"Ukraine itself is eager to fight the Russians": Romanian expert on the crisis between Moscow and Kiev

The Romanian press continues to discuss the geopolitical crisis around Ukraine, as well as how it could affect Bucharest, if it comes to the implementation of military scenarios. The local media actively publish forecasts of officials, political scientists and experts in the military field.

In particular, the Gândul portal cites the opinion of the director of the Romanian Diplomatic Institute, Iulian Fota, who indicated that the worst scenario for Romania would be the beginning of a major military confrontation between Russia and Ukraine.

Mr. Fota believes that it will not come to a military conflict between the United States and Russia, because Moscow is not ready to pay the price that such a conflict promises to it. The expert also believes that "the Russians are convinced that against the backdrop of the decline of the West, they have the right to veto European security issues."

According to the political scientist, America will not conflict with Russia. In Geneva, Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin agreed that even the threat of a nuclear war should not slip between countries. And in order to prevent this, it is necessary to negate the risk of ordinary conflict.

The worst scenario for us [Romania], because we are very close, is a major military confrontation between Russia and Ukraine. The latter herself rushes into a fight with the Russians, having for this the support of the whole people, as well as preparing soldiers and machinery to the required level. Such a turn will obviously trigger a crisis in Eastern Europe, which will lead to large losses, destruction and costs for both Ukrainians and Russians.

- said Julian Fota on the air of the B1 TV channel.

The expert did not leave the anti-Russian component either.

And the Western world has done everything right so far. Biden clearly told Putin: "I will not allow anyone to impose conditions on me!" So, if we, the West, make a decision (on Ukraine's joining NATO), then the Ukrainians will join ... This is a fundamental point. After all, the discussion is not about Ukraine, but about relations between Russia and the West. If we again take the concept of spheres of influence as a basis, it means that in the future it will be possible to sell from Ukrainians to Moldovans, and then Romanians are not far away.

- Mr. Fota deduced the pattern.

According to him, from communication with Russians at all levels, he realized that the Russian geopolitical horizon is not limited to Ukraine alone. The Russian Federation feels its own strength, and believes that the West is in decline, and, therefore, Moscow has a decisive vote.

It is noteworthy that a number of Romanian media outlets indicate that the current deployment of the Russian armed forces is much more worrisome than the maneuvers that took place in the spring, when they also predicted "an imminent Russian invasion of Ukraine."

    The West wants to test the Russian Federation, how it will behave in the conflict with Ukraine, as it once was the test of the war between the USSR and Finland. And at the same time, he hopes to halve the ammunition stock of the RF Armed Forces. Well, and only then, on June 22, 2022, it is worthwhile to attack the Russian Federation along the entire western front, from the Baltic to the Black Sea. It is planned first to bombard with nuclear charges, and then to attack by manpower. For this, a motorized fist is now being formed on the western borders of the Russian Federation.

    Shoigu stressed that in November, as part of the US strategic forces' Global Thunder exercise, ten US strategic bombers were practicing the scenario of delivering nuclear strikes against Russia simultaneously from the western and eastern directions.

      And how will the nuclear weapons be delivered? There are only free-fall tactical nuclear bombs in Europe. To apply them massively, you need a "star air raid", guess from the first time what will happen when hundreds of flying planes will be visible on the radars, but just satellite reconnaissance will detect the accumulation of planes on the launch lanes. Well, about the motorized fist, this is complete nonsense. These Western gays have long ceased to have full-fledged units, not to mention the army. Well, except that the Baltic gays.

        In 1905, they also promised to shower the Japanese with hats.
        And now the British Minister of Defense is driving a tank along the Russian borders. Even Hitler did not allow himself this before the war.

          And now somebody says that we are going to throw hats on someone? In my opinion, everything is clear "This World will not exist without Russia." Hitler had more brains than this stupid chicken who looks up a topographic map up and down.

      No need for loud words.
      Take on our leadership. No more, but no less. In the next, I must say, once. And each time you have to make a choice between war and shame, between the money and the offspring of a number of people in the West and state interests. Which choice? Yes, everyone sees what. The further, the less and less room for throwing when choosing, each time the rates grow. Alas, rose-colored glasses are inappropriate in such a situation.

    What is the desire for the Americans and the British to die for this Ukraine?
    Can't understand?
    Are these newly minted, naked Mamluks rushing into battle?
    Well, then it's time, they themselves are torn ..

      Apparently the States want to organize a small Afghanistan in Ukraine, or at least South Korea. But most likely it will turn out to be Vietnam. From the Afghan theme, there can be only passengers on the landing gear of American aircraft.

      Two topical questions.
      1. Will it be possible to snatch Moldavia and Bessarabia?
      2. They made it possible to deliver an anti-missile defense system (with the possibility of using strike missiles). now they clearly understand what will come from us. And they are very worried: what will arrive? Just Caliber (or what else) or with a "special" warhead?

    Biden clearly told Putin: "I will not allow anyone to impose conditions on me!"

    And Putin, after all, puts it. So what?

    The latter herself breaks into a fight with the Russians,

    Not torn, but run up. There will be no fight. There will be a remote beating. And Russia will not occupy a large territory at once. Donetsk and Lugansk regions entirely. And that's it, at the first stage. And also the defeat of management, equipment, warehouses, weapons production remotely.

    Well, well, Romanian expert, it's already ridiculous.
    Ukraine is rushing into battle with Russia! For already 8 years it has already been torn. Only at the moment it is completely under the control of our Aerospace Forces from three directions. We do not even need to enter the territory of the Skakuas in order to smash their Armed Forces into small dust. This is understood by the strategists NATO, they understand in the USA. But now a Romanian "expert" appears and it becomes clear that he is the smartest, and strategists are fools and in vain eat goat rations and get paid.

      It is not that simple. The army of Ukraine is quite large and is able to occupy several cities and towns in order to hide behind civilians. They will have to be knocked out without videoconferencing (at least for mass use), and this is a loss. I don't want to.

        In general, I'm scared. We lost ... Outright ... After all, these antons (darned) have achieved that we (in the past, one people) are ready to kill each other, and they will be able to watch this from the side, giggling quietly and rubbing their hands. Once they could not even dream of such a thing, now it is a reality. Divide and Conquer is always relevant.

        Well, it won't come to that. Samit took place, the hysteria in the media will gradually subside. Until spring, until everything dries up, there will be no sharp gestures. In winter, in the northern hemisphere, sane strategists do not wage war. It's too expensive. Even for us. will. Zelensky and Co. still need to survive the winter. In my opinion, the main events will begin in 2-3 years.
