‘Increasingly desperate’ Vladimir Putin may attack NATO base to prevent weapons from reaching Ukraine

Vladimir Putin may consider striking a NATO base to stop arms supplies to Ukraine, the former head of the British security service has warned.

Lord Ricketts, the government’s first national security adviser, said yesterday that Mr. Putin is “more and more desperate to cut off the flow of weapons” to Ukraine.

It might even do so by attacking planes or convoys heading into the country from NATO countries, Lord Ricketts suggested.

Lord Ricketts fears that the conflict is heading towards “an evil stalemate in which Russia will hold on to quite a large part of the country.”

He fears the conflict is heading towards “a vicious stalemate in which Russia will hold on to quite a large part of the country” and Ukraine will not agree to a settlement, he told the BBC.

He also warned that the conflict could continue “for many years to come” as a guerrilla war like “an open wound in the middle of Europe”.

“I believe that President Putin wants us all to be afraid that he may want to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine, which will be a serious escalation and ensure the isolation of Russia around the world,” he said.

“Most likely, I think they are looking for a way to prevent or limit this flow of weapons to Ukraine by supporting the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

“So we might see attacks on convoys or planes delivering weapons from the west.

Russia called on the US to stop arming Ukraine

Russia has ordered the US to stop sending weapons to Ukraine, warning of “unpredictable consequences” if it continues to do so.

The warning was delivered in the form of an official diplomatic note seen by the Washington Post.

It said US and NATO shipments of “the most sensitive” weapons were “adding fuel” to the conflict, now in its second month.

The two-page memo was delivered after Biden agreed to a new $800 million supply of military aid to Ukraine, including heavy artillery and artillery shells, helicopters and armored personnel carriers.

“What the Russians are telling us privately is the same thing we have been telling the world publicly — that the huge amount of help we are giving our Ukrainian partners is proving extremely effective,” a senior US official said of the memo.

“In an extreme case, perhaps some kind of missile attack on a NATO base, where weapons were being prepared for Ukraine.

“And this will certainly present a real dilemma for NATO countries.”

Lord Ricketts said the Kremlin was “increasingly desperate to cut off the flow of weapons” and that an attack on a NATO base “is not impossible.”

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that it is important for Russia not to retake a single territory in the Donbass.

“That is why it is very important for us to prevent them, to stand our ground, because this battle … it can affect the course of the entire war,” he said. CNN.

“I do not trust the Russian military and the Russian leadership.

“Therefore, we understand that the fact that we recaptured them and they left, and they fled from Kyiv – from the north, from Chernigov and from the other side … this does not mean that they are able to capture the Donbass, they will not go further than Kyiv.”

The president also urged the West to prepare for Putin’s nuclear attack. He said the Russian leader might consider tactical attacks if his war stalled further.

“We should not wait for the moment when Russia decides to use nuclear weapons … We must prepare for this,” he said.

“Chemical weapons, they have to do it, they can do it, for them human life is nothing. So.

“We must think, not be afraid, not be afraid, but be ready. But this is not a question of Ukraine, not only of Ukraine, but of the whole world.”
