‘I will visit after we win the war’: Ukrainian President promises visit to Athens


In an interview with Ekathimerini, Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, began by welcoming the news team and making a point to visit Athens as he says he has visited Rhodes and Crete ‘many times’, but never the capital. 

Many topics were covered in the interview, although the President’s faith in his country and the success that he is certain they will see did not flail once. 

The President was asked what he tells his children or friends when they ask when the war will be over. 

“I tell them, the war will be over when we win,” he replies.

During the interview, Zelenskyy stated that the damages to Ukrainian infrastructure were estimated at $60 billion. He also made a point of detailing scenarios of Russian nuclear attacks and the use of banned weapons.

“Putin used to say that he would never attack Ukraine…and they have used banned phosphorus bombs in Mariupol, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhya and elsewhere,” Zelenskyy said. 

“In any case, trust in the Russian side’s promises and commitments is zero.” 

Before the interview ended, Zelenskyy did not forget to mention his gratitude to the Greek government a few times and thanked them for their support and aid during this time.
