P The Ministry of Ukraine came out with a strong position against the speech of the President Rumen Radev. The dissatisfaction is about the analysis of the war, which the Bulgarian head of state made to diplomats today.
“The Embassy of Ukraine notes with great disappointment that such messages do not support diplomacy, but rather serve the interests of the aggressor state. The military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine began almost 10 years ago, in February 2014. Today is the 635th year. day of Russian full-scale war and Ukrainian citizens are heroically fighting against the aggressor and defending their freedom,” the embassy said.
The real power and effect of diplomacy is when it comes before the bombs and prevents them, not after the devastation and casualties.
This was stated by the president during the conference “Wars and peace: will the time of diplomacy come?”. The event is organized by the Institute of Economics and International Relations and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation.
He is alarmed that after more than seven decades of peace in Europe, war is raging again.
According to him, Russia’s aggression against Ukraine has unleashed the collapse of the global security system built over decades. Our great goal is the restoration of peace in both Europe and the Middle East, but achieving these goals requires us to have an objective and impartial view first of all on the war in Ukraine and a deep and objective analysis of the factors that drive the armed conflict, said the head of state.
He also recalled his meeting with Volodymyr Zelensky, who was on a visit to Bulgaria, at which Radev explained that the armed conflict in Ukraine has no military solution and the only way is negotiations and the achievement of peace.
