Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky warned Russians that “no one” would ever forgive the country for attacking it with missiles on New Year’s Eve in an address Saturday.

Zelensky said the Russian people were hiding behind President Vladimir Putin and that the world would never forgive them for supporting a man whose only mission was to stay in power for the rest of his life.

“All this war that you are waging, you are Russia, it is not the war with NATO, as your propagandists lie,” Zelensky said. “It’s for one person to remain in power until the end of his life. … He hides behind you and burns your country and your future. No one will ever forgive you for terror. No one in the world will forgive you for this. Ukraine will never forgive.”

Zelensky further slammed Russia for its similar attacks on Christmas and Easter, saying that citizens could not be “Christians” if they followed the “devil.”

“They call themselves Christians. They are very proud of their orthodoxy. But they are following the devil. They support him and are together with him,” he said.

Ukraine’s air defense intercepted many of the New Year’s Eve missiles, but the bombardments nevertheless caused damage and casualties, according to Zelensky, albeit to a smaller degree. Ukraine’s president added that his administration would provide assistance to those affected.

The attack comes 10 months after Putin ordered his troops to invade Ukraine, which has been met with resilience from the smaller country. Many European leaders and the United States have united around Ukraine, spending billions of dollars in military support.
