Washington considers the armament of Ukraine as a lever of influence on Russia

Washington considers the armament of Ukraine as a lever of influence on Russia

The American side is losing patience and wants to force Moscow to change its calculations.

The proposal to transfer defensive lethal weapons to Ukraine, promoted by the State Department and the Pentagon, indicates the growing irritation of the administration of Donald Trump by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the wider deterioration of relations between the US and Russia.

The Washington Post , loyal to the Democratic Party, writes about this , recalling the escalation of tension in US-Russian relations after Vladimir Putin's decision to reduce the diplomatic mission of the United States by more than half.

Currently, a plan is expected to approve the transfer of anti-tank and anti-aircraft defense systems to Ukraine from Trump and his closest advisers. This proposal is not very different from that which President Barack Obama rejected because of the fear of intensifying the war in the Donbass. In addition, the previous US president did not want to create a situation in which American weapons could kill Russian soldiers. Theoretically, this situation can bring two nuclear countries closer to direct conflict.

During the election campaign, the Trump team also rejected the idea of ​​transferring weapons to Ukraine, removing this item from the Republican Party program. But now Trump's main associates in the sphere of national security are actively discussing the possibility of transferring weapons to the Ukrainian military. The final date when such a decision can be made, no. But the debate continues against the backdrop of a planned meeting of American and Russian diplomats in the coming weeks to discuss the end of the war in Ukraine.

The publication also recalls that the newly appointed US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker also supports the idea of ​​arming Ukraine. Some officials in Washington say that it is becoming more popular, as the American side is losing patience with Russia's behavior, and is also unhappy with the fact that Moscow does not comply with the Minsk agreements. Washington's goal, according to an unnamed American official, is to change Russia's strategic thinking. And the transfer of weapons to Ukraine can become a lever that will help to do this.

Earlier, the former US ambassador to Ukraine, John Herbst, wrote in an article for the Atlantic Council that arguments against the armament of Ukraine could not withstand criticism . All allegations against the transfer of American weapons are based either on myths or obsolete estimates.

As Yury Butusov wrote in his article for ZN.UA , the countries of the West did not develop a clear doctrine of rendering military assistance to Ukraine , as a result of which supplies to Kiev were subject to situational decisions.

According to him, Western diplomacy insists on the need to end the conflict in the Donbass and reduce the escalation of hostilities, but Western politicians have not explained to their military how exactly it is possible to achieve these goals.

Read more about the problematic aspects of US military aid to Ukraine in Yuri Butusov's article " US Military Equipment for Ukraine: Political Symbolism and Purpose-Setting " in the weekly Mirror of the Week, Ukraine.

Lukashenko said that relations with Russia have worsened

Lukashenko said that relations with Russia have worsened

President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko noted the deterioration of relations with Russia in the context of the restoration of complete border areas at the border.

He stated this in an interview with Russia 24 TV channel.

"We have a great debt to the society under the treaty on the Union state. We have lost a lot in many directions, but the worst thing is that on certain issues we allow a kickback," Lukashenko said.

At the same time, the Belarusian leader noted that equal rights for the citizens of his country and the Russian Federation were a prime cause.

"Today, we are already starting to ban the border, Russian border guards have been taken to the border, customs officers are beginning to behave obscurely, blocking goods. People from third countries only through international checkpoints - that is, there is no confidence in us now. This is a serious danger, we are beginning to retreat," - He said, adding that he wished to move forward in bilateral relations with the Russian Federation and preventing their deterioration.

The threat of large-scale invasion of Putin's troops in Ukraine

Based on four important factors , which was written by the "Apostrophe", well-known journalist Yuri Butusov expressed the prognosis that Russia will not have a large-scale offensive on Ukraine.

This is stated in Butusov's article on Censor.Net website.

Predicting the absence of a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the journalist notes that the war in the country continues and requires rapid changes in the state in the form of accelerated modernization of the army and defense structures.

"Despite the many things that have been done, the Ukrainian state and the forces of defense and security are far from modern standards," notes Butusov.

At the same time, he adds that the country can be proud of patriotism and readiness for the self-sacrifice of Ukrainians. However, for qualitative superiority over the enemy, believes Butusov, it is necessary to increase the level of professionalism.
