Politico’s Rundown on the War in Europe

From Politico Playbook:

THE LATEST FROM UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT VOLODYMYR ZELENSKYY: 

— “We will give weapons to anyone who wants to defend the country. Be ready to support Ukraine in the squares of our cities.”

— “We have severed diplomatic relations with Russia. For all those who have not yet lost their conscience in Russia, it is time to go out and protest against the war with Ukraine.”

— “Russia treacherously attacked our state in the morning, as Nazi Germany did in [World War II]. As of today, our countries are on different sides of world history. [Russia] has embarked on a path of evil, but [Ukraine] is defending itself & won’t give up its freedom no matter what Moscow thinks.”
