Zelensky compares Ukraine to Medieval Europe amid protests in Novi Sanzhary.


President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky believes in the rapid return of Ukrainians, evacuated from China, to their families. He said this during a speech at a business forum, which was broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV Channel.

He added that he was concerned about the behavior of Ukrainians who had opposed the placement of evacuees in the sanatoriums that were located near the inhabited areas.

"Honestly, we keep saying that Ukraine is Europe. So yesterday, frankly, in some episodes, it seemed like we were Medieval Europe, unfortunately. We should not forget that we all are people," the head of state noted.
