Ukraine is now powerful, it’s impossible to openly arm it: opinion from across the ocean

40
Ukraine is able to protect itself without the United States. Therefore, if we are to arm Kiev, then it should be done secretly. Such an opinion appeared in the popular American newspaper The Washington Times.




In the US, there were new calls for the supply of arms to Kiev. However, these appeals are “not related to Russia”. It’s rather an attempt by the American establishment to persuade President Trump to act, leads the opinion of The Washington Times columnist Todd Wood’s website "InoTV".

As the journalist believes, Kiev can protect itself. Washington has nothing to intervene in a distant conflict. In addition, Ukraine is not part of NATO. In any case, it is not worth openly interfering.

Todd Wood admits that the coherence of the campaign to provide Ukraine with a defensive weapons "Sheds light on the obvious coordinated plan" of the republican establishment, which allegedly conspire with the "left liberals" of the American media. With the Russian it is not connected.

Attempts to supply arms to Kiev are supported by a well-known thesis: they say, Ukraine is fighting against the modernized armed forces of Russia in its east, and therefore needs US help. Hence the American goal, based on the “interest of national security”: to help Ukrainians in this struggle and stop the Russian “aggression”. However, The Washington Times columnist writes, “this scenario has several inconsistencies.”

The armed forces of Ukraine are now much more powerful in comparison with those that fought on the front lines several years ago. Today, Kiev already has its own "military-industrial complex." In addition, Kiev is not at all threatened by Russians Tanks, and their "heavy artillery." According to Mr. Wood, artillery fire in Ukraine repeatedly "was fought from Russia itself." And to counter such a threat, Kiev would need an improved anti-artillery radar and means to destroy targets at a long distance. The US delivery of anti-tank weapons to Kiev “will not do” against such a threat “nothing”.

Finally, Washington should have no interest in “participating in killings on one side or the other in another remote conflict” in which the existence or security of the United States is “not endangered”.

Wood's conclusion: US intelligence agencies could provide Ukraine with weapons for protection through their secret channels. “Why should we sell weapons openly? - the observer asks. “That makes no sense.”

Mr. Voodoo, we note, for the completeness of the material did not have a single thesis: evidence of the dense fire of the "heavy artillery" of the Russians on Ukrainian territory. Apparently, Putin was beating the Kremlin from direct fire in Kiev — no wonder Kiev is mentioned so many times in the American material.

        In every Western article on similar topics, the idea or even the complete assertion that the Kremlin is bombing Ukraine, Russian aggression, etc., is always a red thread, which incidentally also concerns Syrian topics. They continue to drive their strategic lies into the doubters. It was as if they were all gathered in the assembly hall and instructed in painting.

          Well, apparently, since August 2014, Russia really intervened in the conflict on the side of the Donbass. I read, for example, the memoirs of Gubarev (one of the leaders of the Donbass), he frankly hints at this, that Russia helped the Donbass. And yes, I I believe that I did the right thing that helped.

          the assertion that the Kremlin is bombing Ukraine, Russian aggression, etc.

          If there was at least one, even the smallest evidence of Moscow’s “guilt”, even a hint, the entire collective west would have long gone to guano. And they can only cry about the “aggression of the Kremlin”. The "valiant" APUs have not yet seen what a massive air strike is, after which they will have no tanks or everything else, otherwise they would be silent in a rag. In Syria, two dozen aircraft, the course of the war changed, and these there, they are at war with Russia.

      Half of the American “beau monde” lives on Mars, so there is nothing to turn to the next high-ranking analyst there ... But at the official level, Moscow needs to give Washington a clear message that Russia’s official arms deliveries will be regarded by Russia as an extremely unfriendly step aimed at escalation of armed conflict in eastern Ukraine and the Kremlin reserves the right in this case to really introduce "modernized armed forces of Russia" to protect the Russian-speaking population of Ukraine and their national interests!

        For Ami du peuple. Yes you what! There are pennies. According to the scheme: I will give you a loan on bail, for example, of land, and you will buy weapons for this money from me (otherwise, damn it, it will go out soon, you will have to dispose of it at your own expense soon). Good bargaining and, most importantly, has been run around for centuries. For example, in Britain, at one time, the value of the rope and the executioner's services were deducted from the gallows' property ... Traditions ...

    Washington should have no interest in participating “in killings on one side or another in another remote conflict,” in which the US’s existence or security is “not compromised”.

    "Today, Kiev already has its own" military-industrial complex ""
    I wonder where did the military-industrial complex come from in Kiev? They even can’t provide for themselves. All that Kiev has / remains is repair shops that bring old iron left from the Union to a more or less acceptable state. At the same time, everything better goes on sale over the hill.

    I'm sitting through a VPN, so my checkboxes on the avatar change. I change the proxy and Yandex displays the headlines - “The new leader of the militants of Lugansk”, “The Kremlin carries out all kinds of aggression”, and other things from the Looking Glass, which is Kiev.
    In general, Don Pedro Chocolate long ago appointed his army the strongest in Europe. Why did he need someone else's weapon?
