Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the West of fueling the conflict in Ukraine, in a video message at the international military-technical forum in Russia. “We can clearly see where the policy of adding fuel to the fire with the example of Ukraine leads to further ignite the conflict.”
Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the West of fueling the conflict in Ukraine to gain profit by modernizing its offensive capabilities.
These statements were issued in a video message at the international military-technical forum taking place this week on the outskirts of Moscow.
“We can clearly see where the policy of adding fuel to the fire leads with the example of Ukraine. By pumping billions of dollars into the neo-Nazi regime, supplying it with equipment, weapons, ammunition, sending its military advisers and mercenary,” Vladimir Putin declared .
“Everything is being done to further ignite the conflict, to draw other states into it,” he added.
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that despite this, kyiv’s forces “do not achieve results on the battlefield.”
The Kremlin chief added that there are latent sources of tension in other regions of the world and that “all of them are generated by geopolitical adventures, selfish, neocolonial actions of the West.”
China reinforces the idea of negotiations
Chinese Defense Minister Li Shangfu, who is visiting Russia, addressed the conference, saying “it is important to communicate openly and resolve differences.”
“Whether it is Afghanistan, Syria, the Korean Peninsula, Ukraine, or Iran on the nuclear issue, China is committed to promoting peace and negotiations, and building more international consensus,” Shangfu said.
China claims to be neutral in the conflict but has accused the United States and its allies of provoking Russia and has maintained strong economic, diplomatic and trade ties with Moscow.
