Italy's former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi provides shortly before the parliamentary elections with a Statement about Vladimir Putin cause a stir. The 85-year-old claims in a TV interview that the head of the Kremlin is Invasion of Ukraine urged been. "Putin was urged by the Russian people, by one party, by his ministers to come up with this special operation," Berlusconi said on Rai.
Berlusconi is a friend of the Russian president and was reluctant to condemn the invasion after the war broke out. Now he says: "Putin has slipped into a really difficult and dramatic situation." He uses this term deliberately because representatives of the two self-proclaimed republics in Donbass asked Putin to intervene in February. These would have persuaded Putin with the claim that Ukraine is attacking the areas more and more violently.
Furthermore, the party leader of Forza Italia, who, as a smaller partner in a right-wing coalition, has the best chance of winning the elections on Sunday, says that Putin has the government in Kyiv by Volodymyr Zelenskyj "with a government of decent people".
