Zelenskiy says Europe needs to avoid division
– News X

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy today urged Europeans to stand united against Russia’s war and severely limit the price of Russian oil.

“There is no division, there is no schism among Europeans and we have to preserve that. That is our number one mission this year,” Zelenskiy said in a video address to a conference in Lithuania.

“Europe is helping itself. It is not helping Ukraine to face Russia, it is helping Europe to face Russian aggression,” he added.

Much of Ukraine remains without heat or power after the most devastating Russian air strikes on its power grid yet, and in Kiev, residents have been warned to prepare for further attacks and stock up on water, food and warm clothing.

European Union (EU) governments remained divided on Thursday over what level to cap Russian oil prices to reduce Moscow’s ability to pay for the war. Zelenskiy urged EU leaders to set the lowest bid of $30.

“Price cuts are very important. [propostas para definir o limite por barril em] $60 or $70. These words sound more like a concession [à Rússia]”, said Zelesnkiy.

“I am very grateful to our Baltic and Polish colleagues for their very reasonable proposals to fix this field at $30 a barrel. It is a much better idea,” he said.
