Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is out for revenge.
According to the New York Post, Zelenskyy has vowed to hunt down “every bastard” involved in the murder of a Ukrainian family in the Kyiv suburb of Irpin this weekend.
“A family was killed in [Irpin] today. A man, a woman and two children. Right on the road. … When they were just trying to get out of town. To escape,” Zelensky said, speaking in Ukrainian in a broadcast late Sunday. “The whole family. How many such families have died in Ukraine! We will not forgive. We will not forget.”
“We will punish everyone who committed atrocities in this war. On our land. We will find every bastard. Which shot at our cities, our people. Which bombed our land. Which launched rockets. Which gave the order and pressed ‘start,’” he continued
“There will be no quiet place on this Earth for you. Except for the grave.”
“The names and ages of the family have not been released, although reports said the daughter was 8 years old and her brother a teen,” the Post reports.
“About a dozen Ukrainian soldiers were nearby when the explosion went off Sunday, including one in a video who appeared to be injured in the blast. The soldiers were there not to fight but rather to assist fleeing civilians, according to reports.”
