We will not give in to provocations, Zelensky is quoted as saying.

He thanked Michel and other EU leaders for keeping their diplomats in and supporting his country through their efforts, the readout added. Zelensky also emphasized the need to impose “preventive sanctions” against Russia to curb any aggressive intentions.

We understand all the risks and are ready for any scenario. But we have been in this situation since 2014. And today our biggest enemy is panic,” Zelensky said.

The leaders also discussed increasing Ukraine’s defence and financial stability and further practical cooperation with the European Union, the readout said.
