Kyiv Warns Of Russian Escalation During EU Bid

Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelensky, has warned Russia will intensify its attacks on his country in the coming days.

Kyiv applied to join the European Union just four days after Russia launched its invasion on February 24th .

Speaking during his nightly address from Kyiv, the Ukrainian leader said he and his advisors expect “greater hostile activity” from Moscow.

However, President Zelensky ¬†told citizens that his forces “are preparing” and are ready for any renewed assault.

President Zelensky pledged to push forward with what he called Ukraine’s “historic” ambitions to join the European Union, which were endorsed by the bloc’s executive, the European Commission, last week.
