DAVOS, Switzerland - Addressing members of the global business and political elite gathered for the World Economic Forum, President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine has called for a major effort to rebuild his country and invited international companies to shunning Russia to set up shop in Ukraine.
He said that Ukraine would be an attractive place for international businesses once the war over, and that the system that had previously created oligarchs would be rooted out.
Zelensky wore his now-trademark khaki T-shirt, but sounded less combative and more calibrated than he has done for months, tweaking his message for his audience, as he has been doing for months.
He said it is necessary to set a precedent so that your brands will not be associated with war crimes. We offer every company leaving the Russian market to continue operating in Ukraine.
