Predictions of Putin, made at the Munich security conference in 2007, have come true. This was stated by the Chairman of the European Parliament Alexander Lambsdorff.
“Unfortunately, some of the things described in 2007 by President Putin, in fact, happened, but then I wonder why this happened and how to avoid the development of negative tendencies and change them to positive,” he said.
At the Munich conference in 2007, Vladimir Putin condemned the unipolarity of international politics, which the United States creates. He also noted the use of NATO forces to bypass UN charters and the loosening of the situation in the Middle East is provoking a new nuclear arms race. According to the President of the Russian Federation, these actions could lead to the growth of extremism, reports RIA Novosti.
