Zelensky: We are creating a system that will stop Russian aggression and guarantee long-term security.

Ukraine and its partners are gradually creating a system that will stop Russia's aggression, dismantle its consequences and guarantee long-term security - the security of Ukraine and the world.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said this in a new video address, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"Ukrainians went through genocide. And today we are doing everything possible and impossible to stop Russia's new genocidal policy. A new one – but similar to the one that killed millions of people in the 20th century. And we don't just fight off aggression. Step by step, we are creating a system that will stop aggression, dismantle its consequences, and guarantee long-term security – the security of Ukraine, all of Europe, and the world," Zelensky said.

He added that the first International Summit on Food Security was held in Ukraine on Saturday. The summit was deliberately held on these days, when everyone commemorates the victims of the Holodomor of 1932-1933, Zelensky said.

According to him, food security is one of the key elements of global stability. This is where Ukraine's leading role is most evident.

He said that thanks to Ukraine's initiative to export grain from three of its Black Sea ports, Ukraine sent about 12 million tonnes of food to 40 countries on the world market.

"Of this amount, more than two and a half million tonnes are for countries that are not just short of food, but in a severe crisis. As part of the UN Food Programme, we have helped countries where people are literally starving or on the verge of starvation. These include Ethiopia and Yemen. We also helped Somalia and Afghanistan. And this is just the beginning," he said.

Zelensky recalled that the launch of a new humanitarian initiative - Grain from Ukraine - was officially announced on Saturday.

"And we already have agreements with many partners on joint work within Grain from Ukraine. The European Union, the United States, France, the UK, Germany, Japan, Qatar, Canada, Norway, the Netherlands, Finland, Belgium, Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Italy, Austria, Spain, Sweden, Slovenia, Switzerland and others. More than 20 countries supported our food security summit," he said.

Zelensky noted that the total amount that has been accumulated for Grain from Ukraine is already about $150 million. "Work continues. We are preparing up to 60 ships. All of us together do not just send Ukrainian foodstuffs to those countries that suffer the most from the food crisis. We affirm that never again should hunger be used as a weapon," he said.

Zelensky noted that if it were not for Ukrainian food, "if it weren't for our joint leadership with our partners, social stability in such regions as North Africa or the Middle East would not have been maintained."

"This is exactly what Russia wanted. We must – and we can! – not allow this," he said.
