Since Sept. 21, when Russian President Vladimir Putin announced mobilization against Ukraine, Russians have tried to burn at least five recruitment offices in the country, including in Saint Petersburg; some local administration buildings have also been under attack, according to Meduza.

Lukashenko: ‘There will be no mobilization in Belarus.’ Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko said that his government doesn’t plan to mobilize Belarusians, state-controlled news agency Belta reported on Sept. 23. However, Belarus regularly holds military drills to be able to respond to “possible threats and terrorist attacks,” Belta reported, citing Lukashenko.

Media: Men can’t leave Russian-occupied Crimea without military permission. Men must obtain permits from local military enlistment offices before leaving the peninsula, Crimea-based news agency Kryminform reported, citing the Russian occupation government of Ukraine’s Crimea. Permits can be issued to men who have reasons to leave Crimea, such as business trips, education, or medical treatment.

Zelensky: Russia trying to mobilize ‘as many men as possible’ among Crimean Tatars. Ukraine has evidence that Russian occupying forces are trying to find and mobilize men among the Crimean Tatar population in Russian-occupied Crimea for Russia’s war against Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelensky said in his evening address. Zelensky’s representative to Russian-occupied Crimea Tamila Tasheva wrote on Facebook on Sept. 22 that Crimean Tatar men have received at least 1,000 mobilization notices on the peninsula.

UK intelligence: Ukraine’s military assault Lyman, secure bridgeheads on east bank of Oskil. Ukraine has secured bridgeheads on the east bank of the Oskil River, which Russian troops tried to integrate into “a consolidated defensive line” after their withdrawals from Kharkiv Oblast, the U.K. Defense Ministry reported on Sept. 23. In Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine’s forces assault the town of Lyman. “Ukraine is now putting pressure on territory Russia considers essential to its war aims,” wrote the ministry.

Ukraine completes exhumation of bodies at mass burial site in liberated Izium. Kharkiv Oblast Governor Oleh Synehubov said that 436 bodies had been exhumed from the graves, mostly with signs of violent death, including 30 bodies with signs of torture. Only 21 people were soldiers, while the rest were civilians, including children. He said that medical experts recorded bodies with ropes around their necks, bound hands, broken limbs, and gunshot injuries. Several men had missing reproductive organs. “All crimes will be documented, and the guilty will pay for what they did,” said Synehubov.

Zelensky rebukes Israel for ‘zero’ military support, slams China’s ‘ambiguous’ position on war. In an interview with Ouest-France, President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Israel “has not given anything” to Ukraine since Russia launched its al-out invasion on Feb. 24. “I am stunned,” he said. “I don’t understand. Why not give us an air defense system?”

Russian torture chambers survivor: ‘Every inch of me was in agony.’ Vitaliy Oliia, 40, was targeted by Russian occupying forces for his past military service in Ukraine and held captive for over a month in two separate locations. Kept in subhuman conditions, Oliia says he was subject to several rounds of unimaginably brutal physical and psychological torture.

The human cost of Russia’s war
Russian attack on Zaporizhzhia kills 1, injures 7. Zaporizhzhia Oblast Governor Oleksandr Starukh reported on Telegram that overnight on Sept. 24 a Russian rocket was fired at a residential area of the city, causing a fire in a multi-story building.

Russia’s attacks kill 2 in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, 7 in Donetsk Oblast. In the past 24 hours, Russian forces have fired 30 projectiles on Nikopol and Marhanets, killing two people and wounding nine, Dnipropetrovsk Oblast Governor Valentyn Reznichenko reported on Sept. 23. Russia has also killed seven and injured 17 civilians in Donetsk Oblast over the past day, said Pavlo Kyrylenko, the oblast governor.

Prosecutor General’s Office: Russia’s war has killed 391 children, injured 771 since February. The largest number of casualties was documented in Donetsk Oblast, where 400 children have been killed or injured, Prosecutor General’s Office reported on Sept. 23. The numbers are not final – they do not include casualties in the Russian-occupied territories and areas where hostilities are still ongoing, the statement reads.
International response
G7 leaders say they will never recognize Russia’s ‘scam’ referendums. In a joint statement, the Group of Seven leaders condemned Russia’s illegal referendums on the annexation of occupied Ukrainian territories. “We will never recognize these referenda, which appear to be a step toward Russian annexation, and we will never recognize purported annexation if it occurs,” the statement reads.

AP: UN rights experts turn up evidence of Russia’s war crimes in Ukraine. A team of experts commissioned by the U.N. Human Rights Council has presented the results of their initial investigation conducted in Kyiv, Chernihiv, Kharkiv, and Sumy oblasts, Associated Press reported on Sept. 23. “We were struck by the large number of executions in the areas that we visited,” said Erik Mose, the commission’s chairman. “The commission is currently investigating such deaths in 16 towns and settlements.”

