He decided to talk about what they say in Davos this year.
“The world was not ready for Ukrainian courage. For the courage of all our people who are not inferior to Russia and continue to defend our state,” Zelensky said.
He recalled that on February 24, many in the world did not believe that Ukraine would be able to withstand a full-scale war. Not because they were mistaken in their assessments, but because they did not begin to evaluate. “Many of them simply did not want to take Ukraine into account. There was no such habit of taking Ukraine into account. Although they have a habit of taking Russia into account,” the president said.
They talk about the allegedly historical sphere of influence of Russia, the alleged balance in relations in Europe, which is allegedly impossible without Russia, Zelensky continued.
“No matter what the Russian state does, there is someone who says: let’s take into account its interests. This year it was voiced again in Davos. Despite the thousands of Russian missiles that hit Ukraine. Despite the tens of thousands of Ukrainians killed. Despite Bucha and Mariupol…” the President noted.
In Davos, he said, “Mr. Kissinger, for example, emerges from the deep past and says that it is supposedly necessary to give Russia a piece of Ukraine so that there is supposedly no alienation of Russia from Europe.”
REFERENCE. Henry Kissinger was US National Security Advisor from 1969-1975 and US Secretary of State from 1973-1977. Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973. He was the initiator and executor of the policy of détente in relations between the United States and the Soviet Union.
“The impression is that Mr. Kissinger’s calendar is not 2022, but 1938, and he thought he was speaking to the audience not in Davos, but in what was then Munich,” Zelensky said.
He noted that in 1938, when the family of 15-year-old Kissinger was escaping from Nazi Germany, “they did not hear from him then that it was necessary to supposedly adapt to the Nazis instead of escaping or fighting them.”
The President also recalled an article in the New York Times that Ukraine “must accept the so-called hard compromises, giving up territory in exchange for peace.”
“Perhaps, the New York Times also wrote something similar in 1938, but now, I remind you, it’s still 2022,” Zelensky said.
He called for all these “geopolitical considerations” to see millions of Ukrainians living in the territory “which they propose to exchange for the illusion of peace.”
“We must do everything possible so that a persistent habit appears in the world – to take Ukraine into account. So that the interests of Ukrainians do not overlap with the interests of those rushing to the next meeting with the dictator,” Zelensky said.
