Zelensky on the war in Ukraine: this is not a movie

Nov 20, 2023

The war in Ukraine will not end as quickly as we would like. This is not a movie, but "daily hard work" that involves the lives of Ukrainians and the military and takes time.

This was stated by Volodymyr Zelensky during a meeting with Fox Corporation CEO Lachlan Murdoch and Fox News journalists, according to the president's website.

"For some reason, people treat this (the war - ed.) like a movie and expect that there will be no long pauses in the events, that the picture before their eyes will always change, that there will be some surprises every day," he said.

But, according to the President, for Ukrainians and Ukrainian soldiers, the war is "not a movie, it is our lives, it is daily hard work”. And it will take time to complete it.

"It will not be over as quickly as we would like, but we have no right to give up and we will not," Zelensky stated.
