Follow live the latest news on the war in Ukraine.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmigal has launched a message of thanks to the international community for the references to war that several of the international leaders have made this Tuesday during their speeches at the United Nations General Assembly.
For the Ukrainian head of government, as he noted in a post on Telegram, the Russian invasion of his country has provoked major international leaders to allude to “world hunger, nuclear terrorism and unprecedented violence.”
“All their speeches begin with the situation in Ukraine and the global consequences that the war has already provoked and will provoke in the future,” he has said, stressing that this “interest” demonstrates “their enthusiasm and willingness to unite in the face of the aggressor’s terrible threats.”
Shmigal, present in New York together with Ukrainian First Lady Olena Zelenska, plans to take part in the activities scheduled in the framework of the 77th UN General Assembly.
“Our Ukrainian delegation is directly at the UN headquarters to strengthen the international coalition in support of Ukraine and create influence to hold Russia accountable for its crimes,” Shmigal noted.
However, the president, Volodimir Zelenski, will speak via videoconference, an issue that was criticized and rejected by Russia, although in the end the member states gave their approval for the president to launch his speech telematically.
