Former US Ambassador to Russia: Kiev will return control over Donbass under Biden

95

Ukraine will regain control over the territory of Donbass during the presidency of Joe Biden. Former US Ambassador to Russia Alexander Vershbow is sure of this, speaking in an interview with the Ukrainian newspaper "Gordon".


Vershbow suggested that the return of Donbass to Kiev's control would take place under Joe Biden. However, he did not specify at what time this will happen. By law, Biden's term ends in 2025, but he intends to run for a second term. The ex-ambassador also did not spread the question of how Kiev will return Donbass if he does not want to negotiate and simply cannot win.

But Vershbow is not so optimistic about Crimea. According to him, the return of the peninsula "will take more time" and will be associated with the resignation of Vladimir Putin. Vershbow is convinced that as soon as Putin leaves the Kremlin, the new leader of Russia will "come to his senses" and return Crimea to Kiev, since "there are protests and discontent in the country."

Vershbow also threatened Russia with increasing pressure from the collective West at all levels "for aggression in Donbas" and to increase support for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Thus, it can be stated that the West continues to promise Ukraine "support", instilling false hopes. Brussels and Washington understand that Russia will never return Crimea and will support Donbass, but they need a constant point of tension on the Russian border to continue building up their forces. Kiev knows that in the event of a conflict in Donbass, Russia will come to the aid of the republics, and NATO will not interfere, preferring to fight Russia "to the last Ukrainian," but radical politicians demand blood and can provoke a war.

Earlier, Russia said that the issue with Crimea was closed, and if an attempt was made to repulse it by force, Ukraine would "lose its statehood." With regard to the republics of Donbass, it was confirmed that Russia has protected and will continue to protect the Russian-speaking population and Russian citizens living in these territories.

Vershbow suggested that the return of Donbass under the control of Kiev would take place under Joe Biden ..."- He expects that Biden will become for life president and will live forever? fool Oh, and the "optimists"! Forgotten eastern wisdom: "Repeat "halva" a hundred times - all the same it will not become sweeter in your mouth!"
        PS I personally bet that he will "grunt" (well, or become "incapacitated", although one might think that he is now "capable"!) Somewhere closer to the end of the term - he will not make it to the second!

      Biden's second call with a proposal to meet with VVP on the climate report suggests that the American administration is getting sober. By angering the Chinese, the Amerzians are in serious trouble. China is escalating tensions in Asia. He is preparing for an operation in Taiwan, ready to fight for Myanmar. The United States cannot stand aside. In this situation, they have no time for the conflict in Ukraine or other exacerbations in Europe. They will bargain with GDP, they no longer need Crimea. They will want guarantees that Russia will not start hostilities in the Donbas. Although, what do I understand in these games?

          They play too much and no longer see the shores of reality, and this is always fraught ...

          Because no one has ever punished them. So they don't filter the bazaar.

    Well, if Vershbow agrees to sacrifice the United States (turned into nuclear ruins), then perhaps a couple of dozen surviving Bandera members will somehow leak into Donetsk. And that's not a fact. "Under Biden" even sounds funny, he would have to hold out until the end of his term, "he would have written under the Democrats, or under Kamalla Harris," it would have been more realistic.

    you can’t pull the cat by the balls if it’s clear that the fights of the Russian Federation are no longer with NATO, then you have to strike first, so at least there will be an advantage!

    In any way they will climb .. so many people were driven in and technicians - they can easily make a mess on May 9 .. "As a gift" to us ... And the fact that they are waiting in the West, they will not wait for Putin's departure - this is no secret to anyone .. He interferes not only with Western masters .. He interferes with our many masters too ..

    It will not work, Biden will be changed to Harris before the fall. In general, Donbass will never return, even though the "green light" will become president.

    NATO will not interfere, preferring to fight with Russia "to the last Ukrainian" - this is the kind of dependence you have to get into, knowing that you are being pushed to the slaughter and continue to bend "your". Mental greed and freakiness.

    Do the Crimeans want to go to Ukraine? No, they don't. To be the poorest country in Europe, to travel to Polish beds, to praise Bandera, Shukhevych, Mazepa, to be in first place in terms of the disease from coronavirus and in mortality from it?

    This suggests that Biden will give the command to the Ukrainian military. But in my understanding, this is not the main problem. Biden, although he is old, understands perfectly well that Ukraine against Russia will not last long. And he will give such a command either on the eve of some events in Russia in order to delay the patriotic and power component from the Country or when something already happens. In general, everyone will need to prepare something hot.

    It is difficult not to argue, but to talk with a person who has a mental illness, schizophrenia. Because only schizophrenics believe and think that any of their thoughts spoken aloud is the only true and categorical. And practice shows that this disease is also transmitted through the air. The most interesting thing is that it was not the neo-Nazis-Bandera who contracted it from their Khazyaevs, but Khazyaev from their slaves
