NATO’s intervention in the Ukraine-Russia war could tilt the conflict into a “big, colossal war” amounting to a Third World War, warned State Duma member Andrey Gurulyov on Russian State TV Russia1. Speculations around NATO directly taking part in the war have mounted on the set of the Russian State TV Russia1 since former NATO commander-in-chief Wesley Clark said the only way Ukraine can prevail is through direct NATO and Western support.

Referring to Vladimir Putin, Russian state TV host Vladimir Solovyov asked: “Do I understand this correctly that right now why we’re acting with such a limited contingent that’s because of our Supreme (Commander) understands the likelihood of NATO jumping in and then we’ll need all the resources of our Army?”

State Duma member Andrey Gurulyov said: “We’re obligated to consider such a possibility.

“We can’t listen to every shoelace like (Wesley) Clark. It’s better not to react or respond to his statements. A dog barks and the wind carries the noise.”

Gurulyov added: “Nonetheless we have to consider every option up to a big, colossal war – and be ready for it.”

“Are we ready?”, asked TV host Solovyov.

“We’re ready”, Gurulyov said.

When asked how Russia should respond to the Western military challenges, Gurulyov said: “We should respond the same way. While there are reports we’re not keeping up, we’re now acting with the speed of a scalded cat. All modern means needed for waging war should be provided to our Armed Forces.

“We’re successfully working against the Donetsk group, but we still have no ways to go until the border with Poland. This will take a long time, it won’t be fast. For some reason, they think we’ll come running the moment Stoltenberg whistles he wants to negotiate. I don’t think that will happen.”

Referring to Ukraine, Gurulyov mocked the West’s delivery of weapons: “They’re trying to preserve a piece of anti-Russia, a piece of anti-Russia they can flood with weapons, which would mean a postponed war. We don’t need a postponed war.”

Former NATO commander-in-chief Wesley Clark called on NATO and Western allies to directly interfere in Russia’s war on Ukraine, insisting that is the only way to stop the Russian aggression.

Mr Clark told Radio Free Europe: “This is a fight that could be lost.

“It can only be won by Ukraine with much more support from the United States and other Western European allies.”

In a show of support for Ukraine, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, and Italian prime Minister Mario Draghi Thursday paid a visit to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and responded to his demand for more weapons, as his troops are struggling to hold the line in the eastern Donetsk region.

President Macron, who has been trying to negotiate a truce with Vladimir Putin on multiple phone talks, has signalled his clear intention of bringing about peace in the region.

In an exclusive interview with French TV Channel TF1 from Kyiv, he said: “I will not just go like this. And so, I do not exclude anything, but I will always do it in transparency with the Ukrainian President.”

He also tried to silence speculations of a degraded relationship with Volodymyr Zelensky caused by his repeated phone calls with Putin.

“I don’t think we can say that our relationship got cold. France has maintained the same position. I was transparent about my dialogue with Putin and sometimes did it at the request of President Zelensky,” he said.
