Finland's President Sauli Niinistio has warned of a dangerous moment in the war in Ukraine, as Russian President Vladimir Putin has invested too many resources in an invasion that has turned against him.
He said this in an interview with CNN.
"He put everything in," Niinistio said.
"He is a fighter, so it is very difficult to imagine how he will suffer any kind of defeat, and this certainly makes the situation very critical," the Finnish president explained.
According to him, over the years he saw and understood the evolution of Putin's thinking. It is worth noting that Sauli Niinisto had quite frequent contacts with the President of the Russian Federation in the past.
"He is disappointed with the situation in Ukraine after the events of 2014. This disappointment was growing. He decided to solve it now, one way or another," Niinisto said.
According to him, the invasion of Ukraine reduced the activity of the Russian Federation near Finland.
"We haven't seen any signs of increased Russian activity near Finland. Now Putin seems to have an added headache in Ukraine. In fact, our borders are calmer now than they have been in a long time," Niinisto said.
We will remind you that Western capitals are thinking about response plans in the event that the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, starts to implement his nuclear threats against Ukraine, and they are secretly sending warnings to the Kremlin about the possible consequences.
