Ukraine-Russia war live: Zelensky questions Russia’s UN seat as he visits New York

Volodymr Zelensky questioned Russia’s place at the United Nations ahead of the first day of the General Assembly in New York.

The Ukrainian president said that the UN needs to answer for “allowing his country’s invader a seat at the tables of power.” 

He said: “For us, it’s very important that all our words, all our messages, will be heard by our partners. And if in the United Nations still — it’s a pity, but still — there is a place for Russian terrorists, the question is not to me. I think it’s a question to all the members of the United Nations.”

Mr Zelensky is due to address world leaders at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday and speak on Wednesday at a UN Security Council meeting about Ukraine. 

Russia is a permanent, veto-wielding member of the council, and Foreign Minister Minister Sergey Lavrov is expected to make remarks.

Asked whether he’d stay in the room to listen, Mr Zelensky said: “I don’t know how it will be, really.”
