His speech was eagerly awaited. For the first time since the start of the war in Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke Tuesday in New York before the UN General Assembly, alerting world leaders about the “massive destruction” that is accelerating in his country.
“The aggressor is sowing chaos, reducing cities and towns to a state of ruin, without resorting to nuclear weapons,” he stated from the United States.
This is the reason why Volodymyr Zelensky invited the international community to an upcoming “peace summit”, based on the Ukrainian plan that already – in whole or in part – has the support of more than 140 States.
There is no trust in “Evil”
To back up his statements, the Ukrainian president alerted his counterparts about possible peace agreements signed with Moscow.
“I know that shady agreements are being negotiated. We cannot trust Evil (…) Let’s show unity,” he insisted on the UN platform.
And he added: “Ask Prigozhin if Putin keeps his promises.” Volodymyr Zelensky thus referred to the recent death of the co-founder of the Russian paramilitary militia Wagner. The circumstances of Yevgeni Prigojine’s death are the subject of much speculation, particularly about a bomb attack or a Russian missile attack.
Two months earlier, in June, Wagner had aborted a rebellion against the Russian army, prompting Vladimir Putin to call Yevgeny Prigozhin a “traitor.”
An agreement was then reached between Wagner and the Russian General Staff for the mercenaries to leave Ukraine and settle in Belarus, an ally of Moscow, in order to train Alexander Lukashenko’s army.
