Ukraine Nato plea


Volodymyr Zelenskiy, the Ukrainian president, has made a desperate call for his country to join Nato as Russia continues to build its military presence at the border. Zelenskiy, elected in 2018 on a promise to end fighting in eastern Ukraine, spoke out yesterday about the increasing number of fatalities in the conflict in recent months. He told Jens Stoltenber­g, head of the Western alliance, that “Nato is the only way to end the war”. Stoltenber­g expressed serious concern about “Russia’s military activities in and around Ukraine and ongoing ceasefire violations”.
