The Spanish Senate was outraged by the policy of double standards regarding the transfer of weapons to Ukraine


Senator Carles Mulet Garcia of Spain addressed the government for the fourth time about Madrid’s controversial policy regarding the supply of weapons to other countries. He was outraged that Spain was transferring weapons to Ukraine, but at the same time not doing this for Western Sahara. RT got acquainted with the request of the politician.

The Spanish senator in his address recalled the conflict in Western Sahara. Mulet Garcia noted that Madrid supports the efforts of the UN Secretary General to find a political solution, however, in his opinion, the government’s actions in this direction do not bring results.

The senator asked why, in this case, drastic measures are not taken, as in relation to Russia, such as an economic blockade, sanctions, rupture of institutional relations or the supply of weapons.

“Given that the Sahara is closer than Ukraine, then why don’t they send weapons to the Saharawi people, since they do this in the case of Ukraine? Human life is less valuable depending on the continent? (Obviously, this is a rhetorical question, I do not support sending weapons anywhere.),” the appeal says.

It is noteworthy that for the first time the politician asked this question in March, then repeated it three more times.

“Despite the fact that this question was asked several times, and it was clear what they were asking, the government still does not want to answer it,” said Mulet Garcia.

Western Sahara has been seeking independence since the 1970s, but Morocco considers the territory an integral part of itself and only allows it to be granted broad autonomy within the kingdom. So far, the dispute has not been resolved.

Earlier, the French National Assembly expressed concern that the weapons supplied to Kyiv could fall into the hands of “enemies of the West.”
