President of Ukraine’s address on the Day of Remembrance and Victory over Nazism in the Second World War
“Today, Ukrainians are fighting against total evil like 80 years ago,” President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in his address on the occasion of the Day of Remembrance and Victory over Nazism in the Second World War. “Unfortunately, evil has returned. Back then, evil rushed to our cities and villages, so it is doing now; back then, it killed our people, so it is doing it now. Although now it is another aggressor, the goal is the same – enslavement or destruction,” Zelenskyy said.
The President of Ukraine has submitted a bill to parliament officially making May 8 a Day of Remembrance and Victory, while May 9 – when Russia marks Victory Day – would become Europe Day. “May 9, we will commemorate our historic unity – the unity of all Europeans who destroyed Nazism and will defeat Ruscism,” Zelenskyy said.
