“I hope this will help our colleagues at the UN to better understand who we are really dealing with in Ukraine,” the diplomat added.

“We will have a job – they will have [в непризнанных на тот момент ДНР и ЛНР] no. We will have pensions – they don’t. We will take care of pensioners, children – they do not. Our children will go to schools and kindergartens – their children will sit in basements. They don’t know how to do anything. This is how we will win this war.”
The document also contains the statements of the current President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky from November 2021:
“And you call people [о людях, которые подверглись санкциям СНБО]? There are different. There are representatives of people – people. Not all human representatives are human. There are individuals, I think so, ”the Russian side quotes Zelensky as of November 2021.
The 11-page document contains quotes from many other Ukrainian officials, including the former speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Andrey Parubiy mentioning Adolf Hitler.
“I myself am a huge supporter of direct democracy. By the way, I will tell you that the biggest person who practiced direct democracy was Adolf Aloizovich [Гитлер] in the 1930s,” Parubiy was quoted by the Russian Permanent Mission as saying in 2018, when he was still head of parliament.
