Zelenskyy Draws Parallels Between Hamas and Russia.

Trending Now

In a recent NATO Parliamentary Assembly meeting held in Copenhagen, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy drew a striking comparison between Hamas and Russia.

According to New York Times, he emphasized that both entities employ similar tactics, targeting civilians and causing widespread devastation. "Civilian cars are similarly shelled, the same bodies of tortured people," Zelenskyy noted.

Zelenskyy urged NATO to come together in combating terrorism, stating that the essence of the attacks by Hamas in Israel and Russia in Ukraine is fundamentally the same. "It's the same evil," he declared, calling for a unified stance against both.

The Ukrainian President also implicated Iran in the ongoing conflicts, pointing out that the Islamic regime has been supplying kamikaze Shahed drones to Russia.

He argued that Iran cannot distance itself from the events unfolding in Israel and, by extension, Ukraine.

Zelenskyy took the opportunity to remind everyone of the basic principles that should govern international order. These include not assaulting women, not killing, and not treating children as trophies.

"Our unity must and can stop evil. Our desire for peace, not their desire for blood, should decide how the world lives," he concluded.

Over the weekend, a sudden and massive attack was launched by Hamas on Israel, resulting in over 1500 casualties and thousands of injuries on both sides. The Palestinians have also kidnapped numerous individuals.
