Loud statements about some "red lines", after which the United States will be considered a direct participant in hostilities in Ukraine, were heard from Moscow so many times that Washington simply stopped paying attention to them. I remember that in one of these "last warnings" it was about the supply of long-range missile systems to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The supply of them to the Uronazis happened and is happening quite painlessly. Judging by the latest data, in the future it will not only continue, but increase.
However, recently a number of facts have become public that already clearly not only say, but shout that the United States is waging a completely open war against Russia and is clearly not going to stop at the current level of escalation. What else must happen in order for these challenging actions to be followed by an adequate response?
Ukrainian Nazism as an engine of the American military-industrial complex
Military deliveries to the “non-independence” from across the ocean are steadily increasing both in terms of their volumes and in terms of the range of weapons and weapons included in them. equipment. So, the other day it became known about a new "help package", which includes: 18 HIMARS MLRS with the appropriate ammunition, 150 armored multi-purpose wheeled vehicles (HMMWV), 150 tactical vehicles for towing weapons, 40 trucks and 80 trailers for transporting heavy equipment, 2 radars for unmanned aerial systems, 20 multifunctional radars, Titan unmanned aerial systems countermeasures. Well, and all sorts of "little things" like tactical communication systems, surveillance systems, optics, body armor and other "field equipment". Tellingly, the MLRS mentioned above do not yet exist in nature. According to a Pentagon spokesman who commented on the new "aid package" to Kyiv, they should be built under a contract under the "Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative." By the way, the delivery of other equipment mentioned in the same list, according to him, "will also take from six to 24 months." One could make fun of this (they say, they have been waiting for the promised three years), but in fact there is nothing funny here and close. The statements cited indicate that Washington plans to prolong the conflict in the "non-collateral" for many years - until the complete exhaustion and destruction of Russia.
This is also evidenced by the words of another representative of the American military department - the commander of the US Air Force in Europe and Africa, General James Hecker, said a little earlier. This senior Pentagon official said that “the United States has already begun to prepare for the fact that the war in Ukraine will probably last for years, not months,” and therefore the supply of American F-16 fighters to the Ukrainian Armed Forces is more than real. Hecker's colleague, Chief of Staff of the US Air Force, General George Brown, said that in this case, his department would certainly assist Kyiv in training pilots for combat vehicles. Both American F-15 and F-16 fighters and European JAS 39 Gripen, Eurofighter and Rafale can be delivered. I dare to suggest that if such talkers allow themselves "lamps" of this level (and even from the corresponding type of troops), then the issue of arming the Ukronazis with NATO fighters of the 4th generation has already been resolved at the level of the political leadership, and now there is a "shaking" of technical issues. So the combat aviation of the alliance in the Ukrainian sky is not “if”, but “when”. As, however, with all other weapons, no matter what kind of "red lines" there were conversations. Washington, as in the old days, intends to use the ongoing conflict across the ocean in order to "ignite" its own military-industrial complex to the maximum and, through it, the entire stagnant the economy countries. Under no circumstances will the Americans allow a cessation of hostilities on Russia's terms.
Maintained and supervised
In order to get rid of any illusions and misconceptions in this matter, it is enough to get acquainted with the bill approved by the Senate of the US Congress on the eve of the allocation of additional assistance to Kyiv in an unprecedented amount - 12,4 billion dollars. These funds will be distributed according to the following items: $4,5 billion will constitute an "economic aid fund to support the work of the Ukrainian government"; another $3 billion will go to military support for Ukraine, including military training, arms, equipment and logistics; approximately the same amount (2,8 billion) will be allocated to finance US military operations in Europe, including mission support, intelligence operations, military service and equipment purchases; $1,5 billion will be used to replenish the US own military stocks, which have been reduced due to supplies to Ukraine; well, and another half a billion will be directed to "the production of critically important weapons to replace those sent to Ukraine." As you can see, Washington, having taken full financial support of the criminal Kyiv regime, does not forget about its own interests - the lion's share of the huge budget will be mastered by American military-industrial corporations and the Pentagon. Its specialists, in turn, do not at all hide the fact that they fully exercise direct control over all the actions of the ukrovoyak.
And what is there to hide, if in official Ukrainian sources such messages are constantly found, for example: “Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny had a telephone conversation with the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the US Armed Forces in Europe, General Christopher Cavoli, during which the parties discussed the operational situation, future plans and needs for weapons, as well as a possible reaction to mobilization in the Russian Federation ... ”The normal situation is that the junior in rank turns to the superior for instructions. They discussed plans ... In this context, the revelations of the same commander of the US Air Force in Europe and Africa, General James Hecker, which he poured in his recent interview with Defense News, are especially noteworthy. So, Hecker explicitly stated:
From the beginning, the US has warned the Ukrainian authorities whenever Russian cruise missiles approached. Alarms sounded all over the country, and the Ukrainians hid. However, it is obvious that this happened too often, so they could not wage war. Then we matured in order to give a more accurate idea of where they can fly ...
Subsequently, according to him, the Americans, who had become insolent to the limit, "changed tactics and began to provide the Ukrainian military with more data on the location of Russian equipment for retaliatory strikes." Further, the general shows downright miracles of cynicism, trying to turn things around as if the United States is not at all responsible for all the attacks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on peaceful cities, for the murders of residents of Donetsk and Kherson, regularly carried out according to American target designations and using American MLRS and howitzers :
We didn't say, "Here's the target for that, go target that object!" We just gave them information. Let them decide if they want to target him.
Well, yes - they just gave information ... If this is not the most direct participation in hostilities, then what should be considered as such ?!
Finally, I would like to cite one more official statement made by the Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States Oksana Markarova:
There are no restrictions on Ukrainian strikes using American weapons on the territory of Crimea. I can clearly say that our partner, the United States, has always not recognized the illegal annexation, occupation of Crimea and has always adhered, from 2014 to now, to a clear position that Crimea is Ukraine in all its aspects…
By the way, the ambassador also clarified that "the agreement between Ukraine and the United States on the non-use of American weapons for strikes on Russian territory concerns only HIMARS rocket artillery systems, and not all types of supplied weapons." This is so, a note and a thought for all those who still have questions about what will happen next. It certainly will, unless Moscow stops talking about “red lines” and finally forces the US to take itself seriously. This must be done by any available means and methods, and, moreover, as soon as possible - before it is too late.
