The Ukrainian delegation at the UN General Assembly has a mission to strengthen the international coalition in support of Ukraine
During his working visit to the United States, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal took part in the opening of the 77th Session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA).
At the key diplomatic event of the year, with the world’s attention riveted, leaders from around the world gathered to discuss the biggest challenges facing the world today. As part of the event, a video address by the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, is also planned.
As Denys Shmyhal reported, the Ukrainian delegation at the UNGA has a mission to strengthen the international coalition in support of Ukraine (in particular, to increase the supply of weapons and financial aid), intensify relations with the countries of the Global South (Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia) and bring russia to responsibility for the crimes in Ukraine.
“Global hunger, nuclear terrorism, unprecedented violence – these are the associations that russia evokes among world leaders today. All their speeches begin with the situation in Ukraine and the global consequences that the war has already caused and will cause in the future. Such significant interest of world leaders demonstrates their concern and desire to unite in the face of these terrible threats from the aggressor,” said Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal.
On the sidelines of the General Assembly, the Ukrainian delegation is also working on creating the prerequisites for launching a mechanism for compensating by russia for damages caused to Ukraine, holding russia’s top leadership personally responsible for crimes against Ukrainians in Bucha, Izyum and other Ukrainian cities.
