American analyst: If Russia attacks Ukraine, it will be the largest war in Europe since WWII

175

Recently, the head of the CIA, William Burns, came to Russia, where he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin. During the meeting, on behalf of Washington, he expressed concern about the concentration of the Russian Armed Forces near the borders of Ukraine.


This is mentioned by Fred Kaplan in an article for the American magazine Slate, in which he discusses the likelihood and possible scale of the alleged Russian-Ukrainian war.

The US intelligence community discussed this problem not only during a visit to Moscow. Also, the question of "Russian aggression" against Ukraine was raised by the Director of National Intelligence of the United States Avril Haynes at a meeting in Brussels with representatives of the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance. She stated that every effort should be made to prevent the invasion of the Russian army into Ukraine. According to Haynes, if it happens, it will be much larger than the one that allegedly happened in 2014.

James Bush, an expert on Russia from the Eurasian Group, expresses doubts that Moscow is preparing to attack, since the 92 troops gathered near the Ukrainian border are not enough to take over the country, whose population he for some reason called "fifty million." For comparison, the American analyst cited the example of the Soviet occupation of the 10 millionth Czechoslovakia in 1968. Then it took 250 thousand soldiers for this.

According to Bush, if Russia does attack Ukraine, it will be the largest war in Europe since World War II.

It is hard not to notice that the topic of the Russian-Ukrainian war has recently become extremely popular in the Western media. There is a feeling that the authors of such articles for some reason deliberately whip up an atmosphere of fear and hostility among the population of Europe and the United States. One explanation is the attempts to divert public attention from the internal problems that are faced not only by Ukraine, but also by the West.

      They create a "scarecrow", actively fight with it, then they will announce victory ... I remember there was such a popular number, the fight of Nanai boys ... There, one person depicts both wrestlers at the same time. The screams of the media and all sorts of "attack" scenarios remind me very much of this number ...

        They want to throw exactly this scenario IF Russia strikes back at Ukraine's provocative attack on the LPNR. And Zelensky has not yet agreed to this. Perhaps that is why Zelya is now being pressed.

        That's for sure, let's remember the history of the last century: in September 1939, the Britons and Franks did not move a single millimeter to help Poland against the Germans. And now the soldiers of the NATO armies will not die on the Ukrainian fields in any way!

        As a result, Ukraine will suffer the most. With the outbreak of hostilities, its territory will be torn apart by its western partners under various pretexts.

Ukraine is simply not formally a member of NATO, but the bloc itself has already sharply approached the borders of the Russian Federation. Only the buffer zone remains, where the DPR and LPR.

        Rotten number. When Russia realizes the inevitability of an attack by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, then we will have the last trump card - to close the valve on the pipe due to force majeure - the threat of a gas pipeline explosion as a result of hostilities.

          10 hours to clean up? Maybe so.
          Although I previously gave my forecast on this site or in "LiveJournal": an attack by the LDNR forces will cause the collapse of the Ukrainian Armed Forces front until noon of this day, then a part of the Armed Forces’s forces will transfer to the side of the republics; "front" and end. The country's leadership is in a hurry to fly to Israel or Europe. The population of the territories up to the Dnieper meets the forces of the LDNR with bread, salt and flowers. The western part of Ukraine is trying to proclaim independence from Kiev, but the next morning is followed by a surgical joint strike by Poland and Hungary, but their paratroopers do not risk crossing the old "Curzon Line", not knowing the reaction of the Russian Federation and LDNR to this action. This is followed by negotiations and reconciliation of the parties, but with the partition of Ukraine: the LDNR is renamed into the SFR (Slobozhansky Federal Republic), some of the central regions think together with Kiev, and in the regions of Western Ukraine the population is preparing to hold referenda on joining Poland, Hungary, Slovakia ... That's all.

      We often say exactly the opposite things, including leaders.
      Sometimes, for example, it is argued that if today the population of an economic bloc is less than 300 million, then this bloc will not be able to take place.
      From this we conclude that we need Ukraine.
      Of course, people there will have to reflash their brains, but we ourselves have brought the situation to this by criminal inaction.

