WP: Good relations with Russia are more important for the US than support for Ukraine

WP: Good relations with Russia are more important for the US than support for Ukraine

The unconditional support of Ukraine is not in the national interests of the United States, maintaining good relations with Russia is certainly more important than good relations with Kiev. About it writes The Washington Post.


According to the newspaper’s observer, the United States and Ukraine are not strategic partners in the long run, Washington needs to pay more attention to relations with Russia.

The USA and Ukraine are not friends in the long run. Ukraine is not a bastion of Western democracy

- the newspaper writes, drawing readers' attention to the fact that throughout its existence Ukraine has constantly "rushed from one extreme to the other," demonstrating either pro-Western or pro-Russian views.

There are no guarantees that the Ukrainian government will continue democratic reforms. And even if this happens, the country will still be next to Russia. The unpleasant truth is that Ukraine will always be less important for American foreign policy than Russia. Russia may be a great power that is in recession, but it still has the ability to undermine US foreign policy around the world

- claims the author of the material.

Therefore, the newspaper writes, Washington needs to build relations with Russia, and not with Ukraine, despite the fact that "Moscow pursues a policy hostile to the United States."

Russia’s policy may not be liked, but America will not gain anything if it takes an even more hostile position towards it, and lose even more if it cannot work on issues of mutual interest

- concludes the newspaper.

          The United States will continue to impose sanctions against Russia until it returns Crimea to Ukraine, said Morgan Ortagus, head of the US State Department press service.
          She announced this on her Twitter page on the occasion of the visit to Kiev by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

          “We will continue to impose sanctions against Russia until it begins to maintain peace in the Donbass and stops the occupation of Crimea,” wrote Ortagus.

            There would be no “Crimea” - they would impose sanctions for the occupation of Siberia and demand that it be returned. And to whom to return, "we do not know for sure, but we are working on it ..."
            yes

          Everything is painfully obvious - the USA has come the time to come to grips with China.
          And they got busy. Coronovirus is a witness. Yes, and Soros will not give lies.
          And in the tight and stubborn struggle with China for the United States, the neutrality of Russia in this mess is very important, that’s what curtsey went to. I won’t be surprised if they offer to exchange China for Ukraine (who needs it). But not Syria - there is also a battlefield with China (Iran is by no means hustling there, but on quite a yuan, all for the Shiite corridor for the Silk Road).
          ... And I would not be surprised if in this case we can show ... some understanding ... but only for good Russian interest. yes

        Is logical. Russia, unlike Ukraine, does not beg for money from the United States. Russia scares the allies forcing them to buy American weapons, i.e. business interests here have a clear strategy for obtaining super profits. And Ukraine .... everything that the United States wanted to take from it-has already taken (except for Crimea).

        You can, of course, rejoice at looking at Trump's tense face when he talks about Ukraine.
        But the thing is that the expression of this person on the same occasion changes several times a day.
        In the morning he is sad, and laughs at lunch. In the evening, tears pour, and before bed he laughs.
        Age, however ... Insanity is on the way! wink

      Rwinda is an exclusively anti-Russian project .. In the absence of Russophobia, it loses its meaning .. Initially, the Austrian-German idea, help the Bolsheviks with Ukrainianization at the expense of Russian lands and people, and now the Anglo-Saxons led by the Jewish oligarchy .. Would enclose this cesspool and send it from Russia all come along both working women and cultural figures with TV and showbiz .. Forget about this cesspool for 20 years, and then see if the gate is worth opening a bit .. In principle, that our leadership does, though I want it to be quicker and harder .. And then Kolya from Urengoy and other creative people from TV and culture podzadolbali .. Drive in Nenko nehai live on their own!

They got their own territory for free, well, Duc and our prosrut! more passports need to be issued! Brothers zhezh .. say the law? Well, the right laws must be adopted .. No need, they are not needed .. We have terrible unemployment in small towns ZP beggars this is unemployment when you work for food and no more .. And when in the 404th Arctic fox comes millions will rush here and will be happy to work for the balance, and we have capitalism! And who will they take to work? This problem in Moscow itself, the dollar has doubled in full growth, but the salary is the same .. Who brought down the labor market? Do not guess?

Now in the 404th a huge bubble is inflated which burst, God forbid, they are not the United States and they cannot infinitely inflate it! And who will pay for all this? WE! Alas, this is so .. But I do not want this, we have the center and the north of Russia in ruins since the time of the Great October Revolution. Never have people lived there full and close as in other republics of the union. The Kostroma, Ivanovo, and Kirov regions have been suffering terrible poverty all the time ..

      Ukraine is a pawn that never became a queen, and in the foreseeable future it is unlikely to be. In addition, showing too clearly "friendship" with the United States runs the risk of becoming embroiled in a full-blown conflict with Russia, I'm afraid the United States is not eager to cover the Russian fields with the corpses of its soldiers.

      Posted by Emma Ashford
      Emma Ashford, research fellow at the Cato Institute.
      What is the Cato Institute.
      “The Cato Institute is a libertarian in its political philosophy and advocates for the limited role of government in internal and external affairs, as well as for the reliable protection of civil rights.

      The State Department is the State Department, and an article in WP will also not be printed just like that ... Here rather:
      1) a hint of Khokhlam, so that they know their place
      2) removing the backlash from the reader (Zhirinovsky does exactly that, throwing periodically semi-extremist bones to the electorate)
      3) perhaps an attempt to roll the dice of Russia before any negotiations

            ".. But Mosfilm kept the film library, and we managed to modernize the studio, and didn’t get a penny from the state. I want to emphasize it again, because there are rumors that Shakhnazarov’s influential friends are upstairs. Not a penny! Moreover , Mosfilm is the only studio that pays not only tax, but also the excess tax - as a unitary enterprise. The tax is decent: in 2011 we paid the state more than 300 million taxes and more than 20 million more ...

