There can be no doubt that if there are two people on this planet who are not exchanging gifts for Christmas, it is Russia's President, Vladimir Putin, and Ukraine's President, Volodymyr Zelensky.

For a long time, the relationship between the two leaders has been non-existent, culminating on February 24, 2022, when Russia actively invaded Ukraine, sparking the war that has now been ongoing for more than two years.

Whenever the opportunity arises, the two leaders attack each other and their respective countries, and when Moscow was hit by a terrible terrorist attack on Friday evening, it was no different.

It did not take many hours before the first accusations from Russia came against the West and Ukraine, and when Putin first spoke to the population after the attack, it was with jabs and strong insinuations that Ukraine was behind it. This was despite ISIS already having claimed responsibility.

Yesterday, the Russian president then admitted that it was a 'radical Islamist' group behind the attack, yet he insinuated that Ukraine might have 'ordered' it.

Not many hours after that statement, Zelensky delivered a speech to his people, where he strongly lashed out at Putin again.

"Today Putin spoke to himself again and it was broadcast on TV again. He blames Ukraine again. He is a sick and cynical creature. Everyone is a terrorist except him, although he has been feeding on terror for two decades," said Volodymyr Zelensky in a speech published on the night from Monday to Tuesday, before he continued:

"He is the biggest window to terror. He and his special services. And when he goes away, the demand for terror and violence will go with him, because it is his demand. And no one else."

Volodymyr Zelensky has previously taken a firm stance against the idea that Ukraine would be involved in the attack in Moscow.
