Is Vladimir Putin going to conquer the whole of Ukraine? Since 2005, the Kremlin chief has been moving towards the same goal: rebuilding a wall between NATO and Russia.

As early as 2005, Vladimir Putin described the dissolution of the former Soviet Union. “The Greatest Geopolitical Disaster of the Twentieth Century”. Following the fall of the Berlin Wall (Germany) in 1991 and the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the former Soviet Union lost much of its territory. Vladimir Putin, a young KGB official and a pure product of the former Soviet Union, did not approve of NATO’s march east.

Then he makes a conviction. “There is a whole ideological element around the concept of the Russian world, the idea that the various Slavic peoples who comprise the old Russian Empire are actually the same people and that they should be united within the same entity.”Former diplomat Mary Dumoulin analyzes.

Georgia, Crimea, the Donetsk and Lugansk republics of the Donbass, as well as pro-Russian Transnistria in Moldova: Georgia, Crimea, and the Kremlin will be under the influence of this theory. The occupation of Ukraine is therefore the next step. Vladimir Putin wants to build a pro-Russian government there, to rebuild a wall between NATO and Russia.
