The head of state noted the most meaningful and positive participation of Ukraine in the UN General Assembly for all the years of independence.

He said this in a video message on September 23.

"This week I took part in several important formats

of communication with investors

. The summit under the auspices of

Forbes

is a gathering of the world's largest businessmen engaged in philanthropy. A video conference with representatives of

BlackRock

and

Goldman Sachs

- important global players. The Clintons' global initiative. Each such event adds attention to Ukraine , adds concrete projects and benefits to our state, strengthens our stability, brings our victory closer," Zelenskyy explained.

He also commented on the

meeting of the First Lady of Ukraine, Olena Zelenska

, with the Prime Minister of Great Britain, Liz Truss, in New York, calling it very substantive.

In addition, the wife of the president met with the first lady of France, Brigitte Macron, and together with Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal, she met with UN Secretary-General António Guterres.

In total, Zelenska held almost 20 meetings.

"At the invitation of Charles Michel, Olena took part in the

Women in Conflicts

forum , which took place on the platform of the General Assembly. She presented a special charity fund - the Olena Zelenska Foundation, in order to accumulate even more support for Ukrainians, specifically for the humanitarian direction - primarily education, medicine, recovery destroyed by Russian strikes. We are creating all the necessary institutional basis so

that everyone in the world can help us

as efficiently, quickly and reliably as possible," the president said.

He also informed that

Shmyhal held dozens of high-level meetings. 

"The emphasis is clear. The situation at the Zaporizhia NPP. Expansion of defense, financial and sanctions support. Support in preparing our country for winter, support in reconstruction. During each meeting, it was emphasized that

Russian terror must receive a clear global response

- military, economic and legal, in particular the recognition of Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism," the head of state disclosed the details.

There were also meetings of Shmyhal with the heads of the IMF, the World Bank, and other financial and investment majors of the world.  

Zelenskyi said that Ukraine presented its own proposals for security guarantees

for itself, for Europe and the world in New York 

 - a project developed by the Yermak-Rasmussen group. 

The President also noted the negotiations

with the Prime Minister of Japan

- the country that will soon chair the Group of Seven and the UN Security Council: "We discussed our priorities. Negotiations took place with the Prime Minister of Iraq - this is a new partner for Ukraine, an important partner."

At the same time

, Kuleba held more than 30 meetings,

most of which were with representatives of countries that are not traditional partners of Ukraine.

It is about strengthening the position in relations with Africa, Asia, and Latin America.    

"Probably, this is the most meaningful and positive

participation of Ukraine in the UN General Assembly

for all the years of our independence. The world not only talks about Ukraine, but also realized that by helping Ukraine, it also helps to solve urgent global problems and crises. We offer a way to make the world more stable and safer. The world has heard this," Zelensky emphasized.

He noted that a very

important event took place on September 23 in Izyum, Kharkiv Region. 

There, representatives of almost 20 diplomatic missions - the Baltic States and Eastern Europe, Germany, France, Spain, Slovenia, Croatia, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the EU Ambassador - saw with their own eyes what the Russian occupiers left behind.

"Broken houses, torture chambers, mass burial... The world will know full information about every crime committed by Russia in the temporarily occupied territories," the president assured.

We will remind, the day before Kuleba spoke at the UN Security Council and said that it is not enough that Ukraine wants peace.

Russia needs to prioritize diplomacy over war so that peace has a chance.
