In a speech broadcast on February 24, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke about his family. He said that he and his family are still in Ukraine and that they are being targeted by the Russian army. Two days ago, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the launch of an invasion of Ukraine.
I stay in the capital, my family is also in Ukraine, my children are in Ukraine. My family and I are not traitors, we are Ukrainian citizens, expressed Volodymyr Zelensky. I have no right to say where my family is precisely. According to the information we have, the enemy has designated me as target number one, my family as target number two. They want to politically harm Ukraine by destroying the head of state.
Yesterday, the Ukrainian president accused the Russian army of bombing civilian neighborhoods. This reminds us of the Nazi offensive of 1941, he said, referring to at least 137 dead and 316 injured on the Ukrainian side. We are all here to defend Ukraine, he added at the end of the day in a video shot in front of the presidential building in Kiev.
