The editor-in-chief of the National Defense magazine Igor Korotchenko believes that Ukraine can bring the conflict in Donbass into a hot phase. In this case, Russia will have to protect its own citizens from the aggression of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. According to the expert, one of the possible scenarios of the confrontation between Moscow and Kiev will have sad consequences not only for the Ukrainian authorities, but also for the United States.
The Russian military will be able to declare the LPNR airspace a no-fly zone and with the help of the S-400 systems, so the American bombers that came to the aid of Ukraine will automatically be legally shot down. Also, the Russian military will be able to withdraw all military airfields and bases of the neighboring country in order to avoid further support from NATO.
“Therefore, at the Pentagon, let them carefully calculate the risks of scaling up the irresponsible policy they are pursuing. Since Russia will have the right to self-defense, ”Korotchenko stressed.
It is worth noting that the Ukrainian military officially used the Turkish Bayraktar drones and attacked the positions of the militia.
Earlier in NewInform: President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that the use of the Turkish Bayraktar drone by the Ukrainian army in Donbass does not indicate the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
