"Pressure on Russia yields results only when it is global": Zelensky addressed students of leading universities in the Netherlands. Video
President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed students of three universities in the Netherlands, pointing out the important contribution of their state to a common free, democratic and humane future. He noted that no material benefits should replace the key values on which their countries stand for the new generation of Europeans.
The words of the Ukrainian guarantor are quoted by the press service of his Office. Zelensky joined an online conference in the halls of Leiden University, the University of Amsterdam and The Hague University of Applied Sciences.
"I believe that we have succeeded in uniting the world around Ukraine. The Netherlands, Europe, the United States, Latin America and other countries. The world is united in the UN, but not on all topics like the tribunal or bigger pressure on the Russian Federation. The world very often changes values to economic relations," the leader of the Ukrainian nation emphasized.
Zelensky expressed his firm belief that unity and perseverance should yield results in bringing all those responsible for unleashing the war against Ukraine to justice. To convict for the original crime, the crime of aggression, it is necessary to have unity again.
"We need it very much. But it's difficult for leaders of different states in the world to support a tribunal condemning the leader of another state. Even if it unleaded a war against freedom and people from another country," the president concluded.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, back in May Zelensky addressed the graduates of Johns Hopkins University, the first research university in the United States He welcomed them with their graduation from one of the greatest universities in the world and urged them to remember that the most valuable resource on the planet is time.
While speaking to students at the legendary Harvard in 2022, Zelensky assured that the free world is stronger than Russia and its ambitions, which go back to the distant past.
"We will be able to restore peace, I do not doubt that. But the answer to the question of when it will happen depends on the answer to the question of how often we will act first," the Ukrainian guarantor said at that time.
