Ukraine’s Zelenskiy calls Russian leaders ‘bandits’, rules out frozen conflict

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy criticized Russia’s political and military leaders, referring to them as bandits, and emphasized that he would not accept a peace plan that would result in a frozen conflict in Ukraine. He made these remarks during a speech to parliament on Ukraine’s Constitution Day, following Russian President Vladimir Putin’s praise for his troops’ handling of a mutiny led by Wagner Group chief Yevgeny Prigozhin.

Zelenskiy declared that Ukraine was on the path to victory and insisted that Russia’s leaders should not evade justice for their war on his country. He expressed this sentiment to the parliament, stating that the political and military leadership of Russia should not be immune from accountability, as they are not legitimate state leaders but rather bandits who have taken control of Russia’s institutions and are terrorizing the world. Zelenskiy even described the Russian president as being afflicted by “madness.”

Furthermore, Zelenskiy made it clear that he opposes any peace plan that would freeze the territorial gains made by Russia during its invasion of Ukraine. He stated that Ukraine would not agree to any variants of a frozen conflict. Instead, Zelenskiy presented a 10-point peace “formula” that includes restoring Ukraine’s territorial integrity, the withdrawal of Russian troops, and the reinstatement of Ukraine’s state borders. He emphasized that the basis for any proposal to end the war should be a return to Ukraine’s 1991 borders, which were established after its independence from the Soviet Union.

Despite launching a counteroffensive to retake occupied territory, Ukrainian forces have been unable to regain control over the eastern and southern regions, which are still held by Russian forces. In his speech, Zelenskiy called for a nationwide discussion on a future doctrine for Ukraine, aiming to address fundamental questions about the country and provide a shared vision of victory.

In conclusion, President Zelenskiy firmly expressed his stance against Russia’s actions and called for justice, while rejecting any peace plan that would leave Ukraine in a frozen conflict. He outlined his 10-point peace formula and emphasized the importance of restoring Ukraine’s territorial integrity based on its 1991 borders. Zelenskiy also called for a national discussion to shape Ukraine’s future doctrine and define what victory means for the country.
