“We are dealing with a state that turns its veto at the U.N. Security Council into the right to die. This undermines the whole architecture of our global security.”

“Where is the peace? Where are those guarantees that the United Nations needs to guarantee? ” He said. “It is obvious that the key institution of the world — which must ensure the coercion of any aggressor to peace — simply cannot work effectively.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, are you ready to close the U.N.? Do you think that the time of international law is gone? If your answer is no, then you need to act immediately. U.N. system must be reformed immediately, so that the veto is not the right to die.We must immediately force the aggressor to peace!” 

Zelensky also said that Russian troops are deliberately destroying cities, blockading them, provoking mass starvation. At the same time, according to him, “the massacres in Bucha are just one of many examples of what the occupiers are doing on our land.”
