“Gangster” Vladimir Putin is intimidating Ukraine and Europeans with their actions at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky gave a grim warning on Monday, speaking via video link at the conference “Shelf of the Northern Seas” in Norway, that “Russia is the only terrorist in the world who has managed to turn a nuclear power plant into a battlefield.”
Zelensky accused Putin of having a “gangster logic” as he is hell bent on intimidating Ukrainians and Europeans through nuclear and radioactive fear.
President Zelensky said, “The goal is the same – to intimidate Ukrainians, to intimidate Europeans, the whole world.

“Intimidate and coerce. In order for Russian propagandists and officials to be able to say that allegedly it is not Russia’s fault, but someone else has created another crisis and supposedly someone else needs to be influenced.
“We need to negotiate with the Kremlin for this.
“Think about it: Russia is the only terrorist in the world who has managed to turn a nuclear power plant into a battlefield.”
He added, “And who consistently is doing everything for Europe to think where the wind can carry this radiation?”
According to President Zelensky, “the Russian leadership has a kind of gangster logic – they create problems, hoping that the victims of these problems will come and try to agree on their solution.
“And the bandit will get something for it.”
“Russia wants to force you to abandon European values,” he added.
