NI: the U.S. has the opportunity "on the porch" Russia to start a war, which is not ready
Individuals who consider the Russian Federation as the undisputed cause of the conflict in Ukraine, resulting in their arguments, forget certain facts, says American political Scientist Rajan Menon in his article, in which He criticizes Still discussing the idea of possible arms supplies to Ukraine.

Expert, the discussion about the Ukrainian conflict And the possible supply of weapons to Kiev broke people into two camps.

Adherents of one of them consider that the Russian Federation is responsible for everything that has been in Ukraine Since February 2014, when in this country there was a coup And leader Viktor Yanukovych was overthrown.

Further Menon challenges the majority of the arguments of the supporters of this point of view. For example, He writes, They argue that the Russian Federation has the opportunity to be "unsettled" possible integration of Ukraine into the European Union, as It is only an economic Union, and not the Alliance.

However, According to the American expert, They forget about the fact that the EU And there is a military element in the form of So-called Common policy on security And defence of the EU (CSDP), as well as the fact that the composition of the EU is almost identical To NATO.

Another argument resorted to by the citizens, who consider the Russian Federation the undisputed originator of the Ukrainian fall, is that NATO has " no plans to take Ukraine into its ranks.

However, in the early 90's, chances Bulgaria, Romania And the Baltic States to join the Alliance, too, seemed distant. Now all these countries are members of NATO. In addition, adds Menon, the possible membership of Ukraine in the Alliance were discussed in the times of Leonid Kuchma's presidency.

the specialist acknowledged that supporters of the "other side" in the discussion on the issue of the Ukrainian conflict also often exaggerate the situation, arguing, for example, about the Nazis in Ukraine.

From the position Menon, there are not so many, And weapons to Ukraine not to send for them, and for several other reasons.

American analyst lists these reasons. First, proponents of sending arms to Kiev to the US And Thus did not explain what specific goals They want to achieve by such actions. They are also not ready to explain than It is With non-functional army, And how to make so that the weapon doesn't fall into the wrong hands.

Second, the Adherents of this scenario in the U.S. capital, accusing all of the Russian Federation, argue that the weapons " will force Putin to change his mind ", However, According to Menon, the Russian side in case of sending weapons to Ukraine could " increase support for the insurgents. This development, From the perspective of the expert, maybe because Ukraine to the Russian Federation is much more important than for the US. In the end Washington will be involved in the war "on the porch" from Russia.

Thirdly, the statements of the proponents of sending arms to Ukraine about the fact, because It must be done in the name of international norms, human rights, And for protection of the world order established after the cold war, are nothing more than " rhetoric ". Menon says his opinion: Ukraine, of course, can of self-defence And self-determination, But such a question does not imply, as This law was bound provided by American weapons.

The analyst mentions the words of Senator John McCain, one of the staunchest advocates of sending weapons to Ukraine first declared that Kiev is not requested "military presence" only "means to defend themselves. "" of course, no reasonable Ukrainian leader would not ask nor American arms nor the American troops. It would have been a guarantee that Ukraine will not receive neither the one nor the other " - explains the expert.

Speaking about the third reason, He emphasizes that most American advocates of arming Ukraine resorted to the problems of moral values, duty, "sacred principles" And the desire to preserve the world order, which Russia, as if it breaks.

According to Menon, these people observed " more than a little amnesia." He recalled how after the terrorist attacks of September eleven 2001, the West as if for the sake of his state security was compromised by some of these principles: for example, by waging preventive war, use of torture And drones attacks, And all This without any proper reason.

so, do the findings of an American expert, an attempt to justify sending weapons to Ukraine for moral reasons - It's more than just " slight whiff of hypocrisy ".

in other parts of the world It did not go unnoticed, And that, According to Menon, one of the reasons that Russia Thus has not become a " pariah ", but Western politicians And the Newspapers claim the opposite.

at the moment the situation in Ukraine has stalled, says an American expert. And military solution to the Ukrainian conflict cannot be solved, since in this case the situation will be Even more dangerous And uncontrollable, concludes Menon.
