March 13, 2022
(Mayor of Kyiv Vitali Klitschko addressed the Russian people in a YouTube video posted on March 11, 2022. Highlights and minor additions follow below.)
I’ll tell you in Russian that your unprovoked attack on my country is barbarism based on absolute propaganda and nonsense. You’re arrogant to tell us we’re not a nation and spread myths about Nazis here and that we need to be liberated. We don’t need to be liberated except from you. We’re on our land, the land of a free and democratic people. We’re united in our resolve to fight you. You’re killing our children and bombing and razing our cities because of the propaganda of a mad dictator. If you continue, you’ll end up in complete isolation that will destroy your country. The world is against you. We will never give up our freedom-loving and heroic nation.
