Politics Professor Anthony Glees, sat down on Jeremy Vine on 5 to discuss what Russian President Vladimir Putin might do next. Putin has amassed Russian troops along the Ukrainian border and tensions are rising between both European countries. Mr Glee warned that Putin would not stop at Ukraine, he will come for the ‘Baltic states next’ as Putin continues to break internal legal agreements with neighbouring European countries. Mr Glees also explained that Putin’s previous actions with MH17 have shown the world how dangerous his military can be.
Mr Glees said: “Putin’s gone so far now he can’t get back.
“Please don’t forget, he’s already interfering in Ukraine, they shot down flight MH17.
“The Russians, a mistake perhaps but it shows how dangerous all of this is.
“And he’s interfering not just in the internal affairs of Ukraine, he’s breaking the agreement.
Mr Glees added: “Breaking every single agreement and a man who breaks an agreement…”
Mr Vine said: “Professor, would you send our soldiers?”
Mr Glees said: “In the case of Ukraine it will break every other agreement, it will be the Baltic states next.
“Then Hungary, Poland and Czechoslavakia.”

Mr Glee failed to answer Mr Vine when he asked whether the UK should send over British troops to help Ukraine.
NATO members continue to scramble to offer support to Ukraine, England announced that they have deployed a small infantry training team to help Ukrainian armed forces and boost their defence systems against Russian military forces.
NATO has stationed around 4,000 troops in neighbouring European countries and the US has placed up to 8,500 troops on alert for possible deployment to Ukraine.

Mr Johnson added: “And I think it’s very important that people in Russia understand that this could be a new Chechnya, I’ve been to Ukraine several times.
“I know the people of that country a bit, and my judgement is that they will fight and really that is not the way the world should be going.
“And I hope that they understand that in the Kremlin, but it’s the job of the UK to make sure our friends and partners around the world particularly in Europe, also understand that we get ready a tough enough package of sanctions.”
