Emerging axis intends to undermine democracy, modern civilization — Ukrainian diplomat
Ukrainian politician and diplomat Roman Bezsmertnyi believes that in order to overcome the anti-civilization and anti-democratic axis, it is necessary to create a general coalition that unifies forces, troops, and industrial complexes
He shared his opinions with Espreso TV.
"A year ago, I said that the course of events indicates a prolongation of the war. I understood perfectly well what was happening then. I understood perfectly well that when there is no air support, you will not go far. In fact, I am convinced that there will be no weapons that will not be used in this war. There will be no option until a common coalition, a joint command, a joint coalition force is created. As you can see, the road to this is underway, but it will take time. I understand perfectly well that some people will think that these are dreams. However, the fact is that in this case we are not talking about a fight between Moscow and Kyiv. It is a fight between democracy and totalitarianism," the diplomat emphasized.
Roman Bezsmertnyi noted that at the recent UN General Assembly, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi made it very clear: "Today, Iran and its allies represent an alternative to democracy and liberalism."
"This means that an axis is being formed there that will do everything to destroy democracy and modern civilization. In order to overcome it, we need an appropriate unification of forces, troops, and industrial complexes," Bezsmertnyi emphasized.
On September 19, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu arrived in Iran for talks with the country's military leadership, including the Chief of the General Staff.
Also on September 19, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, who has often expressed his solidarity with Russia, offered to mediate in the dialogue between Moscow and Kyiv.
Instead, Mohammad Farajallah, editor-in-chief of the Ukraine in Arabic portal, believes that Iran is not considering the transfer of various types of missiles to Russia, as Tehran needs these weapons.
On October 28, the Institute for the Study of War reported that Russia might reach an agreement with Iran to sell missiles after the expiration of UN Security Council Resolution 2231 missile restrictions.
