President was supposed to explain the release of Berkut to hundreds of Heavenly families, but went to the opening of the bridge
Sometimes the only thing left when dealing with a cannibal is to simply stand by his victim. By eater, I mean Putin and his regime. He unscrewed our hands and put us in a situation that basically should not be.
I just returned from the court of appeal, which released the Berkutsk people under personal obligation. Everyone understood what the decision of the panel would be. But when it was announced, a wave of hatred swept through the hall. I closed my eyes for a moment because I felt it on the physical level.
I will not comment on the exchanges. I have too little information about the content of negotiations, and at stake, human lives. Any abstract reflections on this topic cause real pain to both the people who have lost loved ones on the Maidan and the people who have lived in the hope and despair of seeing their loved ones at home for several years.
I will not comment on the procedure itself. It is just beyond the law.
But one thing I will say for sure. It’s about communication. The office of the President is responsible for the exchanges, and it is very likely that tomorrow when people return from captivity (which I very much hope), then Vladimir Zelensky will be the first to meet them again in September.
But today he had to find the courage and meet with the families of the Heavenly Hundreds and the Victims, who had only learned about the appeal in the morning and at least in a closed format, but honestly explained to them the situation. They are entitled to it. And he had to take that responsibility.
Instead, the president went to the opening of a bridge in the village of Dovge-Kalusko. And this is clearly not human.
