On Monday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called for Russia to be declared a “terrorist state”.
This came in a speech he delivered during his participation, via video conferencing technology, in the meeting of the 68th session of the Parliamentary General Assembly of NATO, in the Spanish capital, Madrid.
Zelensky said in this regard: “Russia, which endangers the lives of millions of our people, attacks the energy infrastructure of our country to cut off our needs for heating, electricity and water in the winter. It would be appropriate to recognize Russia as a terrorist state in your parliaments.”
Zelensky noted that any potentially dangerous attack on Ukraine’s nuclear facilities would affect all countries, and that it was in everyone’s interest to prevent it.

He stressed the need to provide his country with more anti-aircraft defense systems, calling at the same time that the sanctions against Russia continue.
Since February 24, Russia has launched a military operation in Ukraine, which resulted in angry international reactions and the imposition of “tough” economic and financial sanctions on Moscow.
