The Spectator: Neutrality of Ukraine no longer makes sense for the West


The aged mastodon of geopolitics, former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, came up with his own version of how to avoid a world war. As it should be for an experienced policy, his point of view was not so much noteworthy as unusual. According to the ex-diplomat, the neutrality of Ukraine for the West and the process of resolving the crisis no longer makes much sense. Therefore, Kyiv must be quickly accepted into NATO.


As Kissinger writes in his article for The Spectator, all the successes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are connected exclusively with the help of the US and the EU, the armed forces themselves, and Ukraine as a whole, are not capable of anything. Therefore, it will no longer be possible to hide the fact that Moscow is at war not with the Ukrainians, but with the real collective West.

At the same time, the former Secretary of State of America did not notice especially bright prospects for the Ukrainian side, calling Crimea, the LPR and the DPR only a hypothetical subject of negotiations after the end of the military conflict. According to Kissinger, the attempts of the Ukrainian and Western sides to declare claims to these territories make it absolutely unattainable to end the conflict by military means or with the help of a peace treaty.

As for the territories liberated by the Russian Armed Forces, self-determination referendums would be a possible solution to the conflict situation, the American diplomat believes. This position is, of course, astonishing. Apparently, he has not yet opened the worldwide network and still has not found out that such referendums have already taken place, their result is known.

The most rational grain is contained in Kissinger's thought that the historical role of Russia should not be neglected and belittled. In his opinion, Moscow has been making a decisive contribution to the balance of world forces for more than a thousand years, and this foundation should not be violated.

    Another senile crawled out.
    Here, about thousand-year-old Russia, I remember - here, about the referendums of Donbass, I don’t remember.
    Here to play, not to play here, but here to "wrap" Ukraine into NATO.
    Maybe there was once a political mastodon, but it all came out.

    here is the question...why should the West put pressure on Russia? Why does the West need Russia? as a gas station. is there any problem with this? the oil-for-beads program has been effectively carried out for 30 years ... why should the West rock the boat??? even now Putin almost begs not to leave his alligators without money...

    It expresses part of the sentiment of the establishment. Somewhere misunderstood, somewhere incomplete information. Hence all the nonsense. What are the negotiations? About what? It's time for Russia to start winning.

    If they bargain for the recognition of Crimea and new territories, provided that Ukraine maintains its statehood and neutral status, this will mean the defeat of the Russian Federation, and Ukraine's entry into the EU, against which, according to Mr. and directly contradicts the presented ultimatum on non-expansion and return to the 1979 borders.

    It's you in vain about the "senile", there would be more such "senile" in the Russian elite in order to grow wiser. This man is not a friend of Russians (and what kind of Jew is a friend of Russians?), but he understands the world and the importance of not disturbing the balance. And he certainly did not miss the referendums in the new territories, he simply ignores them, as well as the Russian leadership, otherwise they would not have draped from there so quickly and without a fight, shame and disgrace in the eyes of the Novorossians.

    The war in Ukraine will end tomorrow if NATO gives guarantees to the "elite" of the Russian Federation and accepts it into its ranks as its own. The "elite" of the Russian Federation for the sake of this will give up not only Ukraine, but the whole of Russia. There is a war of the capitalists of the Russian Federation, Ukraine, NATO countries for property, for money, for the sales market. The people of Ukraine and the Russian Federation are consumables. NATO has not yet cornered the Kremlin, when the Kremlin will have only one way out, to defeat NATO or the entire "elite" of the Russian Federation, together with the Kremlin, will die.
