Putin doesn’t want to take over Ukraine, he wants to destroy it

It has been almost 20 years since Leonid Nevslin (62) left Russia to find a new home in Israel. He publicly renounced his Russian citizenship earlier this year in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. He described Russian President Vladimir Putin, 69, as a psychopath and a “criminal”.

In Russia, Nevslin faced multiple charges of conspiracy to murder. He was sentenced to life imprisonment in absentia in 2008. Nevslin was the vice president of the Russian oil company Yukos before it broke up. He describes the investigation against him as a show trial by Putin. In an interview “The Times of Israel” He now talks in detail about the situation in Ukraine – and what he thinks Putin wants to achieve.
