In an exclusive interview with UK tabloid The Sun, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has expressed his concern that the conflict in Ukraine could lead to World War III. He cited Russia’s involvement in conflicts around the world and its refusal to back down unless pressured by the US and China.
Zelenskyy emphasized the importance of China’s role in pressuring Russia, noting that while China is not interested in the Middle East like Russia and Iran, it could still play a critical role in stopping further escalation of the conflict. He warned that Ukraine is at the center of global risks and that a defeat by Russia could have serious consequences for NATO countries.
Zelenskyy also acknowledged that Ukraine is facing challenges in garnering support from the US Congress and is unable to defend itself without assistance from Western countries. He stressed the urgent need for international support in preventing further escalation of the conflict and deterring Russia from further aggression.
Overall, Zelenskyy’s remarks underscored the need for global cooperation to prevent a potential World War III and ensure peace and stability in Ukraine.
