Zelensky – Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky who will speak in Parliament on March 22 “will be welcomed with open arms by our democratic institutions,” said President Farnesina. “I was in Kyiv a week before the Russian attack, I met many Ukrainian citizens who viewed the European Union as their dream for the future – added Di Maio – these people are indeed European people with the ambition to join our European family. We must not deny this hope, they have All right, and that scares Putin because these people look at our free and democratic model where propaganda can never take root.”

Visit Biden – “The presence of the President of the United States in Europe aims above all to confirm once again the principle of the unity of NATO, the European Union and all our allies in the world,” said Di Maio.

Instead it is no longer an East-West conflict” and “What we reaffirm with President Biden is that we are united, we condemn this war and we are on the side of the Ukrainian people invaded by a Russian army that is paying the price of lives.”
threaten Russia As for Russia’s threats against Italy, they are daily provocations that every country that stands on the side of peace and the Ukrainian people receives from Russia. We do not notice this anymore, and we cannot consider these provocations to be sincere,” said the Foreign Minister, who then expressed his solidarity with Minister Guerini. “Unfortunately, we are in good company,” Di Maio added, recalling Russian threats “against Germany, France, Malta and all countries that strongly condemn Putin for what he is doing.”
Arrests in Russia – Di Maio said that in Russia there are “more than 15,000 arrests” of anti-war demonstrators, because “the Russian people do not support the invasion of Ukraine.” “Through his propaganda and the arrests of protesters against him, Putin continues to hide the truth,” “in Russia there is no access to reliable information. Despite this there are thousands of protesters in the square “against the war.” This shows that the Russian people are not the ones who support the invasion of Ukraine. It is Putin’s government, the Russian government.”

We never depend on one country and thanks to our history we can always build alternative methods for any blackmail,” he added.
