The Mexican president responded to a question on the subject during his morning press conference at the National Palace.
We hope that the situation in Ukraine will soon be normalized, that there will be dialogue. We do not want war anywhere and we do not want the civilian population to be affected. We do not want war confrontation and that is our position, he said.
Shortly before, on Twitter, Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard indicated that he had communicated with the Mexican ambassador in Kiev, Olga Beatriz García, who reported that the Mexican families in the Ukrainian capital are well and that a follow-up is being carried out for their protection.
Russian President Vladimir Putin announced today a special military operation at the request of the People’s Republics of the Donbass region and stressed that his country has no plans to occupy Ukrainian territories.
Putin noted that his country is acting in self-defense in the face of Western aggression and the threats and expansion of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), which continues to extend its positions eastward and bring its military infrastructure closer to Russia’s borders.
Moscow acts in accordance with Article 51, Chapter 7 of the UN Charter and in compliance with the Treaties of Friendship and Mutual Assistance with the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republic, he said.
The head of state denounced manipulation in connection with the Ukrainian issue and stressed Russia’s concerns “about the fundamental threats that year after year, step by step, rudely and unceremoniously, are created by irresponsible politicians in the West.”
