Europe News Desk!!! Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, who is in Jeddah to attend the 32nd summit of the Arab League, has claimed that some leaders of the regional bloc have turned a blind eye to Russia’s aggression against Kiev. Addressing the summit on Friday, President Zelensky said that there are people who turn a blind eye to captivity and illegal occupation, but it is important to remain independent, no matter how strong Russian influence is, reports Ukrainska Pravda. He said that even though the summit may have people with different views on the war in Ukraine, some calling it a conflict, they can still unite to protect people from Russian aggression. Of the Arab League countries, only Syria has openly supported Russia’s invasion, while the others have maintained good relations with Moscow.
I am sure all the nations of the League will understand this as our main spirit and the main call that I want to leave here. Here with me, he said, is Mustafa Dzhemilev, leader of the Crimean Tatar people, one of Ukraine’s indigenous peoples. Whose home is in Crimea, which is the center of Muslim culture in Ukraine. Zelensky insisted that Crimea was the first Ukrainian region to be annexed by Russia. Muslims are suffering from the oppression of Russia. He reminded the League of Saudi Arabia’s role in the liberation of people captured by the Russians on the territory of Ukraine, and said he believed this experience should be expanded. Upon his arrival in Jeddah on Friday, Zelensky was received by Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The leader of Ukraine will leave for Japan on Sunday from Saudi Arabia for the G7 summit, the BBC reported. Officials said he will attend the leaders’ session of the summit and a bilateral meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.
