Ukrainian President Zelensky dismissed two members of the National Security Council, both generals, on Thursday night. “I don’t have time for traitors,” said Zelensky, “but in due time they will all be punished.”
These are high-ranking members of the National Security Council: the head of the Internal Security Service and the head of that service in the Kherson region, a city in southern Ukraine controlled by Russia. “I don’t have time to deal with all the traitors, but with time they will all be punished,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a video message. “These two men have betrayed their oath to defend Ukraine.” BBC talks about “a rare glimpse into the internal division” in Ukraine.
Zelensky also uses very strong language in the letter. “The Russians are so evil and so eager to destroy that they come from another world,” the Ukrainian president said. “They are monsters that burn and loot, attack and want to kill. The fight will continue. We still have a very difficult road to go down to get everything we want.
“Russian forces are moving away from the areas where we are defeating them, and are focusing on other key areas where that may be difficult for us,” the president said. He says he fears “powerful attacks” on Mariupol, Kharkov and Kherson, among others. Earlier today, Russia promised to establish a humanitarian corridor in Mariupol, but then reports came from the mayor of the port city that Russian forces were not allowing aid through. However, this has not been independently confirmed. According to Zelensky, the situation in the south of the country and in the eastern Donbass region remains “extremely difficult”.
