Russia will pay the price of war for generations: Zelensky

Lviv (Ukraine), March 19 (agency) Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said that Russian forces are besieging major cities and want to create such a pathetic situation that the citizens of Ukraine will have to cooperate with them. However, Zelensky warned on Saturday that the strategy would not be successful and that Russia would suffer in the long run if it did not end the war. The President of Ukraine accused the Kremlin (Russian President’s Office) of deliberately creating a ‘humanitarian crisis’. In his video message to the nation, Zelensky said, ‘This is a completely premeditated move. Just picture for yourself that in that stadium in Moscow there are 14,000 dead bodies and thousands of injured people. This is the price Russia has paid so far in the war.” The video was recorded outside in Kyiv, with the presidential office behind them. “The time has come to restore territorial integrity and bring justice to Ukraine,” the Ukrainian president said. Otherwise, Russia will have to pay a heavy price for not doing so, from which they will not be able to rise for generations.’ Zelensky again urged Putin to meet him directly. He said, ‘It’s time to meet, time to talk. I want everyone to listen to me, especially in Moscow.’ Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin organized a massive rally in praise of his army amid fierce shelling by Russian troops on Ukrainian cities. Russia’s president addressed a packed Moscow stadium on Friday and said Kremlin soldiers fought “shoulder to shoulder” and supported each other. He told the enthusiastic crowd, ‘This kind of unity had not been seen for a long time.’ The invasion led to anti-war protests within Russia, and the rally was suspected of whether it was a Kremlin-produced display of patriotism. The event took place when Russia suffered more losses than expected on the battlefield. Police said there were more than 200,000 people in and around Luzhniki Stadium for the Moscow event, which sang patriotic songs such as ‘Made in the USSR’ with the opening lyrics ‘Ukraine and Crimea, Belarus and Moldova, it is all’. My country. Putin’s appearance marked a change in contrast to his relatively isolated stay during recent weeks, when he has been shown meeting with world leaders and his staff at extraordinarily long tables or via videoconferencing . Three Russian cosmonauts arrived at the International Space Station on Friday wearing bright yellow and blue flight suits matching the colors of the Ukrainian flag. Since the start of the war, many people have used Ukraine’s flag and its colors to show solidarity with the country. Vladimir Medinsky, who led Russian negotiators in several rounds of talks with Ukraine, said after the rally that the two sides had moved closer to an agreement on Ukraine not joining NATO and adopting a neutral position. He said, quoting Russian media, that the two sides had come about half a distance on the issue of demilitarization of Ukraine.
