Ukrainian boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko said in a recent interview that Russian President Vladimir Putin could set off a third World War. The 38-year old world heavyweight champion said in an interview with sports daily L’Equipe that Putin’s actions in eastern Ukraine could be a precursor to the next World War, reports AFP.

‘In five or 20 years, Putin will apologize’

His remarks came just days after the Russian President revealed in a documentary how he secretly planned the annexation of Crimea. Blaming Western countries for the Ukraine crisis, the leader said Russia was fully prepared to use nuclear weapons “if necessary.” Russia annexed Crimea in March last year. Putin said in the documentary that the ouster of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was an armed coup “masterminded by our American friends.”

On Tuesday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that Russia would not give back Crimea to Ukraine despite warnings from the European Union and the U.S. that they won’t drop sanctions against Russia. Peskov said Crimea was an integral part of the Russian Federation and “the subject of our regions is not up for discussion.”

Crimea was part of the former Soviet Union until 1954 when the then Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev gave it to Ukraine. Wladimir Klitschko, an Olympic champion in 1996, said the war in eastern Ukraine made no sense because Ukraine and Russia “are like brothers.” In years to come, Putin will apologize for the aggression and annexation of Crimea, he added.

Europe must show Vladimir Putin where the limits are

When asked what he would say to the Russian President when he came face to face with him, Klitschko responded, “That he is making the same mistakes that have been made in the past.” After witnessing the consequences of the second World War, you just can’t disregard international laws. So far, the fight between Ukrainian government forces and Russia-backed separatists has claimed more than 6,000 lives.

Klitschko urged the Western countries to get more forceful in dealing with Putin. He said the European community was still sleeping, so Putin was doing whatever he wanted to.

  1. Of course you are a propagandist. And I don’t hate you. You have a job to do. Everyone has bills to pay. As for things changing in America, of course they changed. Had we been at the mercy of Neo-cons, we would have ended Human existence already. Our Neo-cons are easily as nutty as you are. Like you and other Russian propagandists, they preach nationalism. Except their version is the American brand. Nationalism, whether it is Russian or American is the belief system of idiots. Of those too weak to question the stupidity put in front of them. I can’t blame most Russian citizens. Many cannot confront their government because for fear of being killed or imprisoned. But in America we have idiots like you, who don’t even have gun to their heads. They are too weak to question gung-ho nationalism that has wrecked havoc with our economy, killed American soldiers, and millions of innocents.

    But in the end, that is the difference between you and I. You have your nose so far up Putin’s anus, you can’t render one pitiful criticism of a foreign policy that has isolated Russia, created fear among the former Soviet states, wrecked havoc with your own economy, and killed Russians and non-Russians alike.

    Russian Propagandists all read from the same script. Somehow, we don’t have critiques of own country. We wrote book on critiquing our country. You wouldn’t know half of what you know now if it were not for Americans giving testimony, doing reporting, and telling the truth about what happens here. But you can’t do it, and maybe it is because you have some fear.

    If that is the truth, then I pity you.

    But some of us don’t want to be like you. . .deaf, dumb, and blind, repeating the same mantra all again and again, like an old record that has a scratch.

  2. I’m hardly a Russian propagandist, you Borg bot. There is plenty of criticism of Putin in Russia, just because you can’t read Russian media and read it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Whether it’s Reagan, Clinton, Bush or Obama, nothing changes in America – it’s all different puppets of the same rulers. Borg bots can’t tell that because they imagine subtle differences. Well Putin’s term has also had subtle differences. Borg bots focus on campaign speeches, not what is done in office. Because you are gullible fools and American supremacists (hidden under the euphemism “exceptionalists”).

    And if your bot brain can wrap itself around this: I’m not Russian, or a partisan. I call each event as I see it. Yes, I know, it’s radical for a bot to meet someone who thinks for himself and doesn’t pick one of 2 or 3 pre-packaged ideologies. Bot minds can’t comprehend that – it’s against the whole slave to the hive queen thing.

    Of one thing I am sure: the same shadow gov’t will rule the USA after Jan. 2017 as is ruling it now, and this shadow government, you don’t even have a snowball’s chance in **** to vote for.

    BTW, as your laughable prediction about Putin, it reminds me of J. Kirkpatrick’s classical distinction between “authoritarian” and “totalitarian” regimes, made just a few years before all the totalitarian regimes collapsed but her beloved authoritarian ones survived. I.e., it is worthless.

    But see what “hope” and “change” gets you in ‘Murica – more of the same, more of the same, and more of the same.

  3. This was a long time ago. Anyway, I will respond. You see there is a difference between you and I. You claim the West is like the Borg, but even you Russian propagandists recognize how easily it is for people in the West to criticize their own governments and leaders. That brings about the possibility for governments to change. But the true Borg Empire is Russia. Because they had Putin yesterday. They have him today. And they will have him tomorrow.

