Volodymyr ZelenskyyThe Jewish President of Ukraine again mutilated By Vladimir Putin trying to rewrite history and justify his war is an attempt to “pilot” Ukraine. Speaking in a video speech on Monday, given while walking through the fortified streets of Kyiv, Zelenskyy described the Russian President as a “madman” who is “repeating crimes” terrible evil of today’s Hitler regime,” in a video speech on Monday, played while walking in Kyiv’s street fortifications. “On Victory Day against Nazism, we are fighting for a new victory,” said Zelenskyy. “The road to it is difficult, but we are sure that we will win.”

Zelenskyy went on to mention Putin, “He had to die because he was cursed by millions of ancestors when he started imitating their killers. And so he will lose everything. And very soon, there will be two Victory Days in Ukraine”.

The remark came shortly before Putin’s own speech, and undermined the propaganda the Russian dictator used as an excuse for the backlash, which observers fear he could soon strengthen. “This is not going well,” like Kurt Volker, a former US ambassador representing the Ukraine negotiations and a fellow at the Center for European Policy Analysis, told NBC News ahead of a holiday commemorating the defeat of Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany. “So he’s been wanting to try putting a gloss on it and say, you know, this makes sense and it’s working.”

Putin did not announce the escalation of the war on Monday, but he again tried to rationalize it as the “necessary, timely and only solution”. “The danger is increasing every day,” Putin declared in his speech. “Russia has repelled this act of aggression in a preventive manner.”

This Victory Day proved a major stage for smaller-scale uprisings against disinformation and broader war: In Russia, there were anti-war protests that resulted in at least three arrests, as well as the hack of Russian television stations to broadcast anti-war messages. “The blood of thousands of Ukrainians and hundreds of murdered children lies on your hands,” a statement read. “TV and the authorities are lying. Don’t let war happen.”

Meanwhile, at the European Victory Day event centered in Poland, which attracts a lot of Ukrainian refugees, protesters showered the Russian ambassador Sergey Andreev painted red when they stopped him from placing flowers at a Soviet cemetery in Warsaw. Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau called the incident “regrettable”, but the country’s interior minister, Mariusz Kaminskiwrote that the protest against the “genocide regime” was “legal” and “understandable”.

As officials in the US and the West prepare for further escalation from Putin, the First Lady Jill Biden made an unannounced visit to the southwest of Ukraine, to meet her Ukrainian counterpart, Olena Zelenskawho has gone into hiding and has not appeared in public since the invasion began in February.

“We think it’s important to show the Ukrainian people that this war has to stop, and this war has been brutal,” Biden said. “And the people of the United States stand with the people of Ukraine.”

“We feel it,” Zelenska said.
