Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin dismissed US President Joe Biden’s assertion that Russia would attack a NATO country if events unfolded in Ukraine, labeling it as “complete nonsense.” Putin emphasized that Russia had no intent to engage in conflict with the NATO military alliance.
Biden earlier this month warned that if Putin won a victory over Ukraine then Russia would attack a NATO country. Biden offered no clear evidence for his remarks.
“It is complete nonsense – and I think President Biden understands that,” Putin said in an interview published on Sunday by Rossiya state television, saying it was an attempt by Biden to justify his “erroneous policy” on Russia.
“Russia has no reason, no interest – no geopolitical interest, neither economic, political nor military – to fight with NATO countries.”
