Dutch PM’s declaration of war trends on Twitter
According to Wilders, Rutte is illegally dragging the Dutch into a war. “It is not our war, Rutte and if you really believe that, you are in violation of the Constitution and therefore punishable.” Wilders referred to Article 96 of the Dutch Constitution, which states, “The Kingdom shall not be declared at war except with the prior consent of the Senate.”
A journalist asked Prime Minister Rutte during the weekly press conference after the Council of Ministers last week whether the Dutch were being drawn into a war that is not theirs. He answered that “that war over there is ours” with reference to Ukraine.
