Zelenski promises parade in Kiev after victory over Russia

In reaction to the Victory Parade in Moscow, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenski released a video in which he objected to Russia’s appropriation of the victory over Nazi Germany in World War II. He stressed that Ukrainians also won in 1945. – and now they will also achieve victory.

“On the day of victory over Nazism we fight for a new victory”

“Today we celebrate Victory over Nazism Day,” Zelenski said in a statement Monday. “We are proud of our ancestors, who together with other nations in the anti-Hitler coalition defeated Nazism.”

Just as then the Red Army liberated Donetsk, Luhansk, Mariupol, Kherson, Melitopol, Berdyansk and the entire Crimean Peninsula, today the occupiers will be driven out, Zelenski said.

“On the day of victory over Nazism we are fighting for a new victory,” he stressed. It is a fight for freedom and independence of Ukraine.

“Soon there will be two Victory Days in Ukraine, and someone will not even have one”

Russia also celebrated the anniversary of the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany on Monday. 11,000 soldiers marched through Red Square in Moscow. Vladimir Putin, delivering his speech, justified the attack on Ukraine on the need to defend the country. The Kremlin wants the country to be “demilitarized” and “denazified.”

Zelenski addressed this directly in his Monday speech: “Our enemy dreams that we give up celebrating May 9 and the victory over the Nazis so that the word ‘denazification’ has a chance to exist.” But “millions of Ukrainians” fought the Nazis and “drove them out” of cities now besieged by Russian troops, occupied or annexed by Moscow.

Moscow will end up like Hitler’s regime, copied by the Kremlin,” he said. “Soon there will be two Victory Days in Ukraine, and someone will not even have one,” Zelenski continued. The Victory Parade will be held on Kiev’s main avenue, Khreshchatyk, the Ukrainian president added.