Washington Post: US warns Russia against using nuclear weapons for months. For several months, U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration has been sending private messages to Moscow about “grave consequences” that would follow Russia’s use of nuclear weapons, The Washington Post reported on Sept. 22, citing unnamed U.S. officials. The Biden administration decided to keep those warnings deliberately vague, “so the Kremlin worries about how Washington might respond,” according to the U.S. media.

Finland to introduce entry visa restrictions for Russians. The decision was made on Sept. 23 by Finnish President Sauli Niinisto and the country’s government. The move is a response to the mobilization and annexation of Ukrainian territories announced by Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. It seeks to prevent “serious damage to Finland’s international position.”

Top EU official calls for suspending Russia from UN Security Council. European Council President Charles Michel said that Russia should be suspended for launching an “unprovoked and unjustified war.” Currently, Russia is among the five permanent member states that have a veto right on the UN Security Council. Michel said that the right to veto should be an exemption but it has become the rule – an apparent reference to Russia’s efforts to block Security Council resolutions.

乌克兰总统 泽连斯基在第77届联大的发言 栖霞满天2 2022-09-24 10:30 发表于辽宁 点击此处查看 向世界上所有珍视民族之间多元而平等、和平与团结的人们问好! 祝你们一切平安! 我要感谢你们,团结一致努力恢复和平,为任何武装侵略受害国确保和平。 现在,有人对乌克兰犯下了罪行,我们要求得到公正的惩罚。这些罪行侵犯了我们的国家边界,这些罪行侵犯了我国人民的生命,这些罪行侵犯了我国人民的尊严。 这些罪行侵犯了使你我成为联合国大家庭的价值观。 乌克兰要求对试图窃取我们领土的行为进行惩罚。对杀害数千人的罪行进行惩罚。对折磨和羞辱男女的罪行进行惩罚。 这是对俄罗斯非法战争引发的灾难性动荡的惩罚,它不仅代表了我们乌克兰人民,也代表了全世界,代表了这个大厅里出席联合国大会的每一个国家。 我正在代表乌克兰讲话。这个国家被迫自卫,但却依然有获得和平的办法。我正在对每一个想知道如何实现和平的人们讲话。 我将提出一个框架,它不仅适用于我们,也适用于任何可能会遭遇与我们类似情况的国家。这是一种惩罚犯罪、保护生命、恢复安全和领土完整、保障安全并提供决心的框架。 和平有五个先决条件。 尊敬的大会主席先生! 尊敬的联合国秘书长! 亲爱的各国元首和政府首脑们! 亲爱的记者! 全世界各国! 乌克兰想要和平!欧洲想要和平,世界需要和平。我们已经看到了谁才是唯一想要战争的人。 在所有联合国会员国中,只有一个国家现在会说——如果他能打断我的话——他对这场战争,对属于他的这场战争感到高兴。但是,我们不会让这个国家凌驾于我们之上,尽管它是世界上规模最大的国家。 乌克兰根据《联合国宪章》第五十一条行使自卫权,在战场上展示了我们的实力。无论是现在或将来,没有人可以质疑我们软弱或无力为我们自己、为我们的独立而战。我们正在取得这场战争的成果,我们看到了这场战争的结局将会是什么,以及和平稳定的保障将会是什么。 《联合国宪章》宣称各国平等——我们证明了乌克兰与各国平等相处。 《联合国宪章》保护国家边界的不可侵犯性——我们通过驱逐外来侵略者来确认我们国家的边界。 《联合国宪章》规定了人权、尊严和生命的价值,我们也追求这些价值——要将乌克兰的每一座城市都从俄罗斯的占领中解放出来。 