Russia (for now) will not “Deploy Anyone” in Donbas
Military assistance to Donbas is ruled out for now, but Moscow is ready to offer it if there is a threat.
This was announced by the Russian Foreign Ministry, quoted by TASS. The institution explains that according to the agreement concluded last night in the recognition of the “republics”, the possibility of military aid is provided, but for now “no one will bring anything anywhere”.
According to Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Rudenko, for the time being, bases, as provided for in the agreements, will not be built on the territory of the DPR and LPR, but this will continue to be discussed.
Putin: I do not intend to rebuild the Russian Empire
“We have predicted that speculation will begin on this issue - that Russia would restore its imperial borders. This is absolutely untrue,” said President Vladimir Putin in talks with his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev in Moscow. According to him, after the collapse of the former Soviet Union, Russia “recognized all the new geopolitical realities and is actively working to strengthen our interaction with all independent countries that emerged in the post-Soviet space.”
“Even in acute, very acute situations, such as the settlement of Nagorno-Karabakh, we have always acted very carefully, taking into account the interests of all countries involved in this process, and we have always tried to reach mutually acceptable solutions,” Putin said.
At an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council on the night of February 22, US Permanent Representative Linda Thomas-Greenfield spoke about possible claims by modern Russia to territories that were previously part of the Russian Empire, such as Finland, Belarus and other countries. “Putin wants the world to go back to a time when there was no United Nations, to a time when empires ruled the world. But the rest of the world has progressed since then,” Thomas Greenfield said.
