When US offered to evacuate Zelensky, he said: "I need ammunition, not a ride"

The world is still just observing the events in Ukraine, its President lamented. "We are defending our country alone." And he also rejected Putin's demand, "We will not put down weapons, we will defend our State."

KYIV, Feb 27: "The fight is here; I need ammunition, not a ride," Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told the United States when President Joe Biden offered to evacuate him as the invading Russian troops were closing in on the Capital Kyiv even as they were bombarding cities and military facilities all across the country.

Zelensky regretted the world was still just observing the events in Ukraine from a distance. "This morning, we are defending our country alone. Just like yesterday, the most powerful country in the world looked on from a distance," he said in a Facebook video.

The President said that the 27-bloc NATO was scared to let Ukraine into the global body. He said his country ended up defending itself on its own. "No one was ready to guarantee that Ukraine would eventually become a NATO member. Everyone is afraid, everyone is silent."

However, the Ukrainian leader stated, "I’m thankful to every country that is helping Ukraine by deeds, not just by words." He appealed for international assistance in a tweet.

Zelensky's condition on Russian offer of talks

Moscow proposed talks on Sunday again to end the invasion. It said its delegation has arrived in Belarus for talks with Ukrainian counterparts. However, Zelensky rejected the offer of talks in Belarus as he said Minsk itself was complicit in the invasion, and suggested other venues like Warsaw, Bratislava, Budapest, Istanbul or Baku for talks. Zelensky is reported to have said, “We want to talk, we want to end the war.”

But "We will not put down weapons, we will defend our State," Zelensky had said in response to Russian President Vladimir Putin's main demand to end the invasion. He is defiant and will hold on.
