Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky is now calling on Biden and NATO to impose a No-Fly Zone over the Ukraine.
Zelensky said his allies must now do their part after Ukraine has begun defending itself against Russia.
Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky is urging President Biden and NATO to impose a “no-fly zone” over “significant parts” of the country, telling Axios in a statement that Ukraine “can beat the aggressor” if the Western allies “do their part.”
Why it matters: President Biden has ruled out sending U.S. troops to fight Russia in Ukraine. That pledge extends to a no-fly zone, which would require the U.S. military to potentially directly engage Russian air forces, White House press secretary Jen Psaki stressed on Monday.
Driving the news: Zelensky, who remains in Ukraine under siege from Vladimir Putin, said in a statement to Axios provided through an adviser: “If the West does this, Ukraine will defeat the aggressor with much less blood.”
“The sanctions are heading in the right direction. In addition to disconnecting the Russian Central Bank from SWIFT and providing more Stingers and anti-tank weapons, we need the West to impose a no-fly zone over significant parts of Ukraine,” Zelensky said.
“Ukraine can beat the aggressor. We are proving this to the world. But our allies must also do their part.”
If the Biden administration decided to do this it would undoubtedly mean a hot war with Russia.
Worth remembering: a no fly zone is nothing but a pretext for a military invasion.
