FOX News correspondent Benjamin Hall recently sat down with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy for a wide-ranging interview during his first visit to Ukraine since he was nearly killed while covering the war in March 2022.
The two discussed whether Ukraine’s war against Russia has reached a stalemate and the Israel-Hamas war, now in its seventh week, has overshadowed Ukraine’s efforts.

Zelenskyy acknowledged that the Israel-Hamas conflict is a challenge for the world, but warned that ignoring Russia comes at the West’s own peril.
“We gave a lot of messages to Iran not to give [Russia] drones, not to give them licenses for production and for building the new factory of production of drones,” Zelenskyy said.
Per the Pentagon, Russia has relied on Iranian-supplied unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) in Ukraine throughout the war to compensate for its diminishing stockpiles.
Zelenskyy argued that Ukraine is at “the center of global risks” and that Russia will continue to be emboldened by its actions without significant pushback from the global community.
