According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Ukraine was created by the first leader of the USSR, Vladimir Lenin.

He stated this during a press conference on Thursday.

“We try not to remember how Ukraine developed. Who created it? Lenin Vladimir Ilyich! When I created the Soviet Union, ”he said.

Putin also commented on the expansion of NATO to the east and said that further movement of NATO to the east is unacceptable for the Russian Federation, since this entails the establishment of the alliance’s armaments near the Russian borders.

“Not a single inch to the east, they told us in the 90s, but so what? Cheated. They just cheated insolently. (There were) 5 waves of NATO enlargement! … This is what we are talking about … They came to us and said: “No, now Ukraine will join NATO” … Or they will be on a bilateral basis … And you demand some guarantees from me. You must give us guarantees, you (the West)! ”- said the Russian president.
