Following the CiCA Summit on October 14, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that it would be unwise to commit NATO soldiers into a direct battle with Russia and may lead to a “global disaster.”
Putin responded that it “would be a hazardous act that may result in a global catastrophe” when asked if NATO would send soldiers to Ukraine if it was about to lose a fight with Russia. The Russian leader stated, “I trust that those who talk about this will have enough intelligence to stop such a disastrous act from occurring.
President Putin also reaffirmed the significance of comprehending what “defeat” in the Ukrainian conflict entails.
Putin noted that various people may interpret this in many different ways and that some may view Crimea’s 2014 referendum to join Russia as a failure on the part of Ukraine.
The West has provided billions of dollars in military and financial support to Ukraine since the conflict broke out in late February 2022, while the US has pledged to support Kiev “for as long as possible” to defeat Moscow.
Meanwhile, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has repeatedly asserted that the military alliance “is not a party to the conflict” in Ukraine. This week, however, Jens Stoltenberg conceded that a Russian victory would also be seen as a “failure” for the West as a whole and acknowledged that NATO provided “unprecedented support” to Kiev to avoid the above scenario happen.
Mr. Jens Stoltenberg’s comments were nothing more than “public confirmation that NATO is part of the conflict”, said Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Security Council Dmitry Medvedev.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky this week once again asked for billions of dollars from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the International Bank (WB), as well as asking the West to support more anti-aircraft weapons to continue. continue to fight Russia.
Moscow has long warned against Western arms supplies to Ukraine, saying the move would only prolong the conflict and increase the risk of direct confrontation between Russia and NATO.