这场战争不是我们挑起的!从我担任总统之初到今年2月24日,我们以各种形式举行了88轮会谈,以求避免这场战争。但俄罗斯非但没有停止从2014年就开始的侵略罪行,反而将其演变成了全面入侵。我们别无选择,只能自卫。我们只是在自卫,我们只是要把侵略者赶出国际公认的乌克兰国界。 这是我们和平方案的第一项:全面的惩罚。 对侵略罪的惩罚,对侵犯我国边界和领土完整的惩罚。在国际承认的乌克兰边界恢复之前,惩罚必须到位,直到侵略者的攻击停止,直到战争造成的损害和损失得到完全补偿。 因此,对侵略者的制裁是和平方案的一部分;停止与侵略者的贸易和关系是和平方案的一部分。这一切措施就是惩罚。 只要侵略者是国际组织的决策一方,他就必须被这些组织排除——至少在侵略还在持续之前是这样。取消其投票的权利,剥夺其代表团的资格。如果它是联合国安理会成员国,那么就取消其否决权。这是对体制内侵略者的惩罚。 我们不应该对那些为侵略辩护的宣传者睁一只眼闭一只眼,而应该对他们实施一整套个人制裁。这是对说谎者的惩罚。 侵略国的公民不应该被允许在那些珍视和平者的领土上旅游或购物,而应该通过签证限制来鼓励他们对抗自己国家的侵略行为。这是对纵容邪恶者的惩罚。 应该设立一个特别法庭,以惩罚俄罗斯侵略我国的罪行。这将成为一种向所有“潜在”侵略者发出的信号,即它们必须尊重和平,否则就会由世界来要求其承担责任。我们已经为设立这样一个法庭准备了精确的步骤,它们将被提交给所有国家。 乌克兰将呼吁联合国大会支持一套“国际赔偿机制”。我们指望你的支持。俄罗斯应该用自己的资产为这场战争付出代价,这也是一种惩罚。这是对俄罗斯官员最可怕的惩罚之一,他们把钱看得比什么都重要。 和平方案的第二项是保护生命,这是最具体的项目。 现在,当联合国大会正在进行时,在乌克兰哈尔科夫地区的伊久姆镇,挖掘工作仍在进行……这是一个大规模的墓葬,当时该地区正被俄罗斯军队控制。在那里发现了成年男人和女人、儿童,还有平民和士兵的尸体,一共445座坟墓。 有一个家庭在俄罗斯空袭后死在了一所房子的废墟下——包括父亲,母亲以及只有6岁和8岁的两个女孩,还有孩子们的祖父母。有一个人被绳子活活勒死。有一个肋骨骨折的女人,身上有明显伤口。有一个男人在被人杀死之前惨遭阉割,而且这并不是第一起类似案件。 我想问问在座的俄罗斯代表,为什么俄罗斯军队如此痴迷于对人类阉割。他们遭遇了什么,所以他们想这样对待别人? 伊久姆的集体墓葬与世人在布查镇看到的唯一不同之处,就是他们是被埋葬的。俄军在伊久姆驻扎的时间较长,因此被杀害者的尸体最终被人埋葬,而不是散落在街道上。 那么,既然我们明知他们在乌克兰各地进行如此大规模屠杀,我们怎么还能允许俄罗斯军队留在乌克兰领土上的某个地方?我们不能。我们必须保护生命,世界也必须要保护生命。每一个正在遭受武装侵略的国家都需要拥有保护公民和解放领土的机会。 如果它需要武器或炮弹的帮助,世界就应该提供。如果它需要经济上的帮助,世界应该给予帮助。如果因此有必要帮助处理情报数据,那就应该提供。但我们唯一不需要的是谎言。 我们可以把乌克兰国旗归还到我们整个领土,我们可以用武力做到这一点。但我们需要时间。我们试图加快速度,我们努力通过谈判落实《联合国宪章》有关乌克兰问题的基本规定。 但俄罗斯害怕真正的谈判,也不想履行任何公平的国际义务。它对所有人都撒谎,这是侵略者和恐怖分子的典型行为。 即使是现在,当俄罗斯谈论所谓“和谈”时,它真正想的是放慢进攻的速度。俄罗斯希望在被占领的乌克兰领土上过冬,并准备发动新的进攻——新的布查屠杀、新的伊久姆屠杀……至少是想在被占领的土地上准备防御工事,为他们在国内进行军事动员争取时间。 我们不能同意拖延战争,因为它将会比现在的战争更为惨烈。 对我们来说,这是一场生命之战。这就是为什么我们需要国防支持——武器、军事装备和炮弹:进攻性武器、远程武器将足以解放我们的土地,以及防御系统,最重要的是防空系统。我们还需要财政支持,以保持国内稳定,履行对人民的社会义务。 物资和社会保障是任何国家生活的两大要素。因此,我们和平方案的第二项是保护生命。尽一切可能,在联合国宪章允许范围内保护生命。 点击此处查看 我们和平方案的第三项是恢复安全和领土完整。 看看俄罗斯在战争中破坏了多少全球安全要素——海上安全、食品安全、核安全、能源安全和大规模杀伤性武器安全。 我们已经在恢复海上安全和粮食安全——我感谢古特雷斯先生的亲自参与。阿尔及利亚、埃塞俄比亚、埃及、利比亚、肯尼亚、索马里、苏丹、突尼斯、孟加拉国、以色列、印度、伊朗、也门、塞浦路斯、中国、韩国、黎巴嫩、土耳其、比利时、保加利亚、希腊、爱尔兰、西班牙、意大利、荷兰、德国、罗马尼亚和法国,都已经接受了乌克兰的农产品。 我们必须增加海运的供应。无论是在市场条件下,还是在联合国粮食计划署的框架内,乌克兰都是可靠的合作伙伴。 顺便说一下,尽管战争造成了我们自身面临困难,我们还是决定向埃塞俄比亚和索马里提供人道主义援助,因此我们将额外向他们免费运送小麦。 但如果是其他安全因素,就比较困难了。 在联合国大会召开前夕,俄罗斯向乌克兰南部的核电站发射了导弹。爆炸波及了电站的建筑,窗户被打碎,墙壁被损坏。导弹爆炸的位置距离核反应堆只有300米! 在此之前,国际原子能机构明确呼吁俄罗斯停止针对乌克兰任何核设施的任何敌对活动,特别是针对欧洲最大的核电站扎波罗热核电站,俄罗斯已经将这座核电站变成了攻击目标。这意味着让你们所有国家都成为了袭击目标。俄罗斯的核辐射勒索应该引起你们每一个国家的关注,因为你们谁也找不到预防辐射病的疫苗。 