"If Ukraine fails to hold out, Putin will definitely invade the Baltic States. Why? Not because of any idea or strategy. Putin wants to regain the influence of the Soviet Union," Zelenskyy said.

The Ukrainian leader noted that Putin wants to "return all the former republics of the Soviet Union."

"Whether they are in NATO or not – he is not interested in that. He is not afraid of NATO countries," the president stated.

After the Baltic states, according to Zelenskyy, Poland and part of Germany will be under attack.

On April 11, Finnish President Alexander Stubb called on NATO to prepare its armies for a conflict with Russia.

On April 18, PM Denys Shmyhal said that if Ukraine loses the war, the third world war may break out.
