WATCH: Ukraine’s Zelenskyy calls for peace | #shorts

Without identifying him by name, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy told the world’s leaders at the United Nations Wednesday that only Russian President Vladimir Putin wants to continue waging war between the two nations.

“Ukraine wants peace. Europe wants peace,” Zelenskyy said in a recorded speech played during the second day of the United Nations General Assembly meetings. “We have seen who is the only one who wants war. There is only one entity among all U.N. member states who would say now, if he could interrupt my speech, that he is happy with this war — with his war.”
