Russia’s war against Ukraine can end if Russians realize and admit their responsibility for it, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said at the Ambrosetti Forum on Sept. 2.

According to Zelenskyy, the repentance of Russian citizens is one of the most important factors necessary to resolve the conflict.

“They must feel that they’re guilty of this war, guilty of their choice, they’re guilty of being silent,” he said.

“The Russians must understand that this war is terrible, brutal and has no other alternative but for Russian troops to leave foreign land.”

In addition, Zelenskyy stated the need for greater consolidation of the world community against the Kremlin regime.

“The West imposes sanctions (against Russia),… but it shouldn’t be that countries vote to impose sanctions only for individual companies find workarounds to bypass them.”
