Belkovsky: Thanks to the West and the United States Russia retained the nuclear capability of the former Soviet Union. If this had not happened, there would be no annexation of the Crimea and other outrages

Russian political scientist Stanislav Belkovsky in the broadcast program author founder of the publication «GORDON» Dmytro Gordon on the channel «112 Ukraine», said that if Western countries did not allow Russia to maintain nuclear weapons after the collapse of the USSR, the annexation of Crimea could have been avoided.

The analyst noted that when Putin came to power, he «scolded» the 90-ies.

«Then the revenge of the West emerged in the rhetoric of Putin. It was necessary to retaliate against the West for what he is not well treated with post-Soviet Russia, although I’m trying to draw the attention of my fellow citizens on the following: thanks to the West, especially the United States, the administrations of George H. W. Bush and bill Clinton, Russia has retained the entire nuclear potential of the former Soviet Union, nuclear weapons were removed from Ukraine and Kazakhstan. But if that hadn’t happened, there would be no annexation of the Crimea and all the other outrages now perpetrated by the Kremlin. The USA saved Russia a seat as a permanent member of the UN Security Council inherited from the Soviet Union, which was then in 1991-1992 the years, quite apparent. The fact is that the West has handed Putin donated the trump card, which he today against the West and uses. But it is very difficult to explain to the Russian people, alas,» – said Belkovsky.
