Zelenskiy discusses Russian turmoil with Biden, Trudeau, Duda

KYIV, June 25 (RushHourDaily) – Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy stated that he talked about the weekend’s turmoil in Russia in phone conversations with the leaders of the United States, Canada and Poland on Sunday, and that the “vulnerability” of Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin had been “revealed”. The phone conversations occurred after an extraordinary unsuccessful rebellion by Russian mercenary boss Yevgeny Prigozhin on Saturday that raised questions about Putin’s hold on power as Ukraine presses a counteroffensive in its south and east.

“We talked about the course of hostilities and the processes taking place in Russia. The world must put pressure on Russia until international order is restored,” Zelenskiy said after a phone call with U.S. President Joe Biden. He said he and Biden had also talked about further expanding defence cooperation with an emphasis on long-range weapons, coordination ahead of the NATO summit in Vilnius next month and preparations for a “Global Peace Summit” he has promoted. “Yesterday’s events revealed the vulnerability of Putin’s regime,” the statement said.

In another similar statement, Zelenskiy said he had informed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a phone call about the “threatening situation” at Ukraine’s vast, Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. Zelenskiy cautioned earlier this week that Russia was considering carrying out an act of “terrorism” involving the release of radiation at the plant, an allegation denied by Russia. “Ukraine’s partners must demonstrate a principled response, in particular at the NATO Summit in Vilnius,” he said.

The Ukrainian leader made similar comments in a statement announcing a phone call with Polish President Andrzej Duda. Reporting by Tom Balmforth and Pavel Polityuk; Editing by Jane Merriman and Lisa Shumaker. Our Standards: The Thomson RushHourDaily Trust Principles.
