“We must understand how important it is not to be morally neutral against evil,” the president said.

On Thursday, March 30, President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke to Austrian parliamentarians. His video speech with a German translation was broadcast on the website of the Austrian Parliament, reports European Pravda.

In the speech, President Zelensky invited Wolfgang Sobotka, speaker of the lower house of the Austrian parliament, and other parliamentarians to Ukraine to see for themselves what Russia’s war has done to Ukraine.

“To see this means to understand our people. To understand how important each individual voice is in support of international law and Ukraine when these issues are discussed in the UN General Assembly, in the European Parliament or in other international platforms. We must understand how important it is not to be morally neutral against evil. It’s not about geopolitics… It’s about always being human and preserving humanity,” Zelensky said.

The President thanked Austria for humanitarian aid to Ukraine, support for the energy sector, demining and for the rehabilitation of Ukrainians who suffered from Russian aggression.

According to The Guardian, during Zelensky’s speech, pro-Russian MPs left the hall.

It was noted that representatives from the pro-Russian far-right Freedom Party (FPO) before the speech of the President of Ukraine announced that they would not ignore the appeal.

The parliamentarians were present at the beginning of the address and then left the meeting room. They left small posters on their desks with the party logo and the words “space for neutrality” and “space for peace”.

Note that Austria follows a policy of neutrality in the war between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. The country does not help Ukraine with weapons, but provides various assistance.

Earlier, Zelensky’s speech was announced in the Austrian parliament.

Recall that Austria joined the creation of a special tribunal for crimes of aggression by the Russian Federation against Ukraine.

Austria also supports the EU’s joint purchase of ammunition from European manufacturers to support Ukraine and replace its own stocks.
