“We call on partner countries to sign a multilateral agreement and create a mechanism that ensures that all those who have suffered the Russian actions can receive compensation for all the losses they have suffered,” he said in a video speech.

“That would be fair. And Russia will feel the weight of every missile, every bomb, every bullet that fired at us,” he said.

Zelenskyy said Russia should be forced to pay for every home, school, hospital and business it destroys.

On Saturday, Zelenskyy said the United Nations and the International Committee of the Red Cross headed Russian President Vladimir Putin to remove his “mountain of corpses” from Ukraine.


“They have abandoned their army,” Zelenskyy said in an interview with Ukrainian news. “They were dying, but they didn’t care. I was recently told that they are only now thinking of taking the corpses.

“When the war started … they pretended there were no bodies,” he added. “The UN and the Red Cross said: take these bags away. Mountains of corpses of their soldiers.”

The Russian invasion of Ukraine displaced millions of Ukrainians and wounded and killed thousands more, although the official recorded counts are believed to be lower than actual numbers.
