NATO ‘indirect accomplice’ to Kyiv crimes, says Putin
President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday that Russia had no choice but to take into account the nuclear capabilities of NATO, as the US-led military alliance was seeking the defeat of Russia. “In today’s conditions, when all the leading NATO countries have declared their main goal as inflicting a strategic defeat on us, so that our people suffer as they say, how can we ignore their nuclear capabilities?” Putin told Rossiya 1 state television, according to TASS.
The West, Putin said, wanted to liquidate Russia. “They have one goal: to disband the former Soviet Union and its fundamental part—the Russian Federation,” Putin said. The West, he said, was an indirect accomplice to the “crimes” committed by Ukraine.
