On Twitter, the minister said the special military operations announced by President Vladimir Putin fulfilled the goal of neutralizing Ukrainian military bases used to commit a genocide against the dissident population from the Donbass region.
They also aimed to dissuade the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) from carrying out its hostile plans against Russia, Ñañez, also vice president of Communication, Culture and Tourism, said.
“This outcome, resulting from the constant provocations of the West against a sovereign State such as the Federation of Russia, can be interpreted in two ways: 1-Ukraine’s nazi-fascist government has been isolated, 2-no one wants a military escalation, which is not convenient in today’s world”, Ñañez stressed.
“Western bravado and anti-Russian propaganda aside, the lesson is one: respecting Russia. Past history, and the one that is being written today, advise it,” the minister said.
On Thursday, the Venezuelan government advocated for a diplomatic solution to the Ukraine crisis and called for an effective dialogue between the parties involved in the conflict to prevent an escalation.
In a statement issued by the foreign ministry, the Venezuelan government expressed concern over the situation in that eastern European country, which it attributed to NATO’s breach of the Minsk Agreements, promoted by the United States.
