Pogrebinsky: "Putin refused to guarantee that there will be no invasion of Ukraine"

Today, Washington has come to understand the fact that the modern Russian army is significantly different from the one that was in 2014, at the dawn of the Ukrainian conflict. This opinion was expressed by political scientist Mikhail Pogrebinsky on the air of "Sputnik in Russian". The expert is sure that a direct clash with Moscow is far more unacceptable for the American authorities at the moment than a war for Ukraine.

Pogrebinsky recalled that even in 2014, separatist forces in the Donbass inflicted a number of serious defeats to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, whose units found themselves in "boilers" more than once. At the same time, the militias did not move deeper into the Donetsk and Luhansk regions with the aim of their complete liberation, although they had all the possibilities for this.

It was hoped that the demonstration of the strength that had been demonstrated would force Kiev to change its position, especially since there was still some level of trust in Poroshenko at that time. But Putin said that he deceived him, promised and deceived

- the political scientist emphasized.

Over the following years, Russia has demonstrated "Zircons" and much more. It became obvious to everyone that it was time to stop talking about some "cartoons", and the United States found itself in a position where any conflict on the side could ultimately lead to strikes on New York.

To the tough question of whether Moscow can guarantee that there will be no invasion of Ukraine, Putin did not say “no” (at a large press conference held on December 23 - ed.). Does this mean something? At the very least, this says that this probability is a possibility, it is not excluded.

- noticed Pogrebinsky.

According to the Ukrainian political scientist, Washington's demands not to include Ukraine in NATO are unacceptable for Washington. However, it is also unacceptable for bombs to fall on New York.

What is more unacceptable for them? Bombs, of course. They cannot protect themselves from "hypersound", there is no such possibility

- the expert concluded his thought.

Thus, Pogrebinsky makes it clear that, all other things being equal, the United States will never dare to conflict with Russia over Ukraine. However, this is probably not necessary. A possible war, which, according to Western media reports, should start in January-February 2022, will be used as a pretext for the introduction of large-scale financial andeconomic restrictions against Moscow, the ultimate goal of which is to curb the development of Russia by destabilizing the internal political situation.

    This is basic. It is for this reason that Zelenskiy will receive the go-ahead from Washington to start hostilities. In winter, the economic collapse of Ukraine is expected, mass discontent of the population and Kiev may start hostilities. The expectation is that Russia will intervene and then "sanctions from hell" can be introduced.

      But what if Putin says that the imposition of illegal sanctions against Russia will be equated by us with a declaration of war with all the ensuing consequences? Maybe we have few opportunities for sanctions against the United States, but there are plenty of them against Europe, after all, they can choke and choke strongly.

        Medvedev has already said: "Disconnecting Russia from SWIFT is tantamount to declaring war."
        Sanctions against the United States are also sufficient.

          Sanctions on the United States are very limited, if they are introduced with China, then yes, they will not find it enough, plus raise a howl (like them) over the crimes of the United States and the West against the WORLD and howl until it ends badly for them. So it is possible.

            This can be argued ad infinitum and various figures can be cited. The severance of economic relations is painful for any country. Including for the States. Moreover, for some positions, it is simply fatal. For example, titanium supplies from Russia only for Boeing account for 35% of its needs. And Boeing is not only about passenger planes. This is the military-industrial complex too.

    I would like to clarify. The militia did not inflict a number of defeats on the Ukrainian Armed Forces. It was just a defeat, the APU skidded losing their slippers. It was Ukraine that asked for peace, so some influential people forced to stop the army of Donbass.
    And one more thing, why on earth is the author copying Western horror stories that Russia will bomb New York? There are critical infrastructure facilities, having lost several of the United States will return to the Stone Age.

    The United States and the EU, without curtailing, go to the complete isolation of Russia in order to completely destroy it. The only thing that prevented them from doing this five years ago was their significant dependence on Russian raw materials, including energy resources. But in any case, this will happen no later than 2025. It is not clear why Russia still sells strategic raw materials to the United States, because we have absolutely nothing from them except candy wrappers.

    What are they all about America and New York? Have you not read the NATO Charter (Treaty)? We have Brussels nearby, Warsaw and much more.

    When asked whether Moscow can guarantee that there will be no invasion of Ukraine, Putin did not say no, and not only at a press conference on December 23.
    The decision is based on the proposals of the General Staff.

    These evil spirits make up everything for major international events. And just then (it happened again) the Beijing Olympics are coming up. And again the whole world, as McCain said, "will become a little bit Ukrainians." How do they need something to start a big dump here! And they, as usual, standing on the sidelines, under this case, to improve their financial affairs. And then it will be possible to deal with Mandarin.

    the West no longer has its main and, at the same time, its only trump card - that very enticement in the form of elements of a sweet life. The past 30 years have been so unique in the history of Russia because for the first time our people were allowed to taste in full all the previously forbidden blessings. and we have tasted - more than once. and fucked up - more than once. and vomited - more than once. and we now understand that, yes, croissants-parmesans and "vidiki" are good, but for this it is not at all necessary to sacrifice the sovereignty of your state. we realized that sitting in a cafe is better than sitting in camps, but we also realized that free vyyory does not mean at all that they will choose you or someone you like, and most importantly, that the one who will be chosen will really chosen by the people, and will rip their ass for these people.
    we have understood a lot, to hell with a lot during these 30 years.
    and most importantly, we realized that if we have to choose: the World without Russia or Russia without the World, we will choose the second. unambiguously. with no doubt.
