Ukraine’s ambassador to UN: “We must be patient and remain resilient.”

Lisbon, Sep 1 (EFE).- The Ukrainian ambassador to the UN, Sergiy Kyslytsya, rejected Friday criticism about the speed of the Ukrainian counteroffensive.

The ambassador stressed “We must be patient and remain resilient” against Russian troops, he said during a speech at the Estoril Conferences, held some 25 kilometers from Lisbon.

He also considered that the war conflict is now entering a new phase.

Kyslytsya assured that Ukraine an the rest of the world want the war to end “as soon as possible” but reminded that “what is happening is not a Hollywood movie or a video game.”

“It is a real war and a real tragedy”, while assuring the biggest concern of Ukrainian President Volodymir Zelensky and his government is to win with as little human loss as possible.

“We will win; Putin cannot win,” he concluded.

The Ukrainian representative to the United Nations also considered that in Putin’s mind the more he attacked Ukraine, the more willing they would be to “sit down and discuss territorial concessions.”

However, he stressed that “it’s the opposite. The more we suffer, the more resilient we are”.

The Estoril Conferences, a forum that gathers international figures from fields such as politics or business annually, celebrate this Friday and Saturday, their 8th edition, with the motto “Rehumanizing our world.” EFE
