Kyiv. August 28: Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the coalition helping Kiev in its fight against Moscow would not support the war-torn country if it took hostilities to Russian territory.
CNN quoted the president as saying Sunday in an interview with local media when asked if the time had come for such a move: “I think this is a big risk, and we will certainly be left alone.”
Zelensky said Ukraine’s fight to regain its territory had been greatly supported by its relations with its allies.
He added that the progress and responsibility that Ukraine bears on the battlefield are “always bilateral,” adding that international partners were part of any victory, any stumble in the counterattack, any defensive actions and any weakness.
Zelensky also said he believes it is possible to “push for Russia’s demilitarization” of occupied Crimea by political means, CNN reported.
The past few months have seen an increase in strikes on Russian soil, with Russian officials saying Ukrainian drones and shelling are responsible for the attacks.
Meanwhile, Ukraine has claimed responsibility for attacks by drones and other weapons on Russian-held Crimea and targets around the Black Sea, promising that there will be more to come.
