Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said “The stronger Ukraine will be, the weaker Russia will be, and therefore, the less time this war will last.”
“Everyone in Ukraine, everyone in the free world must do everything in their power and everything possible so that Russia and those who support the war pay an ever greater price for Russian state terror.” Zelensky said in a video address.
He added “Everyone in the free world must do everything in their power and everything possible, so that Russia and those who support the war pay an ever greater price for Russian state terror.”
“We are getting ready for the very active weeks of the second half of August – negotiations, meetings, the Crimea Platform, new appeals to foreign communities, international legal activity – on our initiative.”
The Ukranian leader continued “This week, I will continue to expand our ties with African states and the Latin American region. Important contacts will take place at the European level tomorrow. In a few days, a ceremony of the presentation of credentials by the ambassadors of foreign countries who came to work in Kyiv will take place. Although there is a certain pause in global politics now – after all, it is August, for Ukraine, for the interests of our state, there haven’t been and will not be any pauses.”
“We are working on new sanctions against Russia and on stimulating the citizens of the terrorist state to feel their share of responsibility for what is happening.” Zelensky added.
He went on to say “The discussion about visa restrictions in Europe for holders of Russian passports is expanding every day, new states and new politicians are joining it. Ultimately, this should lead to appropriate decisions.”
“I am grateful to our intelligence officers, law enforcement officers, journalists and everyone who works to establish the full data on the Russian killers. Ukraine and our partners are receiving more and more information about those directly responsible for terror and torture, for the so-called filtration and deportation of our people, for looting.”
