Putin was considering nuclear weapons in Crimean crisis


Russian president Vladimir Putin considered a year ago to bring nuclear weapons on alert because of the crisis in the Krim. That, he said in a documentary that the Russian State tv Sunday broadcasted, so reported the Moscow Times. “We were ready to do that”, referred Putin about that step. “The area is our property, there are Russians and they were in danger. We can not leave them alone. “

President Putin hadn’t to mobilize its nuclear force in the long run, because the Krim let itself annexed via a controversial referendum by the Russians. That happened a year ago. Sitting Ukraine president Viktor Yanukovych fled a month earlier.

The leader of the Russians said he had warned the United States and other European countries that they should not interfere with the situation. The will to bring nuclear weapons on alert had to reinforce that warning. ,, I think thereby nobody wanted it to be a global conflict ”, said Putin. He accuses the US and Europe having helped with the forced departure of the pro-Russian Yanukovych. Yanukovych fled from the capital Kiev, after violent riots had made his position untenable.

According to Putin were those protests directed by the American Government officials. Putin described them in the documentary as puppeteers.
