“The wars of the past have prompted our predecessors to create institutions that were supposed to protect us from war. But… They don’t work. We see it. You see it. So, we need new ones. New institutions. New alliances. And we offer them.We offer to create an association, U-24, United for peace. A union of responsible states that have the strength and conscience to stop conflicts. Immediately.
Provide all necessary assistance in 24 hours. If necessary, weapons. If necessary, sanctions. Humanitarian support. Political support. Funding. Everything necessary to preserve peace quickly. To save lives,” this is the game changing proposal made by Volodimyr Zelensky (President of Ukraine) in his tele-speech before the US Congress today.
Obviosuly he also thanked the help already received from the USA, asked for more help and above all told again about the needed for aircraft and suport to keep Ukraine’s sky free for Russian airstrikes.
Plea for an actually effective union of nations not only to protect freedom but also to help during natural dissasters
“In addition, such an association could provide assistance to those who are experiencing natural disasters, man-made disasters. Who fell victim to a humanitarian crisis or epidemic.
Remember how difficult it was for the world to do the simplest thing – to give everyone vaccines. Vaccines against Covid. To save lives. To prevent new strains. The world spent months and years doing things that could have been done much faster. So that there were no human losses.
Ladies and Gentlemen!. Americans!.
“If such an alliance, the U-24, had already been formed, I believe it would have saved thousands of lives. In our country, many other countries that need peace so crucially, that suffered inhuman destruction… I ask you to watch one video now. Video of what Russian troops did on our land. We have to stop this. We must prevent such things. Preventively destroy every aggressor who seeks to conquer another nation.
Please watch…And in the end to sum it up.
Today it is not enough to be the leader of the nation. Today it takes to be the Leader of the world. Being the Leader of the world means to be the Leader of Peace.
Peace in your country does not depend anymore only on you and your people. It depends on those next to you, on those who are strong.
Strong does not mean big. Strong is brave and ready to fight for the life of his citizens and citizens of the world,” further explained and pled the President of Ukraine.
Ukrainians need for aircraft and guarantee of closing for their air space
“You know what defense systems we need. C-300 and other similar systems,” Zelensky continued. “You know how much depends on the battlefield on the ability to use aircraft. Powerful, strong aircraft. To protect your people. Your freedom. Your land. Aircraft that can help Ukraine. That can help Europe.
And you also know that they are available. But on land. Not in the Ukrainian sky. They do not protect our people.
‘I have a dream’, these words are known to each of you. Today I can say: I have a necessity. The necessity to protect our sky. The necessity for your decision. Your help. And it will mean exactly the same thing. The same thing you feel. When you hear: I have a dream,” this was the moving plead for air military suport and deffence by Zelensky before the Congress of the United States. Surely an speech that makes our joint history should Ukrainians win or not the Russia-Ukraine war.
