US General on the expected Russian invasion of Ukraine: It's not just about water for Crimea

Former commander of the US Armed Forces in Europe, General Ben Hodges, in an interview with TSN television channel, spoke about plans for Russian aggression against Ukraine. In his opinion, this is not only about providing the Crimean Peninsula with water.

The point is not only in the water supply to the Crimea - we can talk about the entire region of the Black Sea. Moscow dominates here, as it allows supporting the troops of Bashar al-Assad in Syria, as well as Marshal Khalifa Haftar in Libya. All this is tightly linked. Kremlin appetites can expand to the entire coast of Ukraine: Berdyansk, Mariupol, Odessa and beyond - to Transnistria

- said Ben Hodges.

The American general also noted that the Russian policy in Syria contributed to the emergence of thousands of refugees in Europe.

Moscow is turning these unfortunate people into its political weapon. What the Russian Federation is doing in Syria and Libya also puts pressure on European oil companies

- the retired military considers.

According to Hodges, all this is possible because Crimea is now under Russian control.

Earlier, the commander-in-chief of the environmental protection system in the Donbass, Sergei Nayev, did not confirm information about Russia's plans to invade Ukraine. The authorities of the Russian Federation have also repeatedly expressed their lack of any such plans for the Kremlin.

    Let him first remember Gaddafi's warning before the assassination of the Libyan NATO. It was Libya that held back refugees from Africa. And then they already fled from Iraq and Syria, when they began to cut off the head of the NATO feeding ups from the Islamists.

    When they bombed Yugoslavia,
    When the Albanian thugs were funded,
    When the Muslim Brotherhood was financed and armed in Egypt,
    When Libya was bombed by Iraq,
    When the technology of color revolutions was tested in Africa ....
    Americans carried democracy ....
    But they did not think about the number of victims, refugees .... compassionate generals, however, in the States.

    Turned everything upside down. Replaced, bastard, cause and effect. Generally foolish liar. Well done, our guys, our bright Varangians, who returned Crimea to the composition of Tresvetloy Rus. To be different there NATO members. Which is confirmed by the vile. It remains to tear Novo-Khazaria, as the Grand Duke once did, Rodomysl - Svyatoslav Igorevich.
    As long as the Jewish kingdom is at hand, they will not give us rest. Glory to Russia and our ancestors!
  6. The Americans themselves want to grab the Black Sea.
