“The supply of heavy weapons will not only drag European countries into a military conflict, but will also bring the official recognition of World War III closer,” the former parliamentarian said in an interview with RIA Novosti.
According to him, the new weapons will burn in the same way as the old ones, but all this will lead to new victims and an escalation of the conflict, which is very beneficial for someone, but not for the Europeans.
Gerdt pointed out that EU leaders are forced in their decisions, because the US has compromising evidence on each of them. “This also applies to our country,” he said, adding that only the coming to power in Germany of new forces determined to protect the country’s interests will make it possible to ban the supply of weapons, lift the sanctions policy and call for the parties to the conflict to start negotiations.
Earlier, the Secretary General of the North Atlantic Alliance, Jens Stoltenberg, said that decisions on the supply of heavy weapons to Kyiv will be made during a meeting at the US airbase in Ramstein, which will take place on January 20. . He clarified that NATO partners are aware of Kyiv’s need for main battle tanks, including the German Leopard 2.
Let us remember that Moscow has repeatedly warned Western leaders about the perniciousness of the endless supply of weapons to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov noted that sponsoring the Kyiv regime with weapons only delays the settlement of the conflict through negotiations.
