Appeasement won't make Putin stop war against Ukraine – Ireland’s PM
Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar says that Vladimir Putin will stop the war against Ukraine when he is stopped: appeasement won't force the Russian dictator to abandon his aggressive plans
Leo Varadkar said this in an interview with The Irish Times.
The Irish prime minister emphasized that Vladimir Putin won't stop if resistance stops: “A lot of people ask the question, where will Vladimir Putin stop? The truth is, he will stop where we stop him. Some people make the case for appeasement. But Russia already occupied parts of Moldova, already occupied parts of Georgia, and Crimea, which is part of Ukraine.”
In particular, he rejected a possible plan to stop the Russian dictator by 'appeasement'.
“I think appeasement will not cause him to stop, and that is why the stakes are now so high. America, the EU, the free world needs to say, ‘This is a line in the sand that you have crossed. You have gone too far’” he said.
According to Leo Varadkar, peace in Ukraine must be just: with independence, sovereignty, a democratic European future and the right to self-determination.
