The US Senate announced the need for forceful unblocking of the port of Odessa

The US leadership denies the "deal of the century" with Ukraine over the exchange of weapons for food. However, the development of events shows the reverse process. Washington, with incredibly hasty and chaotic actions, betrays its plans to rob the remnants of Ukraine's national wealth. All international communications and governmental pro-American organizations are connected. Activity on this “front” (territorial proximity obliges) is shown by Turkey, thereby trying to smooth out the conflict caused by Ankara in NATO.

Washington's goal is known - the Ukrainian harvest and stocks of grain crops, other material values. Export by rail transportation is associated with a number of problems and difficulties, so only large-tonnage transportation by sea remains. But the only port left to Ukraine, Odessa, is at risk, so now the whole “concern” (obstacle) for the West is to unblock the infrastructure for export. And we are no longer talking about peace talks with the Russian Federation or a deal to exchange ship passes for the lifting of sanctions.

From the point of view of logistics, everything is ready - there are many foreign ships in the territorial waters of Ukraine, this is evidenced by the data of tracking companies involved in tracking the merchant fleet. not resolved political and military issues. The United States, apparently, is not going to wait any longer and has switched to direct blackmail of Russia, promising to provide Ukraine (a bill to allocate a huge amount has already been passed) missile weapons and long-range artillery systems, as well as air defense.

Officially, no such statement was made, but the message that appeared in The Washington Post speaks directly about this. As if confirming the threat, the head of the Republican minority in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, revealed the details of assistance to Ukraine, and casually mentioned that large-scale, including military assistance, would definitely help Kyiv "open" the seaport in Odessa.

Thus, for the first time, an official, an American politician and senator, speaks frankly about at least an attempt to resolve the issue by force.

The Ukrainians are trying to go on the offensive. And I think this weapon package is put together to give them what they need now, not only to win the ground war, but hopefully have some impact on getting the port back up again.

McConnell says bluntly in an interview with The New York Times.

In words, the senator allegedly cares about Africa, but it is obvious that we are talking about replenishing the supplies of the US itself and its main European allies. Noble rhetoric is designed to at least partially hide the predatory interests of the West.

    Russia also needs grain. We must compensate for the costs of the SVO, and we also need to feed the released people. Grain should not be allowed!!

    Is Uncle Sam really assigning Ukraine the role of a non-commissioned officer's widow who flogged herself: she demands to enter into a military confrontation with the Russian Federation in a new sector in order to give him ... her grain in exchange for ... weapons?

    I remember a very long time ago they wrote about some "container" systems that make it possible to turn a civilian ship into a combat one. It will not come to this and active hostilities on the water will begin.

      Well, why are some systems, these are "Clab-s" missile systems, they are built into a sea container and look no different from many thousands of the same containers, these systems have been produced in our country for a long time.

        I'm talking about Ukrainians. They can be given analogues and they will convert all civilian ships (which are stuck in the port of Odessa) into combat ones and arrange a "sea battle" to unblock the port of Odessa.

            It doesn't matter. The ships will be taken away (now this is becoming the norm), and the Americans will pinch off a little from the allocated billions to the owners of these ships and the issue will be closed. Crews will be taken out through Moldova.

    Ukrainian grain is one of the main trump cards in the hands of Russia. Letting it go is unacceptable.

    In exchange for nails (hello Matvienko!) send grain to China. To not go back empty.
    And nails are needed in any way for restoration.

    And with Chinese nails we will nail the coffin of the Nazis,
    Azovstal will be razed to the ground, and then on a clean field
    We will build a resort there.
    In spite of the sanctions, ...!

    And who will feed Ukraine next year until the new harvest of 2023?

    Don't give away the grain, bomb the port of Odessa!

    Here the problem is the following. If foreign ships are allowed to enter the port of Odessa to load grain, then in the holds of these ships there may be any weapon for the Zelensky regime. As a result, we will receive both the delivery of weapons on a large scale and the export of grain from Ukraine. We don't need either
