MOSCOW, October 12. /TASS/. NATO should think about self-dissolution because Russia's victory in Ukraine is inevitable, Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Leonid Slutsky said on Tuesday, commenting on NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg's statements.
"The alliance (NATO - TASS) intends to continue to sponsor and directly support the terrorist regime led by its puppet [Ukrainian President Vladimir] Zelensky, because, according to the same Stoltenberg, Russia's victory in Ukraine would mean the defeat of the NATO itself. <...> I would add for myself that Russia's victory in Ukraine is inevitable. And at this point I would suggest that NATO should think about self-dissolution," Slutsky wrote on his Telegram channel.
Earlier on Tuesday, Stoltenberg said that Russian victory would be a "big defeat" for both Ukraine and NATO because it would "make the world more dangerous" and NATO countries "more vulnerable to Russian aggression." He also noted that the alliance would strengthen and maintain support for Ukraine, adding that "NATO stands with Ukraine and will stand for as long as it takes".
As Slutsky stressed, the NATO Secretary General "was uncommonly frank" in his statements. "Apparently, Russia's response to the terrorist attack on the Crimean bridge impressed NATO so much that it became no longer concerned with conspiracy <...> Only a lazy man is now not speaking about direct confirmation of NATO’s participation in the Ukrainian conflict," Slutsky stressed.
