‘Father of Brexit’ says NATO provoked Putin

Nigel Farage, often referred to as the “Father of Brexit”, was asked by the BBC about his past controversial statements: In 2014 he named the Russian president as the politician he most admired. “I said I didn’t like him as a person, but I admired him as a political operator because he mastered running Russia,” he explained.

He was asked about a social media post from February 2022 in which he assessed the Russian invasion of Ukraine as “a consequence of the enlargement of the European Union and NATO”. Referring to this, Farage said he had been arguing since the 1990s that the “continuing eastward expansion” of NATO and the EU gave Putin an excuse to “We have provoked this war. However, it is Putin’s fault,” he added.
