Ukraine: Russia has turned eastern Europe into an unpredictable battlefield

A senior adviser to Ukraine's president said on Wednesday that Russia was to blame for any "incidents with missiles" following its invasion of the country.

“In my opinion, it is only necessary to follow one logic. The war has started and is being waged by Russia. Russia massively attacked Ukraine with cruise missiles,” Reuters report Mykhailo Podolyak said in a written statement after US President Joe Biden said a missile that killed two people in Poland may not have been fired from Russia.

“Russia has turned the eastern part of the European continent into an unpredictable battlefield. Intentions, means of execution, risk, escalation - all this is only Russian. And there is no other explanation for any incident with the missile."

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Wednesday a missile attack in eastern Poland near the Ukrainian border, in which two people were killed, must be fully investigated before any conclusions can be drawn.

Reuters reported that in his closing statement after the G20 summit in Bali, Scholz called it a positive sign that the United States had offered to assist Poland in the investigation.

Scholz welcomed the clear language found at the summit to condemn the war in Ukraine, adding: "The Russian president is almost alone in the world with his policies."

In a press conference at the end of the G20 summit in Bali, British prime minister Rishi Sunak said that "while other world leaders are working together to tackle the biggest challenges facing our people, Putin is launching indiscriminate attacks on civilians in Ukraine. ”

He went on to say:

After this attack today, we convened an emergency allied meeting to underscore our solidarity with Ukraine, and Poland. I also spoke with the Polish president Duda this morning to offer his support and wholehearted assurance that Britain stands firmly behind him and his people at this worrying time.

We all need to be clear, none of this would have happened if it weren't for Russia's invasion of Ukraine. These are the cruel and unrelenting realities of Putin's war. As long as it lasts, it is a threat to our security and that of our allies. And while it lasts, it will continue to devastate the global economy.

Sunac added:

The constant threat to our security and asphyxiation of the global economy has been fueled by the actions of one man who did not want to appear at this summit, Vladimir Putin.

There is not a single person in the world who has not felt the effects of Putin's war. Global food markets have been deeply disturbed by his attempts to cut off Ukraine's grain supply. There has been an eightfold increase in global energy prices, thanks to Russia turning off their gas. And the economic aftershocks of Putin's casual disregard for human life will ripple around the world for years to come. This article was written by EDUKASI CAMPUS.
