President Volodymyr Zelensky considers the violation of the airspace of Moldova and Romania by russian missiles as another proof that terror knows no borders, while Ukraine protects Europe and the whole world.

He stated this in his latest video address.

"Several russian missiles passed through the airspace of Moldova and Romania. That is another proof that terror knows and will never know any borders, another proof that the protection of Ukraine is the protection of all of Europe and the world, of every country that wants to live. Today's missiles are a challenge to NATO and collective security. This is the terror that can and must be stopped. The world must stop it," Zelensky emphasized.