        The US policy, to divide countries according to mentality, in order to make them easier to govern, will only help Russia. In Ukraine, the situation is the same, the population is pro-Western and pro-Russian. This should be used to your advantage.

    .... well, why attack when it is already possible to buy it ... the land market started in September ... so why should there be a war ... and there is really no one to fight there ... so motley gangs ...

                I know what you will answer. That all this is a lie, a trend and a provocation, but in fact they all have chiki-bunches and javelins.

                The fact that Ukraine is full of various foreign instructors does not make the Armed Forces of Ukraine one hundred percent combat-ready.
                They had a chance precisely in 2014-15. Not frightened by boilers, on the courage, with a large number of different equipment, they could well put the squeeze on the LPNR.
                Now the moment is missed by them. They obviously did not expect such a fierce rebuff, and now they are also scared because the Darkest One has made it clear what will happen if they poke around in an illusory way.

                    I don't understand why we need to occupy Ukraine. Personally, it seems to me that it will be something like in Georgia. Only faster and more efficient. Ammunition and equipment depots will be destroyed. And then ours will leave. With such an outpost as the LPR as a part of Ukraine, no occupation is needed.
                    After the defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the mood of even the most advanced will be extremely depressed. As a result, they will begin to squabble with each other even more violently. And LDNR against the background of this will be just an island of tranquility.

                    ************************************************
                    What kind of "splinter" are you talking about? .. And in connection with what? ..

                    Russia has irrevocably left the "torch" since the time when the Soviet government implemented the GOELRO plan. Having created YOUR OWN, ABSOLUTELY INDEPENDENT from any external dependence, the most reliable BASIC energy in the WORLD - the FOUNDATION of any, even wash away the "advanced" economy. I emphasize, not a "market" or a "plan", namely, YOUR OWN, STABLE, PROFITABLE and SUFFICIENT in terms of "kilowatt x hour" ...

                    And the current, anti-Soviet Russia, this ABILITY OF ITS BASIC energy (I emphasize, it is the ABILITY), SELFLY, RELIABLY to produce a PROFITABLE "kilowatt x hour", FIRMLY preserved and, for the last decade, even DEVELOPES PLANELY.

                    Duc, what kind of "splinter" and in connection with what, once again "great sorrows"? ...

                    No "isolation" from the notorious "rest of the world" and no "sanctions" will ever take away this ABILITY from Russia and its economy.

                    And the ABILITY TO INDEPENDENTLY produce, in SUFFICIENT volumes, its own "kilowatt x hour" is a KEY to the fact that Russia, if necessary, will be able to independently develop and serially master any new technologies. Without any risk, to be "in the end", as many dream, "put on its knees" ... For, under the protection of a nuclear shield, the Russian "kilowatt x hour" is inviolable for attacks from outside.

                    Yes, this development will require a certain amount of time, time shifts "to the right" and a certain, temporary discomfort-deficiency at the household and industrial level. But this will not be a "question of survival", but a question of "discomfort" ...

                    But the ABILITY of the so-called. "Western democracies", in the context of a GLOBAL aggravation of the military and economic situation (and against the background of "green" environmental hysterics) STABLE to produce its "kilowatt x hour" without a CATASTROPHIC collapse of the standard of living and well-being of the average person for a LONG time, causes me very strong doubts.

    James Bush expresses doubts that Moscow is preparing to attack, since 92 troops gathered near the Ukrainian border are not enough to take over the country

    And why are they all talking about the occupation of Ukraine as the target of the attack?
    For example, as in the case of Georgia in 8.8.8 - did the Russian Federation occupy all of Georgia? Of course not. She simply destroyed the Georgian Armed Forces and went back.
    Quite a normal target.
    The same is with Ukraine, why should we seize, relatively speaking, Exactly or some other Carpathians? To gouge the armed forces, and break through a corridor to the Crimea, well, it is possible to occupy Odessa and Nikolaev in order to break through to Transnistria and reduce Ukraine's need for admirals to zero at the same time.
    Why do we need the occupation of all of Ukraine, then? :)

        We must wait for some reason from Ukraine. For example, if Zelensky launches an attack on the LPNR
        In this case, yes, it is necessary not only to destroy the APU, but also to get approximately what I suggested above.
        And the local population ... Something I did not hear crying for the people who were burned by the "local population" in Odessa.

