Сivil society so strong no “dragon” can emerge there – Zelensky

An authoritarian regime would be impossible in Ukraine…President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said while speaking with the faculty and experts at Stanford University.

Asked whether he is afraid to become a “dragon” after killing one, the head of state said: “As for ‘killing a dragon,’ I’ve been President of Ukraine for two years already. The situation is more complicated with your acquaintances (Russia – ed.)….”


Zelensky mentioned Mark Zakharov’s movie “To Kill a Dragon.” He said that Ukrainians and Russians have common periods of history and victory, while at the same time, Russia’s state policy differs from that of Ukraine as it is aimed at taking, not giving.
