Zeman: Attack on Ukraine to destroy Russia

Russian President Vladimir Putin has succumbed to the illusion that the Russian army is one of the strongest, Czech President Milos Zeman told CNN Prima News, Report informs.

Zeman noted that Russia is now acting surprisingly irrationally.

“An attack on Ukraine will destroy Russia, it will destroy the country economically, politically and reputationally, this is not the worst step in the interests of the Russian people, and yet it happened because politicians act irrationally and behave like crazy. And a crazy person needs to be isolated,” he said.

According to Zeman, Putin “succumbed to the illusion that Russia is omnipotent and that the Russian army is the second most powerful army in the world.”

“I think that each country defends its national interests, but these interests are short-term and long-term. And the Russians – and I admit, to my surprise and the surprise of many other politicians – turned out to be completely irrational, unpredictable, more aggressive and less European than I thought,” he said.

The president of the Czech Republic also noted that his country is only partially ready for a possible cessation of gas supplies from Russia.

Sweden to send delegation to Turkiye for talks on NATO membership

Avatar

Published

on

The government of Sweden will send representatives to Turkiye to resolve existing disagreements regarding its NATO bid, kingdom's Defense Minister Peter Hultqvist.

"We will send a group of officials to hold discussions and the dialogue with Turkiye, and we will see how the issue will be resolved and what it actually is. But the signals we got from NATO are that there is an agreement on that both Sweden and Finland must be admitted to the alliance," he said.

On Monday, the Swedish parliament will hold debates on NATO accession, and the government will meet to approve the membership bid.

"I cannot say when exactly the bid will be sent but the decision will be adopted today," the minister said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday that Ankara is not supportive of Finland and Sweden's NATO bid since "the Scandinavian countries are a guest house for terrorist organizations" – members of Kurdistan Workers' Party outlawed in Turkiye. On Saturday, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu also expressed outrage at this. He noted that the majority of Turkish residents opposed the accession of Finland and Sweden to NATO and asked Ankara to block the process, but it intends to discuss this with its allies in the alliance, as well as Helsinki and Stockholm.