            2. South Ossetia was also not recognized by the Russian Federation before Georgia decided to invade its own territory. This did not at all prevent the Russian troops from striking at Georgia in response and entering its sovereign territory. Which was absolutely the right decision.
            3. Because the Russian Federation did not sponsor Anti-Maidan, unlike the West, which openly admitted sponsoring the 2014 coup.
            4. Don't have to. most of the population does not care who rules. Food in the refrigerator is important to them. But, of course, the number of couch warriors will increase significantly. I do not exclude that there will be some local terrorists, well, OK. The usual thing is war.

                2. Okay, that is, Obama is to blame for the fact that Ukraine, sorry, pissed off the Crimea? :) Your homeland is being attacked, and you are listening to the orders of some negro from overseas? If this is the approach of Ukraine, then I am very sorry, but it will not live long.
                3. Do not confuse Russia's economic aid to Ukraine with 5 billion allocated entirely exclusively for the coup.
                4. I look at both Skabeeva and Gordon, and right now I'm sitting on the Censor. I hear everyone. Poroshenko was not chosen. OK. So what? Something has changed? Yes, nothing at all. The same people who plundered Ukraine continue to plunder it. It's like the "Factory" group - there have been hundreds of lineups changed, but in fact everything is the same :)
                And the presidential elections, well then. I can honestly say - I have always voted for Putin. Whoever doesn't like it, well, OK - their business. I cannot say that I am satisfied with everything, but in general the situation is much better than in the 90s.
                5. Once again: I say that we do not need to occupy all of Ukraine. And to concentrate on territories where Russia has much more support than, for example, in Rivne. :)

            "Shooting indiscriminately" is not about the war and not about the military. It's about anarchy. This means that it has nothing to do with the possible, forced use of its armed forces by Russia on the territory of the former united Ukraine engulfed in the civil war ...

            But to the anti-Russian quasi-humanitarian demagogy on this topic, it has a direct relationship ...

            And the possible losses of the civilian population, in the territories beyond the control of the Kiev coup d'état, just as a result of Russian military-peacekeeping actions will be much smaller. Than as a result of the military occupation of the territories of the republics of Novorosiya by the Kiev coup d'état as a result of the actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and militia units of these republics in a "one-on-one" format ...

            As for the possible losses of civilians in the "rest" of the territory of the former united Ukraine (from Odessa to Kiev or Ivano-Frankovsk, Lviv), their scale will be determined by the nature of military operations against the population and settlements of the republics of Novorossia ...

            For decisions on delivering strikes and conducting operations in these settlements "! Kiev" and other "headquarters" will be accepted. This means that it is these headquarters in their places of deployment (and reserve ones too) that will be destroyed along with "the rest of the Armed Forces." As well as all the existing potential of the wretched Ukrainian military-industrial complex. Until the stage of complete non-recovery, so to speak ... For the future ...

        But the fact that at its western borders, the Western "democratic" regimes of the next "waiting room" for those who like to "play war" will no longer be able to build, Moscow reliably guarantees ...

        Optimally, the line of dividing the zones of interests and control, separating Russia from the "democratic" decay, in this direction, should pass along such a "natural barrier" as the Dnieper ...

        And "include" these territories in its composition of Russia unnecessarily. Control over them and the solution of the issue of subsequent state ownership, and the republics of Novorossiya will provide. And Russia guarantees them military security and the possibility of economic development.

