How Will Russia Respond?

As NATO leaders gather to commemorate D-Day, they continue to ramp up plans to escalate a war with Russia.

NATO leaders keep repeating that Russia is planning to attack first. At the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, Russian President Vladimir Putin called that notion “bullshit.”

“Look, someone has imagined that Russia wants to attack NATO. Have you gone completely insane? Are you as thick as this table? Who came up with this nonsense, this bullshit?” Putin said.

“Why is this being done, really? To maintain their own position of greatness, that’s why. There’s nothing to these scary stories, intended for the townsfolk in Germany and France and elsewhere in Europe,” Putin explained.

But what if Russia is hit first? The Russian President said that he is planning “asymmetric” responses.

“If someone deems it possible to supply such weapons to the war zone, to strike our territory… why shouldn’t we supply similar weapons to those regions of the world, where they will be used against sensitive sites of these countries? We can respond asymmetrically. We will give it a thought.”

Foreign policy expert and author Gilbert Doctorow says that this would begin with “a massively destructive attack on Kiev.” He joins us today on Redacted to discuss this.
