Former President of Brazil: It is “irresponsible” for the West to glorify Zelensky

Brazilian presidential candidate Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva told Time magazine that it is “irresponsible” for Western leaders to glorify Zelensky. According to Lula, the West is fomenting the conflict in Ukraine instead of focusing on closed-door negotiations to stop the fighting.

“I see the president of Ukraine speaking on television, he receives a standing ovation from all (European) parliamentarians,” Lula told the magazine. “You were a good comedian. But let’s not fight just to get you on TV,” she added. Lula, who appears on the cover of a new edition of Time, is leading the polls in Brazil’s October election as he hopes to return to office after ending last year’s corruption convictions that landed him in jail. .

Lula, 76, said Zelenskiy should have succumbed to Russian opposition to Ukraine’s moves to join NATO and negotiate with Russian President Vladimir Putin to avoid a conflict. The former Brazilian president believes that Biden and the leaders of the European Union have not done enough to negotiate with Russia. “The United States has a lot of political influence. And Biden could have prevented the conflict, not provoked it,” Lula said. “That’s the kind of attitude you expect from a leader.” According to him, the US and the EU could have avoided the conflict by declaring that Ukraine would not join NATO.

Lula has been a key player on the international stage for two presidential terms, bolstering Brazil’s diplomatic clout, notes The Guardian.