生活成本危机在数十个国家持续,其根源是能源市场的不稳定。有必要消除全球价格动荡的主要因素,即俄罗斯的能源讹诈。有必要限制俄罗斯出口能源的价格。有必要让俄罗斯的石油和天然气重新成为普通商品,而不是俄罗斯的能源武器。这就是为什么它能操纵市场,使电力、天然气、汽油和柴油成为少数人的特权,而不是所有人都能得到的公共产品。 限制价格其实是在保护世界,这是恢复能源和价格安全的重要途径。但世界会接受它吗,还是会害怕它?世界会害怕俄罗斯的威胁吗?我们有必要采取强有力的一步,之后一切都会开始变得明朗起来。是时候这样做了。 计划的这一项计划将为以下这一切做出妥善处理。在俄罗斯导弹恐怖事件之后,在大屠杀之后;在马里乌波尔,在奥列尼夫卡,俄罗斯焚烧乌克兰囚犯之后;在封锁港口之后,在俄罗斯坦克和导弹袭击核电站之后;在威胁使用核武器之后——这已成为俄罗斯宣传者的常态,而非例外…… 在所有这一切之后,我们必须最终认定俄罗斯是支持恐怖主义的国家。在所有层面上,所有承认和平和保护人类生命价值的国家,在法律上,在政治上给予认定。 如果你没有相应的法律机制,你也可以在议会中做出政治决定。这是恢复全球安全的基础。如果采取了这一强有力的步骤,是否采取其他重要步骤的疑虑就会消失。 最为敏感的问题是边界和领土完整。当一个国家敢于窃取另一个国家的领土时,世界上所有的国家都将可能受到攻击。如果不恢复遭受武装侵略国家的领土完整,就无法恢复全球安全。 因此,乌克兰和平方案的第三项是恢复安全和领土完整。第四项是安全保障。每个国家都有权得到安全保障。不仅仅是最大的国家,不仅仅是那些最幸运的国家。 我们提出了升级“乌克兰、欧洲和世界安全架构”的建议,这将会杜绝任何针对我们的侵略。我们已经将它们展示给所有合作伙伴。 关于具有法律约束力的多边和双边条约的建议,包含了保障国必须采取行动的条件,以及行动完成目标的时间表——无论在陆地、海上和空中,以及在外交和政治,经济和金融,武器供应和情报方面的目标。你们每个国家都将收到我们和平方案的完整资料,还将看到我们为安全保证提供的细节。 我不想将我们的提议与目前地球上存在的任何联盟进行比较。我想强调的是,预防性地保障一个国家的安全,总比在战争开始后才予以制止要好得多。 乌克兰和平方案的第五项是决心,如果没有它,其他四项就无法开展。 这包括我们坚持战斗的决心,还包括合作伙伴帮助我们的决心,他们自己的决心,以及全世界团结在反对武力侵略的国家周围的决心,呼吁正在对世界制造威胁的一方立即恢复秩序的决心。 至此,我们的框架中包含的所有五项: 惩罚侵略; 保护生命; 恢复安全和领土完整; 安全保障; 保护自己的决心。 这是俄罗斯早已熟知的框架,这是俄罗斯——以及其他潜在的侵略者——需要学习的正义、法律和秩序的框架。 还有什么没有被我们的框架所包含?中立。 当人类的价值与和平受到攻击时,那些说“中立”的人其实另有所指。他们谈论的其实是冷漠——每个人都只为自己着想,这就是他们真正的意思。他们假装关注别人的问题,他们在表面上互相支持,他们只在礼节上表示同情。这就是为什么,他们假装要保护某个国家,但实际上他们只保护自己的既得利益。这种立场其实为战争创造了条件。这种立场需要给予纠正,才能为和平创造条件。 你们所需要做的,只有:决心。 有很多关于改革联合国的讨论。而这些讨论又是如何销声匿迹的?没有任何结果。 如果你仔细观察我们的和平方案,你就会看到,它的执行过程,事实上已经成为对联合国的改革。我们的框架是普遍的,它把世界的南北联系在一起;它呼吁世界上的大多数人,并鼓励为那些仍然被忽视的人扩大代表性。 当非洲、拉丁美洲、大多数亚洲国家、中欧和东欧被迫遵守着它们从未拥有过的否决权时,这是一种不平等。这就是我们乌克兰所要谈论的。你从俄罗斯那里听到过这样的话吗?它是安理会常任理事国,只是出于某些历史原因。为什么不是日本或巴西,不是土耳其或印度,不是德国或乌克兰?总有一天,这个问题会得到解决。 至于乌克兰和俄罗斯之间的会谈。 也许你碰巧听到了俄罗斯对于会谈的另一种说法——似乎他们已经准备好和平会谈了。但是,他们一边谈论和平会谈,一边却在宣布军事动员。他们一边谈论和平会谈,一边却在宣布在乌克兰被占领土上举行伪公投。 什么是真实的呢?俄罗斯的军事动员是真实的,伪公投也是事实。俄罗斯希望战争,这是真实的。但俄罗斯无法阻止历史的进程。人类社会和国际法比一个恐怖主义国家更为强大。俄罗斯终将被迫结束这场战争,即使战争已经开始了。 我们排除一切与“乌克兰和平方案”不同基础上达成和解的可能性。俄罗斯的恐怖活动越深入,世界上就越不可能有人同意与他们坐在一张桌子上。 如果在我的讲话之后,又发生新的俄罗斯导弹和恐怖主义行动,那只能证明俄罗斯的软弱。他们无法战胜我们,无法战胜整个世界。那只会证明“乌克兰和平方案”中的5个项目必须尽快得以实行。 我们为和平做好了准备。真正的、诚实的、公正的和平。这就是为什么全世界都站在我们这边。 本次演讲的最后。 我要感谢投票赞成我这次视频演讲的101个国家。这不仅仅是一场关于演讲方式的投票,这是关于原则的投票。只有7个国家投了反对票:白俄罗斯、古巴、朝鲜、厄立特里亚、尼加拉瓜、俄罗斯和叙利亚。 七个,七个国家竟然害怕一个视频网址,七个用红色按钮对原则做出回应的国家,只有7个。 101对7。 我的朋友们!如果这个小小团伙违背了我们大家的意志,那么我要恭喜你们。因为这意味着和平将战胜任何侵略,我们执行和平方案不存在任何障碍。 感谢你们的关注! 再一次祝你们平安! 荣耀归于乌克兰!

