“The real perpetrators of the conflict between Ukraine and Russia are not these two countries, but, at least in part, a trio of provocateurs: NATO, the United States and the EU,” TASS quoted the French politician as saying.
Masson criticized the very existence of NATO, which was supposed to be abolished after the collapse of the Warsaw Pact (Warsaw Pact Organization – ed.).
Masson also noted that the West actually encircled Russia, “entering the territories that historically belonged to Russia.”
“What this trio of provocateurs did by encircling Russia is ten times worse than deploying missiles in Cuba,” said the French senator, referring to the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.
