Russia stands for equality, respect for all states

"Russia delivered more than 21.5 thousand tons of humanitarian aid to Ukraine and since 2014 has received more than 2.5 million refugees from its territory"

Lately it became a habit to accuse Russia and only Russia of unprovoked and premeditated aggression. I would like to remind you that Russia was forced to start a military operation in response to a call for help from the population of Donbass, after eight years of genocide and violation of their legal rights, in the face of the unconditional refusal of the Ukrainian government to fulfill its international obligations. The aim of the operation is to neutralize neo-Nazi armed formations and destroy military targets. At the same time, Russia delivered more than 21.5 thousand tons of humanitarian aid to Ukraine and since 2014 has received more than 2.5 million refugees from its territory.

One does not need to be an expert to see that the tactics of the Ukrainian AFU is urban warfare, using the civilian population as a human shield, shooting at those trying to escape through humanitarian corridors, causing maximum destruction and casualties among the civilian population, and then blaming Russia for this havoc. However, apparently, the restoration funding was promised to Kiev by its allies, perhaps even using Russian sovereign assets in the most reliable banks.

These facts do not seem abnormal to those who today impose sanctions against Russia and sign anti-Russian articles, just as they were not bothered by the bombings and invasions against Korea and China (1950-1953), Guatemala (1954, 1960, 1967-1969), Indonesia (1958), Cuba (1959-1961), Congo (1964), Laos (1964-1973), Vietnam (1961-1973), Cambodia (1969-1970), Grenada (1983), Lebanon (1983-1984), Libya (1986), El Salvador and Nicaragua (1980s), Iran (1987), Panama (1989), Iraq (1991, 2003-2015), Kuwait (1991), Somalia (1993, 2007-2008, 2011), Bosnia (1994-1995), Sudan (1998), Afghanistan (1998, 2001-2015), Yugoslavia (1999), Yemen (2002, 2011, 2015), Pakistan (2007-2015), Libya (2011, 2015), Syria ( 2014-2015). It is preferred not to mention who is responsible for the only nuclear weapons attack in history, against the peaceful cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The number of civilian casualties as a result of all these violent actions is ignored, as well as the 14,000 deaths in Ukraine since 2014. Now, no one is surprised anymore that a certain group of countries call themselves the whole international community, arrogating to themselves the right to the truth, the right to execute and pardon, accuse the president of a sovereign state of war crimes without any impartial investigation by authoritative bodies. The country, which is behind the accusations, is not even required to be a member of the International Criminal Court.

It is even becoming fashionable to blame Russia for the worsening energy and food crisis, while in fact it is the maniacal desire to stifle the Russian economy with sanctions that have led to the breakdown of transport and financial chains, from which the developing world suffers first and foremost, not the sanctioners. And instead of promoting development goals, they allocate funds to Kiev for the purchase of Russian armaments in third countries, violating the basic rules of export control and arms trafficking. It is claimed that for Russia, supposedly, there are no security threats, NATO is a defensive alliance. It is enough to look at the map and see the encirclement created by NATO military units on Russia’s borders. None of this is remotely observed on the borders of the US or its allies. We can no longer normalize a world of double standards. We stand for equality and respect for all states.
