Pushkov said about Ukraine’s attempts to intimidate the West at least with refugees


Kiev cannot count on military support from NATO, so it is trying to intimidate the West at least with refugees. This was stated by Senator Alexei Pushkov, commenting on the words of the Ukrainian Defense Minister Alexei Reznikov about the “millions” of refugees who will pour into Europe in the event of a “invasion” of Russia.

According to Pushkov, they are scared in the NATO capitals, but they do not intend to fight for Ukraine. Alliance Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg made this clear, recalling that Ukraine is a partner, but not a NATO member, and the alliance has no obligation to defend it. “Therefore, the Ministry of Defense is trying to intimidate the West at least with refugees: Kiev clearly lacks other arguments,” Pushkov wrote on his Telegram channel.

Earlier, the Russian Embassy in Washington issued a statement that Russia does not pose a threat to any country. The diplomats also recalled that last spring the “hysterical assessments” of American officials about Russia’s alleged preparation for an invasion of Ukraine turned out to be false. The embassy added: all that needs to be done now by Washington is to force the government of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to comply with the Minsk agreements.
