President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is promising to hunt down everyone involved in the murder of a Ukrainian family fleeing a Kyiv suburb this weekend; “There will be no quiet place on this Earth for you. Except for the grave,” the president says.
“A family was killed in [Irpin] today. A man, a woman and two children. Right on the road. … When they were just trying to get out of town. To escape,” Zelensky said, speaking in Ukrainian in a broadcast late Sunday. “The whole family. How many such families have died in Ukraine! We will not forgive. We will not forget.”
“We will punish everyone who committed atrocities in this war. On our land. We will find every bastard. Which shot at our cities, our people. Which bombed our land. Which launched rockets. Which gave the order and pressed ‘start,’” he continued.
“There will be no quiet place on this Earth for you. Except for the grave.”
“A wrenching snapshot of the tragic family’s bodies in the aftermath of a Sunday attack on Irpin captured the world’s attention. A man also seen in the photo lying on the pavement was later identified as a family member who died, too,” the New York Post reports.
According to the Post, “the names and ages of the family have not been released, although reports said the daughter was 8 years old and her brother a teen.”
