Janis Varoufakis spoke on MERA radio about the decision of British Home Secretary Priti Patel to extradite Julian Assange to the United States.
The general secretary of the MERA25 party stated that those who today condemn Putin’s war crimes in Ukraine are the same people who not only committed war crimes and are doing it every day at this time in the Sahel, Yemen, Palestine, but also persecute people who opened our eyes to what is being done on our behalf behind our backs.
Janis Varoufakis also noted that all this testifies not only that there is a problem of democracy, but also that today there is practically no democracy, and the oligarchic system makes it clear to Putin that the key is not to commit war crimes, but to be able to prosecute those who expose them. “This is the message: kill whoever you want, drop as many bombs as you want, the main thing is not to get caught and not let anyone reveal what you are doing, and if anyone dares to do this, sentence him to 175 years in a black box”said the leader of MERA25.
Janis Varoufakis also stressed that this message is a manifestation of hypocrisy on the part of those who today are tearing their clothes and shouting in support of Ukrainians who have become victims of the war. But in fact he says: “Kill as many as you can until you get caught.” The message that Britain and the West are sending today.
The Secretary General of MERA25 also urged people to send letters to the British Prime Minister, as the extradition of Julian Assange to the US would be a big blow to the image of the British Republic. At the same time, he stressed that recently demonstrations in support of Julian Assange have become more frequent and more massive in England, but they should become even more massive, because, as Yiannis Varoufakis characteristically concluded: “first they came for Julian, then they They will come for you, whoever you are.”
