Volodymyr Zelenskyy said this in the National Assembly (Parliament) of France.

"We must remember that there is an enemy outside that leaves neither nations nor people. Where it comes, there is no right to language or the opportunity to choose how people live. Look at what Russian control is - it is the scorched deserted ruins of our villages and cities. And this is a fact,” the president said.

According to him, dictator Putin is turning his country into a territory of “devalued life, literally the reverse side of everything that is valuable to you and me.”

"The opposite of freedom, the opposite of equality, the opposite of brotherhood, and therefore the opposite of Europe - that's what Putin is.  There are no limits for evil, either 80 years ago or now. If someone tries to draw temporary lines, it will give a pause before a new war. Hitler crossed line after line, and Putin is doing the same today,” Zelenskyy emphasized.

Details on Zelenskyy's visit

Earlier it was reported that Volodymyr Zelenskyy plans to meet with US President Joe Biden in France during the celebration of the 80th anniversary of the Allied landings in Normandy on June 6.

The leaders will discuss the situation in Ukraine and how the United States can continue and deepen its support for Ukraine.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy will also meet with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron. On June 7, Zelenskyy will be received at the National Assembly, the French parliament. There, the President of Ukraine is scheduled to deliver a speech before meeting with the President of the Assembly, Yaël Braun-Pivet.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy arrived on a visit to France on Thursday, June 6.
