It is noted that the American military instructors focus on training the Ukrainian military in NATO defensive tactics. At the same time, as the aforementioned American edition writes, military instructors from other NATO countries working in Ukraine do not refuse “offensive” advice. In particular, we are talking about Canada and Lithuania.
The Pentagon says that the United States today "is doing everything so that Ukrainians can defend their territory without any escalation of the conflict in the Donbas." In fact, with such a statement, representatives of the Pentagon are trying to shift responsibility for the intensification of hostilities in southeastern Ukraine to representatives of the aforementioned Canada and Lithuania.
Meanwhile, people continue to die from sniper fire in the Donbass. Moreover, there is a tactic similar to that used by the Maidan provocateurs on Institutskaya and Grushevsky in Kiev in February 2014 of the year. The point is that snipers often open fire on both opposing sides, as a result of which mutual shelling begins, leading to a new stage of conflict escalation.
