According to reports, a freshly released documentary titled “Year” features Zelensky, where he makes a big claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin will be killed by his inner circle. The statement comes amid ongoing Russia-Ukraine war.
The frustration and anger among Russian officials is growing. “The cry of soldiers on the battlefield, who have seen abundant destruction and human loss, wants to return home,” said Zelensky.
The fragility has grown exponentially, and soon it will be felt inside Russia, says Zelensky.”They will find a reason to murder the destroyer,” added Zelensky.
The documentary was released in celebration of the one-year anniversary of the Russia-Ukraine war.
According to political pundits, this is highly unlikely to happen because top officials hold their positions in confidence with Putin.
Zelensky asserted that the war with Russia will end with Ukraine getting back control of the Crimean Peninsula, which has been occupied by Russia since 2014.
Zelensky promised his countrymen that they would get back on their feet and reclaim territorial boundaries. He said that Ukraine is a land of Ukrainians, and every Ukrainian is proud of its culture, people, and history.
Meanwhile, Russia has yet to comment on the documentary.
The stage is set
The geopolitical situation is tense and pacing at lightning speed. All sides have something to say. US President Joe Biden attended the NATO B9 Summit in Warsaw. Biden stated that the United States will defend NATO members in all aspects, including protecting their territorial integrity and sovereignty.
Most of these NATO countries are those that were part of Soviet Russia before the Cold War and attained their freedom when the Soviet Union disintegrated. All the eastern NATO members are supporting Ukraine in its war and want to continue supplying weapons to Ukraine.
Joe Biden also paid a surprise visit to Kyiv to show his unconditional support for Ukraine. He assured Zelensky that the USA will continue supplying war weapons and will not allow Russia to occupy the country.

China warns that nuclear weapons should and must not be used in the conflict. China urged both countries to avoid attacking civilians. The top priority of both nations should be to facilitate a ceasefire and end hostilities without delay.
Ukraine has published a 10-point peace programme of its own, demanding the total withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukrainian territory and strict actions to be taken by the International Tribunal to prosecute Moscow for its aggression.
Recently, the G20 meeting that took place in Bangalore concluded without building consensus over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The world’s largest economies were unable to agree on a joint statement condemning Russia for its war on Ukraine.

India, which hosted the meeting, struggled to balance eastern and western interests. While India and other eastern economies didn’t want to raise the Russian issue, the west was adamant about releasing a joint statement condemning Russia’s deeds in Ukraine.
A similar kind of situation happened at the last G20 summit, which took place in Bali. The summit was full of awkward moments and walkouts. The summit was not attended by the Russian president, due to which any meaningful consensus could not be built.
The Indian Foreign Ministry released an outcome statement that mainly disclosed the discussions that happened in two days. FM Nirmala Sitarman went on to say that the release is not a communiqué but only an outcome statement, but at least they are happy that all ministers were onboarded and there is sight of improvement.
The situation is grim in Ukraine, which is sending shockwaves to all parts of the world. When the economies of the world were in post-pandemic recovery, the Ukraine war complicated the situation further, leading to price increases of essential items like wheat, supply chain disruptions, and skyrocketing oil prices, which pushed countries into inflation.
India has maintained a neutral stance in the Ukraine war. India is against war and the destruction and human loss that it causes. As affirmed by PM Modi, this is not the era of war, India pushes for diplomacy and dialogue to end the war. So far, India has voted against all UNGA resolutions condemning Russia.
China has also maintained a neutral stand and abstained from the resolutions against Russia. China went on to say that it has relations with Russia, which know no boundaries, and asked both sides to resolve tensions through negotiations, as conflict and war benefit no one.
