Russia is always involved in conflicts that break out in the world. This is also true for Latin American countries, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy says in an interview with Latin American media.

During his visit to Buenos Aires, the Head of State gave an interview to representatives of the Latin American media. He said that Ukraine is interested in Argentina playing a key role in the peace formula.

"I am very interested in uniting Latin America around Ukraine. For us, this is uniting around the truth. I am interested in the Ukraine-Latin America summit. And here I would like Javier Milei to help us in activating and organizing such a platform," the President said.

According to Zelenskyy, Ukraine and Argentina can work in the areas of security, digitalization, energy, and trade. But the security issue remains number one.

The Ukrainian President also stated that Russia was always directly or indirectly involved in the conflicts that were erupting in different parts of the world. In particular, the security issue is also relevant to Latin America.

Zelenskyy also explained that he had chosen Argentina as the first country to visit because he saw the new president's clear position on Ukraine. In addition, Argentina is one of the largest countries in the region, so it is looked up to as a leader.
