“What nobody knows about Vladimir Putin”, the most tragic of suspects – Libero Quotidiano
Federico Rampini was the guest of Tagada, the afternoon conference on La7 hosted by Tiziana Panella. The journalist spoke about the crisis Russia-Ukraine, on the role of Putin, on NATO and on the United States Joe Biden: “Wind of war? The unknown is Vladimir Poutine, deciphering its strategic intentions is a feat. He has always said that he wants to reconstitute a security zone around Russia, and therefore push back NATO, which has come dangerously close to its borders, warns Rampini, who thus gets to the heart of the matter.
“Russia,” Rampini repeated repeatedly, “is dangerously close to its borders” and the United States is already very afraid of these moves. “Does Biden have a plan B to avoid war in Ukraine? Apparently, the US President is trying to avoid a new Kabul, appealing to US citizens to leave Ukraine, and the warning that he will not send soldiers to evacuate them. “
“Putin may not have all this interest in waging war. He just wants to tighten the towers, so that the West continues to apply the sanctions which ultimately disadvantage Europe more than Russia and push the country ruled by Putin into China’s influence. In the United States, a kind is being studied ‘finlandization’ of certain European states close to Russia: a sort of buffer state. For Vladimir Putin, war is not an easy option, it would meet with resistance and would have to justify the massacres of a Ukrainian people which he himself describes as being part of Russian history,” Rampini explained.