    And it is your choice. You can choose whatever destiny you wish.

    But America’s leader today is Obama. Tomorrow it might be Clinton or Palin. And our country’s behavior will change. Either it will get more aggressive or more passive.

    Which we will get? I am not certain. But we are all certain of one thing.

    Putin. For as long as he breathes air.

  4. A boxing champion says Putin will start WW3 and you write an article about it.

    I think in ten years chimps will have evolved enough to use iPhones. Can you please write an article about me now?

  5. Last world war was over land yes and another thing i can’t remember you get the picture US is trying to prevent a world war here

  6. Oh, gee, aren’t you brilliant. Putin was elected and has an 86% approval rating. If that makes Russians “slaves” and Putin a “dictator”, wow, it’s unfathomable where to even start with your utter idiocy.

  7. Russian citizens have become Pukin slaves. Pity. Just when the rest of the world had democratic hopes for Russia, they get a fascist dictator.

  8. Russia is not the to worry about using nuclear weapons, I would be more afraid of the U.S.,seeing that they already used them on innocent human beings TWICE,and the threat was not even there to use them,Japan was on the verge of having to surrender anyway,

  9. how can you dare to say something like that is not putin who could ignite world war 3 is nato and the u.s.a playing hero provoking and moving forces around russia border what you expect they should do sit down and watch ..

  10. Didn’t invade Ukraine,get that right. As for WW III get real ,more like the end of the world as we know it.Itchy skin,blister skin,mutant baby.Smell of rotting people roaches will rule. We have NATO to blame ,stupid army with nothing to do.but try to look like its worth America taxpayer money. 70% of budget U S taxpayer money . Hope Putin run those Nazi out Kiev. Nazi they are.

  11. Yeah ok fine. We’ll give you the idiot of the year award since you seem to know everything and are a mr know it all. you already know everything about everything in the entire world. so no use me coming to europe and defending an idiot german who already knows it all. congrats bud. make sure to raise arms high when your ole putin buddy arrives, cause i’m Sure not going to care. enjoy your idiot of the year award, you have Definitely earned it!! have a nice day! outta here.

  12. Nobody over here cares about crimea or ukraine.” Few people do, but those who do have the power – they control the US media, purse and guns, and they have convinced many Americans to care with their lies and propaganda.

    Believe me, Enough US citizens will put enough pressure on congress that they will give up giving ukraine, crimea, Any help or weapons.” I hope you’re right, but in general, Congress doesn’t care what people think. They do what their masters (which are definitely not their constituents) tell them to do

    Whether or How Putin phrased his, put nuclear forces on alert. His, INTENT, was to let All the US citizens know he would nuke them over a peice of land.” No, his intent was to let the US armed forces know that he is prepared to defend Crimea and that they shouldn’t get any ideas about invading there.

    his Phrasing “how” he would nuke and kill us all” What? I can’t respond to nonsense. He said absolutely nothing of the sort, you must have some problem comprehending basic language / concepts so I guess it is ponitless to continue the discussion.

    We invaded iraq, afgan, panama, etc, etc, to Help people, to free oppressed people.” LMAO. That’s absurd. I guess you yourself are a war-mongerer, you support invading countries because you think they want you to kill and destroy them. Sure they do – liberation bombs, right?

    I agree US should stop meddling in other countries, stop invading them, stop destroying them, stop subjugating them, stop blackmaiing them, stop threatening and coercing them, stop looting them. But writing letters to Congress sure ain’t gona accomplish that. No, the system is completly corrupt. Congress doesn’t care what the American people think – they are a den of corrupt puppets.

