Zelensky: Between Ukraine and Russia

Ukraine and Russia have a common border, but there is a huge gap between us.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said this talking with students of Canadian universities, Ukrinform reports.

“Ukraine and Canada are separated by an ocean and 7,000 kilometers, but there is a complete understanding between us. Ukraine and Russia share a common border, but there is a huge gap between us. In words, deeds, and most importantly – in values. In 2019, I spoke about my dream country. About a country where the highest value is a person. In 2022, we are fighting against the aggressor, where the highest value is weapons,” Zelensky said.

He noted that he considered the large-scale digitalization of Ukraine to be his goal, so we have become a “country in a smartphone.” While the goal of Russia is a large-scale occupation of Ukraine.

“And we became a country in berets. A country in tanks, planes and ships. A country in the trenches and bomb shelters. Our way of life has changed, but not our worldview. The way we are moving towards the goal has changed, but the goal has not changed,” the President emphasized.

He added that teachers from Ukrainian universities sometimes give lectures to students from the trench, online, on Skype, and teachers record video lessons and assignments for schoolchildren in the subway during an air raid. Our military, without leaving positions on the front line, can marry in Zoom.

Three years ago, our goal was real decentralization. Three years later, Russia’s goal was the obscure “denazification.” Three years ago we talked about powerful local government. Three years later, we are talking about powerful territorial defense. It was a different time, but our goals have not changed. The only amendment is that in order to put all this into practice, today we are fighting against the second army of the world. We are fighting for our future, our freedom and our land. Just like 80 years ago, during World War II,” Zelensky summed up.
