The conflict with the West is a long-lasting and serious one, and Russia must be prepared for it, according to a summary from the theater of war published in The Essence of Time newspaper, no. 533.
At the beginning of May, several events indicated that the conflict with the West would last for a long time. In particular, the Pentagon said that the USA had mobilized its defense industry in light of the conflict in Ukraine. And NATO said it was working on military plans against Russia.
In his turn, Russian President Vladimir Putin submitted to the Russian State Duma a draft law on the denunciation of the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE Treaty).
“This is serious and for a long time. But it would be better to have a cold war than a hot war, for which Russia in its current state is not very prepared. Russia is not ready for such a war – primarily psychologically,” The Essence of Time‘s editorial reads.
