Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Wednesday urged people around the world to take to the streets to protest Russia’s aggression on his country.
“Come up with a symbol of Ukraine to support Ukraine, to support freedom, to support life,” Zelensky said in a video speech in English. “Come to your squares, to your streets, make yourself visible and heard.”
In a spirited speech ahead of the one -month anniversary of the Russian invasion, Zelensky urged people around the world “to oppose the war starting from March 24 … and beyond” to speak out against Russia’s bloody war.
“Show your position, come from your office, your home, your school and your university, come in the name of peace,” Zelensky said.
Hundreds of civilians have been killed, hundreds more injured and more than three million Ukrainians have fled their country since Russia attacked its neighbor on February 24 with the goal of thwarting its pro-Western route.
