US threw Ukraine? What threatens Trump's resonance decision

on Sun Dec 30, 2018 9:12 am
US threw Ukraine? What threatens Trump's resonance decision

Ukraine received an alarming message - the United States will no longer assist other countries in resolving their military conflicts. The statement was made by US President Donald Trump. Taking into account the exacerbation of the Azov Sea and regular threats from Russia, the situation is alarming.

What are the risks for Ukraine and what it means - has found out.

During a visit to the American base in Iraq, Donald Trump made a sharp statement. While there, along with his wife Melanie, as well as the national security adviser John R. Bolton and a small group of reporters, he stated that "the United States can not remain the police world."

"We are scattered all over the world, we are in countries that most people have not even heard of, and frankly, it's ridiculous," the New York Times quotes his words .

Commenting on his decision to withdraw troops from Syria, the White House head said he would not allow third countries to use the US military for their own defense. In the context of the fight against IDIL, according to Trump, the States have made significant progress, so it's time to return troops.

@FLOTUS Melania and I were honored to visit our incredible troops at Al Asad Air Base in Iraq. God bless the USA! pic.twitter.com/rDlhITDvm1

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 26 December 2018 r.
"From the very beginning, I have said that the purpose of our military mission is to take away the main points of the IDIL. Eight years ago, we announced that we were sending the military there for 3 months, but stayed there, and now we are doing the right thing and let it be done to the end "- said Trump.

It was Trump's first visit to the combat zone after becoming president and commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces. Moreover, he was accompanied by maximum secrecy.

What does this mean for Ukraine?
Donald Trump's rhetoric does not change since the beginning of his presidency. He is convinced that his country often takes on the role of a firefighter who extinguishes centers of ignition all over the world. According to Donald Trump, the wars in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan have already been completed, so the United States must stop.

According to Andrei Buzarov, an international correspondent, the president's statement is another PR to strengthen his own position and is aimed, first of all, at the audience of the Middle East. There are separate and very important geopolitical interests in the United States related to Israel and Saudi Arabia. Policies concerning Ukraine in particular will not change.

"I exclude the influence on Ukraine: the US strategy and actions in Ukraine are different from the Middle East, we see direct military intervention in the situation in Iraq, open military assistance to the Kurds, we do not have this, Americans are very precarious, we see a direct military intervention in Russia, so The US has other priorities here,"- explained OBOZREVATEL Buzarov.

An expert on international issues, Andrei Karakuts, holds a similar opinion. He is convinced that US assistance to Ukraine will not stop, the more the plan of action is already prescribed in the US budget.

"In the year 2016, Trump stated that he would reduce the cost of defending his allies, but if he evaluated the assistance to Ukraine, then it remains at roughly the same level, and it is necessary to look at the goals that the administration has set itself, especially since Trump wants to trade with our country. , sell, for example, the same Javelin (anti-tank missile systems - Ed.). It is profitable for him, "Caracus said.

At the same time, much depends on the future appointments of Trump in his administration. It is known that one of the supporters of active military support of Ukraine, Defense Minister James Mattheys from the new year will resign.

How does the US help Ukraine?
The help is limited to three main areas.

It is expected that the United States will help Ukraine with arms next year. This is about the possible transfer of Ukraine's military-class frigate Oliver Hazard Perry, as well as the purchase of Javelin complexes. Moreover, the United States approved the provision of financial support to the Armed Forces of $250 million and opened the door to bid for American weapons.

The second one is diplomatic

The United States is a signatory of the Budapest Memorandum, as well as a country that holds Russia off from active hostilities in the Donbass. Earlier, OBOZREVATEL wrote about the resolution of US senators, in which they urged Donald Trump to begin a "powerful multinational operation to ensure freedom of navigation in the Black Sea."

Another leverage for the Russian Federation's aggression is sanctions. December 19, the US Treasury Department introduced new restrictions on 18 Russians, three companies and one online resource. The list also includes Russian spies Alexander Myshkin and Anatoly Chepiha, who are suspected of poisoning Sergei Skripal, an ex-employee of the GRU, in the British Salisbury.

In early 2019, the United States can introduce "hell sanctions" - the so-called package of restrictions due to violation of the RF Law on the control of chemical and biological weapons. It can affect 70% of the Russian economy.

