With the eyes of the world focused on the war in Ukraine and the stalemate in the talks between the Greeks and the EU, today former U.S. Treasury official, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, explained to King World News why Russian President, Vladimir Putin, has just warned the West that it faces terrifying consequences.

Former U.S. Treasury official, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts:  “The U.S. demonization of Russia and Russian President, Vladimir Putin, has resulted in alienating those Russians who were supportive of the West and the United States.  The constant demonization of Russia and Putin has galvanized the Russian people behind their president.

Putin More Popular Than Any Leader In The World

Just today it was reported that Russian President, Vladimir Putin, has a staggering 85 percent approval rating in Russia.  No politician in the West or anywhere else in the world has approval numbers anywhere close to that.  So the West has completely and utterly failed in its attempt to force a change in political leadership in Russia.

Ukraine Humiliated And Defeated

Now the question is:  What about Ukraine?  The Ukrainian military has failed in eastern Ukraine.  The pro-Russian people and their forces have defeated the Ukrainian Army on all fronts and the Ukrainian military is thoroughly demoralized and humiliated.

IMF Breaking Rules To Support Bankrupt Ukraine’s War Effort

Now the question becomes:  What about the survival of the Ukrainian government?  Under their own rules, the IMF cannot lend to countries that are at war.  The IMF is not supposed to have their funds used to support a war effort or to enter a conflict on the side of one party.

The IMF also is not supposed to lend to bankrupt countries.  Well, Ukraine is clearly bankrupt.  But Western institutions are following Washington’s lead and since Washington is lawless, all entities in the West are becoming lawless.

Merkel And Hollande Worried

Meanwhile, chess master Putin may simply be waiting until Ukraine collapses economically and militarily later this year. Ukraine is now facing economic and military collapse and Merkel and Hollande are desperately trying to stop Washington from worsening the crisis.  They have realized that Washington doesn’t care about Europe's fate or the risks to which Washington subjects Europeans as Washington strives for hegemony over Russia.

War With Russia An Act Of Suicide

Europe has realized that Washington is pushing them into a war.  Germany and France know that a war with Russia would be an act of suicide.  They are not going to go along with that.  They are distancing themselves from Washington’s aggressive policies.

Putin’s Warns West Of Terrifying Consequences

Russia just conducted their largest nuclear drills in history.  Putin is reminding the West that Russia will not sacrifice its national interests to Washington's demands.  Putin can’t allow Russia to be attacked.  The only way Russia can be attacked is if military arms flow through Europe to the eastern front.  Putin has made it clear with his nuclear exercises that this will have dire consequences for Europe.

Putin is letting the European governments know that if they enable Washington’s aggression against Russia, then they are at risk.  In other words, Putin will not allow Europe to enable Washington to bring war to Russia with no consequences to Europe.” ***ALSO JUST RELEASED: Former White House Budget Director Warns Greek Crisis Now Threatening The Entire Global Financial System CLICK HERE.
