Zelenskyy called the Russian occupation “cannibalism”, but said the source of Ukraine’s strength lies in its will to hold on. He met host Zakaria during an outdoor walk-through interview, which Zakaria said was important given the threats to Zelenskyy’s life.
“We have no other way, and it is not our weakness. I believe this is our strength. Because Russia has a way out. They can go home. We have only this house to defend,” Zelenskyy said of his country’s military efforts.
The war lasted 200 days on Sunday, after Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded in February.
“I would like to say immediately that I am grateful to President Biden and the White House and the bipartisan support,” Zelenskyy told Zakaria, adding, “Without this support, we cannot return our lands.”
