The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy has addressed Ukrainians and stated that the sanctions against Russia which have been imposed by the West are not enough.
“The aggressor’s impudence is a clear signal for the West that the imposed sanctions are not enough. They haven’t understood. They haven’t felt it. They haven’t seen that the world is really determined. That the world is actually trying to stop the war. You will not hide from this reality. You will not hide from the new killings in Ukraine”.
The President has also thanked everyone who stays and defends Ukrainian cities, even in besiegement.
“I am grateful to each Ukrainian who, even in besiegement, stays to defend our cities. Our freedom. But I also know that there are people who do need to go out. Who cannot stay. And we have heard the promise that there would be humanitarian corridors. But there aren’t any. Instead of humanitarian, they are only able to ensure bloody corridors”.
In his speech, the President also mentioned the family killed in Irpin during the evacuation.
“How many families like this have died in Ukraine! We will never forgive. We will never forget. We will punish everyone who commits atrocities in this war. We will find every bastard who bombarded our cities. Our people. Who bombarded our land. Who fired missiles. Who gave orders and pressed launch.
For you, there won’t be a single quiet place on Earth.
Except for a grave.”
As a reminder, president Volodymyr Zelenskyy signed a degree on creating a Ukrainian delegation for participating in the oral hearings of the UN International Court of Justice on the crime of genocide and punishment for it, under the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.
