
