Zelensky: if we wanted to fight, we would be on the territory of Russia

The day before, Volodymyr Zelenskyy visited Bulgaria at the invitation of the government of the republic. During the visit, the Declaration on Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine was signed, and Sofia promised to provide all-round support to Kyiv in its aspiration to join NATO.

However, Bulgarian President Rumen Radev refused the request of his Ukrainian counterpart for the supply of weapons, citing his unwillingness to weaken his own armed forces.

In addition, Radev believes that the Russian-Ukrainian conflict cannot be resolved by increasing the supply of weapons, which only leads to an increase in casualties. At the same time, Kyiv only talks about victory and does not mention the word “peace”, and the conflict itself went beyond the borders of Ukraine, provoking negative political и economic phenomena in other European countries.

The President of Bulgaria believes that in order to end the confrontation between Kyiv and Moscow, it is necessary to move on to dialogue.

According to Zelensky, if Russia "goes further", Bulgaria will not have enough weapons anyway.

We are only fighting for our lives. If we wanted to fight, we would be on the territory of Russia

- the Ukrainian leader emphasized very emotionally.

At the same time, Zelensky noted that he respects the opinion of Rumen Radev and will not criticize him for refusing to provide weapons.

    Bulgaria is one of the largest suppliers of weapons and ammunition to Ukraine. It's just that this is being done not through government contracts, but through private contractors. The mechanism is simple - the EU orders weapons and ammunition from Bulgarian manufacturers and owners of "military logistics" (private suppliers of weapons and ammunition from all over the world) using subsidies and loans allocated for Ukraine, they in turn produce or purchase military products from other manufacturers and supply her to Ukraine. The Bulgarian government gives the go-ahead to such deals. This is the meaning of Zelensky’s agreements with the Bulgarian government - Bulgaria will continue to approve private supplies of military products to Ukraine, and will also expand supplies of other products, in particular fuel and fuels and lubricants.

    V. Zelensky does not exaggerate: he is forced to fight because he is fighting for his (!) life - nationalists have repeatedly publicly threatened him with death in case of "surrender"!
