American expert suggested a real way out of the crisis in Ukraine

The collective ideological position of the Western anti-Russian coalition is famous for its solidity, at least until it is voiced by experts and politiciansacting as part of the system. However, as soon as a certain person retires and leaves the corporate box, immediately, almost instantly, individual thinking and an independent point of view return to him. Approximately the same transformation occurred with the former American military and expert David Pine, who, in his article for The National Interest, proposed real steps to overcome the crisis in Ukraine.

Pine called a set of scenarios a “plan” because several serious steps are envisaged at once, which cannot be accommodated at once in one action. In total, the former military man suggests up to 15 points, the consistent implementation of which will lead to peace and the end of the conflict around Ukraine.

At the very beginning, according to the expert, it is necessary to make it clear to Russia that Ukraine is ready and committed to peace. To this end, Kyiv could recognize the neutral status of its state and renounce claims to Crimea, recognizing it as Russian. Technically, this should be formalized not in words, but with changes in the constitution of the Ukrainian state. At the same time, the UN and members of the Security Council are obliged to guarantee its independence and sovereignty. Just at this stage, it is possible to recognize the Crimean peninsula as belonging to Russia with the abandonment of attempts to return it by any action.

Next comes a series of actions related to the Donbass. Not later than in September of this year, it is necessary to hold a referendum on the independence of the region. It must be held under the auspices of the UN and the OSCE so that its results are recognized by the world community.

Further, Kyiv was asked to abandon NATO exercises, as well as any deployment of alliance forces. At the same time, Moscow, as a response, must definitely support Ukraine on the path to joining the European Union, which should also help financially this state during the transition period. Of course, for these steps to become a reality, Moscow and Kyiv need to restore diplomatic relations, Pine believes.

The goodwill gestures of Russia and Ukraine should be to ban the parties from demanding reparations, anti-Russian sanctions should be lifted, and trade relations between the West and the Russian Federation should be restored.

In general, Pine's plan looks very pragmatic, deliberate and sober, but absolutely unrealizable for well-known reasons in the current conditions.

    No, she died like that, this Bandera louse - the outskirts must be destroyed as a state, they tried it and that's enough, otherwise history will repeat itself in 5 years, and we have already seen guarantees from the UN and Western partners of the Kremlin (Minsk-2 was also guaranteed by the UN)

    This plan is no longer realistic - Russia has resolved the issues of Crimea and Donbass unilaterally, we have no need to recognize Crimea as Russian either from Ukraine or from Western countries ....

    For some reason, "Experd" does not say anything about the first important step towards peace in Ukraine, the cessation of Western military assistance. As long as it continues, there will be no end to the war (

      The most important step is one - to kill more guys with a bandera on their backs. The second is also important - to finish off those who were not immediately overwhelmed. And then the disco.

    The plan looks unrealizable for the reason that Russia is offered to supply cheap resources to the West again, to withdraw money from the country, and in exchange promises are given "in words". Constitutions are easily rewritten, and treaties are easily violated and not enforced. There is no trust in the West from the word at all.

    There is only one guarantee that Russia can agree to. Complete demilitarization of Ukraine and deployment of Russian bases on the territory of Ukraine. Especially in the West. Then something can be discussed.

    American expert suggested a real way out of the crisis in Ukraine

    - Ha! - Personally, I'm here ... here ... here somehow the other day I already laid out in my comment some concerns about what might "happen" in the topic:

    Named the purpose of the arrival in Kyiv of four European leaders at once

    And here are some excerpts from there:

    WCO ceases its activities; the territory of the LPR and LPR has been liberated and is recognized as sovereign republics (the territories of which the Armed Forces of Ukraine "swear" to no longer shell - otherwise Ukraine will be "branded with shame" and "public censure" will be issued to it); Crimea will be "recognized" as part of the Russian Federation; Kherson region receives the rights of a "federal formation" within Ukraine; on the territory of Ukraine, the opening of Russian schools will be allowed, and "whoever wants" - that "can send their children to these schools"; Ukraine itself, as a "subject-state", undertakes to no longer use nationalist-specific advertising (to limit public nationalist processions and public Bandera greetings and slogans) .....

    - And for some reason, this Pine - did not take all the excerpts from this "thesis" of mine - but only allegorically outlined some of the "moments" from it! - It can be seen "modest" he is a little man!

    THE ABSOLUTELY FIRST STEP, NATO must get their stinking asses off the 1997 borders! ALL non-countries east of these borders MUST be excluded from NATO! ONLY this can bring peace to Europe and nothing else! Without this, peace in Europe is EXCLUDED in principle!

    At the same time, Moscow, as a response, must definitely support Ukraine on the path to joining the European Union.

    What is he smoking there? The EU and NATO are one and the same. Why should Russia support Ukraine's entry into the Russophobic Union?

    Uncle Petya, are you? In Europe, Americans also talk about relations between Russia and the former Ukraine as relations, for example, between Britain and France. They didn't understand anything. This is not a trade war. This is different.

    Experts and all sorts of hacks are not responsible for the bazaar, but officials are obliged to answer.
    Official representatives of the EU, NATO, the USA, Britain openly say that the Russian Federation is an enemy, that everything should be decided on the battlefield, that it is necessary to prepare for war with the Russian Federation, etc., etc.
    Such statements by Western officials are not a reason for launching a preventive strike with all available forces and means, or should we wait until they are ready?

    How naive, or stupid, or a traitor do you have to be to believe in the UN and the OSCE (which "revealed" itself so in the Donbass), neutral Ukraine or the "good" intentions of the EU or the USA?!

    The goodwill gestures of Russia and Ukraine should be to ban the parties from demanding reparations, anti-Russian sanctions should be lifted, and trade relations between the West and the Russian Federation should be restored.

    as for "trade relations", they continue to do so, including with enemies ...

    the lip of the Americans is not a fool, in fact, Russia only receives Crimea, which is obvious to everyone and so ours, and empty promises like NATO’s non-proliferation to the east of compliance with the DMSD, OSCE supervision, which does not hesitate to work impudently for dill ..... and all in the same spirit . only a naive little man can believe the Americans ... our answer to Chamberlain is no, the outskirts are part of Russia, and the fascist regime must be destroyed, and the border pushed back to Uzhgorod

    Breaking Ukraine is a dream. This is reminiscent of one person who, after three glasses of vodka, says that he has a dream - to stop drinking. They tell him - so come on! I can't quit. If I stop drinking, then there will be no dream.
