Vitalik Buterin calls Putin’s war a crime against the Ukrainian and Russian people

    26 Feb 2022

    Ethereum co-creator Vitalik Buterin has criticized Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to attack Ukraine, calling it a “crime against the Ukrainian and Russian people.” On February 24, the Russian armed forces launched a “special military operation” in Ukraine that could disturb the peace on the continent.

    Buterin, who was born in Russia and grew up in Canada, said on Twitter that he was very upset by Putin’s decision to go to war by abandoning the possibility of a peaceful solution to the dispute with Ukraine.

    Vitalik Buterin criticized this act, calling it “a crime against the Ukrainian and Russian people.” Despite being born in Russia, the 28-year-old programmer ended his speech with the words, “Glory to Ukraine.”

    In his latest tweet, Vitalik Buterin said he was “very upset” by Vladimir Putin’s decision to start a war with Ukraine. In his opinion, the military operation will lead to devastating consequences for both the citizens of Ukraine and Russia.

    “I want to wish everyone security, although I know that there will be no security,” the Ethereum co-founder added. “Glory to Ukraine.”

    Moreover, he stated that while Ethereum is neutral, he is not.

    Buterin’s statement comes after Putin said late Wednesday night that Russia’s armed forces would carry out a “special military operation” in Ukraine.

    The growing tension between the two nations has caused massive disruptions in the cryptocurrency and financial markets. Bitcoin has plunged to nearly $34,000, while most altcoins were deep in the red as well.

    Digital asset market capitalization has fallen below $1.6 trillion, which means it has decreased by around $200 billion.

    It is not yet known how “great nations” will approach armed conflict. US President Joe Biden called Russia’s attack “unprovoked and unjustified.” He also warned Putin of “further consequences” if the aggression continues soon.

    Boris Johnson – the Prime Minister of Great Britain – also sided with Ukraine. He said Britain would provide a military support package to the attacked nation and impose severe sanctions on Russia.
