Putin Raises Alarm Over Potential NATO Military Bases in Ukraine

Sounds like this is a red line for Russia that would trigger another 'Crimea'

Russian President Vladimir Putin said during his annual Q&A session on Wednesday that he was deeply concerned over the military exploitation of Ukrainian territory by Western countries.

“I am concerned over another, more fundamental thing, namely that the military exploitation of Ukrainian territory is starting to unfold,” Putin emphasized.

As the Russian leader stressed, the Ukrainian Constitution disallows the presence of foreign military bases there.

That being said, the Ukrainian Fundamental Law (Constitution) does permit the establishment of training centers or some other forms of cooperation in the military sphere, the head of state noted.

“However, the military exploitation of the territory that directly borders on our country, this process creates considerable security problems for us. This now concerns the vital interests of the Russian Federation and the people of Russia,” Putin highlighted.

“This is what raises our concern and we must think about that,” the Russian leader said, pointing out that this is not at all about attempts to ‘take digs” at Russia by any means.

    It is time to get ready to ” fix” the Ukrainian problem and territory threats…The best, split Ukraine on bigger Russian speaking territory, 1000 km into U-kraine…

      No, they should take all of it save for a small segment at the very western edge around Lvov. Basically, create a small neonazi verion of the Donbass republics on that side of the country and ship all the nutcases there.

      Russia is now ready, its military modernized, its economy now largely sanction proof. They will act after German elections this fall.

    Putin allowed the buildup of NATO to go on for too long; Russia will now find it difficult to stop it unless Russia does what the zionists?West do and just bomb the establishment over ‘national security’ concerns; the US/NATO and israel have set precedents that Russia can use as justification.

    Putin will continue to wait on the Empire to collapse. If Putin does nothing the Empire will be firmly established on Russia’s border when it enters its death throes, and lashes out at everything. With the standoff distance between NATO, and Moscow becoming so close the only defense Moscow will have is a first strike. Putin had better stop this now.
