Putin’s regime has already surpassed Hitler’s Third Reich in its barbarian methods
Following the joint victory of Ukraine and the anti-Putin coalition in the war against Russia, a revised security system must be created that will truly ensure that war, occupation, and aggression never really happen again.
This is stated in the comment by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine on the Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation.
As the Ministry underscores, the greatest tribute to the sacrifice of all those, who laid their lives during World War II in the name of peace, prosperity, and security of the world, was our joint commitment to ensure that the tragedy would never again be repeated. However, by unleashing its unprovoked full-scale war against Ukraine, Russia has brutally violated those commitments, undermined world security and showed its disregard for the rules-based international order.
“In its barbarian methods Putin’s regime has already surpassed Hitler’s Third Reich. The atrocities of the Russian army in this war have shocked the world, and investigations of Russian military’s crimes are already under way in order to bring all responsible to justice,” reads the statement.
The Ukrainian diplomats state that the impact of the war is felt worldwide, as Russia openly endangers the peace of the EU countries and jeopardizes global food security, while looting Ukrainian grain, blocking shipments from Ukrainian ports and threatening agriculture.
“As with the anti-Hitler Coalition 80 years ago, the democratic world is now united again in the face of common challenges to our shared values. Along the defense lines here in Ukraine the aggressor will be undoubtedly ultimately defeated by the Heroes of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and with the support of our partners… This time our shared victory should be followed by the establishment of a revised security system that will truly ensure that the war, occupation and aggression will really never happen again. The grounds for this new secure world have already been laid down now,” the Ministry considers.
The MFA of Ukraine expresses the gratitude on behalf of the whole Ukrainian nation to those who have proved to be our true friends and allies, who imposed devastating sanctions, provided Ukrainian people with decisive military, humanitarian and financial support to stop this new global threat of Putin’s Russia and shared their homes with those Ukrainians, whom the war forced to flee temporarily until they can come back to rebuild everything that Russians have destroyed.
On May 8, Ukraine marks the Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation to commemorate the victims of World War II.
On February 24, Russian president Vladimir Putin announced a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops shell and destroy infrastructure, massively fire on residential areas of Ukrainian cities, towns, and villages using artillery, MLRS, and ballistic missiles.
