International response These demonstrations gave rise to a chain reaction of the different world leaders to express unity and calm. The objective was to launch a forceful but controlled message. This is what Biden did in his long-awaited speech, being firm in describing the Russian invasion as an “unnecessary and brutal war.” But above all, amplifying the message that Western leaders spread, in a coordinated manner, yesterday: Putin is losing the war. Biden began by attacking Russian President Vladimir Putin directly for his intention of having wanted to “erase to a sovereign state” and ended up proposing the enlargement of the UN Security Council to avoid the use of the veto (except in exceptional circumstances). The intention is that this body, dependent on the United Nations General Assembly, does not see its effectiveness impaired and “remains credible and effective,” said the US president after rejecting the constant vetoes of recent months that have blocked aid actions. in Ukraine.

In addition to regretting the latest actions of the Russian president, he called for increased pressure and isolation on him.

Finally, Volodymyr Zelenski participated with a pre-recorded speech in the day of yesterday from the United Nations General Assembly. The President of Ukraine requested the creation of a special court to punish Russia, in order to demand fair punishment because “a crime has been committed” against his country. “Punishment for the torture and humiliation of women and men. Punishment for the catastrophic turbulence that Russia caused with its illegal war against us and against the entire world”, he added, putting the epilogue to a day in which his country was once again the involuntary protagonist of one of the main annual international diplomatic meetings. .
