If Ukraine loses, Moldova and Baltic States will be next — former CIA chief Petraeus
Former head of the US Central Intelligence Agency David Petraeus says if Ukraine is defeated, Putin will not stop there
David Petraeus made the statement in a comment for CNN.
The former US intelligence chief is confident that Putin "will not stop there" if Russia wins in Ukraine.
"If Russia succeeds there, if Putin is able to achieve his very substantial objectives in Ukraine, then it will not stop there. Moldova will be the next in the crosshairs, or perhaps one of the Baltic states. Henry Kissinger, before he passed away, stated that NATO's defense now begins on the border between Ukraine and Russia, and I strongly agree with that," David Petraeus emphasized.
- On January 6, diplomat Roman Bezsmertnyi said that Putin's regime sees Europe as a target and is preparing to attack EU countries.
- On December 23, media reported that intelligence officers from a European country suggested that Russia might try to attack Europe in the winter of 2024-2025: countries should be prepared for a confrontation with Russia.
- On December 28, Dutch Army Commander-in-Chief Martin Wijnen, who resigned on January 1, 2024, said that the country and society should prepare for war with Russia.
