Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said his country would not vote for a UN Security Council resolution condemning Russia's military operation in Ukraine. It is reported by RIA Novosti.
“No sanctions or condemnation of President (of the Russian Federation Vladimir) Putin. Brazil's vote is not determined by or associated with any power. Our free voice will be given in this direction ... Our position with the Minister (Foreign Affairs of Brazil - ed.) Carlos França is a balance. And we can't interfere. We want peace, but we cannot allow the consequences in Brazil,” said the President of Brazil.
He noted that there is no talk of massacres of civilians, no one uses such tactics, and talking about a massacre is an exaggeration, the Russian leader has no interest in "carrying out a massacre."
According to him, in making decisions and statements regarding Russia, he will be guided by practical considerations, taking into account the partnership between the two countries.
