Ukraine’s president delivers address to G20 leaders
Volodymyr Zelenskiy has told the G20 that “now is the time” to end Russia’s “destructive war”.
Addressing the summit in Bali virtually from Ukraine, Zelenskiy said there would be no Minsk 3, referring to the two failed agreements to end the conflict in Ukraine.
“We will not allow Russia to wait out and build up its forces … I am convinced that now is the time when Russia’s war must and can be stopped.”
Referring to the ongoing fighting at Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant, Zelenskiy said that no one had the right to blackmail the world with a nuclear disaster and that Russia has turned the plant into a “radioactive bomb that can explode at any moment.”
