Imam Khamenei: Ukraine victim of US policies, urges end to war
Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Imam Ali Khamenei, has underlined that Iran has always opposed war and destruction anywhere in the world, urging an end to the war in Ukraine.
Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks during a televised speech on the auspicious occasion of Eid al-Mab’ath – the anniversary of the appointment of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) to prophethood.
He slammed the United States as a mafia regime, saying Ukraine has fallen victim to the US's policies and the crises created by Washington.
“The US disrupted the stability of the country by interfering in its affairs and organizing rallies and creating a color coup,” he said.
“We oppose the killing of people and the destruction of the infrastructure of nations,” he added.
He highlighted that Western powers cannot be trusted and their support for their puppet regimes is not genuine.
Both Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and former Afghan president Ashraf Ghani have acknowledged that the US simply abandoned them amid their domestic crises, Ayatollah Khamenei said.
The Leader also called the US a perfect example and manifestation of modern ignorance, saying it feeds on the crises it makes all around the world. He said Western nations use science to slaughter and plunder other nations.
