Latest In Ukraine: At Close Of G7, Zelenskyy Likens Bakhmut Obliteration To Hiroshima

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said at the close of the G-7 Summit in Hiroshima, Japan, that the obliteration of the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut by Russian forces harkens back to the Hiroshima bombing at the end of WWII.

“Hiroshima is a rebuilt city now. And we dream of rebuilding all of our cities that are now in ruins, and every village where not a single house is left intact after Russian strikes,” Zelenskyy said Sunday.

The Ukrainian leader delivered the warning that if the world does not unite against the Russian aggressor, it will be “a matter of time before other criminals in public office want to start similar wars,” adding, “I am here in Hiroshima so that the world can hear the Ukrainian call for unification from here.”

Zelenskyy contested Russia’s claims Sunday that it had occupied Bakhmut.
