President of Ukraine urges sanctions on Russia to stop a possible invasion and not after.

The Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelesky stated to Western leaders at a Munich security conference on Saturday that he wanted sanctions imposed against Russia prior to any possible invasion of his country.

President of Ukraine urges sanctions on Russia to stop a possible invasion and not after.

"You tell me it's 100% that war will begin in a few days. What are you waiting for? Zelensky said. "We don’t need your sanctions after the bombardment of our country, or after we have no borders or economy, or after we have been fired upon. "Why would we need these sanctions?"

"So, when you ask what can be done, there are many options. The list can be provided to you. He said that willingness is the most important thing.
Kamala Harris, the U.S. Vice President for International Affairs, warned that Russia could face financial sanctions if it invades.

She stated that she could say with absolute certainty that Russia would invade Ukraine if it continued. The United States and its allies and partners will then impose severe economic and unimaginable costs."

Zelensky also met her.

According to the White House, "They discussed the united Transatlantic strategy if Russia invades Ukraine further and the Vice President described the swift and severe economic actions that have been prepared alongside Our Allies and Partners." "The Vice President and President Zelenskyy agreed to the importance of diplomacy, de-escalation."

The Munich Security Conference is an annual event that prevents another war in Europe.

Lloyd Austin, the U.S. Secretary for Defense, stated Saturday that Russia was "uncoiling" and is now ready to strike.

Delegates were unsure if Zelensky should leave Ukraine, with Russian invasion imminent.

Zelensky answered a question about the topic by saying that he had eaten breakfast in Ukraine and would like to eat dinner there.

"I am certain that our country is safe and sound. These are not my hands, these are the hands of our soldiers. He said, "I think my visit here was important."

Zelensky stated that the current crisis in Ukraine is not only regional but global.

He said, "This system is slowing down and failing us repeatedly because of the arrogance of countries on a worldwide level."

Zelensky stated that he would like to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in order to find a solution for the crisis.

"Ukraine longs for peace, Europe longs for peace. The world is saying that it doesn't desire any war while Russia claims she doesn't want the intervention -- someone is lying here."