The third one is economic

Most of the assistance is reflected in cooperation with the International Monetary Fund. Given the prominent American lobby in this structure, the country's position is largely taken into account when granting a loan. Assessing the current state of Ukraine's economy, IMF assistance is vital for the country. That is why the US favorable attitude is a guarantee of stability of Ukraine.

Russia is preparing a terrible provocation in the Donbas: the intelligence has learned the details

Russia is preparing a terrible provocation in the Donbas: the intelligence has learned the details

In the territory of the Russian-occupied Donbass, the Russian intelligence services are preparing a chemical attack against the local population.

This is reported by the resource Inforesist, referring to the words of the representative of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Vadim Skibitskaya.

He told that a number of signs of such training proves provocation. The invaders want to attack as many people as possible and lead to many casualties. Moreover, there are a considerable number of potentially dangerous enterprises in the ORDL which store arsenals of toxic substances, including chlorine and ammonia.

"Among them is the chemical giant" Stirol "(Gorlovka). The inability of the occupation authorities to ensure their safe storage can lead to man-made disasters," said Skibitsky.

He stressed that Russia will present the act of terrorism in the future as an attack of Ukrainian security forces against the "civilians of the Donbas". It is known that in the middle of this month on the Donbass from the Russian Federation came a group of specialists with chemical warfare and poisonous substances.

"The readiness of the occupation-cooperative forces for operations in the conditions of chemical pollution has been intensified. The newest means of personal protection of the personnel of units 1 and 2 AK, which are going to test after the terrorist attack, were introduced from the aggressor country," the statement reads.

Recall that Russian mass media have been preparing public opinion for one and a half months that this action will be held by Ukraine.

"Under a similar scheme, Russia conducted an information operation on the eve of the simulation of a chemical attack in Syria on November 24, in the city of Aleppo, in order to justify further attacks by the Syrian opposition forces," summed up Skibitsky.

In the scandal with the financing of Putin's friend in the EU, a Ukrainian trail appeared: details

Details of the scandal of the French National Front Leader Marin Le Pen have been made public.

This is reported by the Voice of America publication.

Oleksandr Babakov, one of the main leaders of the interests of the Russian Federation in Ukraine, participated in the 2014 agreement on financing the preparation of Marin Le Pen for the presidential election on the Russian side.

"It owns 11 out of 24 Ukrainian oblenergos. Gennadiy Timchenko, known as the central contractor for the construction of the North Stream 2 pipeline, has remained unarmed," the statement said.

It is noted that she received 9.4 million euros in the Russian bank. And Babakov made an initiative to take a loan through the "First Czech-Russian Bank". This financial institution was under the control of Timchenko.

After the loan was presented, the bank closed one year later. The owner can be arrested. The Russians began to demand the return of money from the French. As a result, the treasurer of the party has to send a notary in Russia for every 165,000 dollars for 165 thousand dollars every few months. The recipient is not aware of where this money goes."- The report says.

Le Pen's election has been lost, but the fact of obtaining a 9.4 million euro loan from Russians has become the subject of sharp criticism of her party and a reason to suspect money laundering, and other crimes can not be ruled out.

"It's a distillation of how non-transparent finances interfere with foreign interference," said German Marshall Fund analyst Joshua Kirshensbaum

Money from the Russians "National Front" got under 6%. This was written by the press. The mentioned bank was declared insolvent in 2016, as well as a hundred other Russian financial institutions.

"I did not have time to go to the bank for a temporary administration, as a party loan was first sold to an opaque Russian bank, and then to the Russian company" aircraft spare parts. "It is associated with the military personnel of the Russian Federation, in particular, it cooperates with the Syrian Air Force," the report said.

The fact that the debt has resold "aircraft spare parts", do not deny the party Le Pen.

"It was a bit surprising to us that the loan was transferred to a company that sells aircraft equipment," said the September Treasurer of the September party, pointing out that the bank had a link with the military intelligence.

"In Russia, they are all - the former members of the KGB," he added.

This is wrong, suffering from the civilian population".

In this context, the US ambassador called "illegal" the fact that Ukrainian ships "can not freely swim in their own territorial waters." According to her, "Tragedy" is a cut off of the Crimea and parts of Lugansk and Donetsk regions from the rest of Ukraine in connection with the conflict in the east.

Our sanctions related to the Donbas conflict will remain in force. until Russia withdraws its troops from the Donbas. Similarly, Crimean sanctions will be in effect until Russia returns the peninsula to Ukraine."
