President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke at the meeting on Friday, Oct. 13, in the Joint Expeditionary Force format. In his address he emphasized the need for geopolitical stability in the whole Euro-Atlantic space, and also talked about the work of our state on new cooperation formats in the Black Sea region, the website of the President of Ukraine reports.

“It does not mean that capabilities of one nation are too weak. It means that the task we face is too big. We need reliable geopolitical stability in Europe and, more broadly, in the whole Euro-Atlantic space,” – Zelensky stated.

He said that while NATO nations are part of the Euro-Atlantic space,  not all democratic countries are engaged in the same form of defense.

“That’s why Ukraine, being on the road to NATO, is developing a system of security guarantees... Geopolitical stability is the basic element for all other forms of stability. Can a nation alone guarantee geopolitical stability for itself? Definitely not. Can the main Alliance existing on our continent, NATO, do this? Yes, but only if its members know how to be allies,” he said.

Zelensky said that the capabilities of large alliances grow on the basis of meaningful local cooperation.

He explained: “Currently we are working on creating new formats of cooperation and strengthening the existing ones in our region – the Black Sea region.

“I visited Bucharest, and at the meeting with President Iohannis we agreed that the relations between our states, Ukraine and Romania, deserve the level of strategic partnership,” Zelensky said.

Putin Following in Stalin’s Genocidal Footsteps

Two years after Russia launched its full-scale attack to annul any remnant of an independent Ukraine, Putin’s genocidal intent is now impossible to deny.

“We are also working effectively in the Ukraine-Moldova-Romania triangle… Ukraine has extremely important cooperation with Bulgaria and Türkiye.”

Zelensky also spoke about new security prospects in the South Caucasus region neighboring the Black Sea. Especially thanks to Ukraine’s defense against Russian aggression, he said that now Georgia could get the chance to restore its territorial integrity.

“All of us are now at a historical turning point,” said Zelensky.

“We have only two options. Either terrorist Russia will succeed in breaking freedom. And then the zone of geopolitical instability, which exists in the east of Europe, will spread throughout the continent,” he warned.

“Or thanks to many levels and formats of cooperation, in particular regional ones, thanks to our common protection of freedom – Russia will lose in this confrontation. After it has lost, and as a result, a historic chance for geopolitical stability along the entire line from Scandinavia through Minsk and Kyiv to the South Caucasus will be realized,” Zelensky .concluded.

President Zelensky is preparing for a likely visit to Israel in a gesture of solidarity. The planned trip comes amidst the ongoing escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

But you can continue to live in your bubble, until
you realize the reality. And if the cost of living and
buying food is a bit more expensive. That is a price
I am willing to accept.

It really looks as if no one except the Baltic States and a few countries more take Zelensky seriously until it's too late. How deplorable.
