Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba called for focusing on how to put Russia in its place instead of avoiding “humiliation”.
“Calls to avoid humiliation of Russia can only humiliate France and every other country that would call for it. Because it is Russia that humiliates itself. We all better focus on how to put Russia in its place. This will bring peace and save lives,” Kuleba posted on Twitter.
On June 3, President of France Emmanuel Macron said in an interview with French media that Putin had committed a historic and fundamental error by invading Ukraine. At the same time, according to Macron, it is vital that Russia is not humiliated so that when the fighting stops in Ukraine a diplomatic solution can be found.
