Zelensky’s Global Diplomacy at Davos Summit

Zelensky’s Global Diplomacy seeks to put Ukraine at the top of global agenda at Davos summit

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy urged political and business leaders to provide more military aid to Ukraine at the World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, on Tuesday (January 16), saying that otherwise Russia may attack other countries. Kyiv fears the war in Ukraine is slipping from the top of the global agenda.

Zelensky’s call

Zelensky’s Global Diplomacy: With attention focused on conflict in the Middle East and Houthi attacks on commercial shipping in the Red Sea, Zelensky used the stage in Davos to remind the world what’s at stake in Ukraine’s war with Russian invaders.

“If anyone thinks that this is only about us, that this is only about Ukraine, they are dead wrong. The possible directions, and even the timetable, for renewed Russian aggression outside Ukraine are becoming increasingly apparent… If Putin must be fought together for years to come, wouldn’t it be better to end Putin and his war strategy now? And our brave men and women are already doing that,” Zelensky said (Zelensky’s Global Diplomacy).

Air superiority

Zelensky’s global diplomacy and speech drew applause from the delegates. But Ukraine seeks more than the approval of its allies.

“We have to win air superiority for Ukraine, just like we gained superiority in the Black Sea. We can do it,” Zelensky said. “Partners know what is needed and how much is needed. And that will enable progress on the ground.” The

Zelensky’s global diplomacy: The Ukrainian president also urged the West to tighten sanctions on Moscow.

“Using frozen Russian assets to defend Russia from war and rebuild Ukraine must be a strong decision this year. Putin loves money most. He and his oligarchs, friends and associates have lost billions of dollars, They have lost The more, the more likely he is to regret starting this war,” Zelensky told delegates in Davos (Zelensky’s global diplomacy).

Moscow did not immediately respond to Zelensky’s comments. After the Russian army suffered huge losses in Ukraine, Russia invested heavily in rearming its troops; Kiev said Ukraine urgently needed new weapons and ammunition.

U.S. Military Aid

Zelensky’s global diplomacy: Republican members of the U.S. Congress are blocking an emergency spending bill that would include about $50 billion in security aid to Ukraine, insisting it must be tied to concessions on U.S. border security spending.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said U.S. support was “enduring” during a bilateral meeting with Zelensky in Davos on Tuesday.

“We are determined to maintain our support for Ukraine, and we are working closely with Congress to achieve that goal. I know our colleagues in Europe are doing the same. So even if you are militarily successful in resisting the Russian attack, you also need to build a Ukraine for the future—a Ukraine that can be self-reliant militarily, economically, and democratically,” Blinken said.

Hungary’s veto power

The EU’s $54 billion aid plan for Ukraine was also blocked by Hungary. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said the EU may seek to exclude Hungary from the vote at next month’s summit.

“My personal priority is to reach an agreement with 27 EU member states. If this is not possible, we are ready to reach an agreement with 26 member states. But I strongly support and hope for an agreement with 27 member states,” von der Leyen said on Tuesday.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said he wants any aid package for Ukraine to be separate from regular EU spending. “We want to provide financial assistance to Ukraine outside the EU budget. That is why we want to discuss the budget amendment and aid to Ukraine separately. In the end, the financial resources that the respective countries should receive may flow to Ukraine,” Orban said on Tuesday at a press conference in Budapest.

With Western unity wavering, Latvia, a close ally of Ukraine, said it was time to change its narrative.

“We always hear that we will support Ukraine as long as necessary. I think we have to change the rhetoric that we will support Ukraine—that we will support Ukraine until victory—and the victory of Ukraine statement,” Latvian President Edgars Rinkevics told reporters in Davos.
