Russia President Vladimir Putin is blackmailing the West with terrorist attacks to persuade to cooperate on Ukraine, and now switched to nuclear blackmail with the regime of North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN. This opinion was expressed by Russian political scientist and publicist Andrei Piontkovsky in the comments of «Radio Liberty».
«In a hybrid world war there was a clear fracture. No «Yalta» is not expected. The noose of sanctions, including the confiscation of «Putin’s trillion» is tightened on the neck of the Kremlin kleptocrats. It is urgent to change the dynamics of behavior. Putin is like a gambler throws at stake is a new card appears on the scene, His Excellency, Ambassador extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation in the United States of America General of the army Anatoly Ivanovich Antonov (included in the sanctions lists of the EU, Ukraine, Canada). The objective of His Excellency is to dramatically improve the level of political blackmail,» he said.
The analyst noted that the Russian Ambassador would force the US to the agreement is no longer a threat to the emergence of new terrorists with homemade bombs, and the prospect of a nuclear strike by the DPRK.
«In his two inaugural speeches… comrade General obsession sold to American audiences Moscow’s influence in the North Korean leadership, returning again and again to the idea that without the assistance of Russia, the United States will not be able to protect itself from North Korean nuclear threats,» he said.
Piontkovsky said that Moscow’s influence on Pyongyang is no doubt.
«Putin acts in the international arena, a tireless lobbyist for the nuclear missile programs, Kim Jong-UN. With each new rise of North Korean technology thoughts from the experts there is less doubt in Russian ensuring the rapid progress of Pyongyang in recent years. An official investigation into the Kremlin’s nuclear missile trail is now in the U.S. Congress», – he said.
The expert added that the Congress can «recoil» from the findings of its own investigation.
«Lubyanka «operation of nuclear offshore» is in his own genius. Placing Americans Intercontinental hedgehog in his pants, Moscow 55 years after the Cuban missile crisis again placed on the Board figures it is lost then the party, but this time in a much stronger position. She’s not responsible now any liability for the acts of its nuclear offshore, it can only generously offer US their assistance. Under certain conditions, of course. The first statement by John F. Kennedy in the days of the crisis were the words: «In response to missile attack from Cuba the United States will cause a full-scale nuclear attack on the USSR.» Khrushchev’s not enough then the nerve to say «We are ready to offer you my help, Mr. President, in the negotiations with Cuba, because too concerned about its growing nuclear capabilities,» he concluded.
Since 2006, North Korea fired six nuclear weapon tests and tens of launches of ballistic missiles. November 29, North Korea conducted a launch of an Intercontinental ballistic missile of a new type «And 15». According to the North Korean leader, it was the completion of the process of creating a «state of nuclear forces» of the DPRK. In response South Korea the same day has conducted missile exercises on the border with the DPRK.
Pentagon chief James Mattis said in October that any DPRK attack on the United States or allies would be repulsed. According to the head of the Pentagon, «any use of nuclear weapons will lead to effective and overwhelming military response.»
2 Dec adviser to the President of the United States Donald trump on national security Herbert McMaster noted that the risk of war with North Korea «growing every day».
