Ukrainian Head of State Volodymyr Zelensky on Saturday called Russians, and in particular government officials, “you will kill one by one” as long as Russian President Vladimir Putin, who ordered the invasion of Ukraine, is in power.
“Until you all solve the problem of who started it all, and who started this senseless war against Ukraine, you will be killed one by one, and you will become a scapegoat, because you do not recognize that this war is a historical mistake for Russia,” Zelensky said in his speech daily.
The Ukrainian president also confirmed on Saturday that his army, which now controls the strategic city of Lyman, will “next week” take over other cities in the Donetsk region, which Russia annexed on Friday.
“During the week, new Ukrainian flags were raised over the Donbass River,” Zelensky said, where the Donetsk region is located. “There will be more next week.”
