Putin: World War Three If THIS Happens

(RightIsRight.co) – HAPPENING NOW: In a series of statements over the last 36 hours, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned the world that if any country takes steps to establish a no-fly zone over Ukraine in an attempt to prevent his airforce from controlling the skies, he will consider that country as having entered the war.

Several military analysts opined that, in short, Putin is warning of World War Three.

As Fox News is reporting:

“Russian President Vladimir Putin said Saturday that Moscow will view any attempt by other countries to establish a no-fly zone over Ukraine as active ‘participation in the armed conflict.’

“‘We hear calls to impose a no-fly zone over Ukraine,’ he said, during a meeting with flight attendants from Russian airlines, according to The New York Times.

“‘It is impossible to do from Ukrainian territory — it can only be done from the territory of other states. But any moves in such direction will be seen by us as participation in an armed conflict by the country that will create threats to our servicemen,’ Putin cautioned.

“‘That very second, we will view them as participants of the military conflict, and it would not matter what members they are,’ the Russian president said.” [emphasis added]

Putin went even further.

“Putin pledged that the ‘realization’ of demands to do so would ‘bring catastrophic results not only to Europe, but to the whole world’ and called western sanctions against Russia ‘akin to a declaration of war.’ [emphasis added]

NATO is taking the threat as a deadly serious one. Even though the Ukrainian president has requested that NATO establish a no-fly zone over Ukraine, NATO is not complying with the request.
