As the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin has declared war on Ukraine, most of the leaders all over the world have condemned his unprovoked and unjustified attack.

In a Twitter post last night (24 February) that has since been deleted, Prime Minister Dato Seri Ismail Sabri had voiced out his hope for a peaceful resolution immediately between Russia & Ukraine. His tweet was immediately met with criticisms from netizens who claim Sabri to be “too soft” in voicing out.

A netizen had compared his tweet to Anwar Ibrahim’s statement on the matter, which is stern and clear in condemning Russia’s attack on Ukraine.

However, one of Sabri’s tweets which remains undeleted, highlights that actions are being taken to ensure the safety of the Malaysians in Kyiv, Ukraine.

“The Malaysian Embassy in Kyiv is providing shelter for the Malaysians before they can return home,” Sabri tweeted.

Still, his tweet sparked fury among the netizens who were not fond of his slow response towards the situation.

“Some embassies over there have moved the people of their country away from Ukraine way before the invasion. Our PM? He’s only rushing to do so when invasion has taken place.”

“Why didn’t you give the order earlier? Why now? Are you going to appoint another advisor?”

“Issuing statement at 7 PM today (24 February)? The war had already started earlier.”

“2 weeks prior to the 1st bomb, that’s called protection & providing shelter. Not when the bombs have dropped. Were you not aware of the situation between these 2 countries earlier?”

Friend or foe?

In the meantime, a netizen has also questioned the PM on the absence of his statement about the actions of the Russian government.

“No official statement to condemn the actions of the Russian government? Or are you on board with them?”

We pray for the safety of the people in Russia & Ukraine. What do you think about the PM’s tweet?
