Putin unexpectedly admitted Russia's weakness – Piontkovsky
Piontkovsky said that Putin confessed his weakness/Channel 24 collageIn the strategic concept of NATO, Russia was assigned the status of the main threat. In addition, they noted that nuclear weapons remain the main factor deterring aggressors. That is, not only Putin is now blackmailing.
This was reported to Channel 24 by Russian opposition publicist Andrey Piontkovsky. He noted that in this way NATO also showed their “nuclear club” to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Putin's unexpected confession
In his opinion, Putin went crazy enough to believe that the West did not have nuclear weapons. More specifically, he was convinced that the United States would not dare to use it.
As the publicist noted, the head of the Kremlin spoke openly about this at a press conference during the visit of French President Emmanuel Macron, which took place a few days before the start of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
Putin unexpectedly admitted that Russia is weaker than the conventional level. However, they have nuclear weapons, in which they excel (West – Channel 24), – said Piontkovsky.
As he stressed, it seems that the Russian president still believes in such nonsense. However, both the United States of America and the North Atlantic Alliance have resolutely stated several times that if tactical nuclear weapons are used, they will deal a crushing blow both to Russia and to Putin personally.
Ukraine is now the only one that meets NATO criteria
At the same time, Piontkovsky suggested, Putin was convinced that nuclear weapons would not be used against Russia because the West was constantly backing down because of such blackmail. The publicist recalled that it had been working since 2007, when NATO denied Ukraine membership.
They officially stated that Ukraine does not fit NATO according to any criteria. Now it's just funny. And that North Macedonia, Montenegro, Albania meet very high criteria for democracy and development, which are not in Ukraine? – said Piontkovsky.
According to him, Ukraine is now the only one that meets NATO criteria. Especially the one for which the North Atlantic Alliance was created – protection against Soviet and Russian aggression.
