Zelensky's video message was recorded against the background of a memorial plaque in memory of Imam Shamil, the leader of the resistance of the peoples of the Caucasus of the Russian Empire.
On Friday, September 9, an appeal by Vladimir Zelensky to the peoples of the Caucasus and other indigenous peoples of Russia appeared on the website of the Ministry of Education of Dagestan, in which the President of Ukraine called on the people of Russia to fight against mobilization and defend their freedom.
After some time, the appeal disappeared from the site, but Focus managed to take a screenshot.
Zelensky wrote down his appeal against the background of a memorial plaque in memory of Imam Shamil, who lived in the capital of Ukraine at the end of the 19th century. According to Zelensky, this is evidence that Ukraine retains the memory of the places that connected the cultures of the two peoples. In his address, the head of state said that the peoples of the Caucasus and other peoples who live on the territory of Russia have no reason to “be among those who serve those who want war.”
“No one should to participate in a shameful war. Dagestanis should not die in Ukraine,” Zelensky said, “Chechens, Ingush, Ossetians, Circassians and any other people who ended up under the Russian flag – almost 200 different peoples in total.”
