Mykhaylo Podolyak, a senior aide to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, “Missile strikes in the downtown of Kyiv during the official visit of @antonioguterres. The day before he was sitting at a long table in the Kremlin, and today explosions are above his head. Postcard from Moscow? Recall why 🇷🇺 still takes a seat on the UN Security Council?”
