We must unite societies against the war unleashed by Russia and force it to seek peace, – President Zelensky

The least people around the world can do to help Ukraine is to be ambassadors of our country and spread the truth about Russia’s war against us. This was stated by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy during a conversation with students and lecturers of Japanese universities.

According to him, it is very important that societies abroad, in particular educated Asian students, do not forget about free Ukraine.

“We know that Russia spends a lot of money to convince the world that there is no war, that there was some kind of operation, etc. But you are aware of these dreadful consequences. So, just like our Ambassador, you are the ambassadors in your communities who can spread the truth. No disinformation,” the President emphasized.

The Head of State noted: Ukraine strives to be supported, so no one should forget about this war, because the Ukrainian people protect not only Ukraine, but also the values of the entire civilized world.

“So, please spread all this among the same distinguished people as you from other countries,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

He noted that nowadays, weapons are not just things used on the battlefield.

“Information policy, information weapons have the same significant influence – influence on societies of various states, on their leaders,” the President said.

According to the Head of State, the right messages helped unite Europe and the world around Ukraine.

“Today, most countries of the world know that there is a war in Ukraine, and they know where the truth is. They know that Ukraine is defending itself against the war started by the Russian Federation. And I directly carry out this mission – I have to tell many societies what is happening in our country and unite other societies against the war that Russia has started and does not want to end. And with such actions, force Russia to seek peace,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized.

The President of Ukraine noted that our country needs the support and experience of Asian countries, and expressed gratitude to the Prime Minister of Japan and his government, which understands whose side the truth is on in this war.

According to Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the Japanese university community could participate in certain educational programs for Ukrainian schoolchildren or help in rebuilding the educational space.

The President emphasized that thousands of educational institutions in Ukraine have already been destroyed as a result of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation.

“And here it will be difficult to do without the support of partner countries, because today we are talking about a large-scale reconstruction of our state. Because on September 1, our children will go to school, and we need to help them a lot. Somewhere it is a technical issue – computers, somewhere it is educational programs. Any assistance will be appropriate and will not be superfluous,” the Head of State noted.
