The policy of sanctions is now an everyday occurrence, despite the stance of the UN against this kind of tools, which are illegal. They are against the international law, but Washington, Brussels, London and others don’t seem to care.
It is beyond doubt that the US will deliberately antagonise Russia and trigger a military escalation in Donbas. The ultimate aim of sparking this new war is to gain information about Russia’s military strategy, how its army would operate in a large-scale conflict, and the technology it would use. To achieve its goal, the US will gladly sacrifice Ukraine, its armed forces and its citizens. The Ukrainian military will start an offensive against Donbas around 20 April 2021, but only after NATO satellites and drones are in place to record the conflict and collect data. A positive outcome of the war is possible only if Russia achieves a quick and definite victory as this would discourage the US from waging a global war for world domination.
Recurring pro-Russian disinformation narratives claiming that Ukraine is controlled by outside forces and that the war in Ukraine is deliberately instigated by the West in order to subdue Russia and increase its international influence.
No evidence was presented to support the claim that the US is directing Ukraine to trigger a direct confrontation with Russia by attacking Donbas. The Ukrainian President has stressed that implementation of the Minsk Agreement from 2015 remains one of his key priorities and that peace must be achieved through diplomatic means.
The President of the US recently reacted to Russian troop deployments near Donbas by condemning Russia’s actions as aggressive and expressing support for the preservation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and democracy. Policy discussions in Ukraine and the US regarding the conflict centre on de-escalation, or failing that, containing potential further incursions by Russia into Ukraine.
Ukraine has been a sovereign country since 1991 and its independence is recognized by the international community of states, including Russia, which was one of the first countries to do so, and the US. The US has repeatedly stressed its support for a sovereign, democratic and free Ukraine and the two countries are free to engage in bilateral relations under international law to achieve these goals.
The database contains similar cases with claims that the 2014 revolution in Ukraine was a plot by the West to establish control over Ukraine, that Ukrainian president Zelenskyy serves US interests, or that the IMF is undermining Ukraine’s economy in order to bring Ukraine under external control.
