Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on Tuesday called diplomacy the best way to end the conflict in Ukraine.

In his address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York, Bolsonaro said the first step towards lasting peace must be “an immediate ceasefire, protection of civilians and bomb-free people, conservation of critical infrastructure to support the people.”

Bolsonaro said Brazil does not see sanctions against Russia as a viable way to end the seven-month conflict that began after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“We do not believe that the best course of action is to impose unilateral and selective sanctions that are inconsistent with international law. These measures have harmed the economic recovery and threatened human rights. of vulnerable populations, including in European countries,” Bolsonaro said.

“The solution to the conflict in Ukraine will only be achieved through negotiation and dialogue,” he said.

Some context: In April, Reuters report Russia asked Brazil to support the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the Group of 20 leading economies in the face of sanctions.

Bolsonaro, who has kept Brazil neutral during the Ukraine crisis, expressed “solidarity” when he visited Russian President Vladimir Putin on February 16, about a week before the invasion began. Brazilian Foreign Minister Carlos Franca earlier said Brazil opposes the expulsion of Russia from the G20.
