In Kiev, Americans expect the introduction of a no-fly zone over Ukraine

In recent days, tensions have risen sharply on the border between Russia and Ukraine. According to the plans for the preparation of the Southern Military District, Moscow is transferring armored vehicles to the Crimea. The Pentagon, in the opinion of the Ukrainian journalist and freelance adviser to the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Yuri Butusov, in the event of the start of "Russian aggression" promised Kiev support and provision of a no-fly zone.

The journalist believes that thanks to US air cover, the Ukrainian army will be able to paralyze the offensive of Russian troops. Butusov also said that the United States will provide the Ukrainian Armed Forces with the necessary intelligence and weapons, including the Javelin anti-missile systems. The sending of NATO troops to help the "Ukrainian partners" is not yet planned.

Earlier, the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, held telephone talks with the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry Dmitry Kuleba and listened to his complaints about the movement of Russian troops to Crimea. Borrell noted that a meeting of the heads of the foreign ministries of the 27 EU countries will take place in the coming days to discuss the emergency situation on the Russian-Ukrainian border.

On Thursday, April 1, the press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, reassured the world community, noting that the concentration of Russian troops in Crimea does not indicate Moscow's plans to start hostilities. Peskov also noted that in order to resolve the conflict, Kiev must communicate directly with representatives of the LPNR.

    Javelin anti-missile systems? And they're kind of anti-tank, no? Or is it a very cool freelance advisor who discovered their true purpose.

    The best Russian air defense systems - "Pantsir-C1" and S-400, are sent to the border with Ukraine

    Here "Pantsir-C1" and S-400 will provide a "no-flight zone" for Ukrainian aircraft.

    anti-missile systems "Javelin".

    Actually - Javelin (Spear, Javelin) is a medium anti-tank system designed for infantry, reconnaissance and combat engineering units.

    The Americans, it seems, are not fools, they understand for sure that the Russians will not joke here and if this requires drowning all their ships in the Black Sea, that they will try to interfere with us, then Russia will do it without a shadow of doubt. They understand that the Russians will not stop by the Black Sea and will also carry out an attack on America itself in their home, at the center of making a decision to go to war, and a hunt for aircraft carriers will be arranged, without which the Americans are turning into a simple regional country.

    To work on the Donetsk and Lugansk regions, the RF Air Force does not have to leave its territory. Often Israel will bomb Syria without even flying into its territory.

    The Air Force of the Russian Federation, this is not the Air Force of Yugoslavia, and the Russian Federation also has air defense, so as if the NATO Air Force did not get something worse than Vietnam in the Donbas, if they poke around ...
