A number of countries of the Asia-Pacific Economic Forum urged the Russian Federation to withdraw all its troops from Ukraine.

The demand of the Russian Federation was put forward by representatives of seven APEC states – the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea and Chile, Reuters reports , referring to their joint statement.

“Reaffirming the importance of a rules-based international order that supports an open, dynamic, resilient and peaceful Asia-Pacific region, we urge Russia to immediately refrain from the use of force and withdraw all of its armed forces from Ukraine completely and unconditionally,” the document says.

Earlier it was reported that a meeting of APEC trade ministers was held in Bangkok (Thailand). Ministers from the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia and New Zealand left the room as Russian Economic Development Minister Maxim Reshetnikov began to speak during the meeting.

Recall that  Russia invaded Ukraine early in the morning on February 24 . The enemy first attacked military facilities, and then fired at civilian cities. According to the Ukrainian side, in Mariupol alone, due to the large-scale aggression of the Russian Federation, there are more than 20,000 victims.

Help UNIAN. APEC is a forum of 21 countries in the Asia-Pacific region, created to cooperate in the field of regional trade, as well as to facilitate investment. Russia is taking part in the forum.



  1. Why do they even waste their time and energy for this useless call?
    Death and destruction to the cockroach army is the only thing that will solve this problem anymore. Period.

  2. When someone reads the document to putler, perhaps his reply be : “fair point; now I come to think about it, you are right. We go home tomorrow.”
    Perhaps not. The nazi rodent will respond only to a crushed military and total economic destruction. The latter of which he is more likely to deliver to us unless he is stopped.

    • He’s feeling the losses now, but he will stop only when he is unable to fight anymore.
