“We need a reform of the security system so that nuclear status does not serve as a license for any injustice” President Zelenskyy
The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that the nuclear status of the state should not be a “permission for injustice” concerning other countries.
Speaking via video link at the Delphi Forum on Saturday, he said that “injustice is what Russia is doing against us, against Ukraine, using its privileges in international organizations, as well as the fear of the use of nuclear weapons, the fear that Russia deliberately constantly spreads.”
He mentioned that in the 1990s, Ukraine gave up the third-largest nuclear arsenal. “In exchange for this, our country received written security promises from the most powerful states in the world, including Russia,” the President said, adding that as a result, one of these countries attacked Ukraine.
