Russia commits “genocide” in Donbas


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Thursday accused Russia of committing “genocide” in Donbass, in the eastern part of his country.

“The ongoing offensive by the occupying forces in Donbas can make the region uninhabitable,” Zelenski said during the daily taped sermon. He added that the Russian armed forces have set out to turn many cities in the region into “ashes”.

Russia is engaging in “deportations” and “mass killings of civilians” in Donbas, Zelensky continued, for whom “all this (…) is obviously a policy of genocide committed by Russia.”

The accusations leveled at Mr Zelensky reflect those of Russia, which has vindicated its invasion of Ukraine since February 24, citing the need to prevent “genocide” committed by Ukraine against its Russian-speaking population.

In April, the Ukrainian parliament passed a resolution calling the actions of the Russian army in the country “genocide” and calling on all countries of the world and international organizations to do the same. US President Joe Biden has also used the term.
