"We will put terrorist state in its place": Zelenskyy on brutal Kherson shelling
This Russian shelling did not and could not have any military purpose, as well as thousands of similar Russian attacks, which are a real message from Russia to the world
Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced this in his evening address.
"The Russian army has once again brutally shelled Kherson today. There are wounded and dead. My condolences to all those who have lost their loved ones...
The terrorist state is trying to tell the world that terror is allegedly something to be reckoned with by firing rockets at city streets, at residential buildings, at schools, at pharmacies and hospitals, at churches, at bus stops, at markets, at power stations...
I am confident that we will put a terrorist state in its place. All together: Ukrainians and the world.
Our army, our intelligence, our Security Service and other Ukrainian forces will find and destroy those who are carrying out these brutal attacks on Kherson, on our other cities and regions. And more broadly, we will prove that only humanity, only the UN Charter and only the right of every nation to live freely and securely from terror and insane aggressions like Russia’s are to be reckoned with," Zelenskyy emphasized.
On February 21, Russian troops carried out about 20 strikes on Kherson. Five local residents died and 16 were injured.
