Speaking on the second day of the Munich Security Conference, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy challenged members of the European Union and NATO to take their relationship with Ukraine seriously.
In emotional remarks, he thanked partners for their rhetorical and material support in the face of Russia’s military build up on Ukraine’s borders. But he said they have Ukraine to thank for standing up to Russian aggression for years, and protecting the rest of Europe from it.
Still, Zelenskyy said diplomacy is the only means for Ukraine to regain the territory it lost when Russia attacked in 2014. That led him to question Russian claims that they are not seeking to do so again now.
Christiane Amanpour was on hand to conduct an in-depth follow-up interview with Zelenskyy.
