Russia Ukraine War Latest Updates: The Virtual World Tour of Volodymyr Zelensky Proves A New Weapon In The Russia War2 min read
Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of a war-torn country, is both inspirational and humiliating. He’s urged lawmakers to empathise with Ukraine’s situation by drawing on their own history and self-perception. Despite being outgunned by Russia on land, in the air, and at sea, Ukraine is obviously winning the information war.
Zelensky asked lawmakers to identify with Ukraine’s misery by playing to their own history and self-image, as he has done at least eleven times since Russia invaded Ukraine precisely a month ago, on huge screens in Japan’s National Diet and, later, France’s National Assembly on Wednesday. At each location, Zelensky’s main message has been consistent, with the “more” he seeks frequently boiled down to tougher penalties against Russia.
The context, on the other hand, has been meticulously crafted. President Joe Biden announced a new aid package for Ukraine at $800 million. Ben Wallace, the UK’s defence secretary, said that the UK will provide Kyiv an extra 1,615 NLAW anti-tank missiles. At each location, Zelensky’s main message has been the same, with the “more” he seeks generally boiled down to tougher sanctions against Russia and either enforcing a no-fly zone or allowing Ukraine to do so on its own. Zelensky, a member of the Russian Foreign Affairs Committee, has urged Obama to implement a no-fly zone over Ukraine.
Nestle SA has announced that it would halt the majority of its sales and production operations in Russia. Switzerland has been asked to freeze Russian oligarchs’ bank accounts and real estate. As Hitler did for Jews, an Israeli politician accused Russia of pursuing a “final solution” in Ukraine.
