Washington fears "Russian trap" set in Donbass

52
A number of officials in the US administration expressed uncertainty about whether Washington should continue the dialogue with Moscow regarding the deployment of peacekeepers in eastern Ukraine, reports TASS.




“During the weekend, US and NATO officials discussed at the Munich Security Conference proposals for peacekeepers with diplomats, including representatives from Ukraine and Russia. At the same time, some US officials privately called for diligence, they expressed concern about the fact that Washington is moving in the direction of the trap set by the Russian side, ”writes The Wall Street Journal.

Former and current US officials claim that Russia is not interested in a settlement in Ukraine. According to them, the presence of a peacekeeping contingent may inadvertently lead to a strengthening of Russia's control over Eastern Ukraine, and not to an end to the conflict,
Says the article.

The newspaper, in particular, quotes statements by the former US ambassador to Moscow, Michael McFaul. As an example, he referred to the peacekeeping operation in Cyprus, which did not lead to the expected results.

Tell me, what are the factors in this particular case, because of which the situation will develop according to a different scenario than in Cyprus, where there is a permanent split?
said McFaul.

A similar point of view was expressed by retired diplomat John Bolton, who, with George W. Bush, served as deputy secretary of state, and then was US envoy to the United Nations.

Rarely deploying peacekeeping contingents leads to different results, besides the fact that they remain forever,
noted bolton.

    the presence of a peacekeeping contingent could inadvertently lead to the strengthening of Russia's control over eastern Ukraine
    Therefore, through the Ukrainians and pressure to place peacekeepers along the border with Russia. But this option will not work for sure. Will have to either accept the Russian proposal, or this idea in the basket. Let's see what the Americans will do and what we will answer.

          Well, if you think GDP is indecisive and slow, then there’s nothing to talk about.

          But the expression of constant concern and the desire not to spoil the relationship in response to constant "flush" can not be considered indecision?
          The question is rhetorical

              I will not argue with you. I will give you many, many examples of his indecision. You will have nothing to cover (only HPP) and you will become personal. I don’t want that.
              GDP is worthy of respect, no doubt, for what was done earlier for Russia. Honor and praise be to him. It seems that it would be necessary to think about the people already ... But no ... Not enough spirit. Or "blown away" already?
              I think it's time for deserved relaxation.

      Will not be there, peacekeepers No.
      There will be a war, and very soon ... Too many reasons to start it ... Ukram (top), have already hinted, "no one is forgotten, and nothing is forgotten" ... "Aggression of Russia" is no longer relevant ... In Munich, they openly scored a gutting game ... Yes, and the Amerz order, it’s necessary to carry out the elections ... I think they won’t go on the attack ... But they’ll hit the art, anywhere, without understanding ... With subsequent throws , about how the militias fire on themselves ...

      Well, the more Americans have war, disasters, the stronger the dollar in Europe, so they’re probably interested in ending the conflicts, on one side and the other, you can sell weapons officially or quietly, but if we take as an example that they are setting the whole world against us as a major military power you can still draw in weapons. Considering any conflict and ours with Ukraine in particular

    Why be afraid. Our Kremlin grabbed the Crimea and managed it themselves, from their insolence, now they don’t know how to appease, anoint the collective west. They would have given the Crimea, but they know that the people will not understand. He doesn’t want to, but sometimes you have to reckon with the herding herd.

      If you take the position of the enemies of Russia, then Crimea grabbed and managed and don’t know ... But if you remember what kind of tension went on the energy blockade of Crimea, where the bill went just for days. Ukraine drove, building up power lines, to remove the load when the Crimea is turned off. And Russia drove power lines to the Crimea, built substations, introduced additional blocks at nuclear power plants. And the difference, where Russia did not have time a bit, had to sit with a harsh energy saving.
      Now Russia is firmly in favor of ... holding the transit of Russian gas through Ukraine. Russia should not jerk until 2019, when the agreement ends, it will be necessary to conclude a new one. And while it is not at all clear whether the Turkish Stream and Nord Stream 2 will have time to build by then, Russia will be satisfied even with such a precarious world with provocations in the Donbass.

Therefore, they come up with all sorts of legal tricks in order to gain a foothold in this area, on our borders. And we only answer them “asymmetrically”.
