The Foreign Minister of Ukraine, Dmytro Kuleba assured this Tuesday that when Russia talks about the possibility of a Third World War breaking out, this time nuclear, it is because it feels that it is losing the battle in Ukraine.

Kuleba thus responded to his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, who on Monday warned of the danger of a nuclear war which, he said, “is serious, is real (and) should not be underestimated.”

Lavrov declared in an interview on Channel One’s Big Game program, reproduced by several Russian agencies, that although “the inadmissibility of a nuclear war is Moscow’s principled position, the danger of such a conflict should not be underestimated.”

Russia loses the last hope of scaring the world out of supporting Ukraine. Hence, there is talk of a ‘real’ danger of the Third World War”Kuleba replied on his Twitter account.

In his opinion, Lavrov’s words only mean that “Moscow feels defeat in Ukraine. Therefore, the world must redouble its support for Ukraine so that we prevail and safeguard European and global security.”

Lavrov’s statements and Kuleba’s response came shortly before the announced visit of the Secretary General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, to Moscow, where today he is scheduled to meet with the Foreign Minister and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Guterres will also visit Ukraine, where next Thursday he will have a working meeting with Kuleba and later he will meet with the Ukrainian president, Volodimir Zelensky.

Also, the Ukrainian president, Volodimir Zelensky, has assured that “everyone in the world”, including those who do not openly support the country, “agree” that it is in Ukraine “where the fate of Europe is decided”global security and the democratic system.

“In two months a world coalition against the war was formed. Sanctions have already been imposed on Russia, which have taken away its future. Ukraine receives aid from dozens of countries. This is support in the form of weapons, finances, necessary goods, direct political support.”highlighted the Ukrainian president.

Thus, Zelensky has pointed out, in his usual evening speech, that Russia can spend “enormous resources to support the war” and that it can “oppose the free world” or take from its people “everything that Russia itself could develop”, but He has said he will lose.

“The lessons of history are well known. If you’re going to build a millennial Reich, you lose. If you go to destroy the neighbors, you lose. If you want to restore the old empire, you lose. And if you go against the Ukrainians, you lose.”has ruled, as stated in a statement from the Ukrainian Presidency.

Zelensky has also described the receipt and response of a questionnaire to speed up their entry into the European Union as a “historic moment”. “For Russia to seek peace, all Ukrainians must still fight. They must defend freedom”, he added.

He also stressed that in two months Moscow has used more than 1,100 missiles against Ukraine. “Countless bombs and artillery. They tortured, robbed, executed. They mined our land. Peaceful cities and towns turned into hell,” she explained.

The Ukrainian president has pointed out that in occupied cities, such as Kherson, Kharkiv, Melitopol, Dnipro or Energodar, “people showed their attitude towards the occupiers with their protest.” “People who are confident. What do you believe in your state? Who know how to respect others because they respect themselves ”, he has indicated.
