Countries that ‘badly treated Ukraine’ will be held accountable, says Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba
Ukraine will remember those who supported it in its conflict with Russia and hold those who did not accountable, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba warned Friday in a BBC interview.
The choices each nation made during the Russian military operation in Ukraine will be “taken into account in the construction of future relations”, Kuleba said, adding that countries that have “behaved badly during this war and mistreated Ukraine” would pay a price.
“If anyone in the world thinks that the way this or that country behaved – or treated Ukraine at the darkest time in its history – will not be taken into account in the establishment of future relations , these people just don’t know how diplomacy works,” he added. he said, noting that “War is a time when you have to make a choice. And every choice has been recorded.
The minister also blamed the West for not delivering weapons to Ukraine quickly enough, pointing out that every day that weapons are not delivered is a day that Ukrainian soldiers die on the front line.
Russia responded to Kuleba’s statement by noting that everything he said had long been understood by Ukrainian citizens, which is why they even shun the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote in a Telegram article that while Kuleba was “trying to clumsily intimidate the global community”, he was simultaneously posting announcements on his department’s website, seeking “Anyone who could represent the kyiv regime at the level of ambassadors abroad.”
“Even if there is a salary in foreign currency, it seems that there is no one to find”, Zakharova said.
Meanwhile, Russia pointed out that more and more UN member states were beginning to question the true nature of the conflict between Moscow and Kyiv as they grew increasingly skeptical of the calls of the West to Peace in Ukraine.
“Very quickly it became clear that it is not Russia and Ukraine who are fighting in Ukraine right now. This is a NATO proxy war against Russia in the hands of the Ukrainians, to the last Ukrainian,” Dmitry Polyansky, deputy head of Moscow’s mission to the UN, said last week.
