The US offered the only way to "contain Russia" in Ukraine


Many Western and Ukrainian experts believe that the recent maneuvers by Russian troops on the border with Ukraine were preparations for an invasion. In this regard, ways are being considered to "contain" Russia and prevent a possible "aggression". One of the most effective of them is described in the material of the American edition of the Atlantic Council.


Transfer of military equipment Russia to the borders with Ukraine attracted the attention of the world community. Moscow's actions suggest that Putin plans to maintain pressure on Kiev and own the initiative, so Ukraine and the West must respond appropriately.

The Western world must recognize the urgent need to strengthen Ukraine militarily

- experts say.

Thus, the "Western partners" must provide the Ukrainians with weapons to defend against a possible Russian offensive, which threatens Ukraine from the north, south and east. Since a large number of Russian troops are concentrated near the Ukrainian border, urgent action must be taken, which would be impossible without Western allies. The only way to contain Russia, according to the publication, is to arm Ukraine.

Kiev has already made it clear what it would be most desirable to receive from Western countries. First of all, these are means of protection against ships, tanks and snipers, as well as air defense systems capable of suppressing possible attacks from the Russian Federation.

Strengthening Ukraine's defenses is the best way to contain Russia

- believes the Atlantic Council, speaking of this as a strategic priority of the Western world.

    Oo ... "recognize the urgent need"?

    Yes, that would be cooler than declaring "deep concern".))

    And the Ukrainians, in general, rolled their lips:

    Kiev has already made it clear what it would be most desirable to receive from Western countries. First of all, these are means of protection against ships, tanks and snipers, as well as air defense systems capable of suppressing possible attacks from the Russian Federation.

    Naive.)

    Firstly: what do the Americans have in general that would be better than the Russian one, and at the same time, it would not be a shame to hand these "holes-handed" people?)

    And secondly: in 23 years the Ukrainians managed to "profuse" the most powerful army (at that time) in Europe, which they inherited from the USSR.

    Everything was sold (at what, for a song), and then - gobbled up, drunk and popped out.

    With "help from the west," exactly the same will be done.
    Ukraine is a country of crooks, prostitutes and grabbers.

    It is useless to make them in wars.

    Unlike Russia, they do not hesitate to saturate Ukraine with modern weapons, while the Kremlin is pursuing a treacherous policy of non-intervention, supplying only humanitarian aid.

    It will be interesting to see how the EU, NATO and the United States will do this. And even (hypothetically) if this is done, then how quickly will the skakuas sell it? Seriously, the Ukrainians simply do not have a technical base to maintain Western technology just in working order. Money in the end. They cannot contain their own Soviet-style equipment, let alone the western one. It is impossible to repair a charming technique with a crowbar and obscenities.

    Hungry people will not resist Russia. Ukraine must first be fed, and for this, if an average of $ 2000 per person per year is provided, the West must fork out $ 46 million X $ 2000 = $ 92 billion a year. And this is the most modest. Otherwise, the people will not fight - there is nothing to defend except the capital of the oligarchs in Ukraine! Land, and that is already being sold to foreigners. Does the West have that kind of money for Ukraine?

    Provide a weapon, do not provide a weapon, there will be only one effect, the Ukrainian ensign will sell everything to the enemy. With such warriors, no enemies are needed, and there will not be enough weapons.
    Then why such screams?
    - Ukrainian arimya is the strongest in Europp))))

    We are all giggles, yes hakhanks, but in reality, the Ukrainian army, anyway, is rearming and strengthening, and motivated "horses" have appeared for almost two generations all over Ukraine, and in Galicia and more, ready to "cut the Muscovite" .. ..Remember about Hitler, which I have already written about here many times, who, after the defeat of the Weimar Republic in 1933, in 5 years, from scratch, recreated the previously banned army and navy,
    making it the most powerful in Europe, if not in the world, but we are all waiting for something, looking back at the "collective West", at the head of the United States - "whatever happens," and in the Donbass, Russian people continue to die.

        And why should she, this industry, if it will be armed by all of Europe with the Yankees at the head in order to end Russia, and the Ukrainian people will be cannon fodder.

    The US offered the only way to "contain Russia" in Ukraine

    - Generally, it's kind of strange ... - You read many comments and you never cease to be sadly surprised ... - Many here very much "scold the times of the USSR" ... - But when it comes to the armed forces, then. ..that ... then all as one, all as one for some reason believe that today's Russian soldier, in professionalism, in devotion to his fatherland, in cohesion and in fighting spirit, corresponds precisely to a soldier of the Soviet period ... ???
    - Even a soldier of the period of the war in Afghanistan differs significantly from a soldier of the period of the Chechen wars ... - Now, if they sent soldiers of "Soviet training" to Chechnya ... "of the Afghan period" (and not of the "Russian period") ... - so That army would really quickly put things in order without such terrible losses ... - But soldiers of the "Russian period" were sent to Chechnya and ... and ... and what a nightmare of losses all this resulted in ... - But after all. .. everywhere there were young people (both there and there) ... - And what a huge difference ... - Of course ... - it's somewhat naive to assume everything ... and compare ... - But still ...
    - And today's Russian army ... - What is the quality of today's Russian army ???
    - For some reason, everyone is inclined to talk about the Ukrainian army; what a "bad" it is ... - But about the Russian army, if they say, then only the following: "In two days we will be in Kiev !!!" ... - Where such confidence ???
    - Once upon a time, the Minister of Defense of Russia P.S. Grachev ... - also declared that he would take Chechnya ... - that's the only way ... - And then everything turned into ...
    - So today everyone repeats about the same thing ...

    In any case, the reluctance to radically and quickly solve the banderostan problem will increase the costs for Russia every day ... a critical price, and regardless of whether Putin will free Ukraine or not ... The losses are already enormous ... Zurabov, Chernomyrdin - for this it is time for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to clean the anus ...
