The U.N. General Assembly was urged by President Joe Biden to support Ukraine and condemn Russian aggression.
Russians reject Putin's call for 300,000 reservists and flee the country as a result.
President Joe Biden urged the U.N. General Assembly to support Ukraine and oppose Russian aggression, denouncing the Russian invasion as an assault on the guiding principles of the international organization.
According to Biden, "a full time member of the United Nations Security Council conquered its neighbor and tried to wipe a sovereign state off the map." "Russia has flagrantly broken the fundamental principles of the United Nations Charter."
Following Russian President Vladimir Putin's announcement of a partial military deployment on Wednesday, in which he once more blamed the West for the situation in Ukraine and claimed that it "wants to destroy our country," Biden's address was delivered.
Putin stated that "mobilization events" would start today with the activation of military reservists. Additionally, he mandated an increase in government support for Russian arms manufacturing.
Despite appearances, Russia has not yet declared war on Ukraine. Partial mobilization puts Russia on a stronger war footing and may require businesses and citizens to contribute more to the war effort.
Biden's speech was delivered after Russian President Vladimir Putin's declaration of a limited military deployment on Wednesday, during which he once more accused the West of being to blame for the situation in Ukraine and declared that it "wants to destroy our country."
Putin declared that today's activation of military reservists will mark the beginning of "mobilization activities." He also demanded a boost in government assistance for Russian arms production.
It might not look like it, but Russia has not yet launched war on Ukraine. A partial mobilization strengthens Russia's military position and might necessitate greater wartime contributions from businesses and civilians.
Zelenskyy declared that "Russia should earn for this war" and demanded that Russia be "punished" by a special U.N. tribunal.
At the 77th U.N. General Assembly in New York City, Zelenskyy declared, "We must at last recognize Russia as a the state of sponsor of terrorism."
Following Russian President Vladimir Putin's decision to gather hundreds of thousands of troops for war, Zelenskyy made bold remarks to international leaders.
Zelenskyy virtually appeared at the 77th U.N. General Assembly following an introduction by the Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, who has not left his war-weary country since Russia's full-scale invasion in February.
