The President of the International Society of Criminology, Prof. Dr. Emilio Viano, has been giving interviews to several different international television chains since the Russia invasion of Ukraine started.
In this hors concours interview, given to @canalestrellatv, Prof. Dr. Viano, reviews the Military and Commercial reasons behind the Russian war against Ukraine.
Viano explains that the Russian clear intentions are in this war are: go regain the territory of Ukraine, which was part of the Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics, because:
1) Ukraine represents geographically a barrier between the Russian territory and the NATO’s and European Union Members territories;
2) Ukraine is moving itself to the Occident, this means the mentality, lifestyle and values of the people of Ukraine is getting close to Occidental’s;
3) Ukraine is a great source of profit for Russia. There is a gas duct that crosses the Ukraine’s territory and goes directly to Western Europe;
4) Ukraine is a functioning democracy. Putin does not like to have such an example of how life could be for Russians in a free country at Russia’s border.
Besides the Military and Commercial reasons there is also the personal vanity of Putin who craves to get into History as the President that brought back to Russia its Golden Era of its Empire.
Moreover, the Democratic Regime implemented by Ukraine is unacceptable to Russian leadership. Thus, this represents a threat to the Russian Government model, because gives power to the Democratic movement inside Russia.
Russia’s ambitious will not be limited to reconquer Ukraine, but to advance in the direction of the Baltic Countries.
The economic sanctions imposed by the USA, England and other countries of Europe against Russia are very weak and are only going to produce their effects in a long term. These sanctions are not efficient and are not going to get this war over. It is worth ti mention that the war is not only against Ukraine, but against Occidental values, mentality and society structure.
