Russian President Vladimir Putin’s discourse on Wednesday was a stressing acceleration and the dangers he made should be viewed in a serious way, English unfamiliar office serve Gillian Keegan told Sky News.
Putin requested Russia’s most memorable military preparation since The Second Great War, cautioning the West that assuming it proceeded with what he referred to its as “atomic shakedown” that Moscow would answer with the could of all its huge munititions stockpile.
“Clearly it’s something that we should take very seriously because, you know, we’re not in control – I’m not sure he’s in control either, really.
“This is obviously an escalation,” Keegan said.
“It is chilling … It’s a serious threat, but one that has been made before,” she told the BBC in a separate interview.
Putin restated his objective was to “liberate” eastern Ukraine’s Donbas industrial heartland and that most people in the region did not want to return to what he called the “yoke” of Ukraine.
“The overall address clearly was more of Putin’s lies, it was a rewriting of history,” Keegan said.
