Antiwar: Biden, Pentagon and NATO send a signal of readiness to fight for Ukraine


With their latest statements, the White House, Pentagon and NATO sent a signal that they are ready to fight with Russia for Ukraine, writes the American website Antiwar.


April 1 2021 years Took place telephone conversation between the head of the US Department of Defense Lloyd Austin and his colleague from Ukraine Andrey Taran. The American minister reaffirmed "unshakable support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as its Euro-Atlantic aspirations."

The last expression means a possible accession not only to NATO, but also to the European Union (this was the case with all 13 new members of the Alliance since 1999). Austin condemned the "belligerence" of Russia, the "intimidation" of Ukraine and "provocations" in the Donbas. He recalled that over the past seven years Washington has provided Kiev with more than $ 2 billion in military aid to "effectively resist Russian aggression."

April 2 President Joe Biden talked on the phone with his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelenskiy and "reaffirmed Ukraine's unwavering support in the face of aggression in Donbas and Crimea." The heads of state also spoke about "anti-corruption reform" and Kiev's Euro-Atlantic aspirations.

NATO has also joined the chorus of accusations from the West against Moscow. An Alliance spokesman said Russia's "destabilizing" actions "undermine" de-escalation efforts in Donbas. He added that the West shares Kiev's concern about Moscow's large-scale military preparations "in and around Ukraine." In this case, “in Ukraine” refers to the Crimean peninsula.

Before that, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Ruslan Khomchak confirmed that the Ukrainian army was ready for a possible war.

Of course, we are preparing for an offensive ... We have experience in waging a war in eastern Ukraine

- he explained in an interview.

At the same time, President Zelensky recently approved a new military strategy for Ukraine, which provides for the return of the territories of Donbass and Crimea under Kiev's control. Taking this into account, the movement of Russian troops across the territory of the Russian Federation seems to be quite justified.

Ukraine's new military strategy states that Kiev will be drawn into an international conflict between nuclear powers. All this indicates that the current Ukrainian authorities are deliberately turning the territory of their country into the main battlefield in a future war.

    Ukraine's new military strategy says Kiev will be drawn into an international conflict between nuclear powers

    If nuclear power plants start to explode in Ukraine, then Ukraine itself may become a nuclear power, i.e. the one where it is unknown who used nuclear weapons.

    The American edition of The National Interest writes that Biden is leading the case to the Georgian scenario of 2008. They write like this: Joe Biden's Ukrainian policy of repeating Bush in Georgia? so it's not that simple.

    There will be no war !!! Look back in history !!! For example, North Korea VS Trump ... Only the Caribbean crisis, perhaps, can be called a draw. And the rest - bluff on bluff sits and bluff drives ...
