He said it was ‘reminiscent of many battles in the past, which became turning points in the wars of the past’.
‘It’s like, for example, D-Day – the landing of the Allies in Normandy. It was not yet a final point in the fight against evil, but it already determined the entire further course of events. This is exactly what we are feeling now’, he said.
Many world leaders and attendees condemned Moscow for actions in Ukraine. And they were critical of Putin for not facing the summit in person. Rishi Sunak claimed that ‘Maybe if he had, we could get on with sorting things out.’

The aerial assault knocked out much of Ukraine’s electricity. The power grid was previously damaged by constant attacks that destroyed about 40% of the energy infrastructure.
Zelensky claims that 10 million Ukrainians are currently without power. But he remains defiant. And declared that “We will survive everything.”
“We need to put the terrorist in its place. The longer Russia feels impunity, the more threats there will be for everyone within the reach of Russian missiles,” Zelensky said.
