Zelenskyy on 60 Minutes: “This is not a movie. This is real life. We’ve shown we are not afraid.”

From a story on politico.com by David Cohen headlined “Zelendskyy: This is not a movie. This is real life.”

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine says the world must stop being fearful of what Russia might do and step up to help his country defeat its invader.

“This is not a movie. This is real life,” he said through an interpreter in an interview with Scott Pelley that aired Sunday on CBS’ “60 Minutes.” “Stop fearing the Russian Federation. We’ve shown we are not afraid.”

Zelenskyy explained that he thought the most basic of human rights was at stake in standing up to President Vladimir Putin’s invading forces.
