‘Evil cannot be trusted,”
These were the words of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in his address to the UN General Assembly, as he urged the world to unite to end Russian aggression against his country.
In a passionate speech in New York, Zelensky said a nuclear-armed Moscow must be stopped from “pushing the world to the final war”.
He also accused Russia of weaponising everything from food to energy.
Russia’s full-scale invasion has prompted widespread condemnation.
In a speech which focused heavily on the danger Russia poses to the world, he argued that other common challenges, such as climate change, can only be properly addressed after Moscow had been pushed back.
