Putin considers Western sanctions a "declaration of war" and his forces resume a large-scale offensive in Ukraine

Putin considers Western sanctions a "declaration of war" and his forces resume a large-scale offensive in Ukraine  Russian President Vladimir Putin considered the sanctions imposed on his country a "declaration of war", coinciding with the announcement of his forces launching a massive attack in Ukraine. The US Secretary of State visited the Polish-Ukrainian border and met there with the Ukrainian Foreign Minister and Polish officials.  Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Saturday that the sanctions imposed on his country amounted to a "declaration of war", but he ruled out any plans to impose martial law or a state of emergency in his country.  In a statement during his visit to a pilot training center of the Russian airline "Aerovolt", Putin added that his country's forces are about to finish destroying the military infrastructure in Ukraine.  He explained that they aim to bring Ukraine into a neutral situation and to disarm it, stressing that Kyiv should be neutral in order not to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization "NATO".  He stated that Ukraine's accession to NATO would lead to a war between Russia and the alliance as a whole. He stressed that the Russian military operation will not be limited to Donbass only, attributing the reason to the continued acquisition of arms by Ukrainian forces.  "So the Russian army resorted to another way, which is the destruction of the military infrastructure of Ukraine in the first stage," he explained.  He added that the Russian forces are on the verge of completing the destruction of the military infrastructure in Ukraine, indicating that the Russian army is continuing its military operation as planned.  In this context, Putin said, "The imposition of a no-fly zone over Ukraine constitutes participation in hostilities against us," adding that Moscow "has put the nuclear deterrent forces on alert after London's statements about the possibility of NATO intervention in Ukraine."  He pointed out that "the sanctions imposed on us are like declaring war on Russia," but he ruled out any plans to impose martial law or a state of emergency in his country.
