“If you have Russian citizenship and you are silent — it means that you are not fighting, it means that you are supporting it”
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy has warned those with Russian citizenship against being complicit and silent in supporting Putin’s war on Ukraine.
“People’s silence approaches the level of complicity. And the rejection of the real fight against evil becomes the assistance to it. Therefore, if you have Russian citizenship and you are silent — it means that you are not fighting, it means that you are supporting it,” he said in his latest national address.
“We are working on new sanctions against Russia and on stimulating the citizens of the terrorist state to feel their share of responsibility for what is happening. The discussion about visa restrictions in Europe for holders of Russian passports is expanding every day, and new states and new politicians are joining it. Ultimately, this should lead to appropriate decisions,” Zelenskyy said.
