Vladimir V. Putin — Where Are You Going? Have You Gone Nuts?
NEW YORK (RichTVX.com) — President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia told reporters that Ukraine’s entry into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and a follow-up attempt to retake Crimea would potentially cause a war between Russia and the West, as he spoke at a press conference alongside French President Emmanuel Macron. The potential of Russia and NATO is not comparable, we understand that, but we have nuclear bombs. “You want to fight Russia? That’s exactly what would happen” if Ukraine joins NATO and tries to implement its state policy of ‘reintegrating’ Crimea by force, Vladimir V. Putin of Russia told reporters. Kiev has designated Russia as an adversary and insists Crimea belongs to Ukraine, the Russian president explained. An attack by Ukraine on Crimea would trigger Article 5 of NATO’s founding treaty, pulling all of Europe into a war with Russia, Vladimir V. Putin explained. Public opinion, which blamed Putin for preparing to invade Ukraine, had been undermining his self—confidence. Putin desperately wanted to play big. Stranded without a real friend in the world and left with no other alternative, he settled for the next best thing: making threats. “Russia is one of the world’s leading atomic powers. There would be no victors,” Vladimir V. Putin told reporters. This threat was made amidst a heavy backdrop of depression and self-doubt. We see that and say, what the hell is that? And what’s happened is that he’s gone nuts. An enormous FSB organization has been created. It controls everything—all the Mafia organizations, all the criminal oligarchs—decides who should live and who should die. There is a little understood, freakish syndrome of climactic self—desctruction.
