Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine president has reacted to an internal United Nations email advising staff not to refer to the Russian attack of Ukraine as a “war.”

 

Ukraine president said he knows that Ukrainians and others who are not in support of what is going on in Ukraine were angered by the said email sent.

 

UN spokesperson, Stephan Dujarric, said that an unnamed regional office should not have issued a memo warning staff to not use the words “war” or “invasion”.

 

According to the Stephan Dujarric, there are no official instructions on which word to use in describing the situation.

 

Zelensky said via Telegram on Tuesday: “You may have seen in the news today the story that the United Nations allegedly does not consider the Russian invasion a war. I know this outraged many, and not only in Ukraine.”

 

“There will be no playing along with the aggressor. The word “war” will be heard on this site. Because that is the sincere truth. We will not allow anyone in the world to ignore the murder and suffering of our people, our children,” he added.
