According to Christine Lagarde, the head of the Kremlin wants to wreak havoc. In her opinion, the person who commits such atrocities is controlled by evil forces.
European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde said that Russian President Vladimir Putin attacked Ukraine to cause chaos and destroy as much of Europe as possible . Bloomberg writes about this.
According to Lagarde, she met with Putin and he is a “terrifying person.”
“Why would you do such things, invade a country, kill people, destroy the fabric of society and fail?” she said.
In her opinion, “evil forces” control Putin. However, Lagarde added that the head of the Kremlin received not at all what he expected. His actions rallied the Ukrainian people, Europeans and rejuvenated NATO.
The publication writes that, explaining the recent actions of the ECB, which on Thursday doubled its key interest rate to the highest level in more than a decade, Lagarde said that the institution is fighting inflation caused by the rapid recovery from the pandemic, as well as the energy crisis caused by Putin, who unreasonably decided to invade another country.
“This energy crisis is causing massive inflation, which we must defeat,” she said .
We also recall that Putin announced his readiness to negotiate with Ukraine and the United States. According to Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin, this became known from a telephone conversation between the Foreign Ministers of China and Russia.
