NATO plans to deploy troops And equipment in Eastern Ukraine have no analogues in the history of the cold war, writes Executive editor of the American division with the agreement of the East - West James Carden V.
"The NATO defence Ministers meeting in Brussels before the week is rapidly rushed into a new, potentially more dangerous cold war With Russia, taking the unprecedented decision to place people And equipment directly at the Western border of Russia ", - he emphasizes.
From the perspective of Cardin, the Alliance "tirelessly" over And over again attempts to undermine the Minsk agreement. The analyst has no doubt: NATO initiative will only worsen the Ukrainian crisis.
One example of this is anti-Russian rhetoric of the United States. For example, Cardin reminded about the words of U.S. Secretary of defense Ashton Carter about the "detrimental effect" of Vladimir Putin in Europe. John Sidney McCain, Carden writes, " how often ", went Even further, calling the Minsk consensus " fiction ".
Cardin also said that "unprecedented" in historical terms, the steps NATO anticipate major General teachings of Commonwealth countries since the end of the cold war. Even more dangerous this situation makes statements about nuclear weapons on both sides, continues the expert.
And all this, According to Carter, "masks" the inconvenient fact that the main, though not only, violators of the Minsk agreements are the customers of the USA in Kiev ".
