Putin Says If NATO Absorbs Ukraine, There May be War



The possibility of Ukraine joining NATO poses a threat to European security, as it creates the grounds for a major conflict between Moscow and the military bloc, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Tuesday.

Ukraine’s official state doctrine includes an intention to restore Kiev’s sovereignty over the Crimean Peninsula, which has been part of Russia since 2014, and, notably, by “military means,” he pointed out, during a joint press conference with the Hungarian prime minister, Viktor Orban.

A potential NATO membership would see Ukraine “filled chock-full” with arms, with Kiev provided with access to state-of-the-art offensive weapons, Putin added.

Such developments could prompt Kiev to proceed with its plan to start a military “operation” in Crimea, the president warned, adding that Moscow would then be bound to respond, since it considers the peninsula, which was reabsorbed by Russia in a March 2014 referendum, its sovereign territory.

I think a war with Russia is a really great idea.

I especially want to see every city nuked.

Just like, all of the cities.
