“Do negotiations really help overcome terror? Terrorists are neutralized,” Zelenskyy says

“Do negotiations really help overcome terror? Terrorists are neutralized,” Zelenskyy says

Zelenskyy called on the official designation “at all levels” of Russia as a terrorist state in his evening address.

“Today I want to address those in the world who give in to Russian manipulations about the alleged negotiations. About an assumption that it is supposedly only negotiations that can end this brutal Russian terrorist war.

Does the terrorist state want peace? Obviously not. It proves that every day and every night,” he said.

Zelenskyy mentioned today’s “missile terror” in Zaporizhzhia where at least 14 people died as a result of Russian strikes on residential buildings. “Unfortunately, this number may increase. Debris is still being cleared. More than 70 people were injured, including 11 children. All of them are provided with proper aid,” he added.

“When someone wants to negotiate, he does not do so. And when someone is a terrorist, that’s exactly what he does. Do negotiations really help overcome terror? Now everyone has to answer this question honestly. Terrorists are neutralized. This has already happened in history. Last time another terrorist state was allowed to do what it wanted because the world powers were afraid of its terror, World War II started,” Zelenskyy stressed.

He called on the official designation “at all levels” of Russia as a terrorist state and “principled and sufficient aid” for Ukrainian people “who are targeted by the terrorist state.”

“It is necessary to accelerate the provision of a sufficient number of effective air defense systems to Ukraine,” Zelenskyy stressed.
