In addition, the Ukrainian president stated that it was also necessary for Kyiv to receive anti-aircraft defense systems, intelligence information and constant financing, an aid the United States has been recently supplying, according to Kremlin accusations.
Likewise, Zelensky submitted a new formula which, in his own standpoint, would be the only possible way to reach peace, and which is essentially based on punishing Russia no matter what, including the possibility of withdrawing its right to veto at the UN Security Council (UNSC), a measure which, according to experts, would set a threatening pattern.
The Ukrainian president, who made his recorded speech in English, reiterated the need for these sanctions, including those against Russian citizens so that they cannot travel to any country.
Zelensky added that Ukraine was already setting up a court to condemn Moscow, and for this reason his government will send its proposal to each of the UN member states.
Regarding the situation at the Zaporozhie nuclear power plant, the Ukrainian president said the facility was being shelled by Russian forces – a claim flatly denied by Moscow – and not by the Ukrainian army.
