Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said in a national telethon, that none of his Western counterparts spoke about negotiations with Russia when he called after Russian missile strikes.
“No one dared to do it. We are diplomats, but in recent days, when someone tries to say the word negotiations, we just shut their mouths. Because after what Russia has done, there is only one conclusion – Russian missiles are Russia’s answer to negotiations. And we clearly say this to some countries that are trying to talk about it,” Kuleba said. “These attacks by Putin will not change or frighten our partners. Everyone expresses condolences, but I told every interlocutor that I respect and thank them, but now we need air defense systems, missile defense systems and even just diesel generators.”
Kuleba said that the European Union is already preparing a response to the massive Russian missile strike on Ukrainian cities on October 10.
I had a call with HR/VP @JosepBorrellF who reaffirmed that the EU continues to support Ukraine resolutely in the wake of Russia’s barbaric strikes. New relevant EU decisions are already in the works.