向世界上所有珍视民族之间多元而平等、和平与团结的人们问好!
祝你们一切平安!
我要感谢你们,团结一致努力恢复和平,为任何武装侵略受害国确保和平。
现在,有人对乌克兰犯下了罪行,我们要求得到公正的惩罚。这些罪行侵犯了我们的国家边界,这些罪行侵犯了我国人民的生命,这些罪行侵犯了我国人民的尊严。
这些罪行侵犯了使你我成为联合国大家庭的价值观。
乌克兰要求对试图窃取我们领土的行为进行惩罚。对杀害数千人的罪行进行惩罚。对折磨和羞辱男女的罪行进行惩罚。
这是对俄罗斯非法战争引发的灾难性动荡的惩罚,它不仅代表了我们乌克兰人民,也代表了全世界,代表了这个大厅里出席联合国大会的每一个国家。
我正在代表乌克兰讲话。这个国家被迫自卫,但却依然有获得和平的办法。我正在对每一个想知道如何实现和平的人们讲话。
我将提出一个框架,它不仅适用于我们,也适用于任何可能会遭遇与我们类似情况的国家。这是一种惩罚犯罪、保护生命、恢复安全和领土完整、保障安全并提供决心的框架。
和平有五个先决条件。
尊敬的大会主席先生!
尊敬的联合国秘书长!
亲爱的各国元首和政府首脑们!
亲爱的记者!
全世界各国!
乌克兰想要和平!欧洲想要和平,世界需要和平。我们已经看到了谁才是唯一想要战争的人。

