The people at the conference are still listening to speeches from other leaders. People from Guatemala, Hungary, Switzerland, Egypt, and Kyrgyzstan will be contacting them. And that’s right before the afternoon session officially starts.
However, the main focus was on Volodymyr Zelensky, who is the president of Ukraine. Here is a short overview of what he talked about.
He told world leaders that Russia is invading his country, and it’s a very serious threat to the whole world. He also said that Russia should not be allowed to have nuclear weapons.
He said that President Putin is turning everything, like food, energy, and nuclear power, into weapons. He said Russia taking control of Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant – which is the largest in Europe – has made it dangerous like a “dirty bomb”.
Russian forces in Ukraine kidnapped many children and taught them to dislike their own country.
