RUSSIA AT THE PRESIDENCY OF THE UN, V. ZELENSKY DENOUNCES A “BANKRUPTCY”
Ukrainian head of state Volodymyr Zelensky denounced the “bankruptcy” of the United Nations, where Russia took over the presidency of the Security Council for the month of April on Saturday. “It is difficult to imagine anything that proves (further) the complete bankruptcy of such institutions,” he said in his evening message. “There is no form of terror that Russia has not already exercised,” he continued, calling for “reform of global institutions, including the UN Security Council.”
This “reform which is obviously long overdue is to prevent a terrorist state (…) from destroying the world. Terrorists must lose, must be held responsible for terror and do not preside anywhere”, insisted Volodymyr Zelensky. His Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dmytro Kouleba, had previously described the Russian presidency as a “slap in the face” to “the international community”, with Westerners speaking of “April Fool’s Day” on April 1.
