DISINFO: The West is urging Zelensky to go to war in Donbas
The West is urging Zelensky to go to war in Donbas. NATO is preparing Zelensky for war in the Donbass. But Zelensky is very afraid that Russia will interfere and severely damage him.
The only thing keeping Zelensky from war so far is fear of Russia's determination to respond asymmetrically despite all NATO's threats.
What is happening now is not a NATO attempt to protect Ukraine from a Russian invasion - it is a Russian attempt to protect the Donbas from Zelensky's military adventure.
Since late October 2021, Russia has deployed more than 100,000 troops, along the borders of Ukraine, as well as certain specialised military units, electronic warfare systems and heavy-armoured vehicles. This has been proven by satellite images and intelligence from the US, Ukraine and NATO, among other countries and institutions.
Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity continue to be violated by acts of aggression by Russian armed forces since February 2014.
The European Union has stated that it will be standing firmly and decisively with Ukraine in front of any attempt to undermine its territorial integrity and sovereignty and has warned of severe political consequences and a high political and economic cost for Russia if it proceeds with further aggressive actions. This has been recently reaffirmed by High Representative Josep Borrell noting “there is no security in Europe without the security of Ukraine.”
