President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador assured that “in a vulgar way” his proposal was distorted to seek peace in the armed conflict between Russia and Ukraineand they put him on the side of Russia.
“We are going to wait because the proposal is not well known. Yesterday I even repeated what we proposed for it to be more widely disseminated and those who saw it, but they are sectarian or in favor of one of the parties, because what they did was distort the meaning of the proposal, which is to seek peace.
And they put me on the side of RussiaI have already suffered from that in other times, ”said López Obrador in his conference this monday morning at the National Palace.
Yesterday Mykhailo Mykhailovych Podolyak, adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenski, questioned President López Obrador’s peace plan, pointing out that the Mexican president’s proposal benefits the Russian government.
“The ‘peacemakers’ who use the war as a theme for their own public relations cause only surprise. Andrés Manuel López Obrador, is your plan to keep millions under occupation, increase the number of mass burials and give Russia time to renew reserves before the next offensive? So your ‘plan’ is a Russian plan,” said the Ukrainian politician.

President López Obrador pointed out that the foreign minister Marcelo Ebrard and the Mexican ambassador to the UN, Juan Ramon de la Fuentehave the task of seeking international support for their peace proposal with other nations, because war “is the most irrational” there can be.

President López Obrador rejected that Pope Francis has pointed out that supplying weapons for self-defense to Ukraine is something legitimate: “I am going to review it, but I do not think he has said it, he has been in favor of peace and has been careful to maintain an anti-war stance without departing from neutrality”.
