A reporter asked Zelensky about recent polls that, "are suggesting that a growing number of Americans believe that the US is giving too much support to Ukraine. What would your message be to those Americans on that anniversary?"
The one year anniversary of Russia's invasion of their neighbor Ukraine fell this week.
"I would like to thank the American people," Zelensky began, in his sweatshirt emblazoned with a small Ukranian flag, "I would like to thank all of the American people who are supporting Ukraine. The Congress, the president, the TV channels, the journalists, and everyone that has been supporting us.
"And that percentage of Americans as you've mentioned is increasing, I can tell them only one thing: If they do not change their opinion, if they do not understand us, if they do not support Ukraine, they will lose NATO, they will lose the clout of the United States, they will lose the leadership position that they enjoy in the world, that they enjoy in the world. That they enjoy for a very fair reason.
"And they will lose the support of the country with 40 million population, with millions of children. Are Americans' children any different from ours?" Zelensky said. "Don't Americans enjoy the same things as we do? I don't think we're that different."
