He asked the United Nations Security Council to condemn Russian attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure, which is unlikely to happen given that the Russia is a permanent member with the right of veto.

A “terrorist state” cannot take part in UN Security Council votes, said Ukraine’s president, who invited a UN delegation to Ukraine to assess damage to energy infrastructure caused by Russian attacks.

After accusing Moscow of instrumentalizing energy, the Ukrainian president said that “the UN can change this situation so that it is not a hostage of an international terrorist – Russia”.

Zelensky underlined that because of the Russian missile attacks on the energy infrastructure of his country, not only Ukrainians but also the residents of neighboring countries are suffering. When the mercury drops below zero and tens of millions of people are left without electricity, heat and water, it amounts to a “weapon of mass destruction, a clear crime against humanity“, said the president of Ukraine.

Russia has long been trying to turn the UN Security Council into a platform for rhetoric. But it was created as the world’s most powerful platform for decisions and actions. Therefore, the Security Council must give a clear assessment of the actions of the terrorist state. Ukraine proposes that the Security Council adopt such a resolution condemning all forms of energy terror. I confirm the invitation from Ukraine regarding the mission of UN experts to critical infrastructure facilities of our country that have been or may be hit by Russian missiles. It is necessary to give a proper assessment of damage and destruction. It should be stated that these are strikes against the very infrastructure that ensures the lives of tens of millions of people. It is absolutely possible. The world should not be held hostage by one international terrorist.

“They killed a baby”

Meanwhile, in his nightly sermon broadcast through his social media pages, Zelensky stressed: “The European Parliament recognized Russia as a terrorist state. And Russia that doesn’t care about the rest of the world continued its missile attacks against Ukraine. They used rockets to attack a hospital again and killed a baby. They hit us with 67 missiles in order to harm the very lives of people in Ukraine and caused a blackout.”.

“All this clearly shows who they are and who we are. The invaders have not understood that they only have today. Tomorrow, however, is ours,” he asserted and announced that the US would send a new military aid package to Ukraine amounting to $400 million.

Today, the European Parliament recognized Russia as a terrorist state. And Russia – as if the whole world does not matter – continued its missile attacks today. The United States of America has announced another package of support in the amount of 400 million dollars. Everything necessary so that we can protect life and freedom. And Russia used missiles for another attack on another hospital and killed… a baby. Today, we are deploying Points of Invincibility across the country to support our people. To provide heat, electricity and communication. And Russia spends 67 missiles to hit the very basis of life of any people anywhere in Ukraine and provokes a blackout in Ukraine. Today, our team managed to bring home another 36 Ukrainians. In spite of everything, we save our people, and we will definitely return all prisoners and deportees. This shows everything very clearly – about us and about them. It shows everything very accurately. The Russian occupiers still haven’t understood that they have only today. And we definitely have tomorrow. 🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦

At the same time, he refused “the reckless threats and ultimatums” from Ukraine and its allies.

Nebenzia claimed that damage to Ukrainian infrastructure was caused by Ukrainian air defense missiles and called on the West to stop arming Kyiv.
