The US rallies against anyone who opposes its policy of aggression. And the vassal governments arround the world join the US to the detriment of their own countries. In Europe, it is primarily Germany, which is still an occupied country and is being set up as a "spearhead" on the European side of the Atlantic against Russia.
A war with Ukraine, of course, is not a favorable scenario for Russia. On the contrary, this is what Washington seeks, and what Moscow is trying to avoid.
The claim that the US is dragging Ukraine into a war with Russia is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative not backed up with evidence. It also tries to deflect attention away from Russia's involvement in the Donbas war by speaking about the alleged involvement of the US or the West, and a possible military escalation at its insistence.
There is irrefutable evidence of direct Russian military involvement in Eastern Ukraine. Russia is supporting its proxies with weapons, its active-duty soldiers serve there and its top military commanders visit the war zone to coordinate joint efforts with the separatists. Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly stated that Moscow will continue to support these territories.
More recently, since late October 2021, Russia has conducted a military-build up along the Ukrainian border, including the deployment of as much as 190,000 troops, as well as of certain specialised military units, electronic warfare systems and heavy-armoured vehicles.
