So far, the goal of [Vladimir] Putin was not the search for peace, but the attempt to destroy the Ukrainian resistance, to occupy the country and to hand it over to a friendly governmentcontinued Mr. Draghi, who reiterated his support for Ukraine.
The head of the Italian government confided that he thought, at the start of the conflict,
that a quick Russian victory was likely. He wanted to greet
heroic ukrainian resistance.
” What awaits us is a war of resistance, prolonged violence with destruction that will continue. There is no indication that the Ukrainian people can accept the Russian occupation. »
Mr. Draghi also believes that the delivery of arms to the Ukrainian people is more necessary than ever.
Sanctions are essential to weaken the aggressor, but they fail to stop the troops in the short term. To do this, we must directly help the Ukrainians, and that is what we are doing. Not to do so would be to tell them: surrender, accept slavery and submission – a message contrary to our European values of solidarityhe said.
Italy will reopen its embassy in kyiv on Monday, following in the footsteps of France.
Macron invited to Ukraine
President Emmanuel Macron’s refusal to call the Russian military intervention a genocide prompted Volodymyr Zelensky to invite his French counterpart to Ukraine to see for himself.
The Ukrainian president had found Mr. Macron’s position very hurtful. The two men had the opportunity to discuss it.
I think he wants to get Russia to engage in a dialogueexplained Mr. Zelensky in an interview with CNN.
” I told him that I wanted him to understand that this is not a war, that it is nothing but genocide. I invited him to come when he gets the chance […] He will come, he will see and I am sure he will understand. »
In the midst of his re-election campaign, Mr. Macron explained on Thursday that the word
genocide should, in his opinion, be
employed by lawyers, not by politicians and
to enter into verbal escalation did not help Ukraine.
Joe Biden did not hesitate for his part to evoke the genocide of the Ukrainian people by the Russians. Mr Zelensky also invited the US President to visit Ukraine.
I think he will come, but the decision is up to him. Of course, it depends on the security situation, he said. But he is the leader of the United States and, for that, he should come and see.
We would be happy to see it in our country. This would be an important message of support for usadded the head of Ukrainian diplomacy Dmytro Kouleba, in an interview with the American channel CBS.
According to him, a meeting between Presidents Biden and Zelensky
could also pave the way for further US arms transfers to Ukraine and for discussions on a possible political settlement of this conflict.
The US government is considering sending an envoy to kyiv, but the White House has so far ruled out a high-risk trip by the president himself.
