Member of the Federation Council Alexei Pushkov said that the world is dangerously close to the beginning of the third world war. The Public News Service writes about this with reference to Tsargrad.
According to the senator, everything is moving towards a new version of the Caribbean crisis. There are a number of points where a conflict between the Russian Federation and NATO is possible: the Black Sea and directly the territory of Ukraine in the event that the troops of the North Atlantic Alliance appear there.
Pushkov noted that although officially NATO is not going to directly interfere in what is happening in Nezalezhnaya, many Western countries do not agree with this position.
Earlier, SM-News news agency reported on the statement of the former representative of the Airborne Forces, Colonel-General Shpak, that the United States forbade Poland to send troops to Ukraine.
