Former Ukrainian political prisoner Oleg Sentsov commented on the dispute between President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and the far-right in Donbas, saying he was ashamed of the President. He wrote about it on his Facebook.
"I reviewed the yesterday comic video in a series #imnotloser. As a result: shame on the President and proud of the military. I am not writing about other servicemen as I think I have no moral rights for this, as I have never been to war. I only want to thank them for having our country so far," Sentsov wrote.
As we reported, the video where Zelensky communicates with far-right National Corps representatives in Zolote settlement has appeared in the social media.
The soldier's voice is heard on the video who said to Zelensky: "We are hospitable, let's sit down and talk." During the conversation the President noted that people long for troops' withdrawal and we should do everything necessary to end the war.
"People want withdrawal. I understand what you are talking about: you do not want to make serious mistakes and have losses and so on. But I think we all should do something to end the war. But here, nevertheless, our militaries are in charge. And with all due respect, they are dealing with the security situation. I trust our soldiers. You served as well and respect the army. But now they are on the front line," Zelensky said.
Then one volunteer serviceman mentioned that Ukraine effectively agrees for the truce with terroristic organizations of the temporarily occupied territories. Zelensky replied he did not care with whom the document would be signed, we needed to give the territories back and stop murders.
On another video, it is heard that the argument happened between the President of the country and the same volunteer military.
The serviceman asked Zelensky whether he would meet with veterans relating to the "No capitulation" action, which took place on the whole territory of Ukraine.
"People demanded the meeting," the soldier said.
Volodymyr Zelensky told him: "I am the President of this country and I am 42 years old. I am not a loser. I came to you and asked to put the gun down. I wanted to see in your eyes understanding but I saw a guy who decided he was speaking to a loser and told about another topic."
