Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in his latest video published on Thursday evening (May 27) that Russians kill, torture, rape and humiliate like a conveyor belt in so-called “filtration camps.” He also referred to the situation in Donetsk airport that eight years ago stopped working.
“No matter what the Russian state does, there is always someone who says: let’s take its interests into account. This year in Davos it was heard again. Despite thousands of Russian missiles hitting Ukraine. Despite tens of thousands of Ukrainians killed. Despite Bucha and Mariupol, etc. Despite the destroyed cities. And despite the “filtration camps” built by the Russian state, in which they kill, torture, rape and humiliate like on a conveyor belt. Russia has done all this in Europe,” he said.
“But still in Davos, for example, Mr. Kissinger emerges from the deep past and says that a piece of Ukraine should be given to Russia. So that there is no alienation of Russia from Europe,” Zelensky added.
“Exactly eight years ago, on May 26, the Donetsk airport stopped working. On that day, apparently, no one foresaw how events in Donbas would develop over these years. And then – throughout Ukraine after a full-scale invasion. But that day and any day later, and today, two things can be said with confidence. First. Ukraine will always be an independent state and will not be broken. The only question is what price our people will have to pay for their freedom, and Russia – for this senseless war against us. And second. The catastrophic developments could have been stopped if the world had treated the situation in Ukraine as its own. If the strong of the world had not played with Russia, but really pressed to end the war,” he said.
“Our people united. We understand exactly who we are, how we differ from our neighbours, who is fighting for what. We are the same. An equally beautiful country. And we are all united,” Zelensky wrote on Telegram posting photos.
