An armored personnel carrier is seen during tactical exercises, which are conducted by the Ukrainian National Guard, Armed Forces, special operations units and simulate a crisis situation in an urban settlement, in the abandoned city of Pripyat near the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, Ukraine February 4, 2022.

The Russian Federation’s special military operation in Ukraine aims to stop the deployment of NATO military bases in Ukraine so as not to occupy its territory, Russian Ambassador to Bangladesh Alexander Mantytskiy has said.

The Russian envoy on Sunday (March 13) wrote to Bangladeshi media explaining the country’s “aims and tasks” in the ongoing military engagement and refuted the “anti-Russian propaganda spread by news agencies Western media, as well as European and American media”. publication.”

Alexander Mantytskiy also criticized “some” local media for having “a biased approach to the situation in Ukraine and Russia’s actions there”.

He said this was due to “deliberate efforts by the forces which have always sought to undermine the mutually beneficial cooperation between the Russian Federation and Bangladesh”.

According to the open letter, the objectives of the Russian army are to

  • Protect Russian-speaking civilians in Ukraine subjected to genocide by the Kiev regime for eight years;
  • Eliminate neo-fascism;
  • Prevent the development of nuclear weapons in Ukraine;
  • Stop the deployment of NATO military bases in Ukraine.

In the meantime, the tasks consist of

  • Demilitarize and denazify Ukraine (to free it from Nazi ideology);
  • Put an end to the neo-fascism that emerged in Ukraine after being defeated in the Great Patriotic War;
  • Eliminate military threats on the border of the Russian Federation;
  • Disarming aggressive entities of Ukraine, posing a threat to peaceful coexistence;
  • Identify and punish persons who have committed crimes against the civilian population of Ukraine and citizens of the Russian Federation through legal proceedings in the courts of the Russian Federation.

The letter reads: “To carry out the declared objectives and tasks, in accordance with Article 51 (Chapter VII) of the Charter of the United Nations, with the authorization of the Parliament of the Russian Federation, and in application of the treaties of friendship and mutual assistance with the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Lugansk People’s Republic, ratified on February 22, Moscow launched a special military operation.

“We do not plan to occupy Ukrainian territory. We are not at war with the Ukrainian people. We do not intend to impose anything on anyone by force. has become a direct security threat to Russia. »

“It is a fact that over the past 30 years we have patiently tried to reach an agreement with the main NATO countries on the principles of equal and indivisible security in Europe. In response to our proposals , we have invariably been met with either cynical deception or lies or attempts at pressure and blackmail, as the North Atlantic alliance continued to expand despite our protests and concerns, its military machine closing in on our even border.

“Despite all of this, in December 2021, we made another attempt to reach an agreement with the United States and its allies on the principles of European security and the non-expansion of NATO. Our efforts have been The United States has not changed its position,” he adds.

Alexander Mantytskiy writes: “Ultimately, NATO demanded that Ukraine be free to join the bloc, naval bases were being established in Ukraine and the deployment of missiles, which posed a direct threat to the Russian Federation, was discussed and it was even suggested that Ukraine should give up its non-nuclear status.

“During the special military operation, the Russian Ministry of Defense got hold of documents confirming that Ukraine has developed a network of at least 30 biological laboratories and research centers in Kiev, Lvov, Kharkov, Dnipro, Kherson, Ternopol, Uzhgorod, Vinnytsia funded by the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), among others for the benefit of the Pentagon’s National Center for Medical Intelligence.”

“The research results were sent to US military biological centers, including the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, Walter Reed Army Research Institute, Medical Research U.S. Naval and U.S. Army Biological Warfare Laboratories at Fort Detrick, which were once key hubs for the U.S. biological weapons program.

“The mentioned Ukrainian research establishments house extremely dangerous biological experiments, aimed at enhancing the pathogenic properties of plague, anthrax, tularemia, cholera, as well as studying the possibilities of the spread of particularly dangerous infections by migratory birds, including the highly pathogenic H5N1 influenza (killing humans in 50% of cases) and Newcastle disease with the help of synthetic biology Priority has been given to the study of pathogens bacteria and viruses transmissible from bats to humans: pathogens of plague, leptospirosis, brucellosis, as well as coronaviruses and filoviruses,” the Russian envoy added.

“The West continues to take very dangerous measures to encourage the supply of deadly weapons to Ukraine, including thousands of MANPADS, which can be taken anywhere and fired at any target” “shoulder” by terrorists. Where will these thousands of MANPADS end up? How will these MANPADS be controlled later? Those who supply arms to Ukraine must understand that they bear responsibility for their actions.

“For years we have been trying to draw attention to Ukraine’s transformation into ‘anti-Russia’. Since the early 2000s, the West has openly demanded Ukraine before every election to make a choice between the West and Russia.

“We don’t want Ukraine to become a neo-Nazi state where battalions wearing SS stripes parade in front of the Ukrainian president and where these militants are trained to organize terrorist attacks.

“I would like to respond to those who predict Russia’s economic collapse and question whether to strengthen cooperation between Russia and Bangladesh, between two friendly and brotherly countries: Russia will manage and solve economic problems. We have encountered difficulties at all stages of our I can assure you that this time we will emerge from the crisis with a healthier state of mind and mentality. We will no longer have the illusion that the West can be a reliable partner who does not abandon anyone and its own values ​​at the whim of a hat. And we will also do everything in our power to never depend on the West in areas of critical importance for our people”, a- he added.

“I would like to say that I regard the biased approach of some Bangladeshi media towards the situation in Ukraine and Russia’s actions there as the result of deliberate efforts by those forces which have always sought to undermine the mutually beneficial cooperation between the Russian Federation and the People’s Rally Republic of Bangladesh, which started 50 years ago. Back then in 1971, it took Bangladeshis 8 months to overthrow, with the active support of the India and the USSR, the domination of non-Bengali teachers, to end the harassment, discrimination and violence against Bengalis, so that they can finally enjoy the right to speak their mother tongue.

“The Russian-speaking people of Donbass in eastern Ukraine have been struggling for the same right for 8 years, while suffering from the genocide unleashed by the Kiev regime. The time has come for Russia to come to the rescue again , for the same cause, to guarantee the right to speak the mother tongue and to put an end to discrimination based on language”.

“I hope that through my open letter, your readers will be able to get acquainted with another point of view on the developments around Ukraine”, concluded Alexander Mantytskiy.