  13. You missed the whole point! Nobody over here cares about crimea or ukraine. Let Putin have them. He can do what he wants with them. Believe me, Enough US citizens will put enough pressure on congress that they will give up giving ukraine, crimea, Any help or weapons. Let Putin and Russia worry about ukraine and crimea. And your right again. Nobody cares if he Walked in to crimea, invaded it, or if ukraine gave Putin crimea as a gift! Putin can have it. If ukraine and crimea are happy being russian, fine, if not, oh well. Russia wants it, have at it. Whether or How Putin phrased his, put nuclear forces on alert. His, INTENT, was to let All the US citizens know he would nuke them over a peice of land. and WE are fear and war mongers. Please. I lost All respect for Putin with his Phrasing “how” he would nuke and kill us all. What he Said or Not said, he intended for it to be understood he would nuke and kill all American citizens. Putin needs to review MAD and wake up. The world, Had respect for Putin until his comments, However he Intended or Phrased them. He got his nuke and kill you all point across, quite well. So Have ukriane, and crimea, nuke em if Putin feels like it, Honestly don’t care anymore. Don’t care to hear about Putin, or ukraine or crimea or russia. Don’t want to trade with them anymore either. A guy, who would nuke and kill us all, trade with him and his country, Forget him! I used the word Forget because you can’t use the other word on here. We invaded iraq, afgan, panama, etc, etc, to Help people, to free oppressed people. But, Putin is right. The US needs to take it’s money, military and get out of Germany, Japan, Europe. Let Europe worry about Europe. The American people, if Europe would get the Message Already. Are Sooooo tired of having to send our troops and money over there. If Germany can’t defend themselves, TOUGH! Japan, Iraq for Isis, tough. That’s Their problem, Not the American people! Your right, we Need to change a lot of members of Congress here in the US. Elect people who are or have said they Want to close them bases in Europe, let Europe defend itself and worry about itself. Tired of giving Foreign aid to Europe and the middle east. If Iraq can’t defend themselves, Tough,but we need to get out of there, stay out of there, and let the chips fall where they may. The world can deal with who is left over there when they are all done. As far as Putin, fine, You stay over there in Russia Mr Putin, and we will stay over here. We will keep our money and trade over here too! If we don’t have enough oil, Tough, we will do Without! I would rather do without! You would be surprised how many Americans are starting a grass roots effort to Persuade members of congress to let Putin Have crimea, ukraine and whatever else he wants. Forget Nato, get rid of it. Seriously! American people are so Tired of sending money to europe, troops, aid, etc. Let Putin have it! If President Obama says a word about sending aid or military to Ukraine or crimea. Congress needs to immediately start Impeachment proceedings against him, and the American citizens will back it! Americans want out of ukraine, crimea, germany, europe so bad that it is not funny! Congress then needs to vote to cut all funding and aid!

  14. I, and most of the US country have No interest in Crimea at all“. You may not, but your rulers do, and their voice counts far more than yours.

    Invades Ukraine, invades Crimea“. There is no reliable evidence of this. What we have clear evidence of: US/NATO invading Grenada, Panama, Iraq (twice), Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, etc. If you are looking for war-mongers you should start looking at Washington, London and Tel Aviv, they’re constantly attacking someone or another.

    Putin would Nuke the US over Land“. That’s not what he said – he reportedly said Russia was prepared to place nuclear weapons on alert if it were attacked. I.e., if necessary. That is about 2 trillion miles from your paranoid interpretation.

    Putin is the Only Modern leader that has Ever said he was actually going to activate his nukes over a peice of land, crimea.” Well he never said that but, yes, every country which possesses nuclear weapons makes an implicit threat to use them if they are attacked. What other purpose is there, just to spend the countless billions to create and maintain them? There’s no news there, except for typical Western propaganda, which an be summed up as fear-mongering, war-mongering, and hate-mongering.

  15. First of all. We need to take our conversation over to another site, such as Msn, Opolitical, etc, Valuewalk seems to be censoring everything you say. I am Re posting this reply having taken Out anything I thought they censored the First time. We’ll see if it gets posted. Fill in the blanks yourself or move the conversation to a non censoring site. I don’t or US, don’t want Putin to submit to anyone or
    anything. Basically, I, and most of the US country have No interest in
    Crimea at all. Don’t really care who owns it. Putin can stick it for all any of us care.. Now the Problem with Putin is, or are.
    Putin does what he feels like. Invades Ukraine, invades Crimea, etc,
    etc. I didn’t really care what Putin did, until last week, when he said
    he was ready to put Russia Nukes in the air over Crimea. You mean,
    really, Putin would Nuke the US over Land. Over a piece of Land, he
    would nuke and kill Millions of people. Really? Honestly? Well then I
    lost All respect for Putin. Hitler did the same thing. Kill everyone in
    sight over Land. Putin can stick Crimea and Ukraine…now for
    all We care. He can Have Ukraine, crimea. Let the Ukrianians and
    crimeans put up with Putin. Putin and his people can stay over there,
    and we will stay over here. We don’t need to trade with each other
    either. Putin is the Only Modern leader that has Ever said he was
    actually going to activate his nukes over a peice of land, crimea. He
    fire his nukes and kill Millions over Land. Fine, Putin can have Ukraine
    and Crimea, Do what he wants with them. As a Country of People, not the US
    government, as a Country of “People”. We will NEVER forget that Putin
    threatened to nuke and Kill us All over a piece of Land!!! I don’t want
    to ever hear Putin’s name anymore. And I, or We, don’t even want to
    trade with you as a country. You take care of yourselves and we’ll take care
    of ourselves, and from now on, Leave us the,,, Alone!

