Self-preservation instinct will force NATO and US to make favorable decisions for Ukraine - diplomat
Diplomat, Ukraine's Minister of Foreign Affairs (2007-2009) Volodymyr Ohryzko said that Ukraine, NATO and the United States have no right to lose in this war
He expressed this opinion in the Verdict with Serhiy Rudenko program on Espreso TV channel.
"If we step back and just theorize, in the event of Ukraine's defeat, Putin will take it as an invitation to war against everyone. In this case, we must clearly understand that if Putin reaches the Ukrainian-Polish border or the Ukrainian-Romanian border, they will be next. There is no doubt about it. And then Putin will have a strategic and psychological advantage over NATO. Because Ukraine's defeat will mean NATO's defeat," Ohryzko emphasized.
According to the diplomat, neither Ukraine nor NATO and the United States have the right to lose in this war.
"Even if we imagine that governments in some countries will come to power that are not so determined, the instinct of self-preservation will force them to make decisions that will be beneficial to both them and Ukraine. Otherwise, the situation will be dramatic for them," emphasized Ohryzko.
Voting for the temporary budget and McCarthy's resignation
On October 1, Joe Biden signed a bill to temporarily fund the government for 45 days, which was approved by the Senate and House of Representatives. Prior to this, the White House President issued a statement that the agreement did not include new funding to continue supporting Ukraine.
On October 3, the House of Representatives dismissed Kevin McCarthy over accusations by fellow Republicans that he had compromised with Democrats, secured the adoption of a 45-day budget, and made a "secret deal" with Joe Biden.
