Zelenskyy: Russia has already fired thousands of missiles at Ukraine | news
According to Ukrainian head of state Volodymyr Zelensky, Russia has already fired around 4,700 rockets at targets in the neighboring country since the start of the war of aggression against Ukraine. “Hundreds of our cities have practically burned down, thousands of people have been killed, hundreds of thousands have been deported to Russia,” said Zelenskyy on Sunday in a video message to the international organization of Francophonie, whose representatives met in Djerba, Tunisia. “And millions of people have left Ukraine to seek protection from the war in other countries,” he said.
Last Tuesday alone, Russia fired almost 100 rockets at Ukraine. “Hundreds of different missiles against our cities, against residential buildings, against companies, against power plants,” said Zelenskyy. As a result of these attacks, more than 20 million people were temporarily without power. Zelenskyy asked the member states of Francophonie for help. “Ukraine really wants peace. But to restore peace, we need support.” A return to peace is quite possible, he said. “But it is possible if everyone in the world understands that nobody in the world deserves a single day of terror.”/cha/DP/he