在所有联合国会员国中,只有一个国家现在会说——如果他能打断我的话——他对这场战争,对属于他的这场战争感到高兴。但是,我们不会让这个国家凌驾于我们之上,尽管它是世界上规模最大的国家。
乌克兰根据《联合国宪章》第五十一条行使自卫权,在战场上展示了我们的实力。无论是现在或将来,没有人可以质疑我们软弱或无力为我们自己、为我们的独立而战。我们正在取得这场战争的成果,我们看到了这场战争的结局将会是什么,以及和平稳定的保障将会是什么。
《联合国宪章》宣称各国平等——我们证明了乌克兰与各国平等相处。
《联合国宪章》保护国家边界的不可侵犯性——我们通过驱逐外来侵略者来确认我们国家的边界。
《联合国宪章》规定了人权、尊严和生命的价值,我们也追求这些价值——要将乌克兰的每一座城市都从俄罗斯的占领中解放出来。
这场战争不是我们挑起的!从我担任总统之初到今年2月24日,我们以各种形式举行了88轮会谈,以求避免这场战争。但俄罗斯非但没有停止从2014年就开始的侵略罪行,反而将其演变成了全面入侵。我们别无选择,只能自卫。我们只是在自卫,我们只是要把侵略者赶出国际公认的乌克兰国界。
这是我们和平方案的第一项:全面的惩罚。
对侵略罪的惩罚,对侵犯我国边界和领土完整的惩罚。在国际承认的乌克兰边界恢复之前,惩罚必须到位,直到侵略者的攻击停止,直到战争造成的损害和损失得到完全补偿。
因此,对侵略者的制裁是和平方案的一部分;停止与侵略者的贸易和关系是和平方案的一部分。这一切措施就是惩罚。
只要侵略者是国际组织的决策一方,他就必须被这些组织排除——至少在侵略还在持续之前是这样。取消其投票的权利,剥夺其代表团的资格。如果它是联合国安理会成员国,那么就取消其否决权。这是对体制内侵略者的惩罚。
我们不应该对那些为侵略辩护的宣传者睁一只眼闭一只眼,而应该对他们实施一整套个人制裁。这是对说谎者的惩罚。
侵略国的公民不应该被允许在那些珍视和平者的领土上旅游或购物,而应该通过签证限制来鼓励他们对抗自己国家的侵略行为。这是对纵容邪恶者的惩罚。
应该设立一个特别法庭,以惩罚俄罗斯侵略我国的罪行。这将成为一种向所有“潜在”侵略者发出的信号,即它们必须尊重和平,否则就会由世界来要求其承担责任。我们已经为设立这样一个法庭准备了精确的步骤,它们将被提交给所有国家。
乌克兰将呼吁联合国大会支持一套“国际赔偿机制”。我们指望你的支持。俄罗斯应该用自己的资产为这场战争付出代价,这也是一种惩罚。这是对俄罗斯官员最可怕的惩罚之一,他们把钱看得比什么都重要。
和平方案的第二项是保护生命,这是最具体的项目。
现在,当联合国大会正在进行时,在乌克兰哈尔科夫地区的伊久姆镇,挖掘工作仍在进行……这是一个大规模的墓葬,当时该地区正被俄罗斯军队控制。在那里发现了成年男人和女人、儿童,还有平民和士兵的尸体,一共445座坟墓。
有一个家庭在俄罗斯空袭后死在了一所房子的废墟下——包括父亲,母亲以及只有6岁和8岁的两个女孩,还有孩子们的祖父母。有一个人被绳子活活勒死。有一个肋骨骨折的女人,身上有明显伤口。有一个男人在被人杀死之前惨遭阉割,而且这并不是第一起类似案件。
我想问问在座的俄罗斯代表,为什么俄罗斯军队如此痴迷于对人类阉割。他们遭遇了什么,所以他们想这样对待别人?
伊久姆的集体墓葬与世人在布查镇看到的唯一不同之处,就是他们是被埋葬的。俄军在伊久姆驻扎的时间较长,因此被杀害者的尸体最终被人埋葬,而不是散落在街道上。
那么,既然我们明知他们在乌克兰各地进行如此大规模屠杀,我们怎么还能允许俄罗斯军队留在乌克兰领土上的某个地方?我们不能。我们必须保护生命,世界也必须要保护生命。每一个正在遭受武装侵略的国家都需要拥有保护公民和解放领土的机会。
如果它需要武器或炮弹的帮助,世界就应该提供。如果它需要经济上的帮助,世界应该给予帮助。如果因此有必要帮助处理情报数据,那就应该提供。但我们唯一不需要的是谎言。
我们可以把乌克兰国旗归还到我们整个领土,我们可以用武力做到这一点。但我们需要时间。我们试图加快速度,我们努力通过谈判落实《联合国宪章》有关乌克兰问题的基本规定。
但俄罗斯害怕真正的谈判,也不想履行任何公平的国际义务。它对所有人都撒谎,这是侵略者和恐怖分子的典型行为。
即使是现在,当俄罗斯谈论所谓“和谈”时,它真正想的是放慢进攻的速度。俄罗斯希望在被占领的乌克兰领土上过冬,并准备发动新的进攻——新的布查屠杀、新的伊久姆屠杀……至少是想在被占领的土地上准备防御工事,为他们在国内进行军事动员争取时间。
我们不能同意拖延战争,因为它将会比现在的战争更为惨烈。
对我们来说,这是一场生命之战。这就是为什么我们需要国防支持——武器、军事装备和炮弹:进攻性武器、远程武器将足以解放我们的土地,以及防御系统,最重要的是防空系统。我们还需要财政支持,以保持国内稳定,履行对人民的社会义务。
物资和社会保障是任何国家生活的两大要素。因此,我们和平方案的第二项是保护生命。尽一切可能,在联合国宪章允许范围内保护生命。

