The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has called for caution and to wait for the results of the investigation into the bombs that fell yesterday on Polish soil near the Ukrainian border and that caused the death of two people in order to avoid any type of war escalation.
The possibility that it was one of the many missiles launched yesterday from Russia against the Ukrainian energy network made Poland, a NATO member country, assemble its National Security and Defense Commission although Moscow denied any responsibility for the events.
In a press conference at the end of the G-20 summit in Bali (Indonesia), the head of the Spanish government called on people to be "very cautious, wait for the investigation, convey condolences and solidarity with Poland and demand the unity of the countries of the alliance". All this, he has said, to "not contribute to any type of escalation."
Sánchez has highlighted the consensual declaration between the leaders of the G-20 in which Putin's war against Ukraine is condemned and he has been convinced that the previous bilateral summit held by the president of the United States, Joe Biden, and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, helped to achieve this consensus. Among other aspects, Sánchez stressed that the declaration represents an "unequivocal condemnation of Putin's war of aggression" and confirms that Russia is the cause of the food and energy crisis. In addition, as he has pointed out, he recognizes that "the use of nuclear weapons or even the threat of using them is inadmissible."
All in all, and after the Russian missile attacks against Ukraine yesterday, Sánchez considered that "an immediate ceasefire does not appear to be part of Putin's plans", but he has advocated peace: "We want peace and that it be they respect the borders," he warned.
