Russian President Vladimir Putin promised a response to the “cleansing up the political field” in Ukraine. What can Putin do?
Putin promised to respond to Ukraine
During a video conference on May 14 with members of the Russian Security Council, Putin commented on the persecution of Viktor Medvedchuk, the co-chairman of the pro-Russian Ukrainian party Opposition Platform for Life.
Putin pointed out that the Ukrainian authorities, at the suggestion of the West, tend to turn the country into an antipode of Russia, “into some kind of anti-Russia.” Therefore, Moscow will constantly monitor news from Ukraine that requires special attention from the point of view of security.
