Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky has told Russians, who are protesting the ongoing war in Ukraine, that he is grateful to them.
The President said he was “grateful” to Russians who “are not afraid to protest” and who “tell the truth” about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Hundreds of Russians have been arrested by the government of President Vladimir Putin for taking to the streets to call for an end to the ongoing hostilities in Ukraine.
And in a Telegram video uploaded on Tuesday morning, Zelensky said,
“I am grateful to those Russians who do not stop trying to convey the truth.”
He hailed the Russians for resisting what he described as disinformation and had decided to stand on the side of truth and tell real facts to their friends and loved ones.
Zelensky further pointed to Maria Ovsyannikova, a Russian Television, Russia Channel One employee, who interrupted a major broadcast by holding an anti-war sign in prime time on Monday.
“NO WAR. Stop the war. Do not believe propaganda, they tell you lies here,”
