Earlier today, on April 11, President Volodymyr Zelensky made a statement directed to lawmakers during a video speech held in the auditorium of the National Assembly Library in Seoul, South Korea.

President Zelensky said, "I thank the National Assembly of the Republic of Korea for providing this opportunity on behalf of all the people of Ukraine who are facing the all-out Russian advance."

He continued, "Every country has the right to independence. Every city has the right to live in peace, and everyone has the right not to die in war. I ask you to stand up and face Russia."

Referring to Korea's 6.25 War, he emphasized, "Fellow Koreans, there was a war in the 1950s, and many civilians lost their lives, but Korea overcame it. At that time, the international community helped a lot. There is no expectation that Russia would change on its own. We must make Russia choose to change through the mobilization of the international community.” 

On this day, the Ukrainian president also requested military assistance from Korea. "We need more help to survive and win the war with Russia." He added, "I would be grateful if you could help us in the Republic of Korea to fight Russia."

I’m sorry to be the one to say this, but I don’t think South Korea will help. Not to mention that they have that military system, because they’re scared North Korea will attack. If he’s asking for supplies, then I believe they can help. I feel so bad for Ukraine ,and their president.

They most likely won't join unless the war threatens them or unless their allies join. Basic international relations theory. There's nothing in it for them atm
