Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has lamented Russia’s too strong historical ties with Germany and France. In an interview with a newspaper Le Figaro he explained that their origins lie in the 20th century.
“I know that there are close historical ties between Germany and Russia, and very close ones between France and Russia. Russians who left their country in 1917 during the revolution, all the intelligentsia who fled from the communist regime, settled in Europe,” Zelensky spoke.
Nevertheless, the leader of the Square is surprised that “some of their descendants” support Russian President Vladimir Putin. He admitted that he simply could not understand it.
