Pro-Kremlin officials cast pro-independence votes in Ukraine

Sources say Ukrainian FM is trying to boost support for Ukraine while at the UN

During his meetings with his counterparts on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba is focusing on the global consequences of the energy and food crisis in Ukraine, according to UN diplomats familiar with the matter.

Kuleba is doing so with a specific goal: to try to maintain unity among countries that support Ukraine while acknowledging the effects the war is having on their country, diplomats said.

While the devastation is overwhelming in Ukraine, Ukrainian government officials hope that highlighting the impact of the war outside Ukraine’s borders will spur continued support for Ukraine against Russian aggression.

The food crisis is a central effect felt around the world, with Ukrainians pressing to maintain and expand the current grain deal, diplomats said.

Kuleba also plans to personally humiliate the leaders of countries that receive cheap oil from Russia, saying they are profiting from Ukraine’s suffering, a diplomatic official said.
Meanwhile, U.S. and European officials are hoping to increase continued support for Ukraine this week.

There are a few factors that contribute to that expectation. First, Ukraine’s advances on the battlefield have turned the tide in its favor, because it will not look good if countries stop supporting Ukraine when it wins. Second, officials explained that comments by Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian President Narendra Modi last week provide new impetus to sustain support for Ukraine.

Some background: Last week, Modi told Putin that “the current era is not war,” a striking rebuke from a leader who has remained largely silent throughout the conflict, which has raged for more than six months.
