An adequate response to Russia's blowing up of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station would be to provide more weapons. In particular, from those countries that continue to communicate with Russia, for example, from Turkey, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said this in response to a question from the editor-in-chief of LB.ua at a press conference.
"We would very much like to see such a reaction from Turkey: fewer words, more weapons. We would like that," he said.
Zelenskyy added that he does not see Turkey's open support for Russia. However, Ankara does not apply certain sanctions, and in general, this is a sensitive issue.
"I think that there should be criminal liability, first of all... As for weapons: those who give weapons, they give them no matter what. Those who hesitate, they hesitate and see their own interests," he stressed.
Zelenskyy added that the biggest friends and partners are those countries that understand that they may be attacked next after Ukraine. "Where society is fully on the side of Ukraine and puts pressure on the leaders, countries give all possible weapons. Where societies are divided, say 50-50, they give 50-50."
"If societies are democratic, so are their leaders. They believe that we are fighting for common values. But we live in such a world - we must be strong and put pressure on others," the president stressed.
Last night, the Russian army blew up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station. Dozens of settlements were flooded, most of them in areas occupied by Russia.
