Ukraine: Charles III. condemns the"large unprovoked attack" from Russia

The British monarch emerged from his reticence on Friday to express his support for the Ukrainian people on the first anniversary of Russia’s offensive.

King Charles III on Friday denounced “the unnecessary suffering” inflicted on Ukraine by Russia’s “large-scale unprovoked attack” a year ago, exceptionally stepping out of the reserve imposed on British sovereigns.

“It has now been a year since the Ukrainian people suffered unimaginably from a full-scale, unprovoked attack on their nation,” the monarch said in a statement.

“(The Ukrainian people) have shown remarkable courage and resilience in the face of such a human tragedy,” he added.

A year of war

This speech was given on the occasion of the first anniversary of the Russian invasion, which began on February 24, 2022.

This is not the first time that Charles III. expressed its support for Ukraine in the face of the Russian offensive. On February 8, the King of England notably received Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy for a visit to London.

In addition, on Monday, the monarch paid a visit to Ukrainian soldiers training with the British army and expressed his “admiration” for the first anniversary.

“You are amazing, I don’t know how you do it, I’m full of admiration,” he told an official.