  16. First of all. I don’t or Us don’t want Putin to submit to anyone or anything. Basically, I, and most of the US country have No interest in Crimea at all. Don’t really care who owns it. Putin can stick it up his azz for all any of us care.. Now the Problem with Putin is, or are. Putin does what he feels like.

  17. Kim Jong Un…..is that you??? It sure sounds like an idiotic North Korean that spews enough bullshit to fertilize NK crops. Silly boy, Russia wants to act like a player, but they’re not. Russia wants to act like they have control, but they don’t. Simply put, Russia’s economy would implode in months if they tried to man up and play the big bad Soviet bear card again.

  18. It’s a long and difficult struggle. A majority of Americans have good intentions, but are hopelesly brainwashed by our demonic rulers. I have long thought that 9/11 is the Achilles Heel of these rulers – objectively it is patently obvious that the three towers were expertly demolished. If Americans come to realize that their rulers are responsible for that horrific crime, and deceitfully used it to justify illegal wars of conquest, unlawful surveillance and the de facto overthrow of the constitutional order, there is hope these despicable rulers will be overthrown.

  19. Ahh, you’re a bloody British tool that doesn’t know the meaning of elucidation. Figures, from that little island of queen worshipers. Explains your 70ish IQ perfectly.

  20. No, he isn’t. Russia is not going to submit to you or your Empire of Evil. If you think the US’ need to control Crimea, which was part of Russia for centuries and that voted overwhelmingly to rejoin Russia, is worth nuclear war, well, that is many Americans’ mentality. Kill, destroy, conquer, kill, destroy, conquer – the American mantra. How sad my country is sunk to this level of global tyranny. Largely started when Americans wer too stupid to realize 9/11 was an inside job – it’s been all down into the abyss since.

  21. Another genius comment. Maybe if I work really really hard for 50 years I can write brilliant comments like you too? What do you think? I’m so envious of your acumen, knowledge and elucidation. As well as your vision to be able to see my bottle of vodka over the internet. Can you tell me too what type and color clothes I am wearing? You are so clevr, I’m sure you can!

  22. Hmm, so now Putin is to blame for Kiev sending tanks to subjugate protesters who didn’t support the violent ovethrow of their president by chauvinist nationalists who want to destroy their religion, culture and language? And it is Putin’s fault that Kiev chauvinists are shelling urban population centers, destroying homes, schools, factories, mines, hospitals, streets, cars, people, women, children, pensioners, etc.?

    Yes, sure, it’s all Putin’s fault. He is mind-controlling Bitzko, Porky and Ratz.

  23. Well technically a lot of people are already dead thanks to Putin with zero provocation to justify the means of war.

    Of course a person from Ukraine is going to take the events in a more serious tone.

  24. Which European news sites do you regularly read/ Telegraph, Guardian, “Independent”, Daily Mail? Or FAZ, Spiegel, Welt? Doesn’t matter, they’re all controlled by the ruling class and have the same essential message. And no, it’s not America that controls all that. America is ultimately controlled as well. But America is controlled so well, it is used as a tool to control many other things, too.

    I read a lot of media, including people’s media -internet has largely liberated me from the controlled media. Of course the controlled media tells you all the other media lies and to listen only to their propaganda – and the sheeple go Baa, baaa!

    “Right-wing adherents”. LMAO. Sorry my viewpoints undoubtedly transcend your understanding by multiple levels. I stopped being a sheep a long time ago and it has taken a lot of close paying attention and analysis to arrive where I am now. But I certainly don’t fit into any of the standard paradigms. In particular “right” and “left” are prison paradigms, and both are controlled by the same powers, of which I am free.

    Whether the Euro collapses or the EU is centralized further is an open question. My hypothesis is that the ruling class will use its full efforts to cause further centralization. Perhaps even arranging for some provocations to ensure it happens (indeed I think this manufactured crisis with Russia is part and parcel of that). But we will see …

  25. I’ve spent time in Europe, and I regularly read European news sites. I’m not seeing what you claim. But perhaps that’s because America controls all the European news too, right? I can certainly see the evidence of your preference for “alternative media”.

    I realize there are plenty of right-wing adherents in Germany, of which you apparently are one. But then, I foresee the demise of the current form of the EU, very soon. Certainly the Euro’s days are numbered. I fully expect the EU to reform in a smaller, core group. Exciting times.

  26. I’m German-American and have spent many years living in Germany, most recently in Berlin for a year. So I know from personal experience speaking with Germans. There are also various polls – a recent one you can find by searching for (I tried posting a ink but it blocked my post): “Majority of Germans against NATO Troops in Eastern Europe and for German Neutrality”.

    “:Why can’t Germans have a free and open debate?” Because Germany is an occupied country and the mass media is controlled just like in the US, China or Russia.

