Zelenskyy issues stern warning to Putin – 'Sooner we talk, the smaller your losses'


The Kyiv Independent posted a quote from Zelenskyy on Twitter in the early hours of Friday morning as Russian forces close in on Ukraine’s capital. This comes after the President urged Ukrainians to take up arms and mobilise themselves against Putin’s troops.

Writing to over 250 thousand followers, the Ukrainian media outlet tweeted: “Zelensky: Russia will have to talk to us sooner or later about how to end hostilities and stop this invasion.

“The sooner the conversation begins, the smaller Russia’s losses will be.”

President Zelenskyy has stood firm in the face of Russian threats, with Ukrainian forces continuing to defend their positions at four fronts despite being heavily outnumbered.

In a video address to his country early Friday morning, he said: “According to our information, the enemy has listed me as target number one, and my family as target number two.

“They want to destroy the country politically, terminating the head of state.

“They’re killing people and turning peaceful cities into military targets.

“It’s foul and will never be forgiven.”

Ukraine’s Foreign Minister tweeted that the last time Kyiv had “experienced anything like this was in 1941 when it was attacked by Nazi Germany”.

He continued: “Ukraine defeated that evil and will defeat this one.

“Stop Putin. Isolate Russia. Severe all ties. Kick Russia out of everywhere.”
