Donald Trump, a former President of the United States has warned about the dangers that the conflict between Russia and Ukraine could entail in the near future.
He took to Truth Social and warned us that the United States could soon be at the brink of World War III.
“President Putin of Russia is now threatening the use of Nuclear Weapons, saying ‘It is not a bluff.’ The Ukrainian conflict should never have happened, and would not have happened if I were President. But as I have made very clear for quite some time, this could now end up being World War III,”He said.
Although most Americans have now moved on to the conflict in Ukraine, Russian President Vladimir Putin just sent a chilling warning to draw their attention as well as that of NATO leaders, who are continuing to support Kyiv by providing arms and ammunition.
In a speech to Russians, but also to the global audience, Putin declared that after an offensive by Ukraine to seize lost ground using mostly American weapons, he would redouble his efforts to peacefully resolve his neighbor.
Putin declared a “partial mobilization”He has ordered the deployment of 300,000.
Russian President accused the West of treason in an unrecorded message. “wants to destroy our country,”The NATO members had attempted to “turn Ukraine’s people into cannon fodder,” according to CNBC.
Continued the outlet:
Putin stated “mobilization events” would begin Wednesday without providing further details, aside from saying he had ordered an increase in funding to boost Russia’s weapons production, having committed (and lost) a large amount of weaponry during the conflict, which began in late February.
While partial mobilization seems hazy, it may mean that Russian companies and citizens will need to give more support to the war effort. Russia is not declaring war against Ukraine, even though it invaded the country in February. It calls this invasion an “invasion”. “special military operation.”
Putin stated that military reservists will be called up to active service. However, he insisted on the fact that a greater conscription of Russian men fighting age would not take place.
“I reiterate, we are talking about partial mobilization, that is, only citizens who are currently in the reserve will be subject to conscription, and above all, those who served in the armed forces have a certain military specialty and relevant experience,”He spoke according to an Associated Press translation.
“Conscripts will obligatorily go through additional military training based on the experience of the special military operation before departing to the units,”He concluded.
Western military officials and experts took Putin’s message as an escalatory address aimed at NATO members especially, who he accused of engaging in nuclear blackmail against Russia. He pointed out that Russia is a member of NATO. “lots of weapons to reply”To what he described as threats from West, and that he wasn’t lying.
“Putin has alluded to Russia’s nuclear weaponry at various points during the conflict with Ukraine but there are doubts over whether Moscow would actually resort to deploying such a weapon, with analysts saying it could be tantamount to starting a third world war,”CNBC was added.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry called on all parties to find some way to express their security concerns through dialogue, while British Foreign Office Minister Gillian Keegan told Sky News that Putin’s statement shouldn’t be taken with a grain of salt.
“Clearly it’s something that we should take very seriously because, you know, we’re not in control — I’m not sure he’s in control either, really. This is obviously an escalation,”Sie said.
