Starting war with NATO countries to hasten Russia's and Putin's end - General Malomuzh
Putin is on the verge of a major failure. Starting a war with NATO countries will hasten Russia's demise
Mykola Malomuzh, General of the Army of Ukraine, Head of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Ukraine (2005-2010), shared his opinions with Espreso TV.
"There will be no attacks on NATO and EU countries by Russia. Because Putin is bogged down in Ukraine. He has suffered huge losses here and is on the verge of a major failure. I think that in 2024, Ukraine and its partners will create the appropriate conditions for the liberation of our territories," he said.
"The outbreak of war with NATO countries is the accelerated end of Russia and Putin himself", the general believes. "Putin is aware of this, so he will not take such steps. It is extremely difficult and dangerous for him, because the entire mechanism of NATO countries is involved, and this is an order of magnitude higher in economic, technological and military terms," Malomuzh notes.
According to him, the Leningrad Military District creation due to Finland's accession to NATO is also a failed option. "Russians have already experienced real war and losses in their families. This is an extremely difficult situation for Putin at the moment. So he is trying to cover it up with some victories, promising ones, confrontation with NATO, and so on," he summarized.
- On Wednesday, December 6, President Joe Biden addressed the US Congress on the National Security and Assistance Package for Ukraine, stating that "if Putin takes over Ukraine, he will not stop there. He will attack NATO allies, and we will see the U.S. military fighting the Russian military."
- On Sunday, December 17, Vladimir Putin called the words of US President Joe Biden that Russia would attack a NATO country if it won the war with Ukraine "complete nonsense," adding that Russia was not interested in doing so.
- On December 18, the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) reported that Putin has been trying to create the preconditions for the collapse of NATO for two decades.
