The leader, who is also Minister of Social Rights Ione Belarra, is in contact with the France Insoumise leader, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, and the former leader of the United Kingdom’s Labor Party, Jeremy Corbyn, with the objective of promoting actions for peace in the so-called Old Continent, in view of Russia’s actions.
Belarra is one of the figures of Podemos and the Spanish left that has spoken out against her government decision to send weapons to Ukraine, in view of which she is seeking support with other personalities of the progressive world to redouble efforts for a diplomatic solution to the conflict, it was revealed this Sunday through a video broadcast.
In the video, the secretary general of Podemos stressed that when “the right and the ultra-right are beating the drums of war throughout Europe, many of them trying to hide their links with Putin, the demand is “to say loud and clear that the guns should be silenced and that the European Union (EU) should actively work for peace and international mediation”.
Belarra insisted on increasing efforts to “support and accompany the talks that are already taking place between Russia and Ukraine”. She also called for a deepeer understanding of the geopolitical causes that have given rise to the conflict, as the only possible way to put an end to this tragedy.
