“Zelensky warns world leaders that Russian aggression may extend beyond Ukraine,” Name of the site The newspaper “New York Times after the speech of the President of Ukraine at the UN General Assembly in New York on September 19. This is a welcome speech as he spoke at the same meeting last year only via video conference.

“Depicting Russia as a country accustomed to aggression, Zelensky recalled Moscow’s military interventions in Moldova, Georgia and Syria; increasingly tight control over Belarus; and his threats towards the Baltic countries”, noted the New York Daily newspaper live, quoting Vladimir Zelensky.

“The purpose of this war against Ukraine is to turn our territory, our people, our lives, our resources into weapons against you, against the rules-based international order.”

At the beginning of his speech, Zelensky emphasized that Russia exploits essential goods, such as food and energy. “not only against our country, but against your entire country.”

For the Ukrainian president, it was about showing other leaders that they care and opposing calls for a quick peace. “This rare cross-Atlantic visit comes at a crucial time in his efforts to continue aid to Ukraine as concerns grow among Southern leaders and Republican state congressional lawmakers United, who believe the war is consuming too many resources and distracting from other priorities.” note Washington Post.

Zelensky received “warm welcome”, the capital’s newspaper emphasizes, even if the meeting did not take place “only half full.”

“As expected, Zelensky rejected any peace plan that did not mean his country’s victory over Russia. observable The New York Times said there was a chance to “end aggression on the attacked state’s terms.” His words drew thunderous applause, the American newspaper adds.

Biden turns to the South

A little earlier, US President Joe Biden made a very broad speech in which he “sought to unite the world under his vision of global order” emphasizes New York Times. In the absence of other leaders, including the presidents of Russia and China, Biden “took the opportunity to reach out to the “South,” those traditionally neutral developing countries,” who did not want to take part in the war in Ukraine, sometimes regretting “that the West [lui] attaches too much importance and ignores its own crises.”

Biden called on world leaders not to play appeasement with Moscow, saying: “If we abandon the principles underlying the Charter of the United Nations in order to please an aggressor, can any State in this Assembly feel confidently protected?”
