젤렌스키, 러 방해에도 안보리 화상 연설…’핵 공갈 멈추라’

Ukraine marked… its Independence Day… this past Wednesday… that was yesterday… August 24th… against the backdrop… of precisely… six months… of Russian invasion.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy… took the occasion… to denounce… Moscow’s escalation of tensions… around Europe’s largest nuclear power plant.
Shin Se-byuck explains.

On the 31st anniversary of Ukraine’s independence from the Soviet Union on Wednesday,… Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy delivered a speech to the United Nations Security Council… where he urged Russia to stop all military provocations near the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.

“Russia should, without any conditions, stop nuclear blackmail and completely withdraw from the station.”

He also called for the international community to act in a united and decisive manner against Russia to ensure there is “no threat of a radiation catastrophe” ever again.

“… if Russia is not stopped now and in Ukraine, if it is not stopped by the victory of Ukraine, then all these Russian murderers will inevitably end up in other countries. Europe. Asia. Africa. Latin America.”

Ukraine was forced into muted celebrations to mark the country’s Independence Day holiday,… amid warnings that Moscow would step up attacks on civilians.
Events were canceled nationwide, and air raid sirens blared.
And while there no attacks on the capital Kyiv,… the day was darkened by a missile strike on a train station in eastern Ukraine, which killed at least 22 people and left dozens wounded.

Meanwhile, fresh military support for Ukraine was announced on the same day.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson made an unexpected visit to Kyiv on Wednesday and pledged to provide further military aid for Ukraine.
The 63-point-5 million dollar package will include unmanned surveillance and missile systems for the Ukrainian military.

U.S. President Joe Biden also announced 3 billion dollars in fresh military aid… in order to support the people of Ukraine who are fighting “to defend their sovereignty.”

In total, the United States has committed more than 13-point-5 billion dollars in security assistance to Ukraine.
