Putin ‘is not rational’, no one could have prevented war in Ukraine: ambassador

Canada’s Ambassador to Ukraine Larisa Galadza said Sunday that Russian President Vladimir Putin “is not rational” and that there was no one who could have stopped the leader from invading Ukraine.

“He didn’t believe the story. He wasn’t logical. He wasn’t rational. He’s not rational. So I don’t know how to prevent that,” she said on CBC Rosemary Barton Live, adding that Russia has faced sanctions from Canada since Ukraine annexed Crimea in 2014.

“I don’t think there was anyone who could stop Putin from doing what Putin did,” Galadza said.

Last week, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reopened the country’s embassy in Kyiv during a surprise visit to Ukraine. Galadza said things “definitely felt different” in the city.

Mikhail Kasyanov, who previously served as Russia’s prime minister under Putin, said Friday he believes the Russian president is “already beginning to realize that he’s losing this war.” He also told DW that Putin’s speech on Victory Day was “absolutely weak.”

Retired US Army Lieutenant General Keith Kellogg made a similar statement on Fox News Monday, saying he believes Putin “knows he’s not going to win this war and he’s trying to maybe find a way out of this.” and how he can do it. “

Meanwhile, a Ukrainian official recently said that Putin was “very ill” with cancer and other health problems. Ukraine’s Major General Kyrylo Budanov told Sky News on Saturday that the Russian president was in “very bad mental and physical condition and he was very ill”.

However, the Kremlin has consistently said that Putin is in good health.
