In an interview with CNN’s journalist Jake Tapper on “State of the Union,” Ukraine president Zelensky was asked: “The Russian ship Moskva, the Ukrainian soldier, told him: ‘Fxxk you! ‘the one that was sunk. The Russians say the Russians are liars, but the Russians say it sank on its own. Can you provide some clarification and evidence about what happened on that ship?”
Zelensky replied: “We know that the Moskva is sunk. For us, it is a serious weapon against our country. That’s why the fact that it sank is not a tragedy for us. I want you and everyone else to know that. The less weapons the Russian Federation has attacking our country, the better it is for us and the more weakened they are. That’s all. That’s the most important thing. So what happened to the ship? Time will tell.”
“A new Russian offensive in eastern [Ukraine], in Donbas, could start at any time. Your government officials warn that it could look like World War II on a massive scale. You won the battle of Kiev. Will you win the battle for Donbass?”
“For us, the battle in Donbass is very important,” zelensky replied. It’s important for different reasons, for safety reasons. First of all, our troops in Donbas are among the best we have. This is a large force. And Russia wants to surround them and destroy them. The army has nearly 40,000 men. These are 44,000 professional [Ukrainian] soldiers who survived a major war that broke out in early 2014.”
Zelensky added, “That’s why it’s so important for us to preserve the strongest part of our military. That’s why it’s very important that we don’t allow them to take our land, because this battle it could happen, so there will be several battles and we don’t know how long it will take. It can affect the course of the war because I don’t trust the Russian military and the Russian leadership. That’s why we understand, we pushed back the Russian forces, they left, they fled from the north, from Chernikov, from Kiev in that direction. [But] that does not mean that if Russian forces were able to take Donbas, they would not move further towards Kiev. That’s why, for us, this fight is very important, for many reasons. It is very important to win this battle.”
“The director of the CIA has warned that he fears Putin could use tactical nuclear weapons in this fight. Are you worried?”
“It’s not just me,” Zelensky says. I think all over the world, all countries have to be concerned because you know it may not be true information, but it may be true, true, because when they start talking about this or that kind of fighting or involving the enemy or nuclear weapons or chemical weapons, some chemical weapons, they can do that. I mean, they have that capability. People’s lives mean nothing to them. That’s why we should think, not be afraid, I mean, not be afraid, be prepared. But this is not a Ukrainian problem, it’s not just a Ukrainian problem, it’s a problem for all [countries], it’s a problem for the whole world. I think so.”
泽连斯基回答说:“我们知道,‘莫斯科号’已经沉没了。对我们来说,它是反对我们国家的一个严重武器。这就是为什么它沉没的事实对我们来说不是一个悲剧。我希望你和其他所有人都知道这一点。攻击我国的俄罗斯联邦拥有的武器越少,对我们来说就越好,他们越被削弱。这就是全部,也是最重要的事情。那么这艘船发生了什么?时间会告诉我们。”
记者问:“俄罗斯在(乌克兰)东部、在顿巴斯的新攻势可能随时开始。你的政府官员警告说,它可能看起来像第二次世界大战一样的大规模。你赢得了基辅之战。你会赢得顿巴斯的战斗吗?”
泽连斯基回答说:“对我们来说,顿巴斯的战斗是非常重要的。它的重要性在于不同的原因,在于安全的原因。首先,我们位于顿巴斯的部队是我们拥有的最好的军队之一。这是一个大规模部队。而俄罗斯想包围他们并摧毁他们。这个部队有近40000人。这是44000名(乌克兰)职业军人,他们从2014年年初爆发的一场大规模战争中幸存下来。”
泽连斯基补充说:“这就是为什么对我们来说,保存我们军队中最强大的那一部分是非常重要的。这就是为什么我们不允许他们夺取我们的土地是非常重要的,因为这场战斗它可能发生,所以会有几场战斗,我们不知道它要花多长时间。它可以影响整个战争的进程,因为我不相信俄罗斯军队和俄罗斯的领导层。这就是为什么我们理解,我们击退了俄军,他们离开了,他们从北部,从切尔尼戈夫,从那个方向逃离基辅。(但)这并不意味着,如果俄军能够占领顿巴斯,他们不会进一步向基辅进军。这就是为什么,对我们来说,这场战斗是非常重要的,有很多原因。赢得这场战斗是非常重要的。”
记者说:“美国中情局局长警告说,他担心普京可能在这场战斗中使用战术性核武器。你是否(对此)感到担心?”
泽连斯基表示:“不仅仅是我。我认为,在全世界,所有的国家都必须担心,因为你知道它可能不是真实的信息,但它可能是真相,真实的,因为当他们开始谈论这样或那样的战斗或涉及敌人或核武器或化学,一些化学武器,他们可以这样做。我是说,(俄军)他们拥有这样的能力。对他们来说,人民的生命什么都不算。这就是为什么我们应该思考,不要害怕,我是说,不要害怕,要做好准备。但这不是乌克兰的问题,不仅是乌克兰的问题,也是所有(国家)的问题,是全世界的问题。我是这么认为的。”
