NATO boss warns that Putin’s war in Ukraine could spiral into a GLOBAL conflict and spiral out of control.

The NATO head warned that Vladimir Putin’s war against Ukraine could spiral into a full-blown conflict between Russia and The West. 

In an interview, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told Norwegian broadcaster NRK: ‘If things go wrong, they can go horribly wrong.

“It is a terrible conflict in Ukraine. It is also a war with the potential to escalate into a major conflict between NATO or Russia. We are working every day to prevent that. 

Stoltenberg was a former prime Minister of Norway and said in the interview that ‘there’s no doubt that full-fledged warfare is possible’, adding that it is important that Europe avoids a conflict that involves more countries.

The Kremlin has repeatedly accused NATO allies of effectively becoming a party to the conflict by providing Ukraine with weapons, training its troops and feeding military intelligence to attack Russian forces. 

In comments reflecting the rising tensions between Russia, the West and Russia, President Vladimir Putin suggested Moscow might consider using what he called the US concept of a “preemptive strike”. 

He said, “When you think about a strike to disarm, perhaps it’s worth considering adopting ideas from our US counterparts, their ideas about ensuring their security,”

The Kremlin expressed concern long before the Ukraine war about US efforts to develop the Prompt Global Strike capability, which envisions striking an adversary’s strategic targets anywhere in the world with precision-guided convention weapons within one hour. 

Putin said that such a strike might knock out command facilities. Putin stated that they are still thinking about it and that they have been openly discussing it in the past years. He claimed that Moscow’s precision-guided missile cruise missiles outperform similar US weapons, and that Russia has hypersonic weapons which the US has not yet deployed. 

Putin also expressed disappointment at Angela Merkel’s comments about the 2015 peace deal between France and Germany for eastern Ukraine. She said that it had given Ukraine enough time to prepare for war in 2022. 

He stated that he assumed that the other participants in the process were sincere, but that it turned out that they were cheating him. 

In Comments That Reflected Soaring Tensions Between Russia And The West, President Vladimir Putin, Pictured, Suggested Moscow Might Think About Using What He Described As The Us Concept Of A Preemptive Strike

President Vladimir Putin suggested that Moscow might consider using the US concept for a preemptive strike, in comments that reflect the escalating tensions between Russia, the West and Russia.

“It turned out that the Russians wanted to supply Ukraine with weapons and prepare for hostilities.” 

Putin claimed that Ms Merkel’s statement proved that Russia was correct in launching the “special military operation” in Ukraine. 

He stated, “Perhaps it was time we had it started earlier.” He She also stated that her comments further undermined Russia’s trust and confidence in the West, which could complicate any peace negotiations.

“Eventually, we will have to negotiate a deal. Trust is a concern after such statements. Trust is almost zero. I have repeatedly said that we are ready to reach an agreement, but it forces us into thinking about who we are dealing. 

Putin accused the West again of using Ukraine as an instrument against his country, in separate comments via video link with defence and security chiefs from several ex Soviet nations. 

He stated that for many years the West had shambolically exploited and pumped its resources, encouraged genocide, terror in the Donbas, and effectively turned the country into an colony. 

“Now it’s using the Ukrainian people as cannon feed, as a ram for Russia by continuing to provide Ukraine with weapons, ammunition, sending mercenaries, pushing it to a suicidal path.” 

Ukrainians claim they are fighting for freedom from an unwanted invader or aggressor. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak phoned Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine’s President, to discuss the importance of preventing Russia’s insincere calls to a ceasefire. 

“The Prime Minister said that the Kremlin had to withdraw its forces before any agreement could even be considered.”
