All eyes were on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, where his American counterpart Joe Biden called on all countries to “rise up against Russian aggression.”
“Russia believes the world will get tired and let it brutalize Ukraine without consequences,” Joe Biden said.
“If we allow Ukraine to be dismembered, is the independence of nations still guaranteed? The answer is no,” he insisted, to the applause of the Ukrainian president and the public.
The Ukrainian counteroffensive “is progressing steadily” against Russian troops and will soon be supported by the arrival of American Abrams tanks on the ground, the United States assured this Tuesday during a meeting with its allies in Germany.
In New York, Joe Biden once again explained his country’s massive support for President Volodymyr Zelensky’s army, seeming very attentive to his counterpart’s speech: “Only Russia is responsible for this war. Only it has the power to end it.” this war. Only he stands in the way of peace.”
“We must resist this blatant aggression today to deter other potential aggressors tomorrow,” he added.
A year ago, Volodymyr Zelensky received exceptional permission to speak by video message.
This time, he is present in person, at this annual mass where he will speak on Tuesday afternoon, before participating in a special meeting of the Security Council on Wednesday and leaving for Washington, where he will be received at the White House on THURSDAY. .
