- Ukrainian leader calls for ‘maximum’ sanctions against Russia
He also said that businesses needed to ‘completely withdraw’ from Russia, and that there should be no trade with the country in order for the world to set a precedent.
He called for the ‘maximum’ sanctions to be implemented, as the current ones had not yet reached that level.
And he said an oil embargo was also necessary.
If aggressors lose everything, countries would lose motivation to start wars, said the Ukrainian president.
He also highlighted during his virtual address that the war wouldn’t have happened if preventative sanctions had been applied to Russia.
