In response to Putin’s proclamations of “brotherhood” between ‘Big Russia’ and ‘Little Russia,” President Zelenskiy said the brotherly relationship is more like the relationship between Cain and Abel

, the fratricidal brothers in the Bible. If Ukrainians and Russians are truly “one people” he said, the blue and gold flag of Ukraine would be flying over the Kremlin. Noting the length of the essay, Zelenskiy said: “I can only say I’m jealous that the president of such a great country can afford to spend so much time on such a volume of work.”
