Putin Threatens “Unlimited War” with Ukraine If NATO Runs Kiev’s Defence Policies

Published

The prospects of Russia-Ukraine War cannot be ruled out if NATO led by the US runs Kiev’s defence policies against Russia. Russian President Vladimir Putin made it absolutely clear that there would be no end to the conflict in Ukraine as long as the country is run by pro-Western politicians.

Russia-Ukraine Relations Turn Sour; Poroshenko Accuses Putin of Dreaming of Rebuilding Russian Empire

President Putin told reporters at the end of the G20 summit in Argentina on Saturday that the current Ukrainian administration was not interested in a peaceful settlement of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

“The current Ukrainian authorities have no interest in resolving the conflict, especially by peaceful means,” PUTIN stated adding, “As long as they remain in power, the war will continue.”

Vladimir Putin stated that international efforts for the release of a group of Ukrainian sailors captured by Moscow in the Sea of Azov last month were destined to fail because he said there was no discussion on their release.

Tensions between Russia and Ukraine intensified on November 25 when Russian border patrols fired at three Ukrainian ships and then seized them along with their sailors because of unauthorised entry into the Russian waters.

The episode took place in the Kerch Strait near Crimea, a former Ukrainian territory on the Black Sea that joined Russia in a referendum in March 2014 following the political developments in Kiev that led to the rise of a pro-Western government.

The recent military confrontation sparked a fresh row between Russia and the United States and even forced US President Donald Trump to cancel a planned meeting with Putin on the sidelines of the G20 summit.

Putin told reporters in Buenos Aires that he would accept no precondition for the meeting to be reinstated, including the release of the three Ukrainian ships and the sailors.

US and allies in Europe have slapped sanctions on Russia over the annexation of Crimea and Moscow’s alleged interference in Ukraine, especially in two eastern provinces where pro-Russia groups have been battling the Ukrainian military forces for the past four years.

Russia has downplayed the sanctions as trivial while denying West’s accusation of support for rebels in eastern Ukraine. However, Moscow insists it will arbitrate militarily if it feels Kiev is suppressing the ethnic Russian population living in areas close to the Russian border.
