Putin calls ‘apocalyptic’ war with Ukraine ‘unlikely’

Vladimir Putin


Russian President Vladimir Putin said he hoped an apocalyptic war with Ukraine would not happen:

February 23, 2015

Mr Putin was asked if there was a real threat of war, given the situation in eastern Ukraine.

“I think that such an apocalyptic scenario is unlikely and I hope this will never happen,” he said. Mr Putin said that if the Minsk agreement was implemented, eastern Ukraine would “gradually stabilise”.

“Europe is just as interested in that as Russia. No-one wants conflict on the edge of Europe, especially armed conflict,” he said.  http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-31596634

By using the expression “apocalyptic scenario” and mentioning armed conflict “on the edge of Europe,” he seemed to be sending several messages.

The first is that armed conflict is an option for him.

The second that it would be bad for those in Ukraine who would oppose him.

The third is a message to the Baltics and many eastern European nations that they could be affected by this.

Basically, Vladimir Putin wants Europe to concede more of Ukraine to him and hopes that he can do this without war.

But many leaders in Europe do not wish to capitulate at this stage.

Calling Russia’s actions in Ukraine “illegal,” British Prime Minister David Cameron said to lawmakers Monday that more sanctions should be imposed on Russia, if pro-Russian rebels in Ukraine attempt to expand their territorial control.

“Russia must be in no doubt that any attempts by the separatists to expand their territory – whether towards Mariupol or elsewhere – will be met with further significant EU and U.S. sanctions. Russia must change course now or the economic pain it endures will only increase. In the coming days I will be speaking to fellow G7 leaders to agree how we can together ensure that the Minsk agreements do indeed bring an end to this crisis,” said Cameron.

Cameron accused Russia of enabling separatists to breach the fragile cease-fire agreements.

“Far from changing course, Russia’s totally unjustifiable and illegal actions in eastern Ukraine have reached a new level with the separatists’ blatant breach of the ceasefire to take control of Debaltseve, made possible only with the supply of Russian fighters and equipment on a very large scale,” he said.

Cameron joined voices with French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who warned Friday that sanctions could be imposed on Russia if the Minsk agreements to stabilize Ukraine were not fully implemented and the cease-fire was not observed.

Meanwhile, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said Monday that war with Ukraine was unlikely.  http://www.voanews.com/content/ukarine-military-rebel-attacks-preventing-weapons-pullback/2654669.html

It should be mentioned that not all of Europe opposes Vladimir Putin.  Part of Moldova seems to support him, there is some limited sympathy in parts of Hungary, and there is support in Serbia.  Related to that last point, a reader sent me something last night written by Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, for Defense Minister for Germany:

>Former German minister of defence : Serbia must decide between Russia and EU

Serbia will at some point have to decide between EU and Russian friendship, says former German Defence Minister Karl Theodor zu Guttenberg.

– I do not have to give any advice to Serbia . It ‘s a decision that Serbia has to make . If nothing else , if you decide to come closer to the EU , which is also a goal that meets the full support , and there is an important step that must be done to search for access to the EU . So if the EU makes decisions , which are associated with the values ​​of the EU , at some point you will have to decide whether those values ​​are more important than friendships – said Gutenberg

This does not mean to get rid one partner , but to find more options for the future of the country . And that is why I endorsed and underlined everything I said, and I think that Serbia should also be seeking new opportunities – said Gutenberg.  http://www.blic.rs/Vesti/Politika/536861/Nemacki-ministar-odbrane-Srbija-sama-da-odluci-EU-ili-Rusija

We will see what Serbia decides.  In my view, Serbia will have little choice but support Europe for a time, but it may well have many “Medes” as part of that land.  If so, Serbia ultimately will support Russia years after the start of the Great Tribulation when it turns against Europe militarily.

It should be understood that while some have improperly concluded that Russia is the prophesied “king of the North” of Daniel 11, that is not the case.

Russia, thus, is NOT biblically the power that is prophesied to takeover the USA and its Anglo-Saxon allies–Europe is (cf. Daniel 11:39). Later, however, Russia prophesied to destroy Europe (e.g. Jeremiah 51:11-32)–but this is AFTER the great tribulation.
