Volodymyr Zelenskyy, in his speech at the UN General Assembly, not only made a kind of proposal, but also got confused in quotes from Vladimir Putin.
Volodymyr Zelenskiy, the President of Ukraine, quoted Vladimir Putin in his speech about the danger of undermining the authority of the UN. Moreover, he quoted in pure Russian, according to RIA Novosti.
An excerpt from the speech of the President of Russia referred to the architecture of international relations. In the event of the destruction of one of the fundamental international institutions, and the UN is so, the world, instead of collective work, will be ruled by the law of the strong. Vladimir Putin then figuratively expressed that selfishness would reign, diktat would prevail over equality, and real democracy and freedom would become less and less.
No one else in the world feels safe and cannot hide behind international law,
– finished the phrase Zelensky.
He pointed out that the quote was taken from the “Munich” speech of Vladimir Putin, which he gave in 2007. But he was mistaken by about 8 years and one continent: it was the speech of the Russian President at the UN General Assembly in 2015.
However, the President of Ukraine made a mistake with the meaning too. If Vladimir Putin spoke about the preservation of international law as a guarantor of the security of the freedom of existence of peoples and states, then Vladimir Zelensky used this quote in an attempt to justify Nariman Dzhelyalov, the deputy head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People *, who was arrested in Russia in early September by the FSB of the Russian Federation. He was charged with sabotage on a gas pipeline near Simferopol. And here is the freedom of speech and the struggle for their rights, Zelensky did not explain. But he traditionally accused Russia of violating human rights and the neighboring state.
* Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people is an extremist organization banned in Russia.
