Terrorist declaration for Russia: Zelenskyy

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has told Australian students that the world must not forget the 161 days that Russian troops have occupied Ukrainian territory. He said it is important to hold the Kremlin accountable for its actions again in a televised address.

“Humanity has come through 161 points of (no) return,” he told an audience at the Australian National University on Wednesday. “The world has … a choice. To recognise the Russian Federation as (a) terrorist sponsor. “You cannot hide from this choice, you cannot somehow avoid it.”

While it continues to commit atrocities across Ukraine, Russia has lost the veil it used to cover itself as a "peacekeeper."

“Those things they’ve done. I’m shocked. I never thought people are capable of those (actions),” Zelenskyy said. “We have seen horror movies but I never thought the realities in Ukraine would be more scary.

Russia cannot even hold itself accountable for its actions, while terrorists hold themselves accountable for their actions by accusing others of them," he explained.
