López Obrador added that he has not had any rapprochement with Russian President Vladimir Putin nor with Ukraine’s president, Volodimir Zelenski. “We don’t get involved,” he sentenced.

The leftist president also expressed his disagreement with the “censorship” of the Russian media.

“I do not agree with the fact that the media in Russia or in any country is censored. We have to assert freedom”, López Obrador abounded.

The YouTube channels of the Russian media RT and Sputnik were blocked throughout Europe on Tuesday “as a result of the ongoing war in Ukraine,” spokesmen for the platform told AFP. Facebook, meanwhile, also decided to block both channels in European Union countries on Monday.

And the state telecommunications company of Uruguay removed RT from the grid of its digital platform on Tuesday for justifying “Russia’s violent military invasion of Ukraine.”

The Mexican leader insisted that his government is “against the invasions of Russia, China, the United States” and that his country has already established a position in the United Nations Security Council, where it is a non-permanent member.

“We are promoting for humanitarian aid to reach Ukraine through the UN, but we can no longer, we cannot fall into a leading role that has nothing to do with the restraint that must prevail in foreign policy,” said López Obrador.

On Monday, the president had also ruled out closing Mexico’s airspace to Russian airlines, of which Aeroflot has maintained a direct flight between Moscow and Cancun (southeast), in the Mexican Caribbean, since last November.

In Latin America, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro expressed his “strong support” for Vladimir Putin on Tuesday during a phone call with the Russian leader, in which he condemned “the destabilizing activity of the United States and NATO.”
