Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said, on Sunday, that Vinnytsia airport had been destroyed.
Zelensky, in front of the camera in a video posted on Twitter, says: “I was just informed of a missile strike against Vinnytsia. 8 missiles.
“Against a peaceful and kind Vinnitsa who did not threaten Russia in any way. A missile strike – cruel and cynical. The airport was completely destroyed.”
“They continue to destroy our infrastructure, the lives we built, our parents and grandparents, many generations of Ukrainians.
We repeat every day – close the sky over Ukraine. Close to all the Russian missiles, all the military planes, to all these terrorists. Please create a humanitarian zone free of missiles and aerial bombs.
“We are human beings, and it is your humanitarian duty to protect us, to protect civilians, and you can do that. If you don’t, if you don’t at least give us planes so we can defend ourselves, the only conclusion remains – you also want us to be killed very slowly.”
This is also the responsibility of the world’s politicians, Western leaders, from today and forever,” says Zelensky.
Here is some basic information: Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Saturday that he would consider countries imposing a no-fly zone over Ukraine to be involved in the conflict.
“We will immediately consider them to be participants in a military conflict, and it does not matter which members of the organizations they belong to,” Putin said at a meeting with the flight crew of Russian national airlines.
“It is impossible to do this, on the territory of Ukraine itself, it is only possible from the territory of some neighboring countries. Any move in this direction will be considered by us as participation in an armed conflict,” Putin added.
Zelensky and other Ukrainian leaders have repeatedly appealed to NATO officials and the West to impose a no-fly zone over Ukraine.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Friday that the no-fly zone is Not an option under consideration by the alliance.
