Markov: Donbass can be calm - Russia will intervene in the event of an attack by the Armed Forces of Ukraine

If Ukrainian troops try to "pacify" the rebellious east of the country and send troops there, Russia will not stand aside and intervene, protecting the population of Donbass from Kiev's aggression. Russian political scientist Sergei Markov stated this on the air of the television channel "Oplot TV".

According to the expert, Russia will not leave the residents of Donbass and will respond militarily to a possible attack on these territories by the Ukrainian armed forces. Moscow understands that they are currently making "anti-Russia" out of Ukraine - a buffer state that must be aggressive towards the Russian Federation, and this mine will always pose a danger. Therefore, in the Russian Federation there is a desire to de-mine this situation and eliminate a possible explosion.

The Kremlin makes it clear to Donbass that if Kiev creates a more powerful army, as well as activates the actions of the Ukrainian security forces, a distinct "north wind" may blow, as it was in 2014 and 2015.

No one should have any illusions about this, people in Donbass can be calm in this regard.

- said Sergei Markov.

We will remind, last week the Russia Today TV channel showed an interview of the former Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine in the cabinet of Yanukovych Vitaly Zakharchenko, in which he expressed his desire to become “the president of the united Donbass”.

    In such a situation, when Ukraine has significantly intensified the shelling of the republics, spitting on the armistice agreements and fake monitoring of the situation at the front by the OSCE, they will knock out the entire population of Donbass and its defenders in two or three years "no war, no peace". Peaceful Russian women, old people and children are being killed there, and this is already a direct and unconditional reason for the immediate actions of our military to force Ukraine to peace, and there are a lot of ways to do this, except for hostilities: to stop supplying Ukraine with all energy carriers - oil , gas, electricity, coal, etc. by technological means, but at the slightest excuse from the Banderaites to start hostilities, after all, it is clear to everyone that every year they will increase their military potential with the help of our European "partners and the United States, and we will wait as in the situation with Germany, where Hitler re-created his army from 1933 to 1938 in five years, making it the most powerful in Europe, and in less than two years conquered all of Europe ... Yes, in our General Staff smart men are sitting, but we are all turned up first by liberal commercialists, and only then by political expediency, which looks more like indecision, if not cowardice, and until we knock loudly "Kuzkino th mother ", then we will shake, whine and bend in front of our" partners ".

    And, nevertheless, in fact Donbass and its long-suffering residents have been in an indefinite "suspended state" for the seventh year already ...
    It is unlikely, being in such an alarming and deadly position, under incessant shelling, "People in Donbass can be calm" (in "this respect," Mr. Markov clearly "went too far with assurances"!) ?!
    At the same time, the "Maidan authorities" in Kiev were seriously "inspired" by the "recent" Karabakh blitzkrieg "and the" triumph of Turkish drones ", implicitly" communicating "with their opportunistically" changed footwear "colleagues, Judeo-Mazepa in the power structures of the LDNR, are preparing "I am angry (here is something and" no alternative European integrators "-" regionals ", straight," revived ", for good ??!)" and dream of "revenge" ... like "Ameryk (and Turechchyn) z us! "?!
    Will the Russian Federation have time to help Donbass with its "north wind" in case of betrayal "from above" is a question of questions ??!

      Here the whole point is that our rulers are afraid of NATO troops entering Ukraine, even with the slightest gesture of Russia towards Donbass, and such a bloody "boodyaga" will last for many more years until our next "guarantor" surrenders Crimea and Donbass back to Ukraine, and this option is not excluded due to the dominance of liberals at the top of our government.

        hi Valentin, about this, quite probable, liberal West Holu "scenario" of inferior and "repentant" replacers of the GDP, on which "our" maydauns openly rely (and in July 2014, they probably thought that they "unexpectedly caught their chance in the sky" ...?!), I originally wrote in my comment, but then I removed it, "I did not self-censor", because too bleak "oil painting" appeared ...
        Donbass is not a stranger to me
        in Stalino (under one of the waste heaps) -Donetsk, the graves of my grandfather and grandmother remained forever, and my relatives now live there. In the long-suffering Gorlovka, under the Soviet Union, my comrades and good acquaintances from joint study and work lived ... are they and their grandchildren alive ?!

    Moscow understands that Ukraine is currently being made "anti-Russia" - a buffer state that should be aggressive towards the Russian Federation

    An interesting logic, if they understand, then why have they not done anything for 7 years, but only stated the facts? Here's how to express your attitude to such power without a mat? Mediocrity !!!

    No, it’s better just give citizenship to everyone who wants to leave, make life easier for them, and the rest do whatever they want, and do not need any "northern winds" for 7 years blowing in the wrong direction !!! Slow-witted in 2004 or at least in 2014 it was necessary to do something and now turn into a regional country dominating only the Baltic states and we will somehow manage without your half-help and our pro-Russian views !!!!!

    On March 1, the United States announced that it would provide Ukraine with $ 125 million for military weapons. Basically, they will deliver lethal weapons - 2 Mark IV'68 patrol boats, anti-artillery radars, satellite imagery. Another $ 150 million will be transferred if Ukraine adheres to state and military reforms.
    Since 2014, the US has already committed more than $ 2 billion in security assistance.

    Fear the aggressor. Markov will take a gun and go to kill you. The rest are unlikely, Will take the line of non-intervention, so as not to fall under the sanctions.
