Cyprus expresses its full support to Brazil and its President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, in a message posted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Twitter following Sunday’s attack on government buildings by supporters loyal to former President, Jair Bolsonaro.

Thousands of people ransacked Brazil’s Congress, the Supreme Court and the presidential palace, causing damages. Brazilian authorities arrested many protesters while several countries around the world already condemned the attack.

“Cyprus expresses its full support to President Lula, his government and the democratic will of the people of Brazil”, reads the message of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. “Violence and extremism have not and will not prevail”, it adds, saying that “democracies around the world stand with Brazil and its people.”
