Moscow’s challenge to Bucharest: “To confess”

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through the voice of its spokeswoman, Maria Zaharova, invited Bucharest to publicly admit that it sends weapons to Kiev and to stop hiding behind generalities such as “humanitarian assistance”, according to some of its statements posted on the website MFA from Moscow,

“Bucharest avoids publicity in such matters, preferring to speak to the Romanian and international public opinion exclusively about a ‘humanitarian’ support for Ukraine”, Maria Zaharova declared in a press conference on Wednesday in Moscow, adding that a Romanian press agency, which he didn’t name, he actually revealed what kind of support it was.

According to her, a “Romanian press agency reported on a recent telephone conversation between the Romanian Minister of Defense, Vasile Dâncu, and his Ukrainian counterpart, Oleksii Reznikov, who thanked Bucharest for the recently approved fifth tranche of assistance Romanian military for the armed forces of Ukraine, including small arms, ammunition, spare parts for military products”.

It is not clear to which conversation between the two officials the representative of the Russian MAE is referring.

“It is the first time that this topic has appeared so explicitly in the public space, even though video materials had previously appeared on social networks revealing the use of Romanian-made shells by the armed forces of Ukraine. But there was no ‘direct’ factual evidence”, said Zaharova, noting that “from now on it is clear what the word ‘humanitarian’ means”.

In his opinion, “the Romanian authorities obviously feel a moral discomfort, realizing the real consequences of this policy determined by ideology”. “Instead of this false shame, they should confess everything”, declared the spokeswoman of the Russian MFA, inviting Bucharest “to tell the people and the whole world how things are in reality”.

“Supplying Ukrainian nationalists with weapons to fight their own people only prolongs the conflict (in case Bucharest doesn’t know this) and leads to a greater number of victims”, Zaharova also stated.

“Those who contribute to this share with the nationalist regime in Kyiv the responsibility for all the new crimes, the blood and the suffering of the people”, said the representative of the Russian MFA.

“If the Romanian officials think that everything is irrelevant, this is their opinion. But it would be good to make public some ‘disclosures’ about these loads. What are they actually sending to the Kyiv regime?”, Maria Zakharova added in her press conference.

Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24 in what it calls a “special military operation”, an act of aggression not seen since the Second World War on the European continent, the entire West siding with Ukraine, a clear victim of this war of aggression
