Volodymyr Zelensky Warns Russian War on Ukraine Threatens the World

HeadlineSep 20, 2023

Here in New York, world leaders addressed the U.N. General Assembly Tuesday. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky warned Russia’s invasion poses a threat to all nations.

President Volodymyr Zelensky: “And it is clear, Russia’s attempt to weaponize the food shortage on the global market in exchange for a recognition for some, if not all, of the captured territories. Russia is launching the food prices as weapons. The impact stems from the Atlantic coast of Africa to the Southeast Asia. And this is the threat scale.”

President Biden expressed ongoing support for Ukraine and condemned Russia’s “naked aggression.” In his speech, Biden also called for global climate action, global AI regulations, managing competition with China, and urged the U.N. to back a “security support mission” to Haiti, where gang violence has been surging.
