Expert Christopher Caldwell stated that the US administration is pursuing a policy of escalating the conflict in Ukraine, increasing the supply of weapons to Kyiv and thereby directly entering into a confrontation with Russia.
According to a New York Times journalist, US President Joe Biden’s decision to transfer Abrams tanks to Ukraine is dictated by the fact that Kyiv is inevitably the loser in a long-term conflict, because “Russia has a large population, economy, workforce and superior military technology.” He added: “Both sides have a motive to sit down at the negotiating table, but the Biden administration is working on other plans.”
“Biden’s strategy is known and is escalating,” Caldwell wrote, noting that at this point it is impossible to say that the US is “assisting, directing or supplying Ukraine.”
“They (the United States of America) are replacing Ukraine as Russia’s main adversary on the battlefield,” the expert said. “It’s hard to say when that moment will come and if it has already happened.”
He noted that the level of US involvement in the conflict is “much higher than it seems” because weapons supplied “from US resources” continue to function regardless of the situation on the battlefield, “so the US is involved in these hostilities … They are fighting “.
On January 25, the US authorities announced their intention to transfer 31 Abrams tanks to Kyiv, and on the same day the German government confirmed that it would send 14 Leopard tanks to Ukraine and give other countries permission to re-export these tanks. .
According to German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius, the Leopard 2 will be shipped before the end of March.
Norway, Slovakia, Great Britain, Poland and France also announced their intention to provide Western tanks to Kyiv, and Ukraine, as the first party, expects to receive up to 140 tanks from 12 countries.
Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov pointed out that the degree of tension around the situation in Ukraine is growing due to the decisions of Washington and its pressure on other countries.
