Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has used an opportunity at the 44th CARICOM meeting, to plead to member states and leaders to support a motion being presented at the United Nations next week condemning Russia’s invasion and continued war with Ukraine.
He said “we will present at the UN General Assembly a resolution on a comprehensive, just, and sustainable peace in Ukraine, and hence the restoration of the full force of the international rules-based order. Your votes matter,”.
Last year, CARICOM issued a joint statement, condemning the military attacks and invasion of Ukraine by Russia.
In their statement, they called for the immediate and complete withdrawal of the military presence and cessation of any further actions that may intensify the current perilous situation in that country.
