Zelensky said in his video address on Wednesday evening, “But still in Davos, for example, Mr. Kissinger emerges from the deep past and says that a piece of Ukraine should be given to Russia.
“So that there is no alienation of Russia from Europe,”
According to Zelensky, “it seems that Mr. Kissinger’s calendar is not 2022, but 1938, and he thought he was talking to an audience not in Davos, but in Munich of that time.
“By the way, in the real year 1938, when Mr. Kissinger’s family was fleeing Nazi Germany, he was 15-years old, and he understood everything perfectly.
“And nobody heard from him then that it was necessary to adapt to the Nazis instead of fleeing them or fighting them.
“Symptomatic editorials began to appear in some Western media stating that Ukraine must allegedly accept so-called difficult compromises by giving up territory in exchange for peace.
“Perhaps The New York Times in 1938 also wrote something similar. But now, let me remind you, it is 2022.
“And behind all these geopolitical speculations of those who advise Ukraine to give away something to Russia, ‘great geopoliticians’ are always unwilling to see ordinary people. Ordinary Ukrainians.
“Millions of those who actually live in the territory they propose to exchange for the illusion of peace.
“You must always see people. And remember that values are not just a word.”
