The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a video address after Russia’s recent missile attack, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“All this war that you are waging, it is not the war with NATO, as your propagandists lie. It is not for something historical. It’s for one person to remain in power until the end of his life. And what will be with all of you, citizens of Russia, does not concern him. Your leader wants to show that he has the troops behind him and that he is ahead. But he is just hiding. He hides behind the troops, behind missiles, behind the walls of his residences and palaces. He hides behind you and burns your country and your future,” Zelensky said.
In his words, no one will ever forgive Russia for terror. No one in the world will forgive Russia for this, and Ukraine will never forgive.
“The terrorist state will not be forgiven. And those who give orders for such strikes, and those who carry them out, will not receive a pardon. To put it mildly. Several missile attack waves on New Year’s Day. Missiles against people. It’s against the people. NONhumans did it, NONhumans will lose. And you and I know it. Terrorists cannot change it. At Easter, they made such attacks, at Christmas, at New Year... They call themselves Christians, they are very proud of their Orthodoxy. But they are following the devil. They support him and are together with him,” Zelensky stressed.
A reminder that, on December 31, 2022, Russia launched another missile attack on Ukraine’s energy and civil infrastructure.
