Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is known as one of the biggest critics of Vladimir Putin and the system established by the Russian leader. An authoritarian regime in which one person has been in charge for years is not what Zelenskyy respects and accepts. Of course, we all know the main reason why the Ukrainian president has no sympathy for Putin. 

To say that there is no sympathy for him is an understatement. Zelenskyy and Putin have been at war for a long time. What surprised many was the Ukrainian leader's recent statement in an interview with the Italian TV channel Rai 1. When asked by a reporter how many times Putin tried to kill him, Zelenskyy had an interesting answer;

They say more than ten. Special services, intelligence say so, but I, frankly, do not count this number,” -Volodymyr Zelenskyy said, as quoted by charter97!

Volodymyr Zelenskyy: I should be in the same conditions as every Ukrainian

The Ukrainian president showed strong character and courage by saying that such things do not surprise him and that his soldiers have many problems at the front. Zelenskyy is known as a leader who provides enormous moral support to his soldiers from day one. He pointed out that it is imperative for him to win the war, but with as few losses as possible. The loss of each soldier is actually a defeat for him and his country.

“It seems to me that in Ukraine all our people, the military at the front, risk their lives every day, and the civilians who are attacked, as in Odesa, also risk their lives. And I am the president of my country, so I also take risks. I should be in the same conditions as every Ukrainian,” Zelenskyy said.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy hopes that Vladimir Putin's regime will come to an end, and that better prosperity awaits both Ukraine and Russia. The Ukrainian president is ready to negotiate with Putin, but the previous negotiations did not turn out to be a very good idea.
