Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy appealed to the Australian parliament to support Ukraine in its war against Russia.
Zelenskyy addressed the Australian parliament, Thursday, saying that Australia can be paramount for global security, which is now strengthened by Ukraine’s antiwar coalitions.
Zelenskyy said Russia’s aggression is not only a threat to Ukraine but also to Australia and the rest of the world.
Zelenskyy also appealed for new sanctions against Russia and said that Russian vessels should not be allowed in international ports.
“We can and should do more. We need new sanctions against Russia until they stop blackmailing other countries with a nuclear missile.”
In 2014, three Russians linked to Russia’s intelligence service and a Ukrainian that led a combat unit as a commander in Eastern Ukraine were charged with the murders of 298 passengers and crew of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 hit by a Russian-made Buk missile. Zelenskyy said that if Russia was sanctioned in 2014, the invasion in Ukraine should have not happened.
Ukraine remains undefeated and undisrupted with the support of the world, Zelenskyy said.
