Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, warned the West on Tuesday, May 28th, that they are playing with fire. He stated that if NATO members in Europe allow Ukraine to use Western weapons to attack deep into Russia, it could lead to a global conflict.

Over the past two years, Putin has repeatedly warned about the possibility of a global war or even a nuclear war.

Putin issued his latest warning following statements from NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and France’s announcement of readiness to send troops to train the Ukrainian army.

The NATO Secretary General, in an interview with The Economist, said that the members of this military alliance should allow Ukraine to attack deep into Russia with Western weapons.

Some NATO members support this view, but the United States, which has been the main supplier of weapons to Ukraine during its two-year war with Russia, does not agree with such an action.

Putin, who was visiting Uzbekistan, told reporters in Tashkent that the continuous escalation of tension could have serious consequences. He questioned how the United States would respond if these serious consequences occurred in Europe, considering their strategic weapons parity.

Putin stated that Ukrainian attacks on Russia with long-range weapons require Western satellite and intelligence support, meaning the West would be directly involved in the war if such an attack occurred.

He added that sending French troops to Ukraine would be another step towards a global conflict.

Alexander Syrsky, Ukraine’s senior commander, said on Monday, May 27, after a video conversation with French Defense Minister Sébastien Lecornu, that he signed documents allowing French military trainers to soon visit Ukrainian training centers and familiarize themselves with their infrastructure and personnel.

He welcomed France’s initiative to send trainers to Ukraine to train Ukrainian soldiers.

Putin warned NATO’s European members that small countries in Europe should be aware of what they are playing with, as they have small territories with very dense populations. Therefore, they should consider these points before talking about attacking deep into Russian territory.

According to Reuters, Russia, which controls 18% of Ukraine’s territory, continues to advance on the front lines and has recently opened a new front in the Kharkiv region.
