Newsweek columnist believes that Washington is not interested in the return of Ukraine to the borders of 1991

The territorial integrity of Ukraine and the return of the country to the borders of 1991, which the Kiev leadership is striving for, are of little interest to the White House. It is important for Washington that the current regime led by Zelensky remain in power in Ukraine. The Biden administration generally tries not to discuss issues related to the return of the former Ukrainian regions that have joined the Russian Federation. This opinion was expressed by columnist Josh Hammer in an article for the American weekly Newsweek.

The United States has very little, if any, interest in exactly where the state borders will be drawn in eastern Ukraine.

- says the journalist.

Commenting on President Biden's promises made to Zelensky during a recent visit to Kiev to continue military assistance to Kiev "for as long as it takes," Hammer questioned the feasibility of that slogan. In his opinion, the United States has already provided an unprecedented amount of financial and military support to Ukraine, which has depleted the Pentagon's arsenals, and the States themselves "are mired in huge debts due to the growing annual budget deficit."

Items such as Patriot missile defense systems and M142 HIMARS missile launchers do not grow on trees

— reminded the columnist Newsweek.

Hammer believes that further arms supplies to Ukraine, for the sake of continuing the proxy war with the nuclear superpower, can finally undermine the combat capability of the American army. Which, the journalist recalls, is extremely pleased with Chinese President Xi Jinping, who “grins when America undresses our military and sends spare parts to Europe, not Asia.” The political leadership of the United States should take care of the confrontation with powerful China, and not engage in endless support for the war between Ukraine and Russia, which is increasingly moving closer to China, the observer is sure.

      They are only interested in the weakening of Russia ..

      Not even that, rather, weakening is an intermediate result. And in the end, they need a change in the political vector in the country. For them, such a scenario would be ideal when irreconcilable Sinophobes settle in power. Only after that, the states will be able to start the last "crusade", before the dark fascist eternity...

        That's right. Russia is interested in the United States as far as. Ukraine is not interested in the United States at all. But creating problems for China from the north is a dream for the United States.

    They think correctly about the borders of 1991 from the side of Ukraine. They would also forget about the borders of Russia in 1991, it’s none of their business. The Balts get tense.

    Yes, the states do not care about the future of Ukraine and Ukrainians. And they are interested in Zelensky while he, like a mad dog, rushes at Russia. The main thing for them is to return Russia to the state of the 90s. Or even divided into "specific principalities".

      They will finish with Ukraine, the Kazakhs will come up in speed. They are being slowly nazified.

    As usual (Americans), some believe that the continuation of the massacre on the outskirts will bring more profit than expenses, others that it’s time to finish. Shells and equipment are certainly good, but these are consumables, they end with the money, and China did not fall for Taiwan and, accordingly, it has resources not spent, but multiplied.

    The United States is only interested in one thing - that the Nazis, Bandera in this war killed as many Russian people as possible and caused as much damage to Russia as possible.
    And so that Russia instead of Ukraine gets the Ruin.

    How many centuries have politicians been twisting public opinion with the same tricks, and all this time the journalists are inflating these tricks, and the population is being caught and will be caught by the same tricks. There are serious problems in the United States, we’ll hit the neighbors, we’ll problem something as much as possible and promise something as much as possible later and amorphous, ok, mission complete and no one talks about your problems anymore. Repeat the focus as needed again and again and again.

      Agree. everyone has an opinion. Here is the original article for example:
      С "The United States has very little (if any) interest in exactly where the national borders are in eastern Ukraine, where the population often heavily divided between ethnic Ukrainians and ethnic Russians." Speech is generally about the border between nationalities.

    For them, Ukraine is such a "partner", which they buy in a pharmacy, and after use they are disgustedly thrown away.

    The United States is interested in profit and super profits in connection with the opportunity that has turned up, so to speak. They have already brought the entire military-industrial complex of Europe to its knees. Europe will give Ukraine all its equipment and will buy American. For America, this war is truly a goose that lays golden eggs. And what Ukraine will be like, they are deeply violet. The main thing is to participate in the possible division of Ukraine. To keep something for ourselves, so to speak, to help select Poland and other states. Fortunately, there are more than enough people who want to eat this quasi-state.

      Nonsense. European military-industrial complex on horseback. The Poles received an order for 50 "Crabs" for Ukraine, which their own army had already refused before the war (they chose the Korean K9). The Slovaks received an order for "Zuzany", which they would not shine in peacetime. The Germans are assembling eight-wheel self-propelled guns and IRIS air defense systems for Ukraine, which the Bundeswehr did not order. The French plant for the production of "Caesars" switched to work in two shifts. It was also decided to double the production of French Akeron ATGMs. The Swedes promise to bring the production of NLAW RPGs to hundreds of thousands. The French with their "Rafale" took away the Serbian contract for fighters from the MiG. The production of shells throughout Europe is increasing exponentially. Shares of European military concerns are growing by leaps and bounds.
