Zelenskyy at the UN General Assembly: Russia is weaponizing food and committing genocide by taking Ukrainian children to Russia.

During his remarks to the United Nations General Assembly, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy accused Russia of weaponizing the global food supply in its war in Ukraine. He said that in addition to ammunition and military equipment, Russia is “weaponizing many other things,” like the supply of food, which impacts many countries, not just Ukraine. Also, the Ukrainian president condemned Russia’s wartime practice of forcibly taking Ukrainian children to Russia, calling it “Genocide. We know the names of tens of thousands of children and have evidence of hundreds of thousands of others kidnapped by Russia in the occupied territories of Ukraine and later deported,” he said Tuesday.  “We are trying to get these children back home. But while in Russia, these children are taught to hate Ukraine. And all ties with their families are broken. And this is a genocide,” Zelenskyy said. The Ukrainian president added the world must unite to defeat Russia’s aggression in Ukraine.
