Zelenskyy again on Time cover: "Nobody believes in our victory like I do. Nobody!"

The President stressed that if the Russians are not stopped in Ukraine, the fighting will spread beyond its borders. 

The American magazine Time has dedicated the cover of its new issue and an article to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. This was reported on the magazine's website.

"Nobody believes in our victory like I do. Nobody," Zelenskyy said in an interview after a trip to the United States in September. This quote appeared on the cover of the November issue.


Time columnist Simon Schuster writes, citing anonymous sources close to the Ukrainian president, that he seems to "feel betrayed by his Western allies" who "left him without the means to win the war, only to survive it." Nevertheless, he is not going to give up fighting and sign a truce with the occupiers, and his belief in Ukraine's victory "worries some of his advisers".

"For us it would mean leaving this wound open for future generations. Maybe it will calm some people down inside our country, and outside, at least those who want to wrap things up at any price. But for me, that’s a problem, because we are left with this explosive force. We only delay its detonation... Freezing the war, to me, means losing it," Zelenskyy explained.

According to him, if the Russians are not stopped in Ukraine, the fighting will spread beyond its borders.

"A third world war could start in Ukraine, continue in Israel, and move on from there to Asia, and then explode somewhere else," he said.

The newspaper notes that Zelenskyy's last visit to Washington, where he addressed Congress and spoke with the country's leadership, did not yield the results he had hoped for. However, now the Ukrainian president "is intent on winning the war on Ukrainian terms, and he is shifting tactics to achieve that".

"Aware that the flow of Western arms could dry up over time, the Ukrainians have ramped up production of drones and missiles, which they have used to attack Russian supply routes, command centers, and ammunition depots far behind enemy lines," Time explained.

In 2019, Zelenskyy became the first president of Ukraine to appear on the cover of Time.
