The Ukrainian president, Volodímir Zelenski, Today he drew parallels between Hamas and Russia in the wars in his country and in Israel, as a reminder that the conflict in Ukraine continues despite diverting attention and potentially aid to another area of the world, something he already boasts about the Kremlin.
“These days our attention is focused on the Middle East. No one will ever be able to forget what the terrorists did in Israel,” said the president, of Jewish origin, during a telematic speech at the annual session of the NATO Assembly held in Copenhagen.
“And the Israelis themselves, the Israeli journalists who were here in Ukraine, who were in Bucha, now say that they saw the same evil as that caused there by Russia,” Zelensky said.
The Ukrainian president maintained that the only difference is that In the case of Israel it attacked “a terrorist organization”, in reference to the Islamist movement Hamas, while in the case of Ukraine it attacked “a terrorist State”.
“The declared intentions are different, but the essence is the same. One sees the same blood in the streets, the same civilian cars shot at, the same bodies of tortured people,” he stressed.
