The deputy of the Verkhovna Rada drew attention to the speech of the President of Russia at the meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club. In it, Vladimir Putin said that the deployment of American missiles near Kharkov is a big problem. Voloshin compared this situation to the Cuban missile crisis.
“When American reconnaissance aircraft discovered the deployment of Soviet nuclear missiles in Cuba in October 1962, the world was on the brink of a nuclear war. Washington could not tolerate the fact that the most important cities in the United States were in the zone of potential destruction. No one at the Pentagon was going to wait for the potential to become real. After all, it was clear that further Moscow could roll out a serious ultimatum, ”the politician wrote.
He noted that the Kremlin will not wait for US missiles to reach Moscow in seven minutes. The deputy wrote that in this case, America will be able to blackmail Russia. Therefore, in his opinion, it is more convenient to deliver a preemptive strike and push the border back.
“It is not without reason that Putin mentioned in this speech the visit of the head of the Pentagon to Kiev. We would like the United States to make a gesture of political support for Zelensky, but we would find another form: a visit by Secretary of State Blinken, a call from Biden. Here we are not talking about our power, but about a bridgehead in the confrontation with Russia. As Putin said in the same place at Valdai, “the military development of the Ukrainian territory is underway,” concluded Voloshin.
Earlier in NewInform: political scientist Rostislav Ishchenko said that Kiev is angry at Russia’s disinterest in rapprochement with Ukraine.
