Bongbong Marcos wants everyone to know he now cares about Ukraine

He also wants an “observance of human rights,” something his dictator of a father never did

Presidential aspirant Bongbong Marcos has suddenly switched his stance on the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

In a statement, Marcos called on Russia to consider its invasion of Ukraine.

“I appeal for sobriety to prevail, for a peaceful resolution to the ongoing armed conflict as I stand united with the rest of the world for Russia to respect Ukraine’s freedom and its citizens’ democratic way of life,” Marcos said in a statement.

He also wants an “observance of human rights,” something his dictator of a father never did.

“I support the unconditional observance of human rights and fervently hope that there will be no more targeting of civilian communities and civilian establishments,” he added.

However, he earlier said that Filipinos shouldn’t worry about what’s happening to European countries.

“I don’t think there is a need to make a stand. We are not involved, except for our nationals,” Marcos said.

Marcos only switched up his stance after millions of Filipinos supported a ceasefire.

Marcos’ running mate, vice presidential candidate, and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio shared the same sentiment, saying that the Philippines must remain “neutral” on the issue.

This isn’t the first time the dictator’s son flip-flopped. He previously expressed disinterest in releasing his statement of assets, liabilities, and net worth (SALN). After being accused of stealing from the people, Marcos changed his tune.

“I was talking about my own SALN. I’m perfectly willing to release it,” he said during an appearance on One PH’s “Sa Totoo Lang.”
