Vitalik Buterin speaks out against invasion of Ukraine and calls military action a “crime”

Following the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum, criticized that act calling it a “crime against the Ukrainian and Russian people.” Despite being born in Russia, the 28-year-old programmer ended his statement by saying, “Glory to Ukraine.”

In his most recent tweet, Vitalik Buterin said he is “very upset” about Vladimir Putin’s decision to go to war against Ukraine.

In his opinion, the military operation will have devastating consequences for both Ukrainian and Russian citizens.

The Ethereum co-creator is also pessimistic that the conflict will be resolved diplomatically. “I know there will be no security,” he predicted gloomily.

Born in Russia, Buterin seems to oppose his homeland in this war dispute and adds “Glory to Ukraine” at the end of his tweet. He further stated that while Ethereum is neutral, he is not.

The growing tension between the two nations has caused major disruption in the financial and cryptocurrency markets

Bitcoin, for example, plummeted to nearly $34,000, while most altcoins are also in the red.

The market capitalization of the digital asset market fell below $1.6 trillion, which means it has declined by approximately $200 billion since yesterday.

For his part, U.S. President Joe Biden called Russia’s attack “unprovoked and unjustified.” He also warned Putin of “further consequences” if the aggression is not stopped soon.

Boris Johnson, the UK prime minister, also backed Ukraine. He said Britain will provide a military support package to the attacked nation and impose tough sanctions on Russia.
