Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called for reforming the United Nations Security Council during an address to the body Wednesday, urging it to suspend the veto power Russia has used to deadlock the council in responding to the Kremlin’s war against Kyiv.
Veto power applies to the five permanent members of the Security Council, including Russia. The Kremlin’s U.N. ambassador has used the power to reject any resolution that seeks to condemn Moscow or impose costs for its invasion of Ukraine — from its 2014 invasion of eastern Ukraine and annexation of Crimea to its full-scale invasion in February 2022.
But while he was talking about politics the camera caught his wife’s middle finger and people had some questions!
Social media users joked that this could be only done by the mobsters in the UN.
Here’s what was reported in Ukraine however.
President’s wife Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky Elena probably suffered a finger injury during a visit to USA to the meeting UN General Assembly. This was stated by the Ukrainian publication “Strana.ua”.
The assumption appeared after the publication of photographs from the meeting, which show that Elena Zelenskaya has a bandaged middle finger on her right hand. “The footage was taken on the second day of the Zelensky couple’s visit to the United States. On the day of her arrival, the first lady of Ukraine did not have a bandage on her arm,” the publication noted.
Previously in the US appreciated the likelihood of Zelensky’s resignation, adding that the next military aid package Kyiv may be the last. The problem is that the US and some of its partners NATO do not approve of Kyiv’s military tactics, which lead to large losses of people and weapons.
