Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Oleh Nikolenko reacted to Qatar's statement condemning the attack on the Kremlin by unidentified drones on May 3.

He asked why Qatar did not issue a similar statement regarding the Russian massive attack on civilians in Kherson that took place on the same day.

"I wonder if anyone can find a statement by the Qatari Foreign Ministry condemning the latest Russian missile attack on Kherson, which killed 21 civilians and wounded 48 others? Or does this act of state terrorism have less impact on efforts to resolve the "crisis" peacefully?" the diplomat wrote.

The day before, the Qatari Foreign Ministry condemned the Kremlin's drone attack, noting that such actions would lead to the expansion of the Russian-Ukrainian "crisis." The statement was published on the website of the Qatari diplomatic mission.

"The State of Qatar reiterates its call to resolve the Russian-Ukrainian crisis through dialogue and diplomatic means, to settle international disputes by peaceful means, and not to take actions that will lead to further escalation. Escalatory measures, such as the recent attack on the Kremlin building in the Russian capital, Moscow, will lead to an escalation of violence and the continuation and expansion of the crisis," the statement said.

Qatar also warned of "the dangerous consequences of these hostilities for efforts to peacefully resolve the crisis."

Background. As a reminder, the White House has responded to Moscow's statements about the alleged involvement of the United States in the drone attack on the Kremlin.
