Ukraine’s allies are building a coalition that must force Russian President Vladimir Putin to accept peace, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Thursday.

“Ukraine’s allies are building a coalition against Putin,” Zelensky said on Thursday. 

He urged the international community to take action to force Moscow to halt its attack on Ukraine.

“We are building an anti-Putin coalition. The world must force Russia to (accept) peace,” Zelenskyj wrote on Twitter after talking to leaders from the US, EU, UK, Germany, and Poland.
