Putin Warns Russia-Nato Conflict Is A Step Away From World War 3.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has issued a warning to the West, stating that a direct conflict between Russia and the US-led NATO military alliance would bring the world dangerously close to a third world war.

However, he also emphasized that hardly anyone desires such a scenario. The ongoing Ukraine war has caused the most severe crisis in Moscow’s relations with the West since the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962.

While Putin has frequently highlighted the risks of nuclear war, he maintains that he has never felt the need to employ nuclear weapons in Ukraine. Last month, French President Emmanuel Macron stated that he could not rule out the future deployment of ground troops in Ukraine.

Many Western nations have distanced themselves from this statement, while others, particularly in Eastern Europe, have expressed support.

When asked about Macron’s remarks and the potential conflict between Russia and NATO, Putin responded, “Everything is possible in the modern world.” He further explained, “It is evident to everyone that this would bring us one step away from a full-scale world war three.

I believe hardly anyone is interested in this.” Putin acknowledged that NATO military personnel are already present in Ukraine, noting that Russian forces have heard English and French being spoken on the battlefield.

He expressed concern about the situation, particularly for those fighting in Ukraine, as casualties continue to rise. Putin emphasized that there is nothing positive about this development, stating, “They are dying there, and in large numbers.”

With the Ukrainian attacks escalating in the run-up to the Russian presidential election, Putin revealed that if the assaults persist, Russia may create a buffer zone using additional Ukrainian territory to safeguard its own borders.

He did not provide specific details but suggested that the zone might need to be substantial enough to prevent foreign-made weaponry from reaching Russian territory.

In February 2022, Putin ordered a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, triggering a major conflict in Europe after eight years of fighting between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian Ukrainians and Russian proxies in the east.

Putin expressed his desire for French President Macron to cease exacerbating the situation in Ukraine and instead play a role in facilitating peace. He stated, “It appears that France could play a role. All hope is not lost yet.”

Putin reiterated his support for peace talks, emphasizing that it should not be solely due to the enemy running out of ammunition. He urged a genuine commitment to long-term peaceful and neighborly relations between the two states.

Putin also dismissed US and Western criticism of the election, which the White House said was not free and fair, saying US elections were not democratic and criticizing the use of state power against Donald Trump.

“The whole world is laughing at what is happening there,” Putin said of the US. “It is just a catastrophe – it is not democracy – what on earth is it?”
