Deputy Secretary of the Russian Security Council, Alexander Veneditkovhas warned of start of a “new Cold War” and has called on a West led by the United States, which it blames for the tensions, to resolve the situation by following the “example” of the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962.

Veneditkov alleges that it is necessary for the parties to take into account the experience of having “successfully” resolved that conflict, known in Russia as the Caribbean Crisis, and other “equally dangerous” episodes of the confrontation between Russia and the United States behind the Second World War.

“The events of 1962 are an example of how the two ‘superpowers’ can put aside the deep ideological differences that divide them in the name of joint constructive work for the benefit of all humanity,” the TASS agency collects, on the president’s statements. .

What happened in the Missile Crisis?

The crisis began when the United States discovered Soviet missile ramps in Cuba, on October 15, 1962and lasted until it was dismantled and moved out of America.

Historians regard her as one of the biggest crises of the Cold Warsince it was very close to the start of a nuclear war.

This is not the first time that the Kremlin has accused the West of start a sort of new Cold War not only with the measures imposed against the Russian economy, but also with the sanctions targeting oligarchs and personalities from the country for their support of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In fact, the Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, even said a few months ago that the attitude of the Western powers revealed “their true intentions” and highlighted “the beautiful slogans they displayed when the Cold War ended”.
