Could the conflict in Ukraine lead to World War III?

Former US President Donald Trump believes that the current situation in Ukraine could be a prologue to World War III. Previously, Trump believes, he had a productive dialogue with Putin, but now there is no one to talk to Russia.

According to Roman Larionov, political consultant and CEO of the Center for Strategic Consulting, the current events are indeed in many ways reminiscent of the balancing of the world on the brink of a global conflict in the era of the Cold War.

At the same time, major global players are trying to avoid crossing the fine line between peace and a nuclear apocalypse.

Moscow and Washington have opened a direct line, as before in Syria, and Biden has consistently rejected calls for a no-fly zone

- said Larionov (quote from the Nezygar telegram channel).

Therefore, there are no clear prerequisites for the development of the Ukrainian conflict into the Third World War.

Trump's opinion on the possibility of a Third World War, Larionov considers it quite in line with political image of the ex-president of the United States. Trump, both during his presidency and after, assigns himself the role of an effective manager who can resolve any world crises.

Sociologist Maria Fil believes that Donald Trump's words indicate his desire to return to power, thus playing on the mood of the Americans. The country is developing economic crisis, gasoline and food prices are rising, and Trump is trying to try on the role of a "savior" able to solve the most difficult issues of both domestic and foreign policy.

Why not take advantage of the chthonic fear of nuclear war that has settled in American society since the Caribbean crisis, fueled by specific everyday religiosity and Hollywood products?

- asks Fil (the words of the expert are quoted by the Nezygar telegram channel).

Thus, the former US leader to some extent puts himself forward as an intermediary between Russia and the West. But, Phil recalled, Trump had not been very successful in such activities before.

    And what? Trump's agent could theoretically get the support of a curator, GDP. And in a good scenario, it’s straight to root for the next days of independence ....

    Germany appealed to Poland with a request to stop sending trains with Ukrainian refugees to the territory of Germany.

    Earlier, Moldova stated that it had reached the critical limit of the country's ability to accommodate refugees from Ukraine.

    It is reported that Israel will only accept Jewish refugees. The country's police are already trying to deport several Ukrainian women with children from Tel Aviv on the grounds that they are not Jews.

    It looks like a barge with those who do not have a Pole's card, passports of Russia, Hungary and Romania, as well as non-Jews decided to drown laughing

    No one on this earth wants to die from the third world war, neither the Rockefellers, nor the du Ponts, nor the Rothschilds, no matter how many trillions of dollars they have in their pockets, and they are well aware that no underground shelters-palaces-catacombs in Detroit will save them .and in the USA there is now another struggle for power - Biden is carrying one nonsense, and Trump is completely different, and at the same time they are dumping a sea of ​​​​dirt on each other ..... Russia is the greatest nuclear Power with a powerful army, and this is quite enough, so that there is no TMV, but America does not want to lose the title of hegemon of all the earth, and therefore will, by all means available to it, crush and break up our common country into small pieces, as it did with the USSR - patiently, but vilely and dirty, in which it was helped by our corrupt first persons of the state. Soon we will bring our neighbor to an adequate state, gaining a foothold on it for centuries, and in Europe they are also not fools, and
    they understand "who is who" for them the United States, and who rules in their "chicken coop".

    that is unlikely. Any scenario of a NATO clash with Russia almost immediately creates the threat of a preemptive strike from both sides. Here it is impossible to agree to "fight" first in the air. Both sides will be afraid of a preventive strike against strategic forces. If such a strike is successful, then surrender can be imposed on the enemy by pointing out nuclear strikes in case of an attempt to launch the remaining strategic nuclear forces that can be intercepted by missile defense. Therefore, Russia will have a huge need to launch all the missiles before it's too late. So is the USA.

    Regarding accusations from the United States against Russia that it is allegedly to blame for rising prices and inflation in the United States. Russia has almost no opportunity to deliver messages to the people of the United States. The last opportunity is the first persons of the state, who are listened to and quoted by the media. They somehow sluggishly wage an information war.

    The US blames Russia for US inflation. The operation in Ukraine has been going on for 20 days, so everything was in order with inflation in the United States before that? So the problems in the US economy started 20 days ago?

    Equal military-technical capabilities threaten unacceptable losses and make a full-scale war impossible.
    Therefore, the main battles take place in the financial and economic sphere and the stakes in this war are as high as possible - if the Russian Federation survives, the United States will lose the status of a world dictator, and if they prevail, the Russian Federation will cease to exist.
    Therefore, the United States mobilized all available resources, and whoever wins this war, China will win.

    I won't talk about Trump. He plays his game. About whether or not it will grow into the Third. I'm not an expert, so just my opinion. While the West and the United States are losing energy resources... and many of life's blessings are still making noise, but they have not reached the boiling point. But only we can allow them to reach this point. Or NOT allow. And not to allow it means to smash the maniac students to the fullest. Or maybe even more than "break". And then Yalta is possible again.

    There will be no 3rd world. Especially after this conflict with Ukraine. America has bitten its tongue. And then as soon as not as in Russia. And these European henchmen .... It’s not worth writing about them at all. All of Europe (US consumables) looks in the ass of the Americans and is afraid not only of Russians, but also of themselves. And it turns out that there are 3 strong powers on Earth: America, Russia, China. America with China in offices. But if (it seems that this is going to) China and Russia unite, then America no longer counts. She will no longer be needed in FIG with her alliance, nat (specially distorted the names).
    About mercenaries ..... They are used to fighting with countries (third world). And here on you ....... the most powerful power.

    World War II, World War III... it's just terminology.
    The beginning of the second is considered to be 1939. While other countries and continents were divided by Europeans and their allies, everything suited everyone and it didn’t matter that there was already Spain, Finland, Mongolia, it didn’t matter that the Japanese had been sitting in China and Korea for a long time. They don't care about any Chinese, Finns, and other natives. When it turned out that even arrogant Russians could divide the planet, and the worst thing is that they themselves were going to share it, sirs, dons, herrs and others did not like it very much. For them, it's a watershed, a red line, whatever you want to call it.
    The Third World War has been going on in Afghanistan, Irka, Syria, and Africa for a long time. Karabakh, Yugoslavia, Chechnya and others are just episodes. Only the intensity of the conflict changes.
    The question of terminology, what date to consider the beginning of the war can be postponed until later, this will be dealt with after it is over. If by that time there will be living people who can read and write.