            What do you think about government participation in the financing of film production? Should filmmakers count on budget injections?

            Karen Shakhnazarov: Unlike my colleagues, I have been without it for twenty years. "City of Zero" was the last film made with public money. And I am already beginning to doubt that this help is needed: it corrupts. Here, Lenfilm asks to give them a billion, but I think: why give a billion to those who are in a fortune, excuse me, have profiled? Why is it taken from Mosfilm and given to Lenfilm? We didn’t do anything, we rebuilt the studio .... "

    The USA and Ukraine are not friends in the long run. Ukraine is not a bastion of Western democracy
    What kind of "bastion of Western democracy" can be discussed if it is exclusively an irritant to Russia and so far a small buffer (for several hours) in the event of a war. This "bastion" has been yelling for the sixth year that it is fighting Russia and cannot (and will not) cope with the Lao Lao PDR and the American side understands this very well, although it does not speak out loud for political reasons. WP writes reasonable things, but who will allow Trump to restore at least a little normal relations with Russia?

    And then you read it, it seems that the United States did not impose any sanctions, and the North Poto was not blocked by the States

    “Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?” - Asked the head of the Department of State, Mike Pompeo, journalist Mary Louise Kelly, while seasoning the question with a swear word.

    Perhaps Russia is a great power that is in recession, but she still has the ability to undermine US foreign policy around the world.

    Just 5 years ago, loudly proclaimed to the whole world - "Russia is a regional country." (Obama).
    Now - "a great power that is in decline" - but we are afraid of it.
    In Russia they say simpler - "sees an eye, but a tooth is numb"! yes

    Are you surprised that there is an alternative opinion in such a well-known newspaper? Freedom of speech and freedom of speech are real in the USA, you won’t see this on the first channel. As Ronald Reagan said: American: “In the USA, I can go to the White House and say,“ Reagan is wrong! ” .
    As for the article, the journalist is mistaken. It is not only in Ukraine, but the fact that the Russian Federation has violated the existing world order, here the USA and the EU have already taken up the pose and this is a matter of principle. In terms of trade and relations, this hit Europe more, since the United States didn’t have much trade with Russia and there wasn’t much cooperation, and sometimes it’s even beneficial for them to impose sanctions against any flows, at the same time they’ll knock them out of the market. In addition, the United States is distinguished by the stability of its policy, in Russia, almost everything traditionally depends on one person and no one knows what will happen after Putin, so it is even more likely that Russia itself will make concessions than the USA.
    And the article still contradicts the popular thesis here that the West in the person of the USA supposedly wants to destroy Russia and organizes it all. So the article does not go into any gates.

    she is two days old
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2020/01/30/democrats-trump-isnt-hawkish-enough-ukraine-thats-not-impeachable/
    author - a certain Emma Ashford

    The article is actually that the accusation of leniency towards Russia should not be one of the evidence in the case of impeachment.
    When will links to sources to sources begin to give? request

    But why should they support them? They will fall apart into specific principalities, like eight hundred and a few years ago, and it is easier to deal with their individual princes.

    Opinion is not without reason. However, I would like to note that this is not editorial material, but copyright. That is, a specific person sets out his point of view on the pages of a newspaper. Once again - my point of view on the pages of WP. This is called freedom of speech.

    That's just in Kiev on this subject a different opinion. They are sure that in Washington they only say: “how poor the Ukrainians are there, they protect us from the new guns with all their might”

      You know, oddly enough, but after all, in the article of this Emma Ashford it is just written that all this is said in Washington.
      We have heard variations on this throughout the hearings. In October, Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman testified to the joint House Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees that “a strong and independent Ukraine is critical to US national security interests because Ukraine is a front-line state and a bulwark against Russian aggression.
      We heard about this during the hearing. In October, Army Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Windman showed the joint House’s intelligence, oversight and foreign affairs committees that “a strong and independent Ukraine is crucial to US national security interests because Ukraine is an advanced state and a bulwark against Russian aggression

      Moreover, the article specifically states that Trump supporters are Republicans, who, although they opposed impeachment, emphasized that they are supporters of assistance to Ukraine
      In the House Judiciary Committee's impeachment report, the Republicans opposing impeachment offered a similar sentiment: “The minority wishes to note for the record its unwavering commitment to security for the people and the nation of Ukraine.”
      In a report on impeachment of the judicial committee of the House of Representatives, Republicans who opposed impeachment expressed a similar opinion: "The minority wants to note for their record an unshakable commitment to the security of the people and nation of Ukraine."

      The meaning of the article in the Washington post is precisely that its author personally is precisely against the fact that they all speak on this subject ....

    Are there any Belarusians on the site? It is very interesting to know ...... Acrobatic pirouettes in the circle of Putin of your leader Lukashenko and gentle kisses below the back of one of the first persons in the United States, in your elections, will add votes to your leader? Sooooo interesting to know! I hope that here, on the site, there are people from Belarus ......

    Omitting all sorts of passages about the “aggressiveness of Russia,” is who in our Washington Post really got sober-headed ?!
    Either our man (the editors did not finish watching), or what kind of "trick" they are preparing - it cannot be otherwise !!!
    "I do not believe!!!"
