After the capitulation of Kyiv, the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky should be arrested and put on trial or liquidated as a terrorist. This was stated to TASS by Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev. “The further (after the capitulation of Ukraine - TASS) fate of Zelensky is not indifferent to us. He must be caught and put on trial for crimes against citizens of Russia and Ukrainians. If it is impossible to deliver such a criminal, the rules practiced for terrorists must be applied,” Medvedev emphasized.
