Some states follow the Russian narrative by refusing to supply weapons to Ukraine.
“Germany not only hesitated, she categorically rejected it. Unfortunately, some states follow the Russian narrative that Ukraine does not need to be armed, because it supposedly could induce us to launch a military strike. This is complete nonsense. We did not attack anyone and We are not going to solve problems in Donbass by military means, “Kuleba stressed.
Kuleba also called the proposal of the deputy of the German Bundestag, representative for foreign policy of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) faction, Niels Schmid, to involve Ukraine in resolving the issue of migrants on the Polish-Belarusian border, as dismissive .
“From a humanitarian point of view, we have great sympathy for the people who are stuck there and who are being manipulated by the Belarusian government. But the way the proposal was presented was simply unacceptable. let Ukraine take care of it. The way the proposals were formulated is not the superiority we deserve. It is also not the arrogance that we would have shown towards German politicians. Therefore, we will not consider such disrespectful proposals, “said Kuleba …
The foreign minister also welcomed the conclusion of a coalition agreement in Germany. “We very much appreciate the fact that she insists on the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine and its European integration,” Kuleba said.
According to the minister, a clear message of the coalition agreement to Russia is also important for Ukraine : it is necessary to stop destabilizing activities in Ukraine and find a political solution.
At the same time, the Foreign Minister noted that Ukraine would like to see a stronger position regarding “geopolitical energy projects” in Europe.
“Therefore, we will work with the new German government to eliminate the threats that Nord Stream 2 poses not only to the security of Ukraine, but also to stability throughout Europe,” Kuleba said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, in June German Foreign Minister Gaiko Maas said that Germany was not planning to supply Ukraine with weapons , but was betting on the political process of resolving the conflict, in particular in the “Normandy format” (Ukraine, Russia, Germany, France). This is how Maas responded to the words of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that Germany did not provide any military assistance, although it could have done so.
