Vladimir Putin chose the path that leads him to a catastrophe, there is no doubt – said in “Fakty po Faktach” the former head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and longtime diplomat, professor Adam Daniel Rotfeld, commented on the Russian invasion of Ukraine. He explained that the “catastrophe” was, among other things, that Russia had entered a path “with no exit”.
Professor Adam Daniel Rotfeld from the “Artes Liberales” department of the University of Warsaw, a former minister of foreign affairs and a longtime diplomat, spoke in “Fakty po Faktach” on TVN24 about the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
In his opinion, the Russian president Vladimir Putin “he chose the path that leads him to catastrophe.”
– And the catastrophe is that Russia it entered the road not only without a way out, but on a road which is a kind of announcement that Russia will change in such a direction that it will become a police and military dictatorship, because the war will last forever – he said. – Forever, that is, as long as the elite that is ruling Russia today remains in power – he explained.
He assessed that “even if Putin suddenly left, voluntarily or was removed, this elite would remain in power.” – There are tens and hundreds of thousands [osób – przyp. red.] corrupt police and military apparatus, he stressed. – Therefore, the democratization of Russia is a necessity. A necessity for Russia, in the interest of Russia, added Rotfeld.
