Russia vs Ukraine: Germany, France Blamed For Russian Invasion By Ukraine
Ukraine has blamed Germany and France once again for the current conflict with Russia.
Dmytro Kuleba, Ukraine’s foreign minister, argued that France and Germany committed a “strategic blunder” by not allowing Ukraine to join NATO in 2008.
He said that it was because of this that Russia was able to attack the nation, resulting in massive devastation and the deaths of thousands of people.
“If we were a member of NATO, this war wouldn’t take place,” Kuleba said in a Sunday morning interview on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press.’
“The strategic mistake that was made in 2008 by Germany and France who rejected the efforts of the United States and other allies to bring Ukraine in, is something that we are paying for,” Kuleba said.
“It’s not Germany or France that are paying the cost for this mistake, it’s Ukraine,” he added.
The war in Ukraine began on February 24, 2022, and has lasted for one month, two weeks and 5 days. US and UK officials have suggested that the war will last longer than expected.
The West has also raised several alarms of war crimes against President Vladimir Putin, of which the Russian authorities have vehemently denied.
