Schwarzenegger – Europeans: Buying energy resources from the Russian Federation, you pay for the war

Actor and former governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger criticized the Europeans for being continue to buy Russian energy resources, thus financing the war against Ukraine. The video of the star's speech at the Austrian World Summit climate conference was posted on Twitter by the adviser to the head of the Presidential Chamber, Mikhail Podolyak.

– Look at the tragedy in Ukraine. We're all horrified by what we see on the news every night, but let's be honest. The 1,300 missiles that Russia fired in the first two months of the war against Ukraine cost 7.7 billion euros. During the same time, Europe paid Russia 44 billion euros for energy, Schwarzenegger said.

He added that the Russians are “of course upset that they are losing all their soldiers and so much equipment, tanks, planes and other things.”

– But they say: “Hey, at least we don't have to pay for this war. The Europeans send us money. They pay for the war.” No matter how you look at it, there is blood on our hands, because we are financing the war. We must stop lying to ourselves. We now have all the necessary technology to make fossil fuels a thing of the past,” the actor said.

He stressed that Europeans owe a debt to Ukrainian children in bomb shelters and should do everything possible to get rid of our dependence on fossil fuels fuel.

– We should be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Defeat is not an option here,” Schwarzenegger concluded.

In response to these words, Podolyak called for Ukraine to be provided with the necessary weapons to fight the Russian invaders.

Schwarzenegger is not the first to speak out about the war unleashed by the Russian Federation in Ukraine. Back in March, the actor turned to the Russians with a request to open their eyes and understand that the authorities are lying to them.
