The West urged not to give Ukraine “false hopes”

Independence monument in Kyiv. Archival photoMOSCOW, May 18.The interests of the West and Kyiv are not identical, while the rhetoric of Western countries about the full support of Ukraine can give it “false hope” and is fraught with serious consequences for the country, according to a Politico article. According to the authors of the material, University of Birmingham professor Patrick Porter, director of political affairs at the American think tank Defense Priorities Benjamin Friedman, and senior researcher at the Cato Institute Justin Logan, argue that the United States and its NATO allies should want exactly what Ukraine is doing – this is a “clear but dangerous policy”.Slutsky accused the United States of stopping Ukraine's negotiations with Russia “Such statements are fraught not only with the fact that they can drag us into a nuclear war. They create the danger that they will give Ukraine false hope and delay the settlement of the crisis. Our natural sympathy for Ukraine should not be confused with complete coincidence of interests,” they write. The escalation of the conflict serves the interests of Ukraine, and the NATO countries, prudently wary of Russia, are rightfully resisting it, resulting in a discrepancy between deeds and words in the West. As the authors point out, claims of complete convergence of interests could fuel “Ukrainians' dreams of total victory” and their excessive expectations. he was offered to suffer because of this, when there will be no support he was counting on,” experts say. At the same time, the conflict itself, as the authors note, was partly provoked by “some false, but tempting assurances” from Washington to Kyiv which gave the impression of a concurrence of interests. “In the course of this fatal 'flirtation', there were promises of '100%' support, empty hints about possible NATO membership and the establishment of a security partnership, backed by an increase in material and military assistance that was not guaranteed,” they emphasize. As a result, Ukraine, left without the protection of real commitments from the West, she became bolder to the point that she “took steps that hastened Russia's decisive action.” they will not argue that the interests of the West and Ukraine are not identical,” the authors conclude. Since February 24, Russia has been conducting a special military operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine. As Vladimir Putin stressed, its goal is “to protect people who have been subjected to abuse, genocide by the Kyiv regime for eight years.” According to the Ministry of Defense, the Russian military strikes only at military infrastructure and Ukrainian troops, and by the end of the main tasks of the first stage – significantly reduced the combat potential of Ukraine. The main goal of the department was the liberation of Donbass.Read the full text of the article on the InoSMI website >>The Americans were threatened “Armageddon” because of Biden's Ukrainian policy
