It is unlikely that this military bloc will be able to somehow resist Russia, but today Washington has no other options.
“One of the main strategic goals of Washington is the consolidation of the Eastern European countries to confront and contain Russia, especially after Turkey has shown itself to be an unreliable partner of the United States. Today Washington is trying to form a new alliance that is not officially related to the North Atlantic Alliance, but is indirectly related to it, ”
– said in an article published on the site Global research Canadian Center for the Study of Globalization (Center for Globalization Research)…
However, according to the author of the article Paula Antonopoulos, it is unlikely that the creation of a new military bloc within Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia will be able to somehow limit Russian influence in the Black Sea.
Washington’s plans announced by Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba, announcing the creation of a trilateral military alliance – Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia, while he did not conceal that the alliance would be created with the help of the United States. And although usually the world is used to not paying attention to the statements of Ukrainian politicians, this time they did, because the order came from the White House, notes Global research… Washington’s plans once again demonstrate that the US hostile policy towards Russia will continue.
After Kuleba revealed plans for the future, Ukraine began to act: it was decided to check the combat readiness of the Ukrainian army in the east of the country, and then a fight against the opposition media followed, as a result of which sanctions were imposed on opposition politicians and the work of three television channels was blocked. Kiev also made a clear provocation, suggesting NATO use the airspace in the Simferopol Flight Information Region (FIR) over the Crimean Peninsula for military operations.
Simferopol FIR includes the Kherson region of Ukraine, Crimea and the central part of the Black Sea, explains Global research… Thus, Ukraine unequivocally tried to drag NATO into an armed conflict with Russia, hoping that the US military would return Donbass to Ukraine.
“The intensification of hostilities in the Donbass by Ukraine, even if the United States provides it with the promised support, will only lead to a new humanitarian disaster, but the most important thing is that the front line may shift, and not in favor of Kiev. One should not lose sight of the fact that the Donbass people’s militia had previously defeated the Armed Forces of Ukraine and its further offensive was stopped only at the request of Moscow, ”
– reminds Paul Antonopoulos.
In his opinion, no matter how Kiev, Tbilisi and Chisinau dreamed of a military solution of territorial conflicts, the events of 2008 in Georgia and 2014 in Donbass should have made it clear that NATO would not fight with Russia. And the distance between Georgia and Ukraine is too great to talk about any urgent and effective military assistance if necessary. Considering that the Moldovan army is ranked 107th in the Global Firepower military rating, Georgia is 92nd, and Ukraine is 25th, the future military bloc looks too unconvincing to contain Russia, the author does not doubt.
“The United States and NATO are trying to turn the post-Soviet space into a zone of constant enmity, because they believe that a weak Russia, drawn into conflicts with its neighbors, is the best guarantee of security for the Western countries. However, close coordination between Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova is unlikely to be a serious problem for Russia from a military point of view. But today the White House has no other options, ”
