Speaking to RTS public radio on Wednesday, the ambassador to Ukraine again tried to clarify Bern's policy, saying that when it comes to a situation like the current one, Switzerland “is not neutral: we apply neutrality law, that's different”.

Concretely, the ambassador said, this means Switzerland“does not join a military alliance, and does not send weapons to the conflict zone, even to support the victims”. But when it comes to values and interests, Switzerland is not neutral:“we stand clearly behind the Ukrainian position”.
