Zelenskyy about Putin: “He will die”

In an interview with the Brazilian television channel GloboNews, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke about Russian President Vladimir Putin, the war in Syria and possible future scenarios. This is reported by the media project NEXTA.

According to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s assessment, Putin will not be able to wage another 10 years of war against Ukraine. Asked whether Ukraine will face the same fate as Syria, where Russia has been waging a “proxy war” for almost 30 years, Zelenskyy replied in the negative. “Putin will not live that many more years. At the rate he is fighting us, he did not fight in Syria (…). He will not survive. He will be gone in 30 years, he will die – that is absolutely clear. But he won’t survive 10 years either. He is not the same person anymore,” Selenskyj said.

Back in December, Zelenskyy had said that the war would end with Putin’s death. “The authoritarian regime is terrible. It is a big risk – not everyone can rely on one person (…). I think when Putin is gone, it will be difficult for them.”
