Zelensky: Moscow is destroying what it accomplished in 25 years


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Moscow, through its attack on his country, is destroying everything that Russian society has achieved in the past 25 years, and will return to the 1990s.


This came in a speech that Zelensky addressed to his people on Friday, noting that the Russian attack on his country has been going on for 23 days.

He pointed out that Ukraine will build everything anew and become a member of the European Union.

He stressed that the Russian army continues to bomb Ukrainian cities, adding: “Although we do not have sufficient and advanced weapons, we have shot down Russian missiles and destroyed their planes and helicopters as much as we could.”

He stressed that Ukraine will continue to do what it can, addressing Western leaders, saying: “If Ukraine does not obtain advanced weapons that will save the lives of thousands of our people, this will be a moral defeat for them and will destroy their standing.”


On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine, which was followed by angry international reactions and the imposition of “tough” economic and financial sanctions on Moscow.

Russia requires Ukraine to abandon any plans to join military entities, including the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, “NATO”, and to adhere to complete neutrality, which Kyiv considers an “interference in its sovereignty” to end the operation.