    I know for a fact Europeans voted “no” on the EU Constitution. Starting with France and Denmark IIRC. This despite the fact that the propaganda from state and media organs was almost unanimously in favor. But of course free discussion and debate was not had, never is really in the controlled democracies of the “West”.

    Cite my proof? It’s called the power of observation over my lifetime. You seem like a nicely brainwashed American, trying to open your eyes from the decades of propaganda pumped into you is a Herculean task and not suited to disqus. I suggest spending much time on alternative media and reading alternate viewpoints that aren’t part of the “West”‘s echo chamber for a number of years until you are deprogrammed.

  27. Well he appears to have more common sense than putin so maybe putin needs battered around the head and beat the common sense into him.

  28. It’s only a matter of time until America begins to arm Ukrainians. The Pentagon is pushing for it, only Obama (as usual) is procrastinating. But it will happen.

    Most of the world is turning anti-Russia. You can’t continually threaten the use of nuclear weapons (of which Russia would also be destroyed), continually test sovereign borders with military assets, and continually lie to the world about the facts in Ukraine. Russia is a laughingstock.

  29. Crimea was Ukraine territory given to Ukraine by Russia 60 years ago, until your leader putin thought he would send his troops in and steal it back. Now theft is not Legal, look in your russian dictionary.

  30. You state that Germans don’t think US provides them any security. Cite your proof of such a statement.
    Why can’t Germans have a free and open debate?
    You think Europeans voted no to forming and joining the EU?
    Cite your proof that America (or any other country) controls the EU.

    Your entire argument is without merit.

  31. Danny, you are the D#ck, Crimea was given to Ukraine legally by russia 60 years ago, until one year ago your Mr. Putin decided he would send his troops in and steal it back. That makes you Putin a land thief and the rest of the world will not stand for it!!

  32. What do you know what the majority wants? Germans for sure don’t think US troops provide them any security. Whatever security they can get is provided by NATO, for which US troops need not be stationed there. Personally I think the greatest threat Germany faces comes from the US neo-cons and the other imperial supremacists of various stripes that dominate the US foreign policy and military establishments.

    It would be interesting, though, if Germany could have a free and open debate (i.e., the media would stop being fully controlled by US and people would be free to fully attack US and NATO in an open and free debate) for a period and then have a referendum on NATO membership and US troop occupation.

    But of course, just like Europeans never got to vote on joining EU (well, they did, but they all said no, after that the whole voting thing was quickly dispensed with), Germans don’t get to vote on kicking out NATO. The entire German establishment is controlled by the US, and has been since the end of the war. It’s still an occupation force. Period.

  33. Yes, Putin certainly could start world war 3. If he wants to completely destroy mother Russia, he can push the button. The world will not back down from standing against his aggression in Ukraine. And if Putin dares to try a similar adventure in Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania or any other NATO country, he’ll discover just how quickly things will turn against him. We call his bluster.

  34. Don, your a D#ck! Considering putin’s present posturing and actions its quite clear to anyone with half a brain who will start World war 3 and its not the USA.

  35. It’s simply that democracy rules, and the majorities of those countries want the security that comes with close alliance with America. This won’t change.

  36. I’m not sure how Russia feels about it, do you have a white paper or what do you base it on?

    Yes, you are right of course, Japan and Germany are not democracies, they are puppet regimes of the US and its occupying forces. What the people think doesn’t matter. At least, you realize that much – there is some hope :)

    Me, if I were German chancellor and NSA were spying on my private cellphone, I would have kicked out the US ambassador. Any independent country would. Only slaves wouldn’t.

  37. You’re confusing some citizen opinion with government opinion. The Japanese government hasn’t demanded the US exit, nor has Germany. And neither will, much to Russian dismay.

    And I guess Russia will have to toughen up … as things are going to get very dicey around there. The economy is only in the beginning stages of decline. Much worse is coming.

  38. all they have to do is say so“. LMAO. Sure. Like US left Okinawa though clearly Japanese want them the f* out. Maybe you can answer: why are US troops there? Hmmm?

    At to Russia being 3rd world country – you’re complete incapacity to overlook US propaganda and understand the world is demonstrated by every sentence you write. US played its trump card with financial sanctions – and Russia was hurt, but, as Nietzsche wrote, “what does not kill [Russia], makes [Russia] stronger” :) Compared to past “:interventions” by the West – Napoleonic wars, WW I, Bolshevik revolution, WW II, Yeltsin’s “privatization” and de-industrialization – the current economic skirmish is a minor annoyance. Yet Russia came out strong from all of them.

    Do not underestimate Russia based on the neo-con vermin that run the US. One day they will rot in prison where they deserve to be.

  39. If Germany wants the US to leave the bases there, all they have to do is say so. The German government isn’t saying so.

