Putin can help Iran with nuclear weapons - former Israeli Ambassador to Russia Milman
Arkady Milman, an Israeli diplomat and former Israeli ambassador to Russia, believes that the Russian president may help Iran with nuclear weapons
He spoke about this on the Espreso TV channel."We are very concerned about this. We can expect anything from a man who is sitting in the Kremlin, who is under arrest for kidnapping children in Ukraine. It is better for all of us, the free world, to take all measures to prevent this from happening," Milman said.
According to him, Putin constantly uses anti-Semitic motives in his narratives.
"On 5 September, a meeting of the so-called 'Victory Project' took place, where Putin decided to change the narrative of the Holocaust. He said that one and a half million Jews in Ukraine were killed by Ukrainian nationalists, and that even the SS and the German army could not imagine this. In other words, he completely absolved Nazi Germany of responsibility for the Holocaust and placed all the blame on Ukrainian nationalists," Milman stressed.
From a historical point of view, this is a fake, because all the killing campaigns were led by the SS, the Sonderkommando, and the German army, the diplomat said.
"Putin never says that, for example, about a third of the Soviet army that defeated Nazi Germany were ethnic Ukrainians. That is, if a third of this multimillion-strong army had not participated, we probably would not have seen Nazism either," Milman said.
Everyone knows that Putin distorts historical facts.
"Then he gave an interview to a Russian channel, saying the following: "Western curators put an ethnic Jew, Zelenskyy, at the head of modern Ukraine, with an inhuman nature, in order to whitewash neo-Nazis and Ukrainian nationalists. Then, when the war in Israel broke out, he did not say a word to Hamas. Later, he started accusing us and saying that we were also blockading Gaza, but we were blockading Gaza as a preventive measure. That is, a war of peace in order to destroy these terrorists, and Putin compared it to the blockade of Leningrad. It's all an anti-Semitic campaign that is partly connected to the upcoming elections in Russia," Milman concluded.
On 27 September, the United States called on Iran to de-escalate the nuclear issue.
On 14 October, US-based political scientist Andrey Piontkovsky said in an interview with Antin Borkovsky, host of the Studio West program, that Israel has long been ready for an operation to destroy Iran's nuclear capabilities.
On 22 October, a representative of the Defense Ministry's Main Intelligence Directorate, Andriy Yusov, said that the impact of Putin's nuclear blackmail was much less than he expected.
