The assistance to Ukraine in the war against Russian occupiers is not a 'pro-Western' position. It demonstrates a rejection of terror.

This was stated in a column for RBC-Ukraine by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Dmytro Kuleba, and the head of European Union diplomacy, Josep Borrell.

According to Kuleba and Borrell, the war and its consequences affect not only Ukraine but the whole world. Because if Russia wins, it will be a sign that the 'right is on the side of the strong.' Therefore, other dictatorships may follow Moscow's example.

"In the end, this war is not about 'the West against others.' Supporting Ukraine is not 'pro-Western.' It is about rejecting war and terror. It is about upholding the principle of international relations based on mutual respect and supporting the right of Ukrainians to security and freedom," they emphasized.

The Ukrainian minister and the EU's chief diplomat added that Ukraine and the EU share a view of international relations in the 21st century that is completely at odds with the view of the aggressor country. The vision of our country and the bloc is based on international law, respect, and mutual benefit.
