Ukraine aspires to bring together as many countries as possible in this initiative, and placed special emphasis on the importance of involving Africa and Latin America, where leaders like Lula himself have blamed Zelensky for the war, in putting pressure on Russia to end the invasion.

The Ukrainian president attributed the ambivalence with which some Latin American countries have responded to the Russian aggression to Moscow’s “information campaign”, and advocated intensifying relations with those nations “so that the truth is known” and they align themselves with Ukraine.

“All the countries that do not support the destruction of other States must speak, because we have common interests and we are on the same side”said Zelensky, who will open new embassies in Latin America to deepen political, economic and security contacts.
