‘The aggressor needs to be stopped, not supplied with new capabilities’.
These and the following was stated by representative of Ukraine to UNESCO Executive Council Danylo Lubkivskiy during the press briefing in Kyiv.
‘We are grateful to the EU, the U.S., Canada, Japan, Norway and many other countries for solidarity with Ukrainian people, and introducing additional sanctions against the Russian Federation’, – Lubkivskiy said. – ‘I hope that the entire civilized world will join sanctions to stop the Kremlin’.
Ukraine, in turn, introduces national sanctions against Russian business associated with the Kremlin and those who in public endorse aggression regarding our country.
The world is following closely France whose Mistral deal with Russia is a test for the integrity of a common policy of the West in the face of the aggression.
‘We urge Paris not to reinforce the aggressor with new military capabilities in this time of trial’, – Lubkivskiy underlined. – ‘The aggressor needs to be stopped, not supplied with new capabilities’.
Meanwhile the atmosphere in Russia is thickening.
The Kremlin deprives its own people of freedom of Internet and speech, integral values of the modern world. It further impairs the Russian economy. The Kremlin propaganda justifies self-isolation of the country. But the self-isolation is never good for a nation. The self-isolation and militarization of economy resulted in the Soviet Union collapse.
