Fox News host Mark Levin warned Monday that Russian President Vladimir Putin will continue his apparent quest to destroy former Soviet states unless President Biden and the West take decisive and constructive action to support efforts to the Zelenskyy administration to defend Ukraine.
The ‘Life, Liberty & Levin’ host said Biden’s behavior was the exact opposite of that of his former boss, Ronald Reagan, who, along with British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, successfully engineered the collapse of Soviet Union.
“Reagan crushed the Soviet Union economically and in fact supplied an enormous amount of arms all over the world to the enemies of the Soviet Union, whether in Angola, in Africa, whether in the Middle East, whether whether in Afghanistan,” he said.
“Wherever the Soviets were, Reagan opposed them – and it’s funny that it didn’t create World War III.”

Levin predicted further aggressive actions worldwide by Putin if he is able to kill President Volodymyr Zelenskyy or take over the former Soviet republic.
“Why do Ukrainians have to see their cities destroyed? Why are we all sitting around and waiting for the Russians to come in and take out Kyiv and kill their president? Why that ? I have never seen anything like this in my life,” he said.
Levin said Zelenskyy urgently wanted the United States to supply him with MiG-29s or F-16s, despite the latter’s aging technology.
He said the Pentagon can easily supply some to Kyiv, and it can be done without committing to a “no-fly zone.”
“Why do people think that this cowardly Putin, who is hiding in a bunker, is going to use nuclear weapons? I don’t understand,” he added.
“If he were to use nukes, he doesn’t need us to provoke them. He can use nukes tomorrow. He can use whatever he wants. But he didn’t and he doesn’t. won’t — And neither of them. It’s that Lavrov, that foreign secretary with the crazy tooth.”
Levin suggested that Putin would not start a nuclear war despite his apparent threats of escalation because the Kremlin “doesn’t want to die” when the West is likely to respond.

“What if we lose Ukraine? We the free people of the world. What? He can go to Poland. He can go to other countries there. What are we going to do then? So he’s got his head high. So he brings in NATO. So Ukraine is critical to the American people. Ukraine is critical, period,” Levin added.
