The United States has not yet decided on its position regarding the provision of military assistance to Ukraine in the event of the outbreak of hostilities in Crimea

The United States has not yet decided on its position on providing military assistance to Ukraine if the Armed Forces of Ukraine begin hostilities in Crimea. Washington does not have a clear answer to this question. Jake Sullivan, National Security Adviser to the President of the United States.

CNN correspondents asked Sullivan to give a specific answer to the question of supporting Ukraine in the event of hostilities in Crimea, if Zelensky decides on a forceful option to seize the peninsula. However, the representative of the US administration could not give an unequivocal answer to this question, saying that the task of the United States is to gain an advantage for the Ukrainian army on the battlefield in order to gain a stronger position in the negotiations that will certainly follow.



I can't give a "yes" or "no" answer to a question about a hypothetical development. At the moment, President Zelensky is focused on strengthening his position on the battlefield, strengthening his position at the negotiating table in the future. We want to help Ukraine make sure that successes on the battlefield can be used at the negotiating table (...)

Sullivan added.

Washington believes that it is too early to talk about hostilities in Crimea, now all the forces of Kyiv are concentrated in the Donbass, where the situation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is not as rosy as they are trying to file in Kiev.

Meanwhile, the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine states that the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will begin this spring in the southern direction. The Armed Forces of Ukraine will try to drive a wedge between Crimea and mainland Russia in order to occupy the peninsula. Zelensky simply has a manic desire to seize Crimea.

    He answered as honestly as possible, the current task set by Washington for the Armed Forces of Ukraine is to conduct a spring offensive. Do your homework - then the US will plan the next steps.

      The Foreign Office should probably tell you by now that we will not accept the takeover of Texas and California. And together with China, we are helping Mexico form an independent government in these regions.

          Texas is a separate country. And there, under many, they still keep the Confederate flag.
          But it's too early to help them separate. Now the attempts will be unsuccessful. That's when the rest of the United States plunge into the abyss of gang pogroms, then it's time. And it is moving towards this, there are a lot of dissatisfied people in the States, and more every year.

          Maybe now it is worth starting with the islands in the Pacific Ocean?
          Hawaiian, Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, Guam, Palmyra, Midway...
          All of them are taken illegally.

        Use weapons of mass destruction against a country that is not a party to the conflict? Clever. We have many bright heads. And then we sit thinking that we have everything in one place and fools at the top. Sometimes it's worth looking around and realizing - fools are everywhere. Your comment confirms this.

    What an interesting piece of garbage, in order to push through the dill, they believe that the Russian Federation needs at least a millionth group in the outskirts. And urgent mobilization. At the same time, in terms of success, it’s the suckers who are now defending themselves, that is, we use our forces better, it breaks the straw. But in order for the B/D suckers to start in Crimea, they only need three green whistles, and tomorrow they will finish off those surrounded near Sevastopol ...

    Empty shaking of air. Indefinite attitude in the US can only be in gender. Today a boy, tomorrow a girl, and then vice versa.

      Not at all, colleague! As for their gender, there is no doubt, and even they themselves. Remember, "it's quiet in the pond, but the crucian does not sleep"? But about the Crimea, and whether it's worth it to meddle there - big and heavy thoughts.

    It’s maniacal to get Crimea from the Americans. And all their stuffing about breaking through a corridor to Crimea, this is most likely a bluff for us, so that we keep more troops there for nothing, and dill could thereby recapture some of the new regions than strengthen its negotiating positions. And yes, the Russian Federation has a fad of shiza in the Crimea, which is what respected Western partners are trying to use, you know.

      This is not a fad, as you wrote. This is the loss of the Black Sea, the loss of the Sea of ​​Azov. the emergence of hostilities in the North Caucasus, the loss of the North Caucasus, the Krasnodar Territory, the Kuban, the collapse of Russia As a result of all this, the Emergence of Muscovy within the Stripped Moscow Region .. We are also losing St. .. This is the golden key to the division of Russia .. Only the blind and perhaps our chiefs do not understand this ...

    Zelensky simply has a manic desire to seize Crimea.

    And the "Wishlist" will not crack? I won’t say for the whole of Crimea, but if the Armed Forces of Ukraine try to crawl to Sevastopol, then everyone will fall under it. I think that here most of the population will go to the trenches. I myself will shake the old days: I won’t be able to run fast anymore, but I still remember how to handle the PKM or the PKK.

    they have long been determined. Namely, as long as there is meat left in Ukraine that can be caught on the street, wringing your hands and stuffing it into military equipment to fight against Russia, they will provide military assistance.
    War to the last Ukrainian whom the policemen of the Nazi Kyiv regime will be able to catch and send to the front.
    In my opinion, as long as Kyiv is not in ruins, the West will not reach it, therefore, if we want to end the war faster, then a Russian tactical nuclear strike on Kyiv is inevitable.

Putin and Shoigu will be lifted up on a pitchfork and thrown off from the wrath of the people. They will put in such a president...like Zhirinovsky who will sweep away all of Ukraine.

    Well, in order to start the seizure of the Crimea, you still need to get to it, as it were. At least before digging .. Also a problem so-so for the whole wassat unless ours, as a gesture of goodwill, give them a corridor. Given the events of the past year, not the most fantastic scenario by the way

    Yes, there (in the USA) wherever you spit, everything is illegally captured, everywhere there are samples of the mass genocide of the indigenous population.
    If only they were Jews...
    Already then there would be a howl in the world.
    And hegemony would crumble into pieces.

    To "shake" the United States, Will is needed.
    When the British openly supported the Chechen separatists, Zhirinovsky offered to supply weapons to the Irish patriots, fighters for independence.
    But the ghoul Yeltsin, tail between his legs, was afraid to go against the owners.

    Yeltsin's policy of obligingly parted buttocks, for the Hegemon, came back to haunt us with Bendera's Ukraine.

    If the Soviet-supported countries of South and Central America continued to "spoil the air" in the underbelly of the United States, the Americans would not even dare to think about Ukraine.
