Rumen Radev pointed out that military aid to Kiev implies “agreement with the position” that the conflict “must be fought on until one of the sides is completely defeated”
SOFIA, January 21. /TASS/. The ongoing military aid to Ukraine may trigger a global conflict, Bulgarian President Rumen Radev said in an interview with the Darik Radio on Saturday, urging not to send weapons to Kiev.
“The ultimate value is peace and human life. Supplying weapons [to Kiev] means that we are putting out the fire with gasoline, means admitting that there will be many more casualties,” Radev said cited by his press service.
The Bulgarian president pointed out that military aid to Kiev implies “agreement with the position” that the conflict “must be fought on until one of the sides is completely defeated,” which inevitably and gradually draws the country “into a global conflict and the possibility of nuclear self-destruction.”
Radev emphasized that his country “should not send weapons to fuel this conflict.”
“My duty as president is to think and to show solidarity with the majority of Bulgarians,” he said.
“Now we are short of weapons, but if we are short of people one day, what should we do then?” Radev asked, noting that the military conflict was getting increasingly violent, was expanding its reach and leading to exhaustion and a global economic disaster, which is already being experienced by Europeans.
