'Kill every b*****d': Zelenskyy vows to hunt down Russian soldiers who killed civilians
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has vowed to "kill every b*****d" who is targetting innocent families trying to flee the country's borders
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy issued an ominous warning to Russian soldiers who are indiscriminately killing civilians in the war-ravaged areas of the country. He vowed to "kill every b*****d" who is targetting the innocent families trying to flee the Ukrainian borders. His warning came after shocking photos showed a family of four in Irpin lying dead on the road after Russian troops gunned them down. Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin's forces continue to bomb residential areas around the country and rain gunfire on the citizens.
In a televised speech, a furious Zelenskyy noted, "A man, a woman, and two children. Right on the road. … when they were just trying to get out of town. To escape. The whole family. How many such families have died in Ukraine! We will not forgive. We will not forget."
He further added, "We will punish everyone who committed atrocities in this war. On our land. We will find every b*****d. Which shot at our cities, our people. Which bombed our land. Which launched rockets. Which gave the order and pressed 'start'. There will be no quiet place on this Earth for you. Except for the grave."
The atrocities by Russian forces are being widely criticized as harrowing photos and videos emerged online, showing the death and destruction of Ukraine's invasion. Recently, the photo of a couple crying over their infant son's dead body in Mariupol startled the world. The 18-month-old boy was reportedly killed when Russians started shelling over the southern city. The shelling happened barely minutes after Kyiv and Moscow agreed to a ceasefire.
Another heartbreaking video showed a son begging his father "Don't die" as Russian troops continued to fire rounds of bullets at the man. The father-son duo was trying to flee their city with their three pet dogs, two of whom were killed in the gunfire along with the father.
Meanwhile, a defiant Zelenskyy challenged Putin as he openly revealed his location on-air, days after he evaded as many as three assassination attempts. Speaking to a US news channel, Zelenskyy said that he had emerged from his bunker in Kyiv and returned to the presidential palace. "I am here, I am not hiding, and I am not afraid of anyone," he stated.
"We are all in our places working, where we should be. My team is in Kyiv with me. We are all fighting, we are all contributing to our victory which will surely happen," he said.
He also warned the US that Putin's aggression will not stop with Ukraine as he will continue to invade Poland, Lithuania, and other European countries. "We will come first. You will come second. Because the more this beast will eat, he wants more, more, and more," Zelenskyy said, adding, "And when the limits of rights and freedoms are being violated and stepped on, then you have to protect us."
"Today, war is here. Tomorrow, it will be in Lithuania, then in Poland, then in Germany. This is serious. United States is far away, but in recent days, I do feel that the United States are closer to us," he also shared.
