ARAB UNIFICATION PARTY ISSUES CLARIFICATION STATEMENT OVER WAHHAB’S WORDS IN RUSSIAN, UKRAINIAN ISSUE

The Media Secretariat of the "Arab Unification Party" issued a statement this evening, in response to what was circulated by some social media sites about the Party's leader, Wiam Wahhab, during a television interview, and his words on the Russian and Ukrainian issue, whereby the statement clarified that “what the Party leader was referring to was actually the Russian and Ukrainian beauty and nothing else,” adding, “For our part, we appreciate the struggle of Russian women throughout history in the face of the Nazi occupation, up to the wars that Russia fought in Syria and worldwide."

The statement described the Russian women as "first-class women, who deserve our admiration and love and have occupied the highest positions in state institutions, the army and Russian society."

"All appreciation and respect to both the Russian and Ukrainian women,” the statement reiterated, expressing readiness for any apology in case former Minister Wahhab's words were misunderstood.
