Was Putins Annexion für den Krieg bedeutet | DW Nachrichten
are the next steps of escalation are the next steps of escalation of the Russian aggressive war against Ukraine now Russian President Vladimir Putin has declared Russian state territory occupied Ukrainian territory with the signing of agreements on the annexation of four regions in Ukraine the parliament Russian is supposed to be on Tuesday coordinating the forced incorporation which is contrary to international law which is not internationally recognized which will undoubtedly influence the further course of the imperial framework of war which does not want to go at all with the haste with which Moscow wants to create facts after the fake referees in the occupied territories that I think Putin at least announces the illegal annexation of the 4 Ukrainian regions I would like the rulers in Kiev and their de facto masters of the West to listen now, everyone should remember the people who experience Donet Carson and saporishi in the Luhansk region are now ours Citizens rush forever to a dictated region that Russia does not even fully control, areas where fighting continues unabated. by russian rockets and at least 23 people were killed all over the occupied territories the occupier is destroying all livelihoods economy culture social that can still be stopped but to stop it you must stop those in russia who want war more than life , his life Citizens of Russia the agreements that Putin signed with the four pro-Russian leaders in the Luhansk and Donetsk region herson and saporicia have yet to be formally ratified by the Duma in the Russian parliament, but at the international level they should not be worth the paper on the annex, which violates international law ion has been detained everything the international community should stand for violates the purposes and principles of the United Nations is a dangerous escalation has no place in the modern world will not accept the United States never never never never claims of Russia's recognition of Ukrainian territory this is a crucial moment Putin has mobilized hundreds of thousands of troops country more irresponsible nuclear saber rattling and is now illegally annexing more overall Ukrainian territory this represents the most serious escalation since the start of the war Ukraine also continues to secure its unlimited territory solidarity, in return Ukraine has requested accelerated NATO membership , yes, and now we can discuss this development with Gerhard Mangold, the professor of political science or Mr.
Mangott from the University of Innsbruck talks about how much the already tense situation is now aggravated by Russia's incorporation of the four Ukrainian regions . Now it is really a new level of escalation, not only because of the illegality of this land grab that Russia has carried out here, but also because of the statements that any attack on this territory that Russia now claims will be seen by Russia as an attack on its State itself and a few days ago Putin said yes, for which he announced the mobilization that any attack on the territorial integrity of Russia will be defended with all the means at our disposal and at that time it was a rattle of nuclear Sebri and what is disturbing today was a sentence he did said the US raised his eyebrows and said by the way this is a precedent a precedent he uses will align a Also the demand for this is increasing now specifically the danger of a nuclear attack in his opinion not in the future foreseeable I think there will only be a nuclear escalation if Putin is faced with a catastrophic military defeat which he knows he wants and has to win this war otherwise he will lose a position as president and because he has to win this war, I am confident that in an emergency in the face of a disastrous defeat, he will use all means, including nuclear weapons, to prevent this defeat now Vladimir Putin has also said that the annexed areas are inviolable and that now exactly the end of the war should be negotiated such negotiations are now much further away or should Russia's offer of negotiation be taken seriously somehow no, we are further away from negotiations than ever before Putin's offer of negotiation it is really such an offer because he had said at the same time but We will not negotiate on the sentences that we have annexed today, which means that Putin wants to impose a dictated peace with Ukraine because of course they do not accept it, especially because military luck on the battlefield it has turned in favor of Ukraine and Silensky reacted to this and said that we are negotiating with Russia, however, not under this e president and his side a clear rejection of talks, let alone negotiations, but what can the West in general do to reverse what is happening in Ukraine other than express outrage and impose more sanctions as they have already done done the US and the EU has already announced that there will be condemnations, there will be sanctions, but there will also be a commitment to supply Ukraine with even heavier weapons it will support these annexed areas back to conquer that means it defines the US war objective.
The US, as well as Ukraine's ultimate war goal, namely to expel Russian troops from its own territory, the West is practicing unity towards the outside world in this sense, I do not. I don't know yet if behind closed doors there is no meaning. The question is, do we really want to risk escalation to the nuclear level with the handover of armored personnel carriers and main battle tanks, or should we try to avoid this by engaging in talks with Russia, but there will be fewer governments in the West , the others will say no, Ukraine must continue to fight, our war goal is to expel the Russians from the entire Ukrainian state, says Professor Gerhard Mangold, thank you very much for your assessment
