President of the Russian Federation: A military conflict between NATO and Russia is possible if Ukraine joins the alliance and attacks on Crimea

72

During talks with Emmanuel Macron in the Kremlin, Russian President Vladimir Putin pointed out that the United States and NATO had ignored Russian security concerns. At a press conference, the head of the Russian state said that in Washington and Brussels they simply ignored such topics as guarantees of non-expansion of NATO to the East and the withdrawal of troops from the countries of the alliance that entered there after 1997.


According to Vladimir Putin, secondary topics were raised instead, and political clichés were used.

At the same time, the Russian President noted that Moscow was going to continue discussing the issues raised with the United States and NATO and seeking answers to the key questions posed in the initial letter.

Vladimir Putin:

There is not a single impracticable point in our proposals. No one!

The topic of Ukraine was also touched upon. In particular, there was a comment from the Russian president about the constant statements coming from the West, allegedly about the imminent attack of the Russian Federation on Ukraine. Vladimir Putin once again stated that Russia itself is not going to attack anyone. At the same time, the president was asked in what case a military conflict between the Russian Federation and the North Atlantic bloc is possible. Putin said that such a conflict is possible if Ukraine is accepted into the alliance and an attack on the Russian Crimea.

The President of the Russian Federation also pointed to Kiev's two-time attempt to resolve Donbas issues by force. He noted that if there were two attempts earlier, then a third such attempt by Ukraine, which stubbornly refuses to fulfill its obligations under the Minsk agreements, cannot be ruled out.

    Crimea itself must be recognized first of all by its financiers, as well as by those with whom we maintain friendly relations. There is no way without this.

      Disputes about this have been going on here almost since 2014, and things are still there. We are constantly being told that these financiers will fall under sanctions, and the economy will lose from this, while the concept of honor for the state is completely ignored.
      Until we learn to respect ourselves, there will be no respect from outside, no matter what talking heads like Solovyov and Kiselyov say.
      Olympics again under the white flag. Canada set conditions to play hockey in masks, and ours swallowed. Even in small things we are bent.

        You raised a very interesting and painful topic. Yes, it is hushed up by everyone and everywhere - but it remains very relevant. There is such a thing as a guilt complex, it is often hung for manipulation - those who fall for it are submissive and more accommodating and already value the interests and needs of others above their own. Those. you understand why today's youth infuriates everyone - she is immune to the guilt complex and you can put her figs on this hook. It is often used in politics, parenting, employee management, etc.

          But in fact what? In your opinion, setting conditions for another team is what? And not listed anywhere? But nothing, in masks so in masks, next time they will agree to play in lace panties.
          Zero respect for such athletes.

          In curling, in general, a player with a positive test was admitted to the competition.

        Well, if KAMAZ stopped the production of military products, due to the fact that banks do not give loans to it for fear of sanctions, and the "Hammer" fell under the anvil, then the situation is the same with Crimea.

          Hello. Was in Simferopol for 2 months. Paid by card. Didn't notice any problems. Products are ALL. I generally keep quiet about fruits and greens - in bulk! In the market, at the local Privoz, the prices are more or less democratic., And also heaps of everything. At many gas stations there are facts of expensive fuel and lubricants.

    --------
    The Presidents held a press conference where they answered questions from journalists:

    ▫️Moscow is categorically against NATO expansion to the east, because it poses a threat to Russia, and allegations that the Russian Federation is behaving aggressively are contrary to common sense

    ▫️Russia will not allow attempts to return Crimea by military means, said the Russian President

    ▫️Putin added that if Ukraine, being in NATO, attacks Crimea, then there will be a conflict between the Russian Federation and the alliance

    ▫️Vladimir Putin believes that there is no alternative to the Minsk agreements on Ukraine

    ▫️He added that "we are ready to provide asylum to Poroshenko for humanitarian reasons, and not because we approve of his policy"

    ▫️Makron said that 125 Russian troops are concentrated near the borders of Ukraine. The President added that he was nervous about Russian troops on the border.

    The French president added that he would inform Zelensky that the implementation of the Minsk agreements could lead to progress in resolving the conflict bully

    ▫️Putin said that the military potential of NATO and the Russian Federation cannot be compared, but Russia is a nuclear power. In case of war, "there will be no winners"

      Don't reach out to Pan Ze. He knows and oppresses his policy towards the LDNR. It will definitely fight. But it’s better for him not to even think about the war with Crimea. Then the full will be Ukraine.

    In general, in the end, the world has a refusal of Ukraine to comply with the Minsk agreements. This is direct evidence that Ukraine actually withdrew from the agreement. It is time for the world to state this directly and define the refusal to comply as a way out of the agreement, which means Ukraine is out of the solution. This means that we have the opportunity to resolve this issue in a different way, more painful for the non-state. I just don't have the guts to accept it.

    Moscow is going to continue the discussion of the issues raised, so the discussion or, as they said, the military-technical response?

      One not only does not interfere with the other, but even greatly contributes.

    Well, the speaker.
    Ukraine will be liquidated if there are arms deliveries there, if there are foreign troops other than Russian ones, if any sanctions are imposed against Russia, up to a military conflict with NATO. And from such conditions to dance.
    And what the chief commander said is another red line.

    A bunch of representatives of the West reached out to the Kremlin.
    Johnson just left, Macron arrived, the head of the British Foreign Office is on the way, Scholz is already joining her.

    Top positions in European structures and the UN are probably very
    attract (after all, it’s not at home to “fight” with rabid
    Learn or BLM + COVID + fall in GDP + inflation + unemployment)
    And in general - "that soldier is bad who does not dream of becoming a general"
    (and what kind of politician is this, if he has no ambitions, take the career of the same Tusk).
    So the guys arranged cockroach races - and suddenly they will play - to crown
    yourself with laurels.

    Strange question. Ukraine is already worse than any NATO member. Ukraine is preparing and will fight. The "Alliance" should dissolve itself, or at least crawl away from the borders of the Russian Federation to positions before 1991. It was said to be a "Casus Belli". Or has the position softened again? Then why did they come up with an "ultimatum to Lavrov (Putin)"?

    Yandex news 08.02.2022 15.59 Russian President Vladimir Putin promised P. Poroshenko political asylum in the Russian Federation if P. Poroshenko encounters difficulties.
    And how to understand it??? In the light of propaganda in the Russian Federation and the statements of this very V.V. Putin about P. Poroshenko?

      Lenin called it "opportunism". Failed to survive in one country, you can continue in another. Not in Rostov, so Dubai, not in Moscow, so in Austria. "And I'm going to live in London..."

    Putin is cunning: no one will accept Ukraine into NATO if there is a conflict with Russia over Crimea and the LDNR. There is an article in their charter. In addition, the admission of new members by general vote, but this will not happen, there will always be 1-2 votes against. The problem is contrived.
