Zelensky is basically proposing a worldwide association more powerful than NATO or the UN

to respond both to aggression by rogue nations and to natural disasters.

Good for him.

Editing to add that he emphasizes the need for a QUICK response.

Editing again to add four paragraphs of Zelensky's speech from the transcript at Quartz.com:


We have to defend the world. We already became part of the antiwar coalition, the big antiwar coalition that unites many countries, dozens of countries, those who reacted to president Putinís decision to invade our country. We need to move on and do more. We need to create more tools to respond quickly and stop the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, which began on February 24. It would be fair if it ended in 24 hours, that people would be punished, that evil would be punished.

Today the people do not have such tools. Institutions should protect us from war but they unfortunately do not work. We need new alliances and we offer them. We propose to create an association, united for peace, a union of responsible countries to stop conflict immediately, provide all the necessary assistance in 24 hours, weapons if necessary, sanctions if necessary, humanitarian support, finances, everything you need to keep the peace and quickly to save the world, to save life.

Such associations would provide assistance to those who are experiencing natural disasters, who fell victim to humanitarian crisis or epidemics. Remember how difficult it was for the world to do the simplest things just to get a vaccine against covid to save lives, to prevent new strains. The world spent months, years doing things like that much faster to make sure there are no victims.

Ladies and gentlemen, if such an alliance would exist today we would be able to save thousands of lives in our country, in many countries around the world, those who need peace, those who suffer inhumane destruction. I ask you to watch one video. a video of what the Russian troops did in our country, in our land. We have to destroy every single aggressor who seeks to subjugate other nations. Please watch the video.

Biden to announce $1B in Ukraine military aid: report

Source: The Hill

President Biden is expected to announce more than $1 billion in Ukraine military aid from the $13.6 billion in aid that was passed by Congress, U.S. officials told The Wall Street Journal.

The U.S. will be providing antiarmor and antiair systems to Ukraine with the $1.01 billion taken from the more than $13 billion package.

The systems will include air defenses such as Javelins and Stingers that the U.S. says Ukraine needs, according to the Journal.

Biden could reportedly announce the aid as soon as Wednesday, as fighting intensifies between Russia and Ukraine.

I'm using The Hill's story because of the WSJ's paywall.

But this is the link to the WSJ article:
