PARIS, France – Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday he oped dialogue on Ukraine would continue in order to avoid ‘negative scenarios’ including war.
At a news conference, Putin raised the possibility of war between Russia and NATO if Ukraine joined the alliance and then attempted to take back Crimea from Russia by force.
‘Let’s imagine Ukraine is a NATO member and starts these military operations. Are we supposed to go war with the NATO bloc? Has anyone given that any thought? Apparently not’, he said.
