Western expert: Europe must be ready to send peacekeeping contingents to the regions of the post-Soviet space

The other day, 10 months have passed since the beginning of the special operation of the RF Armed Forces in Ukraine, and when the Ukrainian conflict will end is a big question. The authors of the Moldovan news portal Știri.md are wondering if this is Russian President Vladimir Putin's war against the neo-Nazi Zelensky regime, or if this is a clash between Russia and NATO, which continues its expansion to the east, getting close to the Russian borders.


Thomas de Waal, of the Carnegie Endowment, gave his answer to Moldovan reporters:

Of course, this is Putin's war, since he does not want Ukraine to leave the sphere of influence of the Russian world, which so zealously seeks to become part of the EU and the North Atlantic alliance. I would even add that for him [Putin] it is historical mission, since, in fact, this is a war between the older and younger generations in Russia itself, the first of which do not want the youth to fall under the influence of Western civilization.

At the same time, the British expert gave an assessment of the Ukrainian crisis, noting that it had an impact on the region itself. In his opinion, all countries have allegedly undermined the trust in Moscow as a reliable partner - including Yerevan. Especially, according to the expert, whose words fit into the general paradigm of Western propaganda, this is noticeable in relation to Georgia and Moldova, against which Russia "uses energy resources as weapons and economic blackmail.

In the case of the Republic of Moldova, this is also interference in its internal affairs.

Does the West not interfere in the internal affairs of Moldova?.. And some representatives of the country's top leadership do not have passports of citizens of Romania?..

Under these conditions, I believe that the EU should radically change its strategy, which consists in the formation of the European Union as a guarantor of national security for these states. Europe must be prepared for various scenarios, ranging from military support to sending peacekeeping contingents or OSCE observers to maintain peace and stability in these regions (post-Soviet space)

Thomas de Waal emphasized.

In conclusion, the author of studies on the countries of the former USSR (Republic of Moldova, Ukraine, Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan) reflects on the fact that Chisinau has problems with integration into the EU due to the unresolved issue of the status of Transnistria.

    Yes, in Russia, the top leadership of the country all have foreign passports, a law was passed on the impossibility of having dual citizenship, but every year its implementation is postponed, and those who do not have passports, Israel will accept those without passports without extradition, since they do not extradite Jews, so that they don’t do it, but here they speak for Moldova, tell us for ours ...

      Don't bother. Russia cannot "tear the navel" in resolving the issue of Ukraine until the military-industrial complex is restored to conduct more serious military operations. What is at the forefront, only partially has a modern filling. This is dictated by "slow progress", as well as an eye on NATO's inadequate attacks. Taking into account the collapse of the machine tool industry, reaching the real rails will take most of 2023. God forbid this time to endure, and before that, there will be no radical change if NATO does not find some kind of dirty option for intensification.

    Europe must also be ready to send peacekeeping contingents to the regions of the post-Soviet space

    Whatever you call it, intervention or occupation, but in any case it is “.Drang nah Osten” and the seizure of the territory of the former USSR, but not a peacekeeping mission. Until now, the states have not withdrawn the "peace killers" from Syria, and what they did for 20 years in Afghanistan defies the mind. Libya, Iraq, Yugoslavia is understood.

    The emphasis on the conflict of generations is interesting. In principle, there is sound grain in this thought. For generations born and brought up in the late Soviet and especially post-Soviet times, the value of such concepts as the motherland, people, kindness, etc. is really declining. The philosophy of this generation can be called "everyday Nietzscheanism." The current "young tribe" has gone even further in cosmopolitanism, plus telephone autism has been added.

    It's funny that Navalny focuses on teenagers as a target audience. And we can assume that it is the British who supervise Alyosha. Here, the newcomer, and the timely landing, and the contacts of Navalny's assistants with British "diplomats" - everything hints at a possible employer.

    Exactly what was to be expected. The absence of a clear signal from the authorities of the Russian Federation, namely, strikes by all available means of destruction on the logistics of Ukraine, at the first
    on the other hand, hints at the supply of weapons from the West, gave an understanding to the partners that the grandmaster "points out", and the "red lines" are bullshit for Solovyovism. And thus, NATO contingents will visit Ukraine. After that, the impact on the deep rear will become impossible. In the sense that an order of magnitude more ssykotnym. And impossible. After that... Well, you understand. "Capercaillie on spectacles" saved the West from fears of a possible escalation from Russia as a reaction to their actions.

      But all this - Western supplies, the mobilization of 404, the war with all of NATO ... could have been avoided. If you do not delay, but immediately begin to fight at full strength and cut off along the Odessa-Belarus line. Well, since it was inevitable, it would be possible to prepare!

        Strelkov often expounds good thoughts. And, with all due respect to him, those who, for their formation, do not require any superhuman knowledge and understanding. Another thing is funny, those who are trying to oppose him are slipping into petty showdowns with him personally, because in fact they cannot object to anything. The fact is that propagandists, due to their poor thinking, think that if Girkin is "blocked", then no one else will draw such conclusions. Because they, propagandists, are accustomed to living in someone else's mind, and do not understand that you can live your own.

Everything was decided by the forcible seizure of power in 93 and a further circus with democracy and the "universal approval" of the masses of this power of hucksters-zahrebetnikov.
