Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has called on people around the world to join the war against Russia.
In a statement on Sunday (February 28th), he accused Russia of killing civilians and praised the Ukrainians for resisting the Russians.
“All citizens of the world, including friends of Ukraine who believe in peace and democracy, join Ukraine. The world, including Europe, can join the fight against Russian aggression,” Zelenskyy said in a statement.
Earlier, Kiev said an international “military team” was being formed for foreigners willing to volunteer to stand by Ukraine.
Those who wish to join should contact the Defense Department of the Embassy of Ukraine in their country, the statement said.
