Against the background of the attack on Ukraine, the Russian leadership is turning its country into an area isolated from the rest of the world, where poverty and violence will prevail.
“As a result of the attack on our land, on Ukraine, the Russian leadership is actually turning its state into an analogue of the so-called ‘DPR’ and ‘LPR’. Into a large area isolated from the rest of the world. Where poverty will reign. Where everything will be determined only by violence. And where people will flee. In any manner they can and whoever can,” President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said in his address.
He mentioned those who leaving Russia and withdrawing their business.
“These are professionals who can be competitive at the global market. These are IT specialists who do not want to live in an area where there is no freedom. These are businessmen who feel that everything will be taken away from them at any moment. These are artists who know that creativity in a territory where human life is worthless is also worthless. Russia loses its brains. Loses talent. Loses money,” the President of Ukraine stressed.
Zelensky underscored that the Russian occupiers cannot conquer Ukrainians as they “do not have such strength, they do not have such spirit.”
“They are holding only on violence. Only on terror. Only on weapons, which they have a lot. But the invaders have no natural basis for normal life. So that people can feel happy and dream. They are organically incapable of making life normal! Wherever Russia has come to a foreign land, dreams are impossible. Only a very hard struggle for survival,” Zelensky said.
On February 24, Russian president Putin declared war on Ukraine and launched a large-scale invasion. Russian troops shell and destroy infrastructure, conduct massive shelling of residential areas of Ukrainian cities and towns using artillery, MLRS, and ballistic missiles.
