Russia.- The President of Russia, Vladimir Putindenied on Thursday that he intended to resort to nuclear weapons attacks in Ukraineon the other hand, asserted that the conflict continues due to the West’s efforts to ensure its world dominance.
In a conference with experts in international politics, Putin said it doesn’t make sense Russia attack Ukraine with nuclear weapons. “We don’t see the need for that. That makes no sense, neither political nor military.”
In a long speech full of criticism against Washington and other governments, Putin he accused the United States and its allies of trying to dictate their terms to other nations in a “dangerous, bloody and dirty” game of domination.
Putin, who ordered his troops to invade Ukraine on February 24, has previously tried to explain Western backing for Ukraine as part of allegedly broad efforts by Washington and its allies to enforce their style of world order.
He argued that the world has reached a tipping point, where “the West can no longer dictate its will to humanity, but is still trying to do so, and most nations no longer want to tolerate it.”
According to the russian presidentWestern policies will only foment more chaos, adding that “he who sows wind will reap storms.”
Putin stated that “humanity now faces a choice: pile up a burden of problems that will inevitably crush us all, or try to find solutions that may not be ideal, but work and could make the world more stable and secure.”
Putin said that Russia is not the enemy of the West, but that it will continue to oppose what it described as the dictates of the Western neoliberal elites, accusing them of trying to subjugate Russia.
