It is now dangerous for all countries to stay away from helping Ukraine, because "when everyone helps one – everyone's freedom wins", President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated during an address to the Lithuanian people, together with the country's President Gitanas Nausėda.

Zelenskyy believes that if a catastrophic "day after Ukraine" comes, Russia will do everything to make the "day after Moldova" come, and later the "day after the Baltics" and the "day after Poland".

He stated that Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan "already hear that Russia despises their independence", has no respect for the nations of the Caucasus, and has an "overt desire to manipulate everyone".

"It's dangerous for everyone to be quiet now, it's dangerous to stay away or alone. When everyone helps one – everyone's freedom wins," Zelenskyy emphasized and added that this rule has worked repeatedly in history and will work now.

In the president's opinion, any empire is built "on the first fragments after a decisive defeat of freedom". He believes that the capture of Ukraine is needed by Moscow for this very reason.

"We are changing history for the better together. There will be no 'day after Ukraine', there will be a day after the war, there will be a day after Putin," Zelenskyy stated.

He also expressed confidence that the day will come when Russia retreats, although it is currently impossible to name a specific day when this will happen.

"Our freedom will prevail. There will be such a day. The first day after victory – our day," he concluded.
