it’s time for NATO countries to choose which bloc they gravitate toward anti-Putin or ‘axis unification’
NATO countries should decide which bloc they gravitate to, says Verkhovna Rada Chairman Ruslan Stefanchuk.
“If the choice is the ‘Anti-Hitler’ coalition, I apologize ‘Anti-Putin’, then we are happy to see you and we will consider you our brothers in arms and friends. If your country wants to belong to ‘ axis unification”, prepare for negative consequences. If you want to ‘sit on two chairs,’ it won’t happen – you still have to make your choice, but in worse conditions,” Stefanchuk said, speaking at the spring session of the permanent committees of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.
According to the Verkhovna Rada website, Stefanchuk stressed that right now the moment of truth is coming. According to him, Europe and NATO will either move forward with Ukraine and prosper, or gradually return to the 13th century with Russia.
Stefanchuk recalled that Ukraine has been paying a terrible price for 45 days, but is not giving up on European and Euro-Atlantic integration.
“We hope that NATO, in all its actions, will also be committed to the principles it enshrined in its founding act of 4 April 1949, namely its desire to live in peace with all peoples and all governments, with full determination to defend freedom, the common heritage of their peoples and their civilization based on the principles of democracy, individual freedom and the rule of law,” the politician said.
The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada thanked for the help that NATO countries have provided and continue to provide. He emphasized the need for new quality assistance.
“Give us not only what you have left, but also what we ask for… We are already tired of asking for closed skies and the supply of heavy weapons. I will say this, every day of closed skies will save lives. hundreds of lives of peaceful Ukrainians and dozens of lives of our children. Every day of closed skies over Ukraine will give confidence tomorrow to all residents of the EU country and other countries of the world, ” pointed out Stefanchuk.
