"He has his hands in blood up to his elbows" Zelensky explained why he does not want to talk to Putin
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has explained why he does not want and will not talk to Russian President Vladimir Putin. According to him, earlier there was still an opportunity to end the war through diplomacy, but now as the dictator has "hands in blood up to his elbows", there is nothing to negotiate with him about.
This became clear more than a year ago after the liberation of Bucha in the Kyiv region, as mass graves of civilians tortured by the occupiers were discovered there. Zelensky said this while speaking to African media representatives (to watch the video, scroll to the end of the page).
"People with tied hands, feet, violent deaths, tortured, buried in mass graves. Well, who's willing to talk to this maniac? Yes, we said that the time will come and the war will still end diplomatically, but to talk to this man...Well, excuse me, he has his hands in blood up to his elbows, he doesn't care," the guarantor noted.
The head of state emphasized that the leader of the aggressor country had decided to kill everyone who disagrees "with his absolutely fascist ideology." Ukrainians are now fighting for the right to be human beings. Putin is trying to offer them a slave existence but he does not realize that this is impossible.
"He only understands force. He understands as long as he has this or that weapon, as long as he has a population of many millions who are ready to go and fight, just to take people's lives and rights, that's why he's so brave. Easy to be brave when you have millions of people that you can throw like that. But when you have millions of people that you need to save, you have a different attitude to war, you are not ready to start any military action," Zelensky explained.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, Volodymyr Zelensky explained to representatives of the African press the reasons for a full-scale war, in which Ukraine does not intend to surrender and capitulate. These reasons are not only in state ambitions and national dignity, but also in ordinary rights, which we can lose if we allow Russia to defeat us.
