Ukrainians are in 'mortal danger' if the West abandons them, warns Olena Zelenska | The Sun

UKRAINIANS are in “mortal danger” if the West abandons them, the country’s first lady has warned.

Olena Zelenska said her people will be left to die if the world stops sending financial aid in the fight against Vladimir Putin’s illegal invasion.

It comes after Republican senators in the US blocked a bill to provide nearly £50 billion in fresh support to Ukraine.
