By Aaron Humes: The Russian Federation has been incredibly isolated in the more than 90 days since it invaded Ukraine near the end of February.
The invasion, as we reported at the time, was strongly condemned by the Government of Belize among many other nations, which in a statement described it аѕ “а blаtаnt brеасh оf іntеrnаtіоnаl lаw аnd оf оblіgаtіоnѕ undеr thе Unіtеd Nаtіоnѕ Сhаrtеr… аn unассерtаblе vіоlаtіоn оf Ukrаіnе’ѕ ѕоvеrеіgntу аnd tеrrіtоrіаl іntеgrіtу… аn аѕѕаult оn thе іntеrnаtіоnаl ѕуѕtеm іtѕеlf [thаt] саnnоt bе соuntеnаnсеd bу аnу реасе-lоvіng ѕtаtе…unјuѕtіfіеd аnd unрrоvоkеd…”.
Nonetheless, it appears Russia still counts Belize as a friend. On Saturday its Ministry of Foreign Affairs, via Twitter, cited “31 years of diplomatic relations between Russia and Belize. #Belize is our promising partner in the Latin American region. We keep working on unlocking the potential of our bilateral cooperation in various areas of mutual interest.
Notably, there has been no public response from Belmopan.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Eamon Courtenay said during a recent press conference that the United States has had to make moves to talk to Cuba and Venezuela concerning their assistance to Caribbean nations, especially in the area of energy and importation of petroleum products, otherwise “China will. Russia will.”