我们和平方案的第三项是恢复安全和领土完整。
看看俄罗斯在战争中破坏了多少全球安全要素——海上安全、食品安全、核安全、能源安全和大规模杀伤性武器安全。
我们已经在恢复海上安全和粮食安全——我感谢古特雷斯先生的亲自参与。阿尔及利亚、埃塞俄比亚、埃及、利比亚、肯尼亚、索马里、苏丹、突尼斯、孟加拉国、以色列、印度、伊朗、也门、塞浦路斯、中国、韩国、黎巴嫩、土耳其、比利时、保加利亚、希腊、爱尔兰、西班牙、意大利、荷兰、德国、罗马尼亚和法国,都已经接受了乌克兰的农产品。
我们必须增加海运的供应。无论是在市场条件下,还是在联合国粮食计划署的框架内,乌克兰都是可靠的合作伙伴。
顺便说一下,尽管战争造成了我们自身面临困难,我们还是决定向埃塞俄比亚和索马里提供人道主义援助,因此我们将额外向他们免费运送小麦。
但如果是其他安全因素,就比较困难了。
在联合国大会召开前夕,俄罗斯向乌克兰南部的核电站发射了导弹。爆炸波及了电站的建筑,窗户被打碎,墙壁被损坏。导弹爆炸的位置距离核反应堆只有300米!
在此之前,国际原子能机构明确呼吁俄罗斯停止针对乌克兰任何核设施的任何敌对活动,特别是针对欧洲最大的核电站扎波罗热核电站,俄罗斯已经将这座核电站变成了攻击目标。这意味着让你们所有国家都成为了袭击目标。俄罗斯的核辐射勒索应该引起你们每一个国家的关注,因为你们谁也找不到预防辐射病的疫苗。
生活成本危机在数十个国家持续,其根源是能源市场的不稳定。有必要消除全球价格动荡的主要因素,即俄罗斯的能源讹诈。有必要限制俄罗斯出口能源的价格。有必要让俄罗斯的石油和天然气重新成为普通商品,而不是俄罗斯的能源武器。这就是为什么它能操纵市场,使电力、天然气、汽油和柴油成为少数人的特权,而不是所有人都能得到的公共产品。
限制价格其实是在保护世界,这是恢复能源和价格安全的重要途径。但世界会接受它吗,还是会害怕它?世界会害怕俄罗斯的威胁吗?我们有必要采取强有力的一步,之后一切都会开始变得明朗起来。是时候这样做了。
计划的这一项计划将为以下这一切做出妥善处理。在俄罗斯导弹恐怖事件之后,在大屠杀之后;在马里乌波尔,在奥列尼夫卡,俄罗斯焚烧乌克兰囚犯之后;在封锁港口之后,在俄罗斯坦克和导弹袭击核电站之后;在威胁使用核武器之后——这已成为俄罗斯宣传者的常态,而非例外……
在所有这一切之后,我们必须最终认定俄罗斯是支持恐怖主义的国家。在所有层面上,所有承认和平和保护人类生命价值的国家,在法律上,在政治上给予认定。
如果你没有相应的法律机制,你也可以在议会中做出政治决定。这是恢复全球安全的基础。如果采取了这一强有力的步骤,是否采取其他重要步骤的疑虑就会消失。
最为敏感的问题是边界和领土完整。当一个国家敢于窃取另一个国家的领土时,世界上所有的国家都将可能受到攻击。如果不恢复遭受武装侵略国家的领土完整,就无法恢复全球安全。
因此,乌克兰和平方案的第三项是恢复安全和领土完整。第四项是安全保障。每个国家都有权得到安全保障。不仅仅是最大的国家,不仅仅是那些最幸运的国家。
我们提出了升级“乌克兰、欧洲和世界安全架构”的建议,这将会杜绝任何针对我们的侵略。我们已经将它们展示给所有合作伙伴。
关于具有法律约束力的多边和双边条约的建议,包含了保障国必须采取行动的条件,以及行动完成目标的时间表——无论在陆地、海上和空中,以及在外交和政治,经济和金融,武器供应和情报方面的目标。你们每个国家都将收到我们和平方案的完整资料,还将看到我们为安全保证提供的细节。
我不想将我们的提议与目前地球上存在的任何联盟进行比较。我想强调的是,预防性地保障一个国家的安全,总比在战争开始后才予以制止要好得多。
乌克兰和平方案的第五项是决心,如果没有它,其他四项就无法开展。
这包括我们坚持战斗的决心,还包括合作伙伴帮助我们的决心,他们自己的决心,以及全世界团结在反对武力侵略的国家周围的决心,呼吁正在对世界制造威胁的一方立即恢复秩序的决心。
至此,我们的框架中包含的所有五项:
惩罚侵略;
保护生命;
恢复安全和领土完整;
安全保障;
保护自己的决心。
这是俄罗斯早已熟知的框架,这是俄罗斯——以及其他潜在的侵略者——需要学习的正义、法律和秩序的框架。

