Russia quite clearly articulated their desires in the situation around Ukraine, for this reason will defend them until the end. At the same time, the Kiev authorities do not follow signed by them to the Minsk agreements, and the US support them in this. In the end it won't help stabilize the situation in southeastern Ukraine, an expert in matters of foreign policy and the head of the new York office of the Institute of democracy and cooperation Andranik Migranyan. About it in The National Interest.
the expert is sure that consistently defending its position, Russia will be able to deflect the course of events and the U.S. will have to change its position.
"If you firmly and decisively have plans not to yield, ultimately, America will change its position. This was the question on Vietnam, Iraq, Libya, and now in Ukraine, " he said.
The development of the fall in Ukraine, from the perspective of Mihranian, acquired such forms because of the mistakes of the Kiev authorities and passivity of the American leadership.
"most importantly, he harshly attacked the Government of Ukraine for the fact that it is not pursuing reforms in the country, as reported in the Minsk agreements - and even tells its citizens that was not going to carry out these reforms," - said the publication.
However, According to the analyst, Moscow is trying to use its influence on rebels in Eastern Ukraine to repay the conflict, and at the same time, Washington is such pressure on the Ukrainian government has not.
in General, Mihranyan a fairly pessimistic view of the development of the Ukrainian fall.
"The Ukrainian government faced a dilemma: If it will continue the war, then, apparently, will be non-stop to take a beating, but the world is unlikely to help stability," noted in the text.
in addition, Mihranyan rejected criticism of Russia against " the interests to restore the Soviet Union ", similar goals, says the specialist, the capital of Russia no.
"the main and long-standing Russian goal is the development of a new Commonwealth for the maintenance of security in the European Union, in which one of the guarantors will be NATO and the other Russia. Unfortunately, Washington is no one as a partner, " the analyst believes.
Andranik Migranyan First acted with political predictions, which were embodied in reality. So, he warned about the fact that the policy of "reset" of relations with Russia, announced by the administration of Barack Hussein Obama, will lead To escalation of tension.
