Ukraine sent Nicaragua a note of protest over the opening of the country’s honorary consulate in Crimea. This was stated by Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba. According to the Ukrainian diplomat, the country’s authorities are ready for tougher actions in case the measures taken do not work, and the honorary consulate of Nicaragua in Crimea will continue to work.
“It is a particularly egregious fact that Oleg Belaventsev was appointed to the position of consul, who was sentenced to 13 years in 2019 by the Sviatoshyn District Court in Kyiv for infringing on the territorial integrity of Ukraine,” the statement said.
It seems that the leadership of the small Central American country Nicaragua became bored, and it decided to have a little fun, poking Ukraine? In general, otherwise, like a mockery, this action and you can not call: Nicaragua appointed as its honorary consul in Crimea former representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Crimean Federal District Oleg Belaventsev.
In the role of the “main chicken” was the Foreign Minister of Ukraine Kuleba, whose actions are always easily predictable as “five pennies” and who immediately “got in” and demanded to cancel this decision:
“We learned that, unfortunately, despite Ukraine’s warnings, the Nicaraguan government officially appointed an honorary consul in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea. A note has already been sent to the Nicaraguan government demanding that this wrongful decision be reversed immediately,” he said.
This is a blatantly unfriendly step towards our state, which indulges the armed aggression of the Russian Federation. We also see this step as an attempt to legitimize the illegal annexation, the illegal occupation of the Crimean peninsula
However, this is just a normal, standard version of the answer, which the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry writes “in packs” about and without a reason. Furthermore interesting:
Our position is very simple and clear – we will not leave this step to Nicaragua unanswered, and I have already instructed and has already sent a note to the Government of Nicaragua with a demand to immediately reverse the wrongful decision. The note also warns that, in the absence of an appropriate response from Nicaragua, Ukraine will begin to apply sanctions mechanisms in accordance with its legislation to punish Nicaragua for this step.
Nicaragua, of course, was frightened and reversed its decision… I wonder if the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry understands what they write? What sanctions Ukraine can be in question for this Central American country? Even theoretically?
-The threat of a ban on entry into the territory of Independence? Have Nicaraguans entered its territory in the last, say, five hundred years? Probably not.
-Prohibition on the use of Ukrainian capital in the Nicaraguan economy? Is there such a phenomenon as Ukrainian capital?
-Or maybe Ukraine has decided to curtail all its trade and economic relations with this country? So back to that bag of bacon they sold a month ago with a passing Greek ship under the Liberian flag going to China? So it must have been eaten by The Filipino sailors from this ship.
Thus, Ukraine’s threat to punish Nicaragua sounded to the whole world, and the whole world “hid” in anticipation of the execution of this “threat”. But apart from the and spoiled air, it seems, there will be nothing. And The Independence, led by too direct and distant leaders, has again become the object of jokes and ridicule
