"Ukraine has shattered Russia's myth that it can take over any country in a few days, as well as the myth that Ukraine is not "a real state," said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said during his speech at the Munich Security Conference, APA reports citing Ukrinform.

"Ukraine has already shattered myths with which Russia tried to cloud reality and which the world, unfortunately, the myth that Russia could capture another country in a few days or weeks, whenever it wants. Ukrainians have been holding for 724 days. Would you have believed 725 days ago that this was even possible?" he said.

According to him, another Russian myth has been demolished about Ukraine as supposedly "not a real country."

According to him, Ukraine has ruined the myth that Russian weapons supposedly have some advantages over Western ones, but in reality, Russia is worse in all respects.

"That's why, for the first time in Russian history, Putin bowed to Iran and North Korea for help," Zelensky said.
