MOSCOW, October 24 – The deputy of the Rada from the party “Opposition Platform – For Life” Oleg Voloshin considered Facebook a bad sign for Kiev, the words of Russian President Vladimir Putin about the possibility of the appearance of American missiles on the territory of Ukraine.

“There were many (messages. – Ed.) In our media that the elements broke the prong of the Kremlin wall. Those who saw the video will agree that the apocalyptic mood evokes something. But even more this effect provokes watching the moment when At a meeting of the Valdai Club, after suggesting that even without Ukraine’s formal membership in NATO, American missiles may appear near Kharkov, he asks emotionally and in a very Russian way: “And what should we do with this? Well, we’re not going there with our missiles, they are thrusting them under our nose! “And then it is much calmer, but this adds even more gloomily:” Of course, this is a problem, “Voloshin wrote.

The parliamentarian added that “everything is clear to an attentive observer,” and compared the current situation with the Cuban missile crisis in 1962, when the United States and the USSR were on the brink of war after the deployment of Soviet missiles in Cuba. According to Voloshin, then Washington did not tolerate the fact that American cities were in the affected zone, and Moscow got the opportunity to put forward an ultimatum to the United States. Now, the Ukrainian deputy believes, Russia may find itself in such a position.

“In the current realities, no one in the Kremlin will wait until the flight time of American missiles aimed at Moscow is reduced to seven minutes. <...> And then the United States will receive a powerful lever of pressure on Russia. <...> Military theory teaches that in In such circumstances, it is easier to deliver a preemptive strike and push the border back to create strategic depth, “Voloshin explained.

He also suggested that the United States could demand from Russia the demilitarization of Crimea or the termination of military-technical cooperation with China in exchange for the withdrawal of American missiles from Ukraine if they appear there.
Moscow has repeatedly stated that it has no aggressive intentions towards other states. At the same time, Ukrainian politicians often come up with territorial claims against Russia. Thus, the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Aleksey Goncharenko called the Kuban “Ukrainian ethnic lands”, and the former parliamentarian Tatyana Chernovol urged the Ukrainian Armed Forces to prepare for a military operation in Crimea and wait for a convenient moment for this.
