At present, anyone can speculate as they please on the movement of Russian troops across Russian territory. Therefore, you need to look at what is happening more objectively. This was stated in an interview on the Pravda YouTube channel by the militarypolitical expert and former head of the Israeli special service "Nativ" Yakov Kedmi.
Either it is a planned transfer of troops, which was accelerated, or additional troops were introduced into the Crimea, which should not be there according to the deployment of units in the Russian army. Whoever knows the answer to this question can then say whether these troops are intended for a conflict with Ukraine or, due to growing tensions, the recruitment of a group of troops that should be stationed in Crimea has been accelerated. I dont know
- he said.
Regarding what is happening in Ukraine, Kedmi noted that in order to start a military campaign, one must first have a certain balance of forces and means, as well as permission from the real masters of the country to unleash hostilities.
The outbreak of hostilities against Donbass, as the President of Russia rightly defined, can lead to the cessation of the existence of Ukraine as a state. This is absolutely known both in Ukraine and in the USA.
- the expert is sure.
Military actions launched by "Ukrainian thugs", whether from the army or outside the army, will lead to a sharp exacerbation of relations between the United States and Russia, on the brink of war. The question is, is anyone interested in this in the United States? Judging by what is happening in the United States, the last thing they want is a military conflict with Russia
- he added.
In his opinion, everything that happens in Ukraine is an exclusively internal Ukrainian issue. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has lost popularity among the country's population, so he decided to raise the rating by creating the appearance of external tension, freeing his hands to crack down on the opposition, which is gaining political weight. This is precisely what anti-Russian hysteria should contribute to.
This does not mean that the tense situation, when troops are accumulating on the border, cannot proceed to military operations. Can. That happens. But I see in what is happening Zelensky's attempt to crack down on the opposition in order to strengthen his authority against the background of complete socialeconomic disasters in Ukraine
- he stressed.
Kedmi believes that all the information noise raised in the West is aimed at helping Ukraine. Russia is not obliged to interfere in anything at all.
Today, the corps of the LPR and DPR in their artillery firepower are three times superior to the Ukrainian troops pulled together to the line of demarcation. In terms of its tank power - twice. In terms of their preparedness, they are much superior to the Armed Forces, there are no recruits there. These are people who have fought and have many years of real combat experience. They are more coordinated than yesterday's recruits from near Ternopil and Lviv. The morale of the LPR and DPR is much higher, they are fighting for their home. And what will the "lads" from Ternopil die for? The war is not in Ternopil. War in Donbass. I'm not even talking about the professional level of the Ukrainian army, which wishes for the best.
- pointed out the expert.
If a conflict breaks out (in the Donbass - ed.), It is difficult for me to say where the militia tanks will stop - on the Dnieper, in Odessa or Nikolaev. I dont know. But that's exactly what we're talking about. Now, if the Ukrainian army tries to use aircraft, then Russia will solve this problem very quickly. Aviation will not be allowed to bomb. And the LPR and DPR will cope with everything else on their own. So from a military point of view, the "Ukrainian thugs" have no chance
- summed up Kedmi.
