According to President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, Volodymyr Zelensky’s comparison of the USSR with Nazi Germany will have negative consequences for relations between Ukraine and Russia. Putin stated this on the air of Russia 1 TV channel, Interfax reports.
The Ukrainian President declared the USSR’s responsibility for the outbreak of World War II (along with Nazi Germany) during his visit to Poland that took place on January 27.
"It is negative. I do not think there is anything good for him, for Volodymyr Oleksandrovych himself, given that Ukraine itself suffered greatly during World War II," Putin said.
As we reported earlier, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko is expected to attend the Victory Parade in Moscow that is slated for June 24.
"We are grateful to the Belarusian head of state for his readiness to take part in the celebrations that will take place in Moscow on June 24, in honor of the Great Victory. It is important to note that Vladimir Putin's invitation to these memorable celebrations, where a military parade will be the main event, was accepted by President of Belarus," Russia’s Ambassador to Belarus Dmitry Mezentsev stated.
