Zelenskyy compares Ukraine and Israel situation, highlights key difference
Today, on October 9, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated during his speech at the plenary session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly that Israel was attacked by a terrorist organization and Ukraine by a terrorist state
He made the statement on the meeting, broadcast by Espreso TV.
"Today our attention is focused on the Middle East. No one can forget what the terrorists did in Israel. They fired thousands of missiles against civilians. They shoot people in cars, women and children who want to escape. We have seen this. We saw blood flowing in the streets. The terrorists themselves are filming the atrocities they are proud of. They beat women, kidnap elderly people and children from their homes. We still do not know how many people have been captured and killed. They even tried to humiliate and mock the bodies of the dead. We saw all this in Israel. And we know that Israeli journalists, when they were here in Ukraine, in Bucha, saw the evil that Russia was bringing. They now see this evil on the territory of their own country. The difference is that Israel is now under attack by a terrorist organization, and Ukraine is under attack by a terrorist state," the President of Ukraine emphasized.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted that the essence of this evil is the same.
"I am convinced that, first of all, it is very important to know who supported Russian propaganda. Again, the children who were taken and held are called trophies by Russian propagandists. Secondly, Russia and Iran support this. Iran sends Shaheds to Russia, saying that it is not involved in what is happening in Ukraine. Iran is now supporting what is happening in Israel. How much further can this evil go? It can go as far as we allow it to go. That is why we must now make sure that our desire for peace surpasses their desire for blood. Such efforts will help restore the international order," Zelenskyy emphasized.
