(Reuters) – President Jair Bolsonaro said on Monday that Ukrainians would be allowed to enter Brazil on humanitarian visas.
“I’m just talking to Carlos Franka. We’re going to open up the possibility for Ukrainians to come to Brazil on a human visa, and it’s easy to get here,” Bolsonaro said in an interview with Joam Pan’s Os Pingos Nose. To the Minister of External Affairs.
Brazil has taken similar steps in cases involving Haitian immigrants, Syrian refugees and, more recently, Afghans.
In the interview, Bolsonaro again defended Brazil’s neutrality during the Russian occupation of Ukraine and claimed economic problems. In the opinion of the President, Brazil is a country with “certain limitations” and must “continue to pursue a policy of sorting out all.”
“We are working with our ambassador, so we are not one of the few who affect Brazil on this issue. Our agricultural business, the engine of our economy, how are we? How is our food security? Because without fertilizers we will lose productivity and apparently production will go down, ”he said.
Russia is one of the world’s largest producers of fertilizers and is currently experiencing an international shortage. During his visit two weeks ago, efforts to secure supplies to Brazil were one of the main topics of conversation with the Russian government.
“We do not want the ship to be wrecked on the agribusiness issue. On the other hand, we intend to resolve it peacefully. We need to study what happened in the past in both countries. I’m not going to make any guesses on this issue, “he said.
