(Reuters) – President Jair Bolsonaro said on Monday he would allow Ukrainians to enter Brazil on humanitarian visas.
Bolsonaro said in an interview with Jovem Pan’s Os Pingos nos Is, referring to the foreign minister.
Brazil has already taken similar measures in other cases, such as Haitian immigrants, Syrian refugees, and most recently Afghans.
In the interview, Bolsonaro once again defended Brazil’s neutrality amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine and claimed economic issues. According to the president, Brazil is a country that has “some limitations” and needs to “continue the policy of getting close to everyone”.
We are working with our ambassador so that Brazil is not one of the few affected by this. Our agricultural business is the engine of our economy, how are we? How is our food security? Because without fertilizers, we lose productivity, and obviously there will be less and less production,” he said.
Russia is one of the world’s largest producers of fertilizers, a product that is currently facing international shortages. On his trip two weeks ago, trying to secure supplies for Brazil was one of the main topics of talks with the Russian government.
“We do not want to get bogged down in the agribusiness issue and intend to resolve the other side peacefully. You have to study what happened to both countries in the past. I will not make any assumptions about this issue.”
