Russia’s ambassador: “I'm a patriot of my country, and I stand with my president" | Tense interview
Russia’s ambassador to Canada says he fully supports what he calls his country’s “special military operation” in Ukraine.
“I'm a patriot of my country, and I stand with my president and I stand with the troops on the ground,” Russian ambassador Oleg Stepanov said on CTV’s Question Period. “Me and my colleagues here at the embassy, we are 100 per cent confident that we stand on the right side of history.”
In a tense and wide-ranging interview with CTV Question Period host Evan Solomon, Stepanov flatly denied that his country is committing war crimes and targeting civilians in Ukraine, even going so far as asserting that Ukrainian forces themselves are responsible for the atrocities they’ve blamed on Russia
From the comments:
Alternate realities/universes. He states that an independent investigation is required to determine deaths in Ukraine, yet states Ukraine is attacking itself, bombing their own cities and murdering their own families without any independent investigation.
