“Russia has stolen our peace" Zelenskyy tells Glastonbury festival crowd
CA, 25 Jun 2022
"Russia has stolen our peace," Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy told the crowds at Glastonbury, the world's largest green field festival, on Friday.
"We, in Ukraine, would also like to live the lives we used to and enjoy freedom and this wonderful summer. But we cannot do that because the most terrible (thing) has happened. Russia has stolen our peace," Zelenskyy appealed via videolink to the audience, urging them to spread the truth about Russia's invasion.
Zelenskyy, who has built a close working relationship with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, has routinely appeared via video link before national parliaments and global bodies to implore countries to help Ukraine in the war, which Russia calls a "special military operation".
He also made a video address before the Eurovision Song Contest.
Glastonbury has returned for its 50th anniversary two years later than planned after the pandemic scuppered the 2020 and 2021 events.
