Zelenskyy Warns United Nations of More Russian War Crimes

AllSides Summary

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed the United Nations Security Council in a video Tuesday, warning them of more Russian war crimes and saying that the massacre in Bucha is only one of the atrocities Russia has engaged in over the past few weeks.

He also stressed that the U.N. needed to stand for peace, and asked the U.N. Security Council to seek "full accountability" for war crimes, including reports of Russian troops crushing people with tanks and killing unarmed civilians. Before the remarks, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the alleged actions in Bucha were a "deliberate campaign to kill, to torture, to rape, to commit atrocities."

Zelenskyy's comments were covered prominently across the political spectrum.
