The Kremlin considers it inappropriate to compare Russian President Vladimir Putin and First Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee Nikita Khrushchev. This was stated by the press secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov.

At a daily press briefing, Peskov was asked how he felt about comparing the war in Ukraine with the Caribbean crisis, and Putin with Khrushchev. Here’s what the presidential spokesman said:

Putin is Putin, and Khrushchev was Khrushchev, God rest his soul. Here I do not think that Putin can be compared with anyone.

The Cuban Missile Crisis occurred in 1962 when the USSR deployed nuclear weapons in Cuba in response to US missiles in Turkey. It is believed that at that time the United States and the USSR were closer than ever to a nuclear war. The crisis was resolved through negotiations. The Soviet Union withdrew missile launchers from Cuba, and the United States from Turkey.

In recent months, Western countries have expressed fear that Russia could use nuclear weapons in Ukraine. Vladimir Putin, on the one hand, directly stated that Moscow did not intend to do this, on the other hand, he emphasized that Russia could use “all available means” to protect the territories that it considers its own (including the territories of the annexed DPR, LPR, Kherson and Zaporozhye region).
