American politician named winners and losers in the conflict in Ukraine


A new cold war has begun, the iron curtain has been lowered. Is it only Russia and its leader Vladimir Putin who are guilty of these processes? There has never been a good war or a bad peace. After seven months of the active phase of the conflict in Ukraine, it is possible to sum up the preliminary results by answering the question of whether there are winners and losers. Patrick Buchanan, a well-known American politician and former adviser to the US presidents and founder of The American Conservative magazine, is trying to do this.


As the expert writes, on the one hand, the West is sure that, following the results of the SVO, Russia is supposedly bled dry, has lost a lot of equipment and soldiers, and its progress through the territory of the neighboring state slowed down. Then, it turns out that Ukraine won? Of course not.

Indeed, even a superficial analysis shows that in any clash with the Russian Federation, Kyiv loses territories and cannot return them back. So it was in 2014 and in the current, 2022. At the moment, more than 20% of the territory has already been lost. Moreover, Ukraine seems to have even abandoned the idea of ​​militarily returning all the lost lands, fighting only to hold or attack small settlements. Did Ukraine win? In addition to the little meaning "admiration of the whole world", Kyiv did not receive anything significant in terms of improving its position.

But, if the Russian Federation did not win, like Ukraine, then who is the winner in this conflict? Maybe the West? But the EU is mired in crisis due to exorbitant gas prices, and America is suffering from the depletion of its national energy reserves, weapons, is in the process of falling into a recession, reaping the benefits of helping the regime of President Vladimir Zelensky in the form of falling incomes of its own population.

On top of that, the United States got an open conflict with China, the contradictions went too far, as did Moscow's friendship with Beijing. As a result, the hatred of a large part of the world towards the Americans only grew. Can it be profitable or count as a win?

Perhaps we Americans should spend as much time and energy putting an end to this war as we spend trying to defeat and humiliate Russia. Continued conflict will not bring us peace and prosperity

Buchanan concluded.

    All this is nonsense.
    whoever is in power wins.
    Someone is cashing in on the rise in prices for resources and supplies of the military-industrial complex, and the population of these Americas, Europe, Ukraine and the CIS is similarly tightening their belts

    The undisputed beneficiary in this war is China. Having waited for the Slavs to destroy each other sufficiently, he has every chance of getting both Russia and Ukraine.

      "Uncle Sam" wouldn't say it better. The truth is in their own interests.
      Meaning to draw Russia in Ukraine into a war with NATO and:
      - avert the danger of using Russia's strategic nuclear weapons on its territory when it is defeated by proxy
      - weaken the blood of Russia and completely subjugate (enslave) the European members of NATO, tk. The United States is having problems returning production from China, while Europe has kept them on its own territory and has a decisive competitive advantage in the new world
      - deprive China of potential allies in the face of Russia and Europe
      - with minimal forces and without risk, if necessary, finish off Russia and take possession of its resources
      - to deprive Europe of the opportunity to claim a fair share of Russia's resources
      - remove possible obstacles before the fight with China
      - earn on the supply of weapons to all
      - earn on the restoration of Europe
      - etc. etc.
      If, at the same time, he still manages to destroy (including with your help) relations between Russia and China (which introduce unpleasant uncertainty into his plans), he will be very grateful to you, but he will not remember this when "finishing off" Russia.
      Only by clearing the whole field will he take care of China, left all alone

      Or maybe the people of Russia and Ukraine are ready to return to socialism, which is now flourishing in China?

        Pay less attention to names. China doesn't even smell of socialism. There is refined fascism in the form in which Mussolini described it in his book.

    The plans of the Anglo-Saxons have not yet been realized. Even the vector of their first active stage of drawing Russia into a war with NATO, they try not to disclose, if possible - probably not yet fully prepared.
    Their ultimate goal is the complete subjugation of the European part of the world. However, first, it is planned to destroy Russia by the hands of the countries of Europe and Japan.
    So: either the expert was in a hurry and does not understand (which is unlikely), or he adds "fog" to the general smokescreen of the Anglo-Saxons.
    Russia has very little time left to force the US to retreat with the nuclear threat. When the war with NATO begins, it will be useless - the war itself will dictate the necessary actions to everyone. The United States will not participate in it, and will take a position on finishing off Russia

      Where will they go from the submarine? If NATO intervenes, then the States will not be left without "Sarmatians". They will receive their gift.

        Our selflessness does not go beyond our heads. God grant that it spread to our actions. Projecting it onto the leadership of the country and Putin is idealism.
        From the point of view of cold calculation, as we geopolitical retreat, since (conditionally) since 1997, the space of possibilities of our future has been continuously shrinking.
        Compare the possibilities of the USSR with the socialist system in half the world, the Warsaw Pact and the Comecon and our current situation as a lonely patient "at death". For the sake of WHAT prospect of becoming a fiend for the whole world, plunging it into the Middle Ages?
        I doubt that our leaders, being "at the edge" will think about revenge.
        I think that it is the attractive prospect of a future life for us and our children that is the only motive that can force the leadership and us to take risks and make sacrifices. This resource will run out much sooner than our ability to use nuclear weapons. We also need it ONLY in order to force the States to retreat to their original positions in everything.
        That is why we (and for a long time) need NOT TO BE LATE

      Then it was destined to start what is? Or is the leadership of Russia so stupid that the current results were not obvious to it?
