from Yahoo News (on my cell phone, no URL available)  source is cited as "interview for Czech television, posted on Zelenskyy's social media on 2 November.  It is not clear what language Zelenskyy's original words were in.
<quote>There are many interceptions [of the invaders' conversations - ed.] I know the Russian language much better than these people who were talking to each other.  Then there is such a thing as obscene language.  They talk to their parents using those words all the time.  Every second word.

If that's how you talk to your parents, it's clear why you behave like that.  That is, they are uneducated, ill-mannered, shameless animals.
