We must defend the idea that Russia cannot win the war against Ukraine

The food and energy crises have painfully affected the economies of many countries, but the world needs to know what’s causing it and certainly realize that Putin will not win the war against Ukraine.

EU High Representative Josep Borrell said this in New York during a discussion within the Atlantic Council entitled “From Ukraine to the US states: the recovery from global shocks is protected,” reports a Ukrinform correspondent.

Video of Josep Borrell’s speech made public on EU multimedia portal.

“There were certain feelings when I spoke with my colleagues from the American states… The people here (in Latin America – ed.) are much more concerned about the consequences of the war than about its causes. But there is also a clue to a way out of the situation. People want an end to this war and a quick end. But how should it end? We must defend the idea that Russia cannot win this war. Russia cannot break into a neighboring country and capture part of it. This is an important message that you and we must convey to the international community, and especially to Latin America,” stressed the EU High Representative.

He noted that the consequences of the Russian aggression against Ukraine have become very difficult for the countries of Latin America. This region has the lowest economic development indicators in the world, the highest inflation in the past 15 years and a rapid increase in poverty. A significant proportion of people are at risk of starvation – before the COVID-19 pandemic their numbers were about 4 million, after the pandemic – 8 million, and has now risen to nearly 30 million. This region is therefore going through a real economic shock.

“This situation has become a reflection of the food and energy crisis, for them it is a crisis of food, oil and, to a large extent, fertilizers. That is why the region is under great pressure. The financial problems have exacerbated here, the region has almost halved the inflow of external capital. It should be explained that these are not the consequences of sanctions, as the Russian story is trying to convince people all over the world. This war became the reason for blocking the Ukrainian grain and fertilizers,” emphasized Josep Borrell.

The diplomat assured that the EU will continue to assist Latin America extensively, including with the “green” revolution, digital transformation, overcoming food and security challenges – all of this remains on the negotiating table. At the same time, the EU expects countries in the region to consistently uphold the fundamental principles of international law.

“What we need from the peoples of Latin America is a strong commitment to uphold international law, the principles of inviolability of borders, territorial integrity and sovereignty. The peoples of Latin America are deeply involved in this, because they themselves have suffered deeply from the attacks on their own sovereignty and territorial integrity. Now is a good time to unite in the face of global challenges,” added the EU High Representative.

As reported, a representative delegation of the European Union has left for New York to participate in the debates of the 77th session of the UN General Assembly.
