Western countries fear that Russia will lose the war against Ukraine. But it doesn't work that way, and they should give Ukraine the weapons to win, according to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

"I believe that our partners are afraid of the Russian Federation losing this war. They would like Ukraine to win so that Russia does not lose. Because it will be an unpredictable loss and unpredictable geopolitics," Zelenskyy says.

But, as the President says, "it doesn't work that way."

"For Ukraine to win, we need to give everything with which they win," he adds.

Victory in war

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said during his visit to Kyiv on May 15 that the United States is helping to provide Ukraine with the means to win the war.

According to the Democracy Perceptions Index 2024, 34% of people in 52 countries believe that the US, EU, and NATO have not done enough to help Ukraine during the war.

According to a poll by the Ukrainian Razumkov Center, at the end of March 2024, 83% of respondents in Ukraine believed in winning the war with Russia.

According to the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology, in February 2024, 49% of Ukrainians said that the West continues to support Ukraine. However, 44% believed that the West was tired of Ukraine and its support was weak.
