Ukraine will officially request an “accelerated accession to NATO”, President Volodymyr Zelensky announced on Friday, September 30, immediately after Russia publicized the illegal annexation of four regions of Ukraine, reports AFP.
“We are taking a decisive step by signing Ukraine’s candidacy for accelerated NATO membership,” announced the Ukrainian head of state, in a video broadcast on social networks.
The Ukrainian president also announced on Friday that he will not negotiate with Russia as long as Vladimir Putin is in power, immediately after the Kremlin leader asked Ukraine to capitulate.
“Ukraine will not negotiate with Russia as long as Putin is the president of the Russian Federation. We will negotiate with the new president,” Zelensky declared in a video posted online immediately after the Kremlin leader formalized the annexation of four territories from Ukraine.
On the other hand, a crowd of people gathered in the center of Moscow, before a concert celebrating the annexation of four regions of Ukraine – Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, Donetsk and Lugansk, occupied by Russian troops.
Ukraine held a security council on Friday, September 30, concurrently with the events organized in the Kremlin:
Here is the message published by Zelensky on the Telegram channel:
“The meeting of the National Security and Defense Council has just ended. We have a solution.
The first thing established is that only the path of strengthening Ukraine militarily and expelling the occupiers from our entire territory will restore peace. We will go this way.
Second, Ukraine has been and remains a leader in negotiation efforts. Our state has always offered Russia the option to agree on coexistence under equal, honest, dignified and fair conditions. It is obvious that this is impossible for this Russian president. He does not know what dignity and honesty are. Therefore, we are ready for a dialogue with Russia, but only with another president of Russia.
And thirdly, we need to legally register everything that we have actually already achieved. In Ukraine, the fate of democracy is being decided in the face of tyranny,” said Zelensky, among other things.
