Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Leonid Slutsky:
“President Zelensky today again noted a number of statements at the forum of the Yalta European Strategy – YES Brainstorming, which, according to the organizers, should be devoted exclusively to the topic of combating the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic. aggression. ”Zelenskiy admitted the likelihood of a full-fledged war with Russia, adding that this would be“ Russia’s biggest mistake ”.
It is a very bad trick to save your rating with militaristic rhetoric and whipping up tensions. Yes, and in their right mind it is impossible to imagine that Russia would start a war against its fraternal people. But we have been witnessing the military aggression of the Kiev authorities in the Donbass for the eighth year already. Instead of inventing mythical military campaigns, Zelenskiy should be looking into resolving the current conflict for a long time. How to do this is spelled out in the Minsk Agreements. But Kiev continues to openly sabotage them.
Also noteworthy is another passage by Zelensky that after this “war” there will never be a neighborhood between Russia, Ukraine, Belarus. And this after the rich and constructive talks of the presidents of Russia and Belarus, which took place on Thursday, during which the most important decisions were made within the framework of the integration process! The President of Ukraine has clearly dropped out of the agenda.
Zelensky’s statements still have nothing to do with reality.”
