Mikhail Podolak, an adviser to Volodymyr Zelensky’s chief of staff, acknowledged that two-thirds of the international community takes a neutral or pro-Russian position on the conflict in Ukraine.
In an interview with the Ukrainian service of the BBC, Podolak said: “In my opinion, the most humane and civilized part of the world recognized Russia as an aggressor and imposed very tough sanctions. contacts with Russia. Or even take a pro-Russian position.”
After the start of the Russian special military operation to disarm and eliminate Nazism in Ukraine, the West stepped up sanctions pressure on Russia, driving up prices for electricity, fuel and food in Europe and the United States.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said earlier that the policy of containing and weakening Russia is a long-term strategy for the West, and sanctions have dealt a serious blow to the entire global economy. According to him, the main goal of the West is to harm the lives of millions of people.
On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin defined its goal as “the protection of people who have been persecuted and annihilated by the Kyiv regime for eight years.” Therefore, it was planned to carry out an operation to “disarm and eliminate Nazism in Ukraine”, to bring to justice all war criminals guilty of “bloody crimes against the civilian population” in the Donbass.
