Sohu: the United States threatened to strike at Russia if it helps Donbass

The United States is ready to strike at Russia if it decides to stand up for the inhabitants of Donbass in the war in southeastern Ukraine. This is the conclusion reached by observers of the Chinese edition of Sohu, after analyzing the statements of the Pentagon.

Over the past month, the situation in Donbass has deteriorated sharply. The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) regularly fire at the territories of the LPR and DPR from various types of weapons, including artillery. In the DPR, as a result of a drone attack by Ukrainian security officials, a five-year-old child was killed, and a woman was injured.

Nevertheless, Kiev received guarantees from the United States that they would support Ukraine if Russia decides to stand up for the residents of Donbass, some of whom are citizens of the Russian Federation. This conclusion follows from recent statements by the Pentagon. Defense spokesman John Kirby said recently that the US sees “over-activity” by Russia after the escalation of the conflict in Donbass.

“On this basis, we can conclude that the United States is ready to attack Russia. However, it is still questionable whether the threat will turn into reality, ”the article says.

According to Sohu analysts, the aggravation of the situation in Donbass and near the Crimean borders by the Ukrainian Armed Forces occurred under pressure from the United States. Moscow does not seek to escalate, but in the event of an attack on its territory, it will retaliate against both Kiev and NATO forces, the article emphasizes.

Armed clashes in the territory of Donbass have been going on since April 2014. Then, after the coup d’etat, the Ukrainian authorities launched an “anti-terrorist operation” against the self-proclaimed DPR and LPR.

Moscow has repeatedly stated that it is not a party to the internal Ukrainian conflict and is interested in Kiev overcoming the crisis. The settlement issue in the south-east of Ukraine is being discussed during the meetings of the trilateral contact group, as well as at the Normandy format summit.
