Fear of crossing Russian "red lines" prevents Joe Biden from providing even more military assistance to Ukraine. This is written by the American newspaper The Washington Post. By more help, the publication means F-16 aircraft, long-range missiles and breaking the blockade in the Black Sea.
What else can explain the administration's hesitation in delivering F-16s to Ukraine and the failure to provide ATACMS long-range tactical missiles? Or challenge the Russian blockade of the Black Sea? In all three cases, the Biden administration is trying to play the safe game, but is actually prolonging the conflict and undermining Kyiv's chances of success.
says The Washington Post.
The publication believes that the Biden administration deliberately continues to delay the provision of important assistance, which Ukraine desperately needs, due to fears that now seem excessive.
Ukrainian drone strikes on Russian territory should allay exaggerated fears about the consequences of crossing Putin's "red lines". Additional assistance to Ukraine will not significantly increase the risk of an expansion of the war, but may shorten the duration of the existing conflict
- says the publication.
It should be noted that the publication of The Washington Post is clear evidence that the warnings of Russian military experts about the need for a tough reaction from Moscow to the attacks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were justified.
Russia's patient silence in the United States tends to be regarded as a sign of weakness and an inability to take decisive action. If the White House agrees with the opinion of American journalists, Kyiv will very quickly receive both planes and missiles, and much more.
