Russia aims to remove Ukraine from history, says Zelensky

Russia’s goal is to erase Ukraine, its history, and its people, President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a video on Wednesday. The seventh day of Moscow’s invasion of its neighbor began with heavy shelling of Mariupol, a Black Sea port.

The news: The West tightened an economic noose around Russia, and Moscow switched to strikes on Ukrainian cities on Tuesday, appearing poised for an advance on Kyiv.

  • However, Zelensky, who was unshaven and wearing a khaki T-shirt, said the West’s response was insufficient, and he called for more international support, including backing Ukraine’s bid to join the European Union.
  •  Zelensky said, “This is not the time to be neutral.”

What’s going on: Mariupol, Ukraine’s south-eastern Azov Sea port, was constantly shelled and unable to evacuate injured people, while Kherson, on the Black Sea to the west, was completely surrounded by invading Russian forces, local authorities said on Wednesday.

What are they saying: Referring to the Tuesday’s shelling in Kyiv near Babyn Yar, the site of a World War II massacre of tens of thousands of Jews by German occupation troops and Ukrainian allies, Zelensky said, “This strike proves that for many people in Russia, our Kyiv is completely foreign.”

  • “They know nothing about Kyiv or our history. But they are all under orders to erase our history, our country, and us all.”
  • “We were all killed again by Babyn Yar. Despite the world’s repeated assurances that it will never happen again, “Zelensky stated.
  • “Don’t you see what’s going on? That is why it is critical that you, millions of Jews around the world, do not remain silent. Because Nazism is born in the shadows. Scream about the murder of civilians, and then scream about the murder of Ukrainians.”
