Russian President Vladimir Putin has been preparing for the war in Ukraine in plain sight, said Russian Chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov. He added that the Russian invasion of Ukraine could have been avoided had Western countries listened to what Vladimir Putin had been saying.
In an exclusive interview with India Today, Kasparov said, “Back in 2007 at the Munich Security Conference, he [Putin] had talked about spheres of influence. He wanted the world to be divided in the fashion of the past where big countries dictated to smaller countries how to behave.
“Putin has been preparing for the war in Ukraine in plain sight. He bought his Pacific fleet to the Black Sea. Russian forces have now surrounded Ukraine from all sides.“
The 58-year-old former World Chess Champion, however, said that what is happening in Ukraine now is a deviation from Russia’s plans.
“Russia failed to take over Kyiv in two or three days as planned. The heroic defence by Ukrainians has harmed Putin’s image as an invincible leader,” Kasparov said.
