Today, all democratic states should join efforts to avoid aggression, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted after the negotiations with President of the Republic of Poland Andrzej Duda.
“Europe and the world have no right to remain silent today, as they did in the year of 1939. Europe and the world have no right to indifference and inaction. Only a tight-knit world will be able to rebuff any aggression and save humanity from new suffering,” he said.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed that today, on the day of commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi concentration camp, Ukraine, together with the world, honored the memory of the Holocaust victims and vowed to never repeat one of the most tragic pages in human history.
"As responsible democratic states, we say an eternal “no”. "No" to totalitarian ideologies, "no" to xenophobia, aggression, any manifestation of repression, hatred and intolerance," the Head of State stressed.
In addition, the President of Ukraine noted that today, on the territory of the former Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, together with President of Poland Andrzej Duda and leaders of several states, he would pray for human life as the most precious thing on the planet.
“Goodness and mercy are stronger than any geopolitical ambitions. Goodness and mercy, I am sure, will always triumph,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy summed up.
