President of Ukraine Zelensky will argue for a quick victory over Russia in his addresses to the UN and at a meeting with US President Biden this week.

This is reported with reference to an interview with Mykhailo Podolyak, an advisor to the head of the Presidential Office, to CNN.


Podolyak said that Zelensky would use the platforms to explain "why this war should have a fair ending," and "that helping Ukraine is an investment in stability, in global rules, in the restoration of international law”.

Zelensky will also emphasize that "this war can be accelerated if there is a sufficient amount of weapons for Ukraine," Podolyak said.

World leaders are meeting in New York starting Monday at the UN General Assembly.

In addition to addressing the General Assembly, Zelensky also plans to hold several meetings with other world leaders in New York, according to people familiar with the plans. After that, the Ukrainian president intends to travel to Washington to meet with Biden.
