In his article published on the website of Sky News, retired General Sean Bell of the Royal Air Force (RAF) stated that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy looked tired and disappointed at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York.
He emphasized that Zelenskyy had hoped that Russia's special military operation in Ukraine would be condemned, but some states put their own interests first and established closer economic ties with Russia.
"At the UN General Assembly session in New York, Volodymyr Zelenskyy looked tired, frustrated, and sometimes angry," Bell said.
The retired general emphasized that Zelenskyy might have hoped that the basic principles of the UN would lead to a condemnation of the military operation in Ukraine.
"However, some states are not only openly putting their own interests above collective peace and security, but are also establishing closer economic ties with Russia. Iran also took the opportunity to criticize the US for interfering in the conflict and prolonging it," Bell said.
