While the Ukrainian counterattack has not brought the expected resultswith negligible progress, and in the background supporters of one are increasing Korean scenario for ending the war, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine lashed out at Kiev’s critics in the West.
Specifically, Mr Dmytro Kuleba called out those criticizing Kiev for the slow pace of the counterattack “to shut up”.
“Criticism of the slow pace of the counterattack is tantamount to spitting in the face of the Ukrainian soldier who sacrifices his life every day, advancing and liberating one kilometer of Ukrainian territory after another,” he told reporters during an informal meeting of EU foreign ministers, which he attended as an observer.
“I would advise all critics to get the hell out of there. Come to Ukraine and try to free one square centimeter yourself,” he added.
It is recalled that Ukraine has launched its counter-offensive since last June, however the initial optimism for repelling the Russians and regaining the territories up to the Crimea has so far been denied. For weeks now, the reports and reports about the quagmire in which it has fallen have been increasing.
Not long ago there was even one public report by the director of the NATO chief’s office on an armistice with the surrender of territories on the model of ending the Korean War. The official in question after the strong reactions from Kiev was forced to withdrawhowever it is a fact that the scenario in question has been on the table for quite some time.
Ukraine’s staunchest supporters attribute the near-zero progress to a delay in providing heavy equipment (tanks, missiles and aircraft) from Western allies.
In this context Dmytro Kuleba took the opportunity to repeat the demand for more and more effective weapons:
“The discussion we’re having now with the German government is about providing long-range Taurus missiles — France and the UK have already done that.” These are missiles that can hit targets at a distance of more than 500 kilometers. Germany, like many other Western allies, would prefer that Ukrainian forces do not have equipment that would allow them to carry out heavy strikes on Russian soilas this could cause a major escalation, with an unpredictable and uncontrolled reaction from Moscow, but also its allies.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, for his part, opposes: “There really isn’t a single objective argument against making this decision.”
Instead, he claimed, “it will help our counter-defense and therefore help end the war sooner.” In the same context, he called on “all EU member states that have F16s to follow the Netherlands, Denmark and Norway and contribute, not only in training, but also with planes.” “It’s something that can be easily done now,” he added.
