Amidst Russia’s brutal aggression, a German interpreter burst into tears while translating the Ukrainian president’s speech.
While reading Volodymyr Zelensky’s words to Welt, the journalist, whose name was not disclosed, burst into tears.
She was in the middle of the press conference when tears from the microphone drowned out her words.
The politician was providing an update on Ukraine’s precarious position as Russian forces knocked on Kyiv’s door overnight.
Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin has ordered Russia’s nuclear forces to go on high alert against what he called “offensive statements” by the NATO powers.
An anonymous journalist burst into tears while reading Volodymyr Zelensky’s words.
A German translator managed to translate the first part of Zelensky’s speech, saying: “Russia is on the wrong path. Russia must lose its voice at the United Nations.”
She continued: “Ukraine, we definitely know …”
Her voice began to crack and she began to say, “What we stand for” before the mic went silent.
The woman took a deep breath and tried to continue, then simply said to the viewer, “I’m sorry.”
“The night was tough,” Zelensky said.
“They want to bomb more Ukrainian cities. They want to kill our children even more insidiously.
“This is an evil that has come to our land and must be destroyed.” He also provided an update on talks with foreign powers.
Volodymyr Zelensky (pictured left) confirmed today that negotiations between Kyiv and Moscow will take place on the Belarusian border – Vladimir Putin (pictured today on a trip to the National Space Center) has ordered the military operating Russia’s nuclear deterrent to be on alert amid boiling tensions with the West. The Ukrainian president’s office said the two delegations would meet “without preconditions” near the Pripyat River, in a deal made over the phone with Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko.
Despite promising press conferences, the situation in Ukraine still risked boiling over as Russian forces surrounded Kyiv.
Meanwhile, Putin has ordered Russia’s nuclear forces to be put on high alert in response to what he called “aggressive statements” by NATO powers.
The directive raised concerns that the crisis could escalate into nuclear war, whether intentional or inadvertent.
A senior Pentagon official said, “If the calculations are wrong, we could be throwing forces that could make things much more dangerous.”
Amid heightened tensions, Ukraine said its delegation was scheduled to meet with Russian officials.
However, it remained unclear what the Kremlin’s ultimate objectives in Ukraine would be and what measures would be sufficient to satisfy Moscow.
A fast-moving development took place as the Russian army approached Kyiv, a city of almost three million people.
Street fighting also erupted in Kharkov, Ukraine’s second largest city, and a key port in the country’s south came under pressure from invading forces.
However, once again the Ukrainian defenders put up fierce resistance and appeared to delay the invasion.

In issuing the nuclear warning directive, President Putin referred not only to statements by NATO member states, but also to the harsh financial sanctions imposed by the West.
Putin has told his defense minister and army chief of staff to put nuclear weapons in a “special configuration for combat missions”.
He said: “Western countries are not only acting unfriendly towards us in the economic field.
“However, senior officials from key NATO members have made offensive statements regarding our country.”
U.S. defense officials will not reveal current nuclear forces, other than to say the military is always ready to defend the homeland and allies.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said it was relying on a pattern Putin used weeks before he launched his invasion.
She said it was “manufacturing non-existent threats to justify further attacks.”
She told ABC’s “This Week” that Russia is not under threat from NATO or Ukraine.
She continued: “We have the ability to defend ourselves, but we also need to point out what we’re seeing here.”
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told CNN in response to Russia’s nuclear warning, “This is dangerous rhetoric. This is irresponsible behaviour.
