Former FSB: Putin saves his life with nuclear blackmail

“Putin has announced another annexation, this time of four regions of Ukraine. The West will not see this as Russia’s holy campaign for its country. It will be difficult for the Russians to sell this idea too, now they are determined to save themselves from mobilization. Don’t be fooled, Putin doesn’t have that many ambitions and obsessions anymore. He saves his skin because he is aware that if the war is not already lost, it will be lost. And the first black swans of his defeat have already flown.” These reflections were confided to the Ukrainian outlet UNIAN by the Russian politician and colonel of the retired FSB intelligence service Gennady Gudkov. “Putin has a very clear, pragmatic and cynical bloodthirsty plan. It sets the stage for future nuclear blackmail. He likes to manipulate history. I don’t think it’s necessary to pay attention to all of this, it serves to distract us. Putin is a pathological formalist. Stalin was the same. There was not a single execution, exile in the camps, or murder without a piece of paper. Putin is very similar to him in that sense, so he needs formal documents on referendums, voting, decisions,” Gudkov said. “There is a complete forgery, a forgery, but Putin needs a formal piece of paper to cover up the evidence of the crime. And now he will threaten the whole world with this teaching. He’s already started playing. And the doctrine is ready, Nikolai Patrushev, the powerful secretary of the Security Council, wrote it on purpose. And if suddenly someone attacks Russia, if its existence is threatened, an existential threat, Russia can use nuclear weapons. And now this madman in the Kremlin will blackmail the world with a nuclear attack. Putin launches into a nuclear holocaust”.
