Ukraine war live: Zelenskyy says he still wants peace, despite atrocities of war

Renewed calls for oil and gas embargo against Russia

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has used his latest late night video message to renew calls for a complete oil and gas embargo against Russia. 

In the video, Zelenskyy calling oil and gas sales to the EU the sources of Russia’s “self-confidence and impunity” in its ongoing invasion of Ukraine. 

Zelenskyy also thanked the leaders of Britain and Austria for their visits to Kyiv on Saturday and pledges of further support. And he thanked European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and Canada’s PM Justin Trudeau for a global fundraising event that raised more than 10 billion euros for Ukrainians who have had to flee their homes.

Zelenskyy said democratic countries were united in working to stop the war. 

“Because Russian aggression was not intended to be limited to Ukraine alone, to the destruction only of our freedom and our life,” he said. “The entire European project is a target for Russia.”
