Irritated by interpreter Ukraine’s Zelensky translates own comments at conference

13:37 August 19, 2022 AA

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky got irritated during a joint news conference with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in Lviv on Thursday after a trilateral meeting, when he noticed his official translator was not translating his remarks properly. After the translator finished translating Zelensky's Ukrainian remarks, the president who prefers to speak Ukrainian in public, completed the missing parts of his speech himself - in English. "And I said about the window of possibilities... I said that it couldn't be solved because... we see each day guns and fire from Russia," Zelensky said. "And I said 'Slava Ukraine," said Zelensky, emphasizing a phrase that means 'Glory to Ukraine." "Glory to Ukraine," the translator quickly replied. "Thank you so much. It's important," Zelensky said with evident annoyance.
