The alleged reassurances given by the Usa to the last president of the USSR Mikhail Gorbachev on the fact that the Nato wouldn’t it have widened to the east? “I know it’s true. It was never written down but was part of Baker’s commitments (former secretary of state under Ronald Reagan ed)”. Word of the former US Secretary of State Henry Kissingerwho fell victim to a prank call by Russian comedians Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov who pretended to be the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky.
The Tass reports that believing he was speaking with President Kissinger predicted that Ukraine’s attempt to reconquer the Crimea will lead to an escalation. “I think the return of Crimea will lead to an escalation. You and I have had public differences on this issue. My impression, speaking to our people, is that they don’t believe you can take Crimea as part of the current offensive. It is a question whose solution has reached a dead end. At the same time it would be possible “to consider the possibility of convening a referendum” in Crimea for eventual reunification with Russia, added the former Secretary of State who recently turned 100.
