“Let’s put that as a problem for us, and for Europe, the war in the Donbass war between Russia and Ukraine. Let and the following issue – the completion of the whole complex of agreements involving strategic offensive weapons, the INF Treaty (Treaty on elimination of intermediate and short range between US and Russia – Ed.) Strategic offensive arms (Treaty on nuclear arms reduction between US and Russia – Ed.) etc. And, thirdly, the new order. Do these global issues component of the war between Russia and Ukraine? Actually, this is called the system of global security. Because in this case we have a local failure of the European and global security. The talks in Helsinki on strategic perspectives and the position of the United States to engage China in strategic offensive arms indicate that the security model in the world, Europe and the region does not hold water. So I hope that near the leaders of the world there are people who understand that the war between Russia and Ukraine is the failure of the model of regional, European and global security that must be addressed during the negotiation process, which has already begun on the strategic prospects for the continuation of these agreements, the establishment of a new secure order in the region, in Europe and the world,” – said the immortal.
