IF A WAR BETWEEN RUSSIA AND UKRAINE OVER THE SEA OF AZOV BREAKS OUT, THE WAR IN SYRIA WILL LOOK LIKE A TEA PARTY

The story of astronauts Nick Hague and Alexey Ovchinin returning to Earth in a bold and successful escape from a failed space mission was moving to be sure. Even as Russian intrigues swirl around every corner of Washington, some of the “best and brightest” of both countries have engaged in a joint high-tech effort to achieve the most honourable goal of exploring the scientific mysteries of space and Land. Leaders in Moscow and especially in Washington may want to study this example of Russian-American cooperation under pressure.

The sad reality is that this extremely crucial bilateral relationship is in a desperate situation, even worse than many might imagine. As the current president of EE. UU He feels condemned daily for being “pro-Russian”, the chances of conflict between the great powers in Syria and Ukraine have increased precipitously. When, in February 2018, a group of US special forces Killed a large number of Russian mercenaries in Syria, Moscow warned Washington “not to play with fire.” A few months later, US Javelin anti-tank missiles arrived. UU The volatile situation in Ukraine. The Obama administration had flatly refused to give Kiev such lethal help, knowing that the escalation of the conflict would benefit no one, least of all the Ukrainians.

However, Trump’s innumerable advisers have prevailed and have frustrated the president’s attempts to improve relations with the Kremlin. If the anonymous opinion article of September 5 regarding “internal resistance” to the president is accurate, then the total demolition of US-Russian relations seems to be a major impetus of this challenge to the president’s authority. Maybe these hawks will finally be satisfied when the Americans and the Russians are killing each other seriously. Hopefully, the bloodbath will stop before a nuclear weapons exchange.

Unfortunately, most Americans are too obsessed with the operation of Facebook and Twitter, discussed in relation to Russia with nauseating regularity in the mainstream press since 2016, to know what is really going on in US-Russian relations. Therefore, few Americans and almost no academics in international relations seem to be aware that US Army tanks and armoured vehicles. UU They have been deployed beyond the confines of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and directly into Georgia earlier this year, while the US Air Force aircraft. UU Airfield within Ukraine during the next month as part of Operation NATO Clear Sky.

Most US specialists in international relations have rejected the idea of Ukraine or Georgia joining NATO, a prudent choice given the risks. But it is clear that the US military forces are determined to operate in these countries, whatever the danger. There was a justified concern early in the summer of 2018 that if the Javelins caused significant Russian casualties in eastern Ukraine, then the Kremlin would again intervene decisively, as it did, for example, at the February Battle of Debaltseve. 2015. To a large extent, Russia obviously did. I do not want the Ukrainian crisis to explode during the World Cup. Now, things could be different and tensions increase in a disturbing way, especially in and around the Sea of Azov.

Signs of impending problems are evident everywhere. At the end of August, the rebel leader Alexander Zakharchenko was killed in a bomb explosion. As usual, Moscow and Kiev were blamed for the murder. To affirm the obvious, such murders barely augur well for permanent stabilization through a negotiated settlement. In September, the president of Ukraine was in America to speak at the United Nations. He visited Baltimore to take possession of two former cutters from the United States Coast Guard. While it is unlikely that these ships could tilt the military balance in the tense Black Sea area, come at a time when the Russian military press is hotly discussing Kiev’s intention to “take measures to increase its military presence in the Sea of Azov [мероприятий по усилению военного присутствия в Азовском море]”. It is hoped that Ukraine will have more luck operating the old cutters of the United States Coast Guard than the Philippines.

Washington seems to think that such “gifts” will help the morale of several beleaguered friends, but these symbolic steps also inevitably provoke the wrath of neighbouring great powers without providing any genuine deterrent power. In other words, such policies make good public relations stories, but little else. It is hoped that Ukraine will have more luck operating the old cutters of the United States Coast Guard than the Philippines. Washington seems to think that such “gifts” will help the morale of several beleaguered friends, but these symbolic steps also inevitably provoke the wrath of neighbouring great powers without providing any genuine deterrent power. In other words, such policies make good public relations stories, but little else. It is hoped that Ukraine will have more luck operating the old cutters of the United States Coast Guard than the Philippines. Washington seems to think that such “gifts” will help the morale of several beleaguered friends, but these symbolic steps also inevitably provoke the wrath of neighbouring great powers without providing any genuine deterrent power. In other words, such policies make good public relations stories, but little else.

But so that nobody calms down with this fight, they kill people every day in the fighting in eastern Ukraine and civilians suffer horribly. In addition, there is more than enough spy intrigue to establish the neighbour against the neighbour. About a week ago, another Ukrainian munitions dump caught fire under mysterious circumstances. It is in these volatile circumstances that the fighter aircraft of the United States (F-15) of the California National Guard has flown. It is true that the air base from which they operate is located west of Kiev, but a few hundred kilometres from the tense Sea of Azov. However, a Russian perspective holds that the NATO exercises in Western Ukraine “are connected to a different exercise carried out by the Ukrainian armed forces. . .

That article states that Russia is at “zero hour” and the subtitle states: “The United States and NATO are preparing Ukraine for a local war with Russia.” that the large-scale NATO war games involving forty-five thousand soldiers will take place in October and November 2018 in northern Norway.

If one sees Russia as a profoundly paranoid and relatively weak country (albeit with many good writers and composers), defence spending amounts to an insignificant sum against the NATO aggregate, these exercises seem ill-advised, to put it politely. New research in the World Politics magazine confirms what we all suspected long ago: the great powers are especially prone to undertake aggression after suffering significant humiliation. Performing important NATO military exercises along the sensitive borders of Russia and in highly unstable areas of the former Soviet Union is the opposite of prudent moderation.