        I am more worried about the deposits of the local population in the Carpathians.
        It so happened that I have been living in Poland for 6 years and there are a lot of Ukrainians here. And I see a huge difference between those who came in large numbers from Odessa, Seva and Kiev with those who came from Ovruch, Lvov and Uzhgorod.
        These are two big differences :)
        The former are, in principle, more or less neutral towards Russians.
        The latter are much more intolerant.
        Therefore, I suspect that the occupation of the Carpathians is a war with the rebels for many years.
        Whereas Odessa-mother will be deeply indifferent. Well, not without excesses, of course :)

        Who cares about the deployment and movement of Russian troops across Russian territory? But with NATO, you are a little cunning: yes, this is an alliance, but armed forces are located on the territory of the Baltic States. from other countries... And we can even say more specifically - the United States. And they build bases there, gradually expanding.
        Tell me, is there any REAL threat to the Baltic countries to deploy US offensive weapons there?
        You have double standards: it is NATO, represented by the United States, that has approached our borders and is supplying the EU with its weapons. And it's pretty bad explaining why. That is why Lavrov is asking. We are moving our troops on our territory, why does NATO ask why and calls for "being transparent"? Why does NATO need to know about targets? Adding to this the concentration of NATO forces on our borders, the growing intelligence activity, a very interesting and not very reassuring conclusion emerges ...

    It’s probably good to ask questions, the prerequisites for which you create yourself and to which you know the answer. And then present what is happening to the Western man in the street as his next "great victory." But for some reason the American expert does not answer a simple question - how can this war end for Ukraine and Europe as a whole?

    Do not underestimate the Americans, they skillfully maneuver. Since 2014, when the defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was devastating and Putin's rating was huge, they methodically worked. As a result, the result: the Armed Forces of Ukraine are quite combat-ready, they cannot do with "vacationers" alone. It seemed that Putin's threats to the Ukrainian Armed Forces were unambiguous, but no one listens to him. Hysteria is being whipped up on the eve of the offensive on Donbass, I hope our "effective" government will not flinch and the issue of the primordial Russian lands called Ukraine will be resolved. The main thing is not to abandon the Russian people who live there and consider Russia their homeland, and there are many of them there. And let the rest ride for decades on their farms.

    There is a feeling that the authors of such articles for some reason deliberately whip up an atmosphere of fear and hostility among the population of Europe and the United States. One explanation is the attempts to divert public attention from the internal problems that are faced not only by Ukraine, but also by the West.

    Or else we have: everyone is happy with QR codes, inflation with double digits is just childish talk compared to Venezuela, we all dearly love the irreplaceable Vladimir Vladimirovich and believe in the wise course of the unanimously elected ruling party. And if anything, then our tanks are fast and we wake up the enemy on his own territory.
    Whether Europe and Ukraine are the same: the latter has gasoline Ai92 at a plus, and the poor Ukrainians are forced to change to new Tesla.

    James Bush, an expert on Russia from the Eurasian Group, expresses doubts that Moscow is preparing to attack, since the 92 troops gathered near the Ukrainian border are not enough to take over the country, whose population he for some reason called "fifty million."

    That is, the person did not even suggest that in order to occupy Ukraine, you first need to defeat its army - this is how he evaluates the Ukrainian Armed Forces :))

    And these numbers do not teach gene staffs in the academies - the situations are different:
    for example, Crimea was taken by such an insignificant number of military personnel in the presence of a Ukrainian military contingent of about 2014 troops in 17:
    According to statements made in an interview published on March 24 in the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper with the First Deputy Head of the Main Personnel Directorate of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Rear Admiral Pyotr Antipin, there were 22 servicemen and civilian personnel of former military units, institutions and organizations of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine in Crimea. ... Of these, about 17 thousand people were military personnel, of which more than 3,5 thousand officers, over 1700 - warrant officers and warrant officers and about 5800 - sergeants, foremen and privates under contract.

    There were too few among the Armed Forces of Ukraine willing to lay down their "forelocks" for the Crimea.

    I suppose not even a week of fighting will go by when the "boys" will scatter among the huts under the blows of the "Muscovites" - the Debaltsevo boiler has clearly shown the stability of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
    There, it takes longer to clean up the dobrobats and other nationalists, who together fled into the woods.
