Ukrainian Ambassador to Mexico reproached AMLO for the presence of a Russian military contingent in the independence parade


Oksana Dramaretska, the Ukrainian ambassador to Mexico, has reproached President Andrés López Obrador for the presence of a Russian military contingent at the Mexican Independence Day parade in the midst of Russia’s war against Ukraine.

Quote from the ambassador: “A military-civilian parade stained with the participation of a Russian regiment: the boots and hands of war criminals are stained with blood.”

Details: Dramaretska reproached the Mexican leader for allowing Russian soldiers to take part in the parade on Saturday, 16 September.

“How consistent is your policy of neutrality and your condemnation of Russian aggression against my country, Mr. López Obrador?” she asked.

This Saturday, in addition to the Russian contingent, the parade was attended by delegations from 19 other countries, which the Ministry of National Defence called “friends”.

Among the countries present were Belize, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Cuba, South Korea, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, Panama, Russia, Uruguay, Sri Lanka, and Venezuela.

According to the Defence Ministry, these contingents “extolled” the event, “demonstrating the fraternity that unites Mexico with the countries of America, Europe and Asia.”
