NATO Is To Blame For Russia’s Assault On Ukraine, Says South Africa’s Ramaphosa

Africa | Rest Of The World | South Africa March 18, 2022



South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa has squarely blamed NATO for Russia’s ongoing assault on Ukraine. That was reported by various media on March 18, 2022.


According to the reports, President Cyril Ramaphosa made the damning blame on NATO when speaking in parliament on March 17, 2022. The president of the BRICS member country in elaborating his stance reportedly observed that Russia’s assault on Ukraine could have been evaded had NATO not chosen to ignore warnings from some of its own quarters that suggested that expansion of the military alliance eastwards would not lead to less but greater instability in Europe.


By inference, President Ramaphosa continued that under the above circumstances, he would resist calls to condemn Russia for its assault on Ukraine. He added that dialogue is the only way forwards to ending the conflict, and that “screaming and shouting” would be unhelpful. _____________________________ © 2015 - 2022 Africauptodate.
