Piontkovsky named 3 ways of “victory” that Putin hoped for/Collage of 24 channels

Everyone has long known that Russia uses dishonest methods of struggle to get what it wants. In particular, the president of the aggressor state, Vladimir Putin, also hoped that the old methods would help him.

Russian publicist Andrey Piontkovsky told Channel 24 about this. He told what cynical options the head of the Kremlin considered in order to win the war against Ukraine.

“Putin had 3 ways to win that he wanted to use. However, they did not work,” Piontkovsky said.

Blitzkrieg and Russian agents

According to the publicist, the first of them was “blitzkrieg”. That is, the technique that the Russians used in Czechoslovakia in 1068, when the troops of the USSR and allies overthrew the Czechoslovak government and occupied the country in order to stop the reforms of the Prague Spring.

They used aircraft, broke into the building of the Central Committee, arrested the leaders of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic and took them to Moscow. However, this tactic in Ukraine failed Putin.

The second is to use his agents of influence in the person of 3 leaders of powerful European states to force Ukraine into a humiliating agreement that will destroy it statehood,” Piontkovsky explained.

Nuclear blackmail

The last – 3 way Putin wanted to win “victory” – is nuclear blackmail. However, as the publicist emphasized, it also did not work, like the 2 previous ones.

Piontkovsky noted that it is very important to distinguish between nuclear blackmail and the use of nuclear weapons. According to him, these are completely different things.

Nuclear blackmail can be successful. He has worked for Putin since 2007,” Piontkovsky said.

He noted that it was thanks to this blackmail that Ukraine was not taken to NATO, they say, it does not meet any high criteria. However, Albania and North Macedonia have long “grown up” to such a high geopolitical level.

Nobody is afraid of Putin any more

Thanks to Putin's nuclear Blackmail was such a lukewarm response from the West to Russia's annexation of parts of Georgia, as well as to the annexation of Crimea. However, Putin's blackmail is no longer working.

“This is a global phenomenon, which is not only in the position of Washington. In the post-Soviet space, they have ceased to be afraid of Putin. That is why he is furious,” Piontkovsky emphasized.
