The statements of the former Italian Prime Minister and current leader of the Forza Italia party caused a sensation. Silvio Berlusconiwith references to war in Ukraine and the movements of the Russian president Vladimir Putina few hours before the end of the Italian election campaign.
“Putin found himself in a difficult, dramatic situation. The delegation of the two pro-Russian republics of Donbas went to Moscow, talked to everyone – with the radios, the press and televisions, with the party officials – and then they all went together to Putin and told him: “Zelensky has increased the attacks of his forces on our borders. We reached 16,000 dead. We beg you to defend us, because, otherwise, we don’t know where we might end up. Putin was pushed by the Russian people, by his party and ministers, to invent this special operation. The Russian forces were to enter Kyiv within a week, replace Zelensky with a government of good people, and after another week return home“said the “Cavalier” on Rai public television.
Silvio Berlusconi, always referring to the Russian attack on Ukraine, continued and underlined: “The Russian forces, however, met unpredictable resistance on the part of the Ukrainians, who were supported with all kinds of weapons from the West. Now the war has exceeded two hundred days, every day the death toll is increasing and the situation in Ukraine is more and more difficult to get under control because the Russian forces are scattered all over Ukraine, whereas I think they should have been confined only in the area around Kyiv”.
