ROME-“If a part of the population is overexalted and Putin is forced to use the heavy hand, we maybe in 2 to 5 years we will be facing a catastrophe.
” said Professor Alessandro Orsini, who spoke this way on Cartabianca about the developments in the war between Ukraine and Russia.
“Everything I predicted is happening. It is an existential war for Russia. Russia is willing to put its existence on the line. Putin at this point has to respond with disproportionate use of violence, we all expect a slaughter.” He continued.
“If the war goes on, I hope that Russia does not conquer Odessa: this would put NATO in contact with the Russian army through Romania. If Russia conquers Odessa, in a month or 5 years, it is very bad for Italy. Our country is weak, it does not have the strength to face a long-term war with Russia,” he concluded.
