Zelensky urges people who “feel Donbas as Russia” to go look for place in Russia
President is convinced that Donbas “will never be Russian territory”
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky called on all those who “feel Donbas as Russia” to go and look for a place in Russian Federation. He said this in an interview with Dom TV channel, which will be broadcasted tonight.
Zelensky is confident that Donbas “will never be Russian territory.” According to him, no matter how long Donbas is occupied, “in any case, people, history will seize the moment, and the wall will collapse.”
“If you love Russia and think that all your life you have been on the territory of Ukraine, but felt it as Russia. If you feel that way, you should understand – in the name of your children and grandchildren you need to go look for a place in Russia,” the president said.
President also added that without Ukraine there would be no civilization in the temporarily occupied territories.
“Ukraine will grow and will build everything, unequivocally. Donbas in that form – in the occupied cut-off state will not grow. Therefore, there will be no happiness for these people there,” Zelensky added.
Earlier, Zelensky said that the return of Donbas, “silence” in Donbas, shelling and exchanges today depend on the will of Russia and the help of all partners of Ukraine and members of the Normandy four.
