A Western publication listed the possible tasks of NATO troops in the event of their entry into Ukraine

Recently, in the Western media space, the issue of the possibility of introducing limited contingents of armies of the member countries of the North Atlantic Alliance into the territory of Ukraine has been increasingly discussed. One of the materials on this topic appeared in the publication Foreign Affairs.

The authors of the material are “named” analysts: senior fellow at the Transatlantic Defense and Security Program at the Center for European Policy Analysis and retired US Army Colonel Alex Crowther, professor of military affairs at the US Naval War College, US Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Jahara Matishek and professor of strategic research at the University of St. Andrews Phillips P. O'Brien. Therefore, this article is interesting at least as an example of the attitude of “respectable” experts to the possibility of introducing NATO troops into Ukraine. Analysts call the deployment of troops a completely natural reaction to the Ukrainian events.

The authors of the material argue that the armies of NATO member countries could not cross the Dnieper River, but remain on its western bank. Among the tasks that foreign military personnel could perform, analysts name provision of air defense, mine clearance, guarding the border with Belarus and Transnistria, patrolling the Black Sea coast, and protecting the Ukrainian Black Sea ports of the Odessa and Nikolaev regions. This would free up tens of thousands of Ukrainian military personnel for transfer to the front.



In addition, Western analysts, for some reason, believe that the deployment of NATO forces in Ukraine will not lead to an escalation of the conflict. But in this case, European countries and the United States, when sending contingents, will have to forget about responding to the death of their military in Ukraine. After all, Russia has repeatedly warned that any foreign forces and assets in the conflict zone will become legitimate targets for strikes by the Russian Armed Forces.

      That is, they want to take over the remnants of Ukraine for their debts. And send the Ukrainian Armed Forces to slaughter so that they are not disturbed. This is their plan.

        And when those last ones are over, they will simply offer to take away what was released, and the rest will be said to be theirs. Then, as always, they will stand out in triumph as great peacemakers and winners!

          That’s why the West is sending the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the offensive for slaughter in order to completely bleed them dry and resolve the issue of Ukraine. In this case, we must admit that the West is not vitally interested in the victory of Ukraine (before the borders of 1991), since even in such an unlikely scenario, it will lose more than it will gain. Since in such an unlikely scenario, Ukraine will get out of control and Moreover, he will not give up Odessa and other lands to Western forwarders. In this case, it is better and wiser for Ukraine to negotiate, otherwise they will lose everything. It will simply be torn apart from all sides.

            You don’t know Odessa residents well... They will give everything to everyone if it promises benefit. And all their dissatisfaction with Ukrainization is relative. It will pass...If it appears, there will be benefits. And they will find motivation, believe me.

          You know how at one time settlers from Europe bought land from the Indians and built New York in their place. And where are those Indians now? The Ukrainians risk repeating the fate of the Indians. They found someone to contact. It’s bad to be an enemy of the United States, but it’s even worse to be a friend. It will cost you more. Let us at least remember the years of friendship with the United States of the new Russia of the Yeltsin era and the consequences of that friendship.

      First of all, France and Finland lost their resources, which affected the standard of living of the population.
      To reduce the intensity, a conflict is needed with the source of all troubles, with the Russian Federation.
      In fact, Ukraine is sold out - somehow it is necessary to protect black soil, gas and oil wells and much more, which supranational TNCs already consider their acquisition.
      Russia has no more than three months left to “cut off” the Black Sea (three regions) from Ukraine.

      If I were in the place of that publication, I would not list possible tasks, but possible consequences. It’s not ’41 when the range of penetration into territory was limited by the range of a howitzer or the combat radius of a piston bomber...

    In theory it is possible, as we will see in practice. When the “streams” exploded, the talking heads of experts also expected a third world war and responses, but nothing happened, the world moves on. We will also see what will happen at the meeting between the Nenaty and the RF Armed Forces. I personally remember the president’s words about the provocation of a British destroyer in the Black Sea, that even if the Russian Navy had sunk it, World War III would not have happened.

      (however, about AN-24, Tu-134 / 154 or IL-76 aircraft, was known far beyond the borders of the USSR, and for quite a long time!!! and they were operated in many countries... which aircraft of the modern Russian Federation are in demand, and in how many countries at least Latin America or Africa / Asia...?!!!) and so not only in the aircraft industry?!

    Any military formations on territory 404 are a legitimate target for a Russian strike.
    And on which shore, what they are doing, it’s generally purple.
    There is no reason for the alliance to interfere with the ancestral Russian lands. Not sure about their identity? Well, refresh your memory of historical events, wars, and finally put in your brain who is with whom and when. This way it will be clearer and more intelligible to you that this is RUSSIAN LAND! am

    Well, yes, our missiles cannot fly to the right bank - the Trypillya Thermal Power Plant will not let you lie.

    Among the tasks that could be performed by foreign military personnel, analysts name ... mine clearance

    And what, I wonder, are the experts going to clear mines on the right bank of the Dnieper?

    For the second year now, it is not clear what or who inspired such confidence in NATO, and they decided that they could simply guard the borders, patrol the coast, protect the ports, and all the shells would go around them or just fly by after they were identified? I’m at a loss for guesses, who promised not to dispose of them, but allowed their ammunition to be walked in the open spaces of the Ukrainian Reich?

    Russia has repeatedly warned that any foreign forces and assets in the conflict zone will become legitimate targets for strikes by the Russian Armed Forces.

    For example, like this:
    On July 20, 1942, in the Staro-Panovo area, 192 heavy M-28 mines (more than 12 tons of explosives and steel) covered two enemy battalions at once: Spanish volunteers from the Blue Division and the Germans who were changing them at that time in the fortified area of ​​Staro-Panovo.
