In his regular nightly speech, President Zelenskyy stated that there could be no condition under which any Russian attack on Ukraine would be justified.
As the war between Russia and Ukraine continues unabated, embattled President Volodymyr Zelenskyy declared in his routine nightly address that there could be no condition under which any Russian attack on Ukraine would be justified. He added that Putin’s decision to attack a neighboring country was “unprovoked, invasive and openly terrorist”.
Speaking about the attacks led by the Russian occupiers, Zelenskyy said that Kremlin forces were again firing on Toretsk and Donetsk region, targeting public transport stops. He added that a total of eight civilians died and three children were injured when Russian missiles damaged high-rise buildings, including the Church of St. Panteleimon, where the priest was also wounded.
“It was a deliberate strike by the occupiers, another act of terror – cynical and calculated. They knew where they were going to strike and obviously wanted people to be hurt,” Zelenskyy said.
Several international organizations trying to cover up Russian war crimes: Zelenskyj
Zelenksyy also said that some international organizations do not report war crimes committed by Russia. “We do not see clear and timely reports from some international organizations about this and thousands of other crimes committed by Russian terrorists. Today we saw a completely different report from Amnesty International, which unfortunately tries to amnesty the terrorist state and shift responsibility from the aggressor to the victim,” he added.
“There can be no condition, even hypothetically, under which any Russian attack on Ukraine would become justified. Aggression against our state is unprovoked, invasive and openly terroristic.” He added: “If someone makes a report in which the victim and the aggressor are said to be the same, if any data about the victim is analyzed and what the aggressor was doing at the time is ignored, that cannot be tolerated.”
Speaking about the extent of the damage caused by the Russian invaders, Zelenskyi said that at least 200 religious buildings, temples and prayer houses of various faiths were damaged or destroyed, as well as about 900 medical facilities, over 2,200 educational institutions, dozens of universities, and hundreds of schools and kindergartens.
“The Russian army did not refrain from striking at the monuments to the victims of the Holocaust, in the cemeteries. In the camp with prisoners of war in Olenivka. For some reason, there are no reports about this. This is immoral selectivity,” he added. he claimed. Zelenskyi further blasted media channels that present news in favor of Moscow, reiterating that anyone who supports Russia or tries to justify this invasion must understand that it will directly or indirectly help terrorists. “And if you provide manipulative news, then you share responsibility with them for the death of people,” he added.
