KIEV – President Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky says there won’t be World War III because the tide is changing in the ongoing battle with Russia .
His comments were conveyed when he appeared virtually at the annual Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday.
During Hollywood’s 80th Golden Globe Awards, broadcast live, Zelensky said, “The first World War took millions of lives. The second World War took tens of millions of lives. There will be no third World War, this is not a trilogy.”
“Ukraine will stop Russia’s aggression on our soil with the help of the free world,” he said, as quoted by Asian News International, Wednesday (11/1/2023).
“It is 2023 now; the war in Ukraine is not over, but the tide has turned,” Zelensky said.

At the start of his speech, Zelensky pointed out that the award show started in 1943 when World War II was drawing to a close and it was clear who would win but there were still some battles to be fought.
“The award was born at a special time. World War II is not over, but everyone knows who will win. There are still battles and tears ahead. It was then that the Golden Globe Awards appeared to honor the best player of 1943,” he explained.
He thanked those who support Ukraine’s freedom, saying “our common struggle for freedom, for democracy, for the right to exist, for the right to love is unifying.”
