Ukraine’s President Zelenskyy Demands “Accountability” For Russia’s Crimes “At UNSC Meeting

Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, demanded “accountability” at the UN Security Council on Tuesday for Russian “crimes” carried out during Moscow’s invasion of his country.

People “were killed in their apartments, houses… civilians were crushed by tanks while sitting in their cars in the middle of the road, just for their pleasure,” Mr. Zelenskyy told the Council, including Moscow’s envoy, describing alleged atrocities in Ukraine’s Bucha.

“Accountability must be inevitable.”

Mr. Zelenskyy added that “hundreds of thousands” of Ukrainians had also been deported to Russia.

Zelenskyy urges the United Nations to “act immediately” on President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of his country, calling for Russia to be expelled from the UN security council.

He also called on the 15-member council, which aims to ensure international peace and security, to “remove Russia as an aggressor and a source of war, so it cannot block decisions about its own aggression, its own war.”

“The United Nations can be simply closed. Ladies and gentlemen, are you ready to close the UN? And the time of international law is gone? If your answer is no, then you need to act immediately,” he added in his video address.
