Putin Warns of ‘Global Catastrophe’ If NATO Troops Clash Directly With Russia

Fact checked
Russian President Vladimir Putin says globalism has not benefited the US middle class, saying "it was left out when this pie was divided up."

Russian President Vladimir Putin said today warned that a direct clash between NATO and Russian troops would lead to a “global catastrophe,” adding that he sees no need to carry out massive strikes against Ukraine… “for now.”

It was revealed on Friday – shortly before Putin spoke in Astana – that the Kremlin has increased the number of strategic nuclear bombers stationed at an airbase near the Finnish and Norwegian borders, satellite images reveal. 

Putin also stressed that Russia is willing to hold peace talks, although he said they would require international mediation as Russia is no longer able to trust Ukraine to be true to its word.

Daily Mail report: Putin was speaking in Astana after a meeting of The Commonwealth of Independent States Summit (CIS), where he sat down with fellow leaders of ex-Soviet states.

Other attendees included Belarusian dictator Aleksandr Lukashenko, who said on Friday that Russian troops would soon be arriving to take part in a regional grouping’of forces to protect its borders.

‘The introduction of troops into a direct confrontation with the Russian army is a very dangerous step that could lead to a global catastrophe,’ Putin told reporters. ‘I hope that those who speak of this have enough sense not to take such steps.’

Putin said he currently saw no need for ‘massive strikes’ on Ukraine now having hit their intended targets earlier in the week – but that could change in the future – and insisted that it was not his goal to destroy Ukraine.

‘There is no need now for massive strikes. There are other tasks. For now. And then it will be clear,’ he said, adding: ‘We do not set ourselves the task of destroying Ukraine. No, of course not,’ Putin said.

He went on to say that the ‘partial mobilization’ he announced last month, which the defence minister said aimed to recruit 300,000 soldiers, was finishing and would be over within two weeks.

‘Nothing additional is planned. No proposals have been received from the defence ministry and I don’t see any additional need in the foreseeable future.

‘Now 222,000 people have been mobilised out of 300,000. Within about two weeks, all mobilisation activities will be completed.’ A total of 33,000 of them are already in military units and 16,000 are involved in the military operation in Ukraine, he said.

He said his decision to call-up of reserve forces to fight in Ukraine had been vital to hold the front line. ‘The line of contact is 680 miles so it is practically impossible to hold it with forces formed only of contract soldiers, especially since they take part in offensive activities,’ Putin said.

    • Nah it`s a DMZ china would step in game over.Russia& china don`t need the rest of the world to survive ONLY the rest of the world need russia& china to survive.Trump sets down with putin cuts a deal war games over! OVER!!!

  1. This is all Putin has left. I don’t think Putin understood the corruption throughout his military that was from top to bottom. High ranking officers sell equipment that is supposed to go to the soldiers. Billions of rubles were spent on a tank that was supposed to be unstoppable. Russia paraded several down Red Square. Now Russians are asking, where are they? Looks like they were never built. Right down to the maintenance guy who sold the fuel that was supposed to go to the tanks and trucks causing many jokes when Russian military equipment was stuck with no gas in the beginning of the war. Extra pocket money for the maintenance guy. It was just regular Russian citizen that explained this. Kim Clement was a prophet who said he heard from God. Clement predicted in 2014 that Ukraine would bring Russia to it’s knees. Looks like he was right.

    • Nah it was already deemed a DMZ by than a war stage ZONE with all the nuclear missles sold off and NO nukes allowed under the peace agreement.that`s not a prophet at all just someone who reads the news.The stage was set for this showcase battlefeild like the DMZ in nam so on war stages where all the world weapon makers can showcase their new big boy toys.If the G7 nato steps up the showcase war for the ONE% profit margins than CHINa will stepin as that action would effect their markets too much to stand aside.EVERY DMZ is a set aside battlefeild waiting BUILD IT AND THEY WILL COME.It is a new nam with the weapons coming from us.Thats not a prophet that is a PROFIT MARGINS realist with the inside scoop