    But yes, we will see. Instead, I see another scenario approaching. One of Russia becoming a third world nation, economically. Time will tell.

  40. We will see. Germany accusing NATO’s US-puppet-leader Breedlove’s “dangerous propaganda”; Germany condemning NSA spying on Merkel’s private telephone; Nuland saying “F* EU” (which everyone knows means “F* Merkel”); etc.

    Germany is tired of being occupied by US for 70 years. US needs to get out of Germany. Freedom to Germany! Amies raus!

  41. Yes, Americans think they are “exceptional” and must have “full-spectrum dominance” over the world.

    This is a euphemism for global tyranny, global dictatorship and global thuggery.

    The US is making an enemy of the whole world. Even Europe is on the verge of breaking with US. The neo-cons should all be arrested and prosecuted for war crimes.

    Enough is enough! Stop your bloody global war-mongering, droning, blackmailing and looting, USA!

  42. Yes, Putin certainly could start WW3. If he wants to completely destroy mother Russia, let him push the button. The world will not back down from standing against his aggression in Ukraine, so he can threaten all he wants. And if he dares to try a similar adventure in Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania or any other NATO country, he’ll discover just how quickly things will turn against him. We call his bluster.

  43. So clearly you are an anti-Russian racist with your first comment. Some brainwashed American who thinks he knows everything but has never left his momma’s basement? Am I right?

    Re-unification of Crimea with Russia was unlike any of the US actions, as it was legal and largely peaceful (nobody was killed or even injured except one terrorist attack by a Ukrainian nationalist). US destroys civilizations and gloats about it, about how US is “exceptional” (exceptionally evil, brutal, violent, thuggish, aggressive and destructive, yes).

    You imperialist war criminal.

  44. Even if that were true (which it isn’t), after what Germany did to Russia in WW II, they hardly have room to complain about it. 20 million+ Russians were outright killed. I suppose next you will say they should have fought Germany off with flowers and cookies?

  45. Yes, Putin could start WW3. If he wants to completely destroy mother Russia, let him push that button. The world will not back down from standing against his aggression in Ukraine, threaten all he wants. And if he dares to try a similar adventure in Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania or any other NATO country, he’ll discover just how quickly things will turn against him. We call his bluster.

  46. Don’t know much about NATO expansion history, eh? Expansion (note 10 years ago, when you claim NATO was “on the brink of disbanding”, was 2004):

    1990: E. Germany
    1999: Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland
    2004: Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia
    2009: Albania, Croatia
    Invited: Georgia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia
    Other countries in the works (Finland, Moldova, Serbia, Sweden, Ukraine)

    You know nothing of Yanukovych. And it was not people in Ukraine making “their own decisions”. It was a violent coup.

    US” bad rap is not just Iraq, it’s due to a century of constant war-mongering and global tyranny and thuggery.

  47. Klitschko needs to stick to boxing and medicine (or is that the other brother?). If anyone will cause World War III it’s the U.S. and its aim of world domination

  48. So we just leave it to a Russian criminal (redundant, I know) to walk into a separate, sovereign country and annex it because a puppet underling on the criminal’s payroll urges a B.S. false equivalency to the U.S.’s own actions? I don’t think so, criminal.

  49. Actually Kiev is busy doing all the killings, with your gleeful support. So don’t pretend you care about lives. You probably cheered as all the lives were extinguished in Panama, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in Libya, in Syria, etc. People like you don’t care about lives. You care about destroying anyone who doesn’t follow your masters’ orders. You just have the mentality of a slave.

  50. Mafia tactics: you mean US and NATO destroying civilization after civilization based on lies and excuses, but in reality to subjugate them?

    Control over people: you mean the ever-expanding Borg Empire, headquartered in Washington and London?

    Brings the world to extinction: you mean the Borg “West”, the destroyer of worlds?

  51. Actually he answered a question in line with Russian nuclear doctrine. Perhaps he should have ignored the question, but Russia, US, China, India, Pakistan, Israel, all are ready to use nuclear weapons if they are attacked. That’s why they have them.

    And I think it’s a useful reminder to Americans to mind their own business. Generally US likes going around the world completely destroying places, killing millions, and Americans cheer with glee. That nauseating movie “Sniper”, and it’s reception in the US, made the point of how revolting America’s imperialism is. So now these people, who are used to goring around the world destroying civilizations for kicks, can contemplate, if it is worth it for them to have their own civilization destroyed.

    You don’t get to attack Russia and walk away unscathed like you have done in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Pakistan and countless other places. They can fight back. You can’t keep the carnage “over there” and laugh as you destroy yet another civilization.

