Ukraine: [“War has come”] The two vital pieces from President Zelensky’s address today

Usually on such days we used to say: “Spring has come”. But now we are saying: “War has come”. But we will definitely defeat everyone no matter what. Because we are free people of a free country” (Zelensky, 19.03.2022).

Today is the 24th day of the Russian-Belorussian invasion of Ukraine. On this day President Volodymyr Zelensky has clearly come with a message. He is continuing his statement and being persistent in the will of the sovereign and territorial integrity of Ukraine. That is abundantly clear and his still willing to speak to the aggressor and directly hold peace-talks.

This showing will, which Kremlin and Moscow is downplaying. He is clear in the message, but certainly the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Russia will say otherwise. They will try to deflect this and say it is postering. While we are only seeing their unfair and biased demands, which isn’t dignified for a sovereign. Therefore the negotiations between the parties are on unequal grounds, as the Russian parties at this stage expects Ukraine to be demilitarized and “neutral” after they have been violated and felt the suffering by the Russian armies.

Therefore, negotiations on peace, on security for us, for Ukraine – meaningful, fair and without delay – are the only chance for Russia to reduce the damage from its own mistakes. We have always insisted on negotiations. We have always offered dialogue, offered solutions for peace. Not only during 23 days of invasion. And I want everyone to hear me now, especially in Moscow. It’s time to meet. Time to talk. It is time to restore territorial integrity and justice for Ukraine. Otherwise, Russia’s losses will be so huge that several generations will not be enough to rebound” (Zelensky, 19.03.2022).

What is really striking here, which will be for both parties. This war will be detrimental for both nations for the next generations. As they have both been affected, which will be reflected on a lost generation. Since, the men and people was internally displaced within Ukraine. While the Russians are losing financially and integration with the rest of the world. The Russians are also losing manpower and soldiers who fought a meaningless war on behalf of the will of Putin. Instead of making things better for the next generation. They did on the plights of one man’s wish to conquer Kyiv and install his puppet regime there.

But the occupiers continue to block the supply of humanitarian aid to the besieged cities in most areas. This is a totally deliberate tactic. They have a clear order to do absolutely everything to make the humanitarian catastrophe in Ukrainian cities an “argument” for Ukrainians to cooperate with the occupiers. This is a war crime. They will be held accountable for this. 100%. Every Russian figure who gives such orders and every Russian soldier who carries out such orders will be identified. And will receive a compulsory one-way ticket to The Hague. To the city where the International Criminal Court is located” (Zelensky, 19.03.2022).

This is showing what has been said and how the Russians operate. They have become more vicious and uses civilians as cannon-fodder. They are targeting towns and cities filled with people. Blowing up shelters and sending missiles against convoys. That just shows what extent and what they are willing to do. Just to “win” by conquering and totally destroy their enemy. Which they are supposed to be able to impose a new regime in. Where they are supposed to be the good guys, but instead acts like villains. The Russians soldiers and commanders has to be held accountable for their violations against the Geneva conventions. That is just necessary as they are killing civilians and targeting humanitarian assistance into war-zones. They have forewarned, but that doesn’t justify it.

President Zelensky is a voice of reason in the midst of war. “War has come” and no one asked for it. Peace.