还有什么没有被我们的框架所包含?中立。
当人类的价值与和平受到攻击时,那些说“中立”的人其实另有所指。他们谈论的其实是冷漠——每个人都只为自己着想,这就是他们真正的意思。他们假装关注别人的问题,他们在表面上互相支持,他们只在礼节上表示同情。这就是为什么,他们假装要保护某个国家,但实际上他们只保护自己的既得利益。这种立场其实为战争创造了条件。这种立场需要给予纠正,才能为和平创造条件。
你们所需要做的,只有:决心。
有很多关于改革联合国的讨论。而这些讨论又是如何销声匿迹的?没有任何结果。
如果你仔细观察我们的和平方案,你就会看到,它的执行过程,事实上已经成为对联合国的改革。我们的框架是普遍的,它把世界的南北联系在一起;它呼吁世界上的大多数人,并鼓励为那些仍然被忽视的人扩大代表性。
当非洲、拉丁美洲、大多数亚洲国家、中欧和东欧被迫遵守着它们从未拥有过的否决权时,这是一种不平等。这就是我们乌克兰所要谈论的。你从俄罗斯那里听到过这样的话吗?它是安理会常任理事国,只是出于某些历史原因。为什么不是日本或巴西,不是土耳其或印度,不是德国或乌克兰?总有一天,这个问题会得到解决。
至于乌克兰和俄罗斯之间的会谈。
也许你碰巧听到了俄罗斯对于会谈的另一种说法——似乎他们已经准备好和平会谈了。但是,他们一边谈论和平会谈,一边却在宣布军事动员。他们一边谈论和平会谈,一边却在宣布在乌克兰被占领土上举行伪公投。
什么是真实的呢?俄罗斯的军事动员是真实的,伪公投也是事实。俄罗斯希望战争,这是真实的。但俄罗斯无法阻止历史的进程。人类社会和国际法比一个恐怖主义国家更为强大。俄罗斯终将被迫结束这场战争,即使战争已经开始了。
我们排除一切与“乌克兰和平方案”不同基础上达成和解的可能性。俄罗斯的恐怖活动越深入,世界上就越不可能有人同意与他们坐在一张桌子上。
如果在我的讲话之后,又发生新的俄罗斯导弹和恐怖主义行动,那只能证明俄罗斯的软弱。他们无法战胜我们,无法战胜整个世界。那只会证明“乌克兰和平方案”中的5个项目必须尽快得以实行。
我们为和平做好了准备。真正的、诚实的、公正的和平。这就是为什么全世界都站在我们这边。
本次演讲的最后。
我要感谢投票赞成我这次视频演讲的101个国家。这不仅仅是一场关于演讲方式的投票,这是关于原则的投票。只有7个国家投了反对票:白俄罗斯、古巴、朝鲜、厄立特里亚、尼加拉瓜、俄罗斯和叙利亚。
七个,七个国家竟然害怕一个视频网址,七个用红色按钮对原则做出回应的国家,只有7个。
101对7。
我的朋友们!如果这个小小团伙违背了我们大家的意志,那么我要恭喜你们。因为这意味着和平将战胜任何侵略,我们执行和平方案不存在任何障碍。
感谢你们的关注!
再一次祝你们平安!
荣耀归于乌克兰!
