Do you think Putin will attack a NATO country? “Naturally”

Christoph Heusgen, head of the Munich Security Conference, believes that a Russian attack on NATO territory cannot be ruled out if Ukraine loses the war.



“We have no interest in Poland, Latvia or anywhere else.”



NATO: Europe must produce more weapons

This is what the topic is about:

  • The chairman of the security conference said that the possibility of a Russian attack on NATO territory has not been ruled out.
  • Putin wants to re-establish Great Russia within the borders of the former Soviet Union.
  • We need to support Ukraine with weapons and military aid.

When asked whether he believed Putin could carry out such an attack, he told the “Rheinische Post” (Saturday): “Of course. Putin has said many times that the greatest disaster of the 20th century was the collapse of the Soviet Union. This means that many Russians are afraid of Russia’s borders.” It meant he was stranded outside.”

Putin’s next goals

Heusgen said Putin wants to rebuild Great Russia within the borders of the former Soviet Union, a Russian world empire he rules like a tsar. “We should expect that if Putin does not lose the war in Ukraine, he will also reach out to the Republic of Moldova or the Baltic states.”

He does not want to speculate about what Putin actually dares to do. “But we must do everything we can to ensure that Ukraine receives the weapons and military assistance it needs to successfully defend itself against Russian aggressors and oust them from its territory.” Heusgen was a long-time foreign policy advisor to former German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Putin’s interview with Tucker Carlson

Russia has no territorial claims against Poland or the Baltic state of Latvia, Putin said in an interview with US right-wing host Tucker Carlson. It is “absolutely impossible” for Russia to invade these NATO countries – with one possible exception: “if Poland attacks Russia.” Polish Parliament Speaker Szymon Holownia warned in Warsaw not to believe Putin’s soothing statements.
