President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky “has gotten everyone,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on the air of the “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin”, writes TASS.
“He [Зеленский] got everyone, of course,” Lavrov said, quoting a statement by Romanian senator Diana Soshoaca with a call to prevent the Ukrainian president from speaking in the Romanian parliament.
On October 10, the media wrote that the Romanian parliament canceled the meeting at which Zelensky was supposed to speak. During his visit to Bucharest, the Ukrainian leader held talks with Romanian Foreign Minister Luminica Odobescu, President Klaus Iohannis and others.
Zelensky made his second visit to the United States after the start of the Russian special operation from September 18 to 22. How wrote “Vedomosti”, a striking difference between Zelensky’s current visit and last year’s in December 2022 was that now he was unable to speak before Congress.
Then the opportunity to speak at a joint session of the US Parliament was blocked by the now former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Republican Kevin McCarthy. He explained this by the “busy schedule” of congressmen.
