Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky calls for further sanctions against Russia in one of his regular televised addresses, saying the global community must not fund terror.
“If the situation gets worse then new actions need to be introduced to bring peace,” he says, according to a translation by Sky News.
Zelensky says the world must “refuse to give money to terrorists.”
“They have targeted Mykolaiv and Kharkiv and burned residential areas. It’s terror,” he says. “We must fight against inhumane evil.”
“We have a yellow and blue flag that has flown in space and in Antarctica. We have never killed peaceful people while flying this flag,” he says.
“Ukraine and terror are completely different notions. We will never have swastikas in Ukraine,” Zelensky says in an apparent reference to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s false claim that Ukraine needs “denazifying.”
