The war in the Donbas and the annexation of the Crimea had for Vladimir Putin is no sacred significance
That actually prompted the Russian President to invade Ukraine, in an interview to OBOZREVATEL said Russian political analyst Stanislav Belkovsky.
He argues that Putin decided to invade Ukraine only because of the confrontation with the then President of the United States Barack Obama.
“Aggression in Ukraine, Putin wanted to show that he could do the same as Obama. It was his psychological competition, if you’re so cool in the world, I’m cool. But the question to Obama, whether he would take military decisions against the return of Crimea, he replied that he was more worried about a bomb in Manhattan. Obama it was important to avoid attacks from Putin using nuclear weapons on the territory of America, and Ukraine is not too worried,” — says Belkovsky.
However, in his opinion, the war launched by Putin in Ukraine did not help him in the confrontation with the United States.
“The present story is the third (self -) destruction of Putin. He always wins on the destruction of the systems that serves. Won the collapse of the Soviet Union, becoming the first Deputy mayor of St Petersburg. After the collapse of Anatoly Sobchak and Putin became President of Russia. But now because of his actions is the collapse of Russia and it is an unconscious choice Putin himself. As they say, “going to die salute you.” Russia is under sanctions and is on the verge of collapse,” — said the analyst.
We will remind, earlier it was reported that Putin is ready to hold new phase of the war in Ukraine.
Such opinion in interview to journalists told the Deputy head Minot Georgy Tuka.
According to him, Russia has deployed to the Ukrainian border a huge number of army and weapons, so it is not excluded that Vladimir Putin is preparing once again to invade the territory of Ukraine.
Tuck argues that the President of the aggressor country Vladimir Putin may wait for an opportune moment — please some occupied the Ukrainian area of joining of the Russian Federation.
We will remind, the issuance of passports of the Russian Federation in the Donbas: Tsymbalyuk called the main mistake Putin.
