Vladimir Zelensky called for UN reform
According to Zelensky, the UN is at a dead end because of Russia’s aggression – humanity no longer trusts the UN when it comes to protecting the sovereign borders of nations. He noted that the UN Security Council needs urgent reform. In particular, the UN General Assembly should be given the opportunity to overcome the right of veto, urged the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky in his speech at a meeting of the UN Security Council. The president noted that the second necessary step on the path to reorganization is that the UN Security Council should be fully accountable to the nations of the world. He emphasized that the Security Council should include the African Union, Latin America and the states of the Pacific Ocean. The third step of the reform, the leader of Ukraine emphasized, should be a system for preventing aggression due to early response to actions directed against the territorial integrity and sovereignty of states.

The fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh has stopped
Azerbaijan has stopped taking “anti-terrorist measures” in Nagorno-Karabakh. Baku reported that the “formation of the Armenian armed forces” located in the Karabakh region laid down their weapons, abandoned combat positions and military posts and completely disarmed. The Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan confirmed a meeting with Armenians in the country’s Karabakh region on September 21 in Yevlas to discuss reunification issues.

As a result of clashes near the government building in Yerevan, according to preliminary data, 34 people were injured, of which 16 were policemen, 18 were civilians.
The Polish Foreign Ministry summoned the Ukrainian Ambassador
The Ukrainian ambassador was summoned to the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs because of Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky’s speech at the UN, where he complained about the grain embargo of individual EU countries. The Polish Foreign Ministry said that public pressure in international forums and claims to international tribunals are not suitable means for resolving disputes between Poland and Ukraine and will not be effective. Poland believes that the Ukrainian authorities impose a “one-sided view of the multidimensional problem” of the export of Ukrainian agricultural products to neighboring countries.
In this regard, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine called on the Polish side to put aside emotions and move the dialogue on the export of agricultural products in a constructive direction.
Later, Polish Agriculture Minister Robert Telus said he was ready to talk with the Ukrainian side. Telus emphasized that the Polish side is ready to find a solution to the problem related to Ukrainian grain.
