Russia is waging a brutal war to destroy Ukraine. At the same time, the Kremlin is only guided by its neo-imperialist aspirations, Alar Karis emphasized.
How the war between Ukraine and Russia ends will determine the future of peace for many years to come. And depending on who wins, either international law or violence will prevail. The President of Estonia, Alar Karis, announced this on Wednesday, September 20, in front of the participants of the UN General Assembly.
“The outcome of this war will largely determine the future in which we and our children will live. Will it be dominated by brutality and violence by people who commit crimes and destroy others, or will we live in a world where where law, order, and justice prevail” , – he said.
He pointed out that Russia has been waging a war of occupation for a year and a half and, despite this, it is a permanent member of the UN Security Council.
“Russia has abused its seat on the Security Council, and is trying to convince the world that black is white. But it is not. A lie is always a lie, no matter how beautiful it is. The General Assembly vote proves that here There is little to those who are trying to believe these Russian lies,” said Karis.
“We must be very clear: Russia entered another sovereign country using a fictitious pretext. The real reason for Russia’s aggression against Ukraine lies in Russia’s neo-imperialist and neo-colonial aspirations. Russia wants to destroy Ukraine, occupy it and spread its ideology there,” the president added.
Lithuania believes that the key to international peace is the future success of Ukraine.
The European Union should include more funds to support Ukraine in its revised long-term budget. This is what Lithuanian Finance Minister Gintare Skaiste said.
