Zelenskyy: Finland's support makes it possible for Ukraine to live and fight

KYIV. March 10 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Finland’s support at various levels and its participation in the anti-Russian coalition make it possible for Ukraine to live and fight against Russian aggression, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy has said.

“I am grateful to the people of Finland. I can see their attitude. I can see their support. They support us at the levels of both the government and ordinary people. They support us at various levels. This makes it possible for us to live and fight,” the head of state said at a joint press conference with Prime Minister of Finland Sanna Marin in Kyiv on Friday.

“And we are definitely fighting not for the sake of posts. We all want to win for the sake of our children’s future. And, by the way, we are still young people, and we want to win for ourselves and the state of Ukraine,” he said.

Zelenskyy also said that by supporting Ukraine Finland took the side of historical truth.

“As Sanna said today, they remember the war in Finland when they faced the big aggressor on their own. Therefore, they clearly understand how hard it is for Ukraine. And that is why they joined the anti-Russian coalition. Finland is not the side of historical truth,” he said.

The president also underlines that it is very important today to not let Russia win the war.

“They have been aggressors for many years, and many states suffered from them. Someone has to put the demonstration of such aggression in its place. I think we will do this,” Zelenskyy said.
