I know EXACTLY how world can crush evil monster Putin & free Ukraine


VIKTOR Yushchenko, who was the president of Ukraine from 2005 to 2010, has revealed exactly how, he believes, the world can crush Vladimir Putin.

Yushchenko has said that Putin has changed since he last ‘dealt’ with him during his Presidential reign.

Writing in the Guardian, he said: “The Putin I dealt with then no longer exists. He has since become a completely isolated and brutal despot who cannot stand any opposition.”

The former Ukrainian President has said that ‘international solidarity’ is now one of the ‘greatest weapons’ we have against Putin.

Yushchenko added: “One of the greatest weapons we now have against Putin is international solidarity and support. 

“This is something that really bothers him.”

He also said that they cannot win the war ‘without external support’ and that this is now a battle not just between Russia and Ukraine but against ‘tyranny and imperialism’.

He added: “I strongly believe that victory for Ukraine is inevitable. When ordinary Ukrainians give everything up to fight for their freedom and dignity, victory is the only option.”

  • Zelemsky calls for meeting with Putin

    “I think that whoever started this war will be able to end it,” he told a news conference at a metro station in the heart of the Ukrainian capital.

    He was “not afraid to meet” Putin if it would lead to a peace deal between Russia and Ukraine, he added.

    “From the beginning, I have insisted on talks with the Russian president,” said Zelensky. It’s not that I want (to meet him), it’s that I have to meet him so as to settle this conflict by diplomatic means. We have confidence in our partners, but we have no confidence in Russia,” he added.

    VLADIMIR Putin is not interested in diplomatic efforts to end the Ukraine war and wants to gain as much territory as possible, a new report claims.

    Three people briefed on conversations with the Russian president told the Financial Times that Putin was seriously considering a peace deal with Ukraine last month.

    One person briefed on the talks told the publication: “Putin sincerely believes in the nonsense he hears on [Russian] television and he wants to win big.”

    His approach to the talks became harder after the sinking of Russian warship Moskva.

    Another source added: “Putin was against signing anything… after the Moskva he doesn’t look like a winner, because it was humiliating.”
