Russia’s refusal to negotiate on nuclear disarmament and veto of the decision to create a tribunal on the Malaysian Boeing crash over the Donbas at the UN Security Council are a clear evidence of inadequate actions of Putin being in despair, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to the statement made by Borovoy in an article for Apostrophe.
“From the standpoint of other countries, Russia refuses any negotiations on nuclear weapons (speaking of the termination of negotiations with the United States on nuclear disarmament – Ed.). Moreover, it blames the Americans for violating everything. Also there were also mentioned the missile defense systems, they say, if the Americans manufacture missile defense systems, we will violate international agreements on short-and medium-range missiles,” he said.
“But it could be formulated differently: since we do not like the reaction to the downed Boeing, we will withdraw from the treaty on non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and will supply nuclear weapons to those who we want to. This is the same statement that violates all international agreements. The despair of Vladimir Putin suggests that this kind of inappropriate actions will be carried out,” the politician believes.
The Ukrainian political analyst Taras Berezovets believes that the current visit of the President Vladimir Putin to annexed Crimea is an attempt to create a ‘new TV picture’ to divert attention from the Russian ruble and the fall in world oil prices.
