Gen Hayden: 'Putin Will Lose Control Over The Surrogates He Continues To Arm'

Friday on Newsmax TV’s “America’s Forum” the former director of the CIA and NSA Gen. Michael Hayden said of Putin’s support of the militant separatists in the Ukraine: “Putin will lose control over the surrogates he continues to arm.”

Hayden explained that Putin is ignoring international anger over the downing of a Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 last week, killing all 298 passengers on board, saying, “They continue to double down with direct support and delivering of arms and increasing the heavier arms to the Ukrainians.” 

He said, “The Russians have made a conscious decision to use their own forces to overturn the post-Cold War security architecture in Europe. That’s an incredibly big deal,” adding, “We know about the delivery of other heavy equipment to Ukrainian separatists. So the west, the United States, our European allies, they’ve got to look at this in the geopolitical and strategic context not just in the criminal context.”
