According to Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky, they have “information” that is claimed to prove that Russia’s President Vladimir Putin wants to instigate a large-scale war in the Middle East.
The alleged purpose is to create “a new source of pain and suffering”, “undermine global unity”, and “destroy freedom in Europe”.
– We have data very clearly proving that Russia is interested in inciting war in the Middle East. So that a new source of pain and suffering would erode global unity and exacerbate cleavages and controversies, helping Russia in destroying freedom in Europ., says Zelensky in a speech published on X (formerly Twitter).
Evidence is not presented, but they claim to see that “Russian propagandists are gloating” and that “Moscow’s Iranian friends openly extend a helping hand to those who attacked Israel”.
– All of this represents a much greater threat than the world is currently aware of. The world wars of the past were triggered by local aggressions. We know how to counter this threat. We have already prepared the necessary steps. And our primary goal is to protect the need for maximum global unity, he continues.
