“His presence there, like that of any leader of any country in the world who receives an invitation, signifies that these people want peace. And it should be a just peace for Ukraine,” noted Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The President emphasized the importance of Brazil’s support for Ukraine. However, for a long time, Ukraine was unable to convey to this country the truth about the war unleashed by Russia. This was due to Brazil’s long-term relationship with the Soviet Union, the continuation of its policies by modern Russia, and the promotion of Russian propaganda narratives in the information space of Latin America.

“And this is a big advantage for you that Brazilian journalists started visiting Ukraine, understanding what is going on here and then publishing this information,” the President said.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked the journalists for coming to Ukraine and added that he invites the President of Brazil to visit our country.

The Head of State also reminded that he had met with Lula da Silva in September 2023 on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session, where he had the opportunity to talk to him personally.
