Zelensky tells German MPs ‘never again’ Holocaust slogan is now meaningless
Ukrainian president addresses Bundestag via video, says Europe being destroyed, urges tearing down a new 'wall' that Russia is building between 'freedom and bondage'
“Every year politicians repeat ‘never again,'” the Ukrainian leader said, referring to annual Holocaust commemorations.
“And now, we see that these words simply mean nothing. A people is being destroyed in Europe,” he said, noting that 108 children had been killed in his country since the start of the Russian offensive.
In his emotional video address before the parliament, Zelensky called on Germany to help destroy a new “wall” Russia was erecting in Europe.
“It’s not a Berlin Wall — it is a wall in central Europe between freedom and bondage and this wall is growing bigger with every bomb” dropped on Ukraine, Zelensky told MPs.
Alright, this guy is good! Really Good!
Zelensky is the right guy for the job, the man of the hour, without a doubt. Besides his fearless courage, his command of history, understanding, and rhetoric, is excellent. In this new information age, he is winning the PR War with Putin without a doubt - no contest! And that just may be the critical component that allows him & his countrymen to win the shooting war!
Think of how evocative the statements, in my two excerpts above, are to the German government & German People!
"A new Berlin Wall"?
I can't imagine more evocation & poignancy in a plea for German assistance and arms!
Mr. Zelensky is one talented & character laden individual.
A man for the hour, a man for all seasons.
I've become a fan!
