Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s Speech at the Romanian Parliament

President of Ukraine, in a video address to politicians and people from Romania

The whole world seems to have heard and got to know the president of Ukraine. Volodymyr Zelenskyy speaks every week to various peoples of the world and thanks for their help. In early April, the president addressed all Romanians. The performance was harsh and darkened. But Zelenskyy immediately warned his listeners about it and named the reason.

"A few hours ago, I returned from the liberated cities of the Kyiv region near our capital. It was from the territories where we drove out the Russian invaders and saw what they were doing on our soil with the Ukrainians. And I want you to see it now. What the occupiers left behind. I'm sorry, the video is tough, but this is reality. The name of our city Bucha is now forever in world history. In the history of war crimes. In the history of extermination of people. To date, more than three hundred civilians have been tortured, shot, or otherwise killed in Bucha. Ordinary residents of an ordinary city near Kyiv. Their hands were tied behind their back, shot in the back of the head or the eyes, killed right in the streets. Civilian machines were crushed with military equipment. With people! Women and girls were raped," said Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The president also said that every crime will be investigated, and forensic medical examination will be carried out. But now Ukrainian military goes around houses and basements. There are found more bodies than are already named.

The emotional performance was also matched by gratitude. Zelenskyy thanked the government and people of Romania for the political support and the reception of refugees from Ukraine and called for the introduction of as many sanctions as possible to stop the genocide of the nation.
