Boris Johnson called Putin paranoid
Former British Prime Minister in the column for The Washington Post criticized the pre-war policy of the West.
For readers of the Pravda Gerashchenko channel, we present the loudest theses:
🇬🇧 Double game
Europe got the worst war in 80 years, because the West promised Ukraine NATO membership in words, but in reality convinced the Kremlin that this would not happen.
🇬🇧 Dictator’s miscalculation
Before the war, support for the Euro-Atlantic course divided Ukraine, but now the vast majority of citizens (86%, as of January) are in favor of joining NATO.
🇪🇺 Europe’s mistakes
After the occupation of Crimea and the invasion of Donbass, the West responded with a “policy of craven appeasement” instead of a tough reaction.
🆒 Who is cooler
It used to be argued that Ukrainians cannot master Western technology and switch to Alliance standards. But today, NATO must take courses in Ukraine: “How to fight in modern conditions.”
📌 The results of the farce
Instead of helping to repel the attack of the aggressor, the West created the Normandy format, which de facto recognized Ukraine as the guilty party, like Russia.
Putin launched the aggression precisely because he believed that the West and NATO would not come to the aid of Ukraine, given the policies of the past.
📝 Work on mistakes
In order to correct its geopolitical mistakes, the West must give Kyiv all the weapons it needs to win and immediately begin the process of admitting Ukraine to NATO.
🔚 Finita la comedy
What if Moscow starts raising the stakes and threatening a nuclear bomb? Johnson responded admirably to these fears: “The West has listened with respect to Russia’s security arguments. This respect has been destroyed by Putin’s rockets.”
