Russian war began with Crimea and must end with its liberation – Zelenskyy

Russian war began with Crimea and must end with its liberation – Zelenskyy

Russian war began with Crimea and must end with Crimea – with its liberation, President Zelenskyy said in his evening address.

“This Russian war against Ukraine and against the entire free Europe began with Crimea and must end with Crimea – with its liberation.

Russia has turned our peninsula, which has always been and will be one of the best places in Europe, into one of the most dangerous places in Europe.

How many lives in Ukraine, Georgia, Syria, and more remote regions were lost because Russia used Crimea as a military base – 10k? 100k?” he asked, adding that there will be no safety in the Black Sea, Mediterranean regions while the peninsula is occupied.

“But we will return to the Ukrainian Crimea.

From the Kharkiv region to Kherson, from Donetsk to Enerhodar, from Stanytsia Luhanska to Yalta, from Berdiansk to Novofedorivka – these are all parts of our country, this is Ukraine, which will be completely free,” he said, adding that Ukraine is preparing to hold a session of the Crimean Platform, an international initiative directed at liberating the peninsula.
