In the address, President Zelenskyy added that, “As of now, over 3,000 people have already been evacuated in Kherson and Mykolaiv regions. But again, it is only a free territory under our control. In the occupied region, it is just possible for helping the people in some of the areas: the terrorists of Russia are doing almost everything for making the victims of the disaster as many as possible.”
At the same time, President Zelenskyy, added that, “Russian shelling continues – even at evacuation points. Russia does not provide any real help to the people in the flooded areas – not for the sake of propaganda, but for the sake of the people. The Russian state and the Russian leadership should bear separate, fair and strict responsibility for all this.”
He further added that, “And international organizations should also operate in our areas, which we have not yet de-occupied. Every life has an importance– all of Kherson, all of the southern region. Every city and village. We will do everything possible and impossible so that help comes to all our people.”
He further thanked the troops, rescuers as well as the police personnel, who are currently operating in the Kherson region, adding that, “I thank each of our rescuers, military and police, local communities, and international organizations currently operating in Kherson region and Mykolaiv region, all our volunteers – each and every one who helps save people, animals, and life in general in the disaster zone. I thank the journalists, who spread the truth and tell the world the stories of people who have suffered.”
