Ukraine’s president has told the Hungarian prime minister, Viktor Orbán, to choose a side when it comes to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine during a heartfelt address to EU leaders. During the address, Zelenskiy recalled visiting a memorial on the banks of the Danube that commemorates Hungarian Jews who were shot in 1944-45 by local fascists. Scores of iron shoes are embedded in the embankment in memory of those who were forced to remove their footwear, before being shot into the freezing river. Speaking directly to Orbán, Zelenskiy said: ‘Please, if you can, get to your waterfront, look at those shoes. And you will see how mass killings can happen again in today’s world ‘
