Zelensky thanks French parliament for labeling Wagner Group as terrorists

The French parliament has recognized the Wagner private military company as terrorists.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said this in his address at the end of day 440 of the war.

He thanked the French parliament for today's decision to recognize the Russian pseudo-private Wagner group as a terrorist organization.

"This is something that should be adopted by the entire world - every manifestation of terrorism must be destroyed, and every terrorist must be convicted," Zelensky said.

He also thanked the United States for a new defense aid package.

"There is more good news from our partners. From what can be said publicly, there is a new defense package from the United States. The total amount is $1.2 billion. Artillery, protection against terrorist missiles and drones, and other things to strengthen our defenders. I thank President Biden, the Congress - both parties - and every American family for their unwavering support and for the American strength that makes us stronger," he said.

At the same time, Zelensky noted that Ukraine was also working with other partners on additional defense packages to add new opportunities for Ukrainian warriors.
