In his evening speech, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy condemned the killing of a Ukrainian prisoner of war who was allegedly shot dead by Russian soldiers after he said the words "Glory to Ukraine".
The scene shown on video caused horror in Ukraine. "Today a video surfaced of the occupiers brutally killing a fighter who bravely said the words 'Glory to Ukraine'," Zelensky said.
"The occupiers are killing us for the actual fact that we are Ukrainians. For the simple word Ukraine. For our dream of a Ukraine," said Zelensky, who repeatedly describes Russia as a terrorist state. The killers would be found and punished, he said. The identity of the soldier seen on the video was still unknown late in the evening.