    It’s a good warning. Warnings can prevent unpleasant and catastrophic consequences. US stay the heck out of Ukraine and don’t even think about arming Ukraine to re-claim Crimea! Don’t even think about expanding the proxy war into Russia! The world is not your’s to conquer and destroy at your whims! And neo-cons, get the heck out of US and go back to your mother land!

  52. what an idiot you are. i hope you havent reproduced yet. Nfl season? hahahaha. who gives a shit about a handball game. stupid boring sport for fat american. you need to get a life and stop threatening the life of a president of another country otherwise that drill will be placed on you by FSB.

  53. Did the border change in Koenigsberg / Kaliningrad too? All women in East Prussia were raped by Soviet pigs. have you ever heard about Wolfskinder?

  54. Moscovy was vassal of tatars, always paying their fues to the khanate. I think would be better to give the land ti the rightful owners of this peninsula – tatars, By the way, what the fck the Russians doing is east Prussia, they killed all the men and raped all the Prussian women and moved to Koenigsberg in 1945, they liberated the region from the Nazis and then fell sick – amnesia – forgot to leave the land. This enclave inside EU is highly militarized zone… Check out

    Yasnoye, Kaliningradskaya oblast’ on google maps Street view to see how the Russians rule the occupied terriitory.

  55. Vikas needs some elementary history lessons.Crimea was part of Russia till 1954 not of Ukraine. Both Ukraine and Russia were part of Soviet Union.Maybe this part taxes the IQ of Vikas, Vikas being a value Investor and an MBA in finance.

  56. The whole world needs a reality check… I cannot believe my ears. One warhead now is worth about 200 Hiroshima bombs. The Hiroshima bomb is a toy in comparison. What the hell is happening to the world ? The humankind’s most dangerous trait is “complacency”. How quickly is world war 2 forgotten, Hiroshima & Nagasaki forgotten ?

  57. ???? What does that even mean? You mean Putin’s mafia tactics are better? He has better control over people? He brings the world to the brink of extinction better?

  58. ( defending ethnic Russians and Russian speaking Ukrainians ) ????? they are the very ones Russia is killing. btw since this old fart called putler is a daddy again explain to me what kind of daddy would risk nuclear fallout to kill his new born child is beyond belief.

  59. Even seriously bringing up the subject of using nukes is a sign of mental instability. Someone in Russia needs to drill a new earhole in this lunatic before he causes an indefinite suspension of the upcoming NFL season………..not to mention much wailing and gnashing of teeth in the motherland. The only thing that gives me some degree of comfort regarding Putin’s true intentions is the fact that shorty “really” likes the good life. Otherwise he wouldn’t have bothered to steal everything that wasn’t nailed down over there.

  60. The reasons are that the USA is invading countries on false pretexes, getting the CIa tp destabilized countries and diposing elected leaders. Time had come to stop this agression by The US and NATO who supports Us agression and guilty as the US with the UN acting unilterally to support the US even with illegal acts. Putin had decided to stop this and to maintain the dignity of Russia long ignored

  61. If WW3 takes place, it won’t be Putin that starts it, it will be the United States and NATO. How many bases, troops and nukes is Putin putting on our own borders? Push a person far enough and even the littlest guy will eventually strike back.

  62. We are not “guilty”. The NATO was not expanding. I think you have been hit in the head. Anybody can open up a history book or get a newspaper from ten years ago. NATO was on the brink of disbanding. European countries do not contribute their fair share to defense. In fact, they were trying to get away with contributing as little as possible. Everyone was in it for the money. When Ukraine had the election, Yanukovich won, no one complained. The issue was the deal for the 3 billion dollar loan. Your boy Yanukovich was even quoted that he was considering going with Europe because Putin was trying to screw Ukraine. Well, I guess Putin sweetened the deal.

    It isn’t our fault Western Ukraine smelled a rat. People in Ukraine can make their own decisions.

    As for the rest of the world, we have made a bad rep because of Iraq. But Putin’s world consists of the North Koreans and China.

    Maybe that isn’t so great.

  63. I don’t take this guy seriously and he’s just as “smart” as his brother Vitali, mayor of Kiev. He’s a good boxer, but terrible politician.

  64. That’s like pretending ALL Mexicans came recently across the border from Mexico. Within the last few decades…

    Most did but some were here when the border changed.

    …Same with Ukraine. Donbass used to be part of Russia.

  65. He sounds kind of stupid to me. Either that, or he has an agenda. Most people who know a little something about this situation know that Kiev attacked Donbass because they wanted autonomy, session or to become part of Russia and are trying to prevent Kiev from making a trade deal with the EU.

    So either he’s clueless, unlikely, or he’s deliberately misleading people….

