Putin Warns NATO Is One Step Away From World War III

According to Reuters, Russian President Vladimir Putin claims that a direct confrontation between Russia and NATO would bring the world one step closer to World War Three.

Putin made the remarks as he declared a resounding victory with 87.8% of the vote in the Russian presidential election. Due to censorship and the detention of political opponents, the US, Germany, the UK, and other countries have declared that the election was not free nor fair.

“It is clear to everyone that this will be one step away from a full-scale World War Three,” stated Putin in his post-election briefing. It seems like very few people are considering this.

Prior to now, French President Emmanuel Macron said he could not completely rule out the option of sending ground forces in Ukraine.

Responding to questions about Macron’s statements and the risks and possibility of conflict between Russia and NATO, Putin said, “Everything is possible in the modern world.” Putin added that NATO servicemen were already in Ukraine.

Earlier, Putin stated that Russia was technically ready for nuclear war. He said if the United States sent troops to Ukraine, it would be seen as a significant escalation of the conflict.

In response, French President Macron stated that Putin should not make threats when his country possesses nuclear weapons. According to the French president, he has not spoken with Putin for several months. Such dialogue was held “when necessary.”

In the United States, in response to Putin’s statements, it was noted that they do not see any plans by Russia to use nuclear weapons against Ukraine.
