He stressed that Brazil is a country of peace. “Right now, we need to find those who want peace, this word has been used very little until now,” RIA Novosti quoted the Brazilian politician as saying. This Twitter post appeared immediately after Lula da Silva’s meeting with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.
In another publication, the President of Brazil affirmed that it is necessary to create a club of countries that want to build peace on the planet and Brazil is willing to contribute. Lula added that if he goes to China in March, he intends to speak there about peace between Russia and Ukraine.
Earlier, the Brazilian newspaper Folha de S.Paulo reported that the Brazilian president had rejected the German side’s request to supply ammunition for the Leopard tanks, which Berlin would transfer to Kyiv. Lula da Silva stressed that the Russians should not be provoked.
Meanwhile, the influence of Leopard 2 tanks on the course of the Ukrainian conflict is overestimated, the author of an article in the FT publication believes. The author of the article believes that even if the Armed Forces create a tank brigade, the Russian troops will adapt, which will eventually weaken the power of these vehicles.