  66. This boxer has been hit in the head too many times…

    First off, we’re more guilty than Russia. If NATO hadn’t been expanding into ex-Soviet Republics, and we allwed Russia to have a sphere of influence, like other powers (Our Monroe doctrine is still in effect) none of this would have happened.

    Second, Russia was defending ethnic Russians and Russian speaking Ukrainians living in the Donbass region. Kiev, with our support, was trying to subjugate them.

    There’s no way in the world Putin would have reacted any differently under those circumstances and most Russian leaders would have reacted the same way.

    Discrediting Putin may work in this country but most of the world can see through this stupidity and Russia will never back down. Asians, in particular, are the least likely to support our stupidity…..

  67. Look at what is going on: NATO is having sea battles in the Black Sea, Russian has called for drills in the artic, NATO is practicing in Poland, and Baltic countries, Russia has training going on next to that. We are playing around to much and an accident is going to set off a massive Earth ending war, one slip up and it can blow up in our faces. What I do not believe is that we are willing to go this close to that much danger over Ukraine begging to become part of EU, we are talking about a country so corrupt that any arms we give them will end up sold on the black market, and any money you give them goes to line the pockets of a corrupt government. Some people say that antichrist is coming and it might just be both Obama and Putin, both are acting far to dangerously, pushing to extinction of life on this planet.

  68. That is a real cheap shot. Klitschko is a highly educated man with a PhD. In addition, It is a real insult to professional boxers, the vast
    majority of whom are not “punch drunk” and are amazing athletes and people.

  69. Why would a Ukrainian want to be Russian? You may ask. A majority of he
    people who (speak) Russian in Ukraine, are the children, grandchildren
    and great grandchildren of the Russian anchor people Stalin sent into
    Ukraine after he starved to death 7 Million Ukrainian civilians, half of
    them children in the Holodomor Holocaust of 1932-33. By March of 1933,
    25,000 Ukrainian people per day died in the bread basket of the world by
    Russia’s man made famine. My moniker ID is a photo of actually eight
    children that are victims of this horrific crime carried out by Stalin’s
    KGB through a law they called Collectivism, during this duration
    Ukraine was under the Soviet regime. Under gun point ALL of the harvest
    was taken from each Ukrainian farm and family. Live stock starved to
    death as well. Stalin then sent in Russians to take over the homes and
    farms of the murdered Ukrainian families. Hence, this is how there are
    so many “really Russian ” ” Russian speaking” and “Raised with a Russian
    mentally” that came to live in Ukraine. Stalin’s Russian Holodomor
    Anchor Pods would be an accurate term for them. Stalin was coached by
    Hitler on this genocide because the Ukrainian people fought his ideology
    and resisted Soviet Communism. Ukrainian people are a nation of firmly
    democratic principles, are professionals, embrace a good education, love farming, arts,
    science, horses and are a people of faith, they wanted no part of
    Communism or Russia.

    After the fall of the USSR, Ukraine was left with the World’s 3rd
    largest Nuclear Arsenal on her land. Ukrainians are not into world
    domination, they simply want a democratic society, freedom to do as well
    as they can on their own volition with G0D’S blessings, in their
    ancestral home land Ukraine, in peace. This Nuclear Arsenal was set up
    for the Destruction and Devastation of America by Russia. America
    promised Ukraine Security Assurance and Millions of Dollars to let
    Russia dismantle it. Helping Ukraine’s economy recover from the Soviet
    impoverished years of oppression and communist corruption. The best part
    of the deal was the promise of “Security Assurance from America. That
    in the event Ukraine was attacked she would have USA boots on the ground
    protection. This agreement/ deal was signed just a mere twenty years
    ago, by president Clinton called the ” The Budapest Memorandum of 1994″.
    America, England, China,and Ukraine signed this agreement.

  70. Ok, let’s not exaggerate. He is from the one country at war. He’ll know just a little more than you about what is going on. Ali wasn’t born & raised in the country at war with Russia.

  71. This dude is still wet behind his ears and most likely ‘Punch drunk!”

    NATO fears a powerful military conflict
    and will not dare attack Crimea despite Kiev’s hopes, the
    Administrator-General of the Eurasian Observatory for Democracy &
    Elections (EODE) told Sputnik.

  72. This Guy is Nieve, to think putin would ever be sorry for anything. He really wants to rule the world. killing a couple hundred thousand will be his entertainment, its obvious he just killed 6 thousand right its just a game his mother is not around to slap him

  73. I didn’t realize that boxing champions are expert political theorists. Should we query Muhammed Ali for his thoughts on this issue?

  74. “Ukrainian boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko said in a recent interview
    that Russian President Vladimir Putin could set off a third World War”

    did it take a long thinking?

  75. That’s good that Crimea is Russian again. Otherwise, you could see your face on the Moon much earlier than that sports person predicted.
