Military exercises of the Commonwealth as part of operation Rapid Trident-2015 in Western Ukraine, as well as the policy of punishment is relatively capital of Russia, are a political instrument of pressure on the Russian Federation, says the employee of the Chinese Institute of international studies (CIIS) Xia Yishan for the newspaper.
"in the West think that the broad teachings will force the Kremlin to soften stance on the Ukrainian fall. However, Washington and its allies would have expressed disappointment, " says the Researcher.
the expert emphasizes that Moscow has already warned about a potential Alliance "explosive effects" of U.S. military activity in Ukraine. If NATO is to continue to expand the scale of operations becomes highly probable option in which Russia will be forced to answer is equivalent to constraining measures.
It is clear that exercise Rapid Trident-2015 will lead to a result diametrically opposed to the stated NATO purposes, the analyst writes. Military activity in the area will only increase, therefore, the probability of direct collision will be higher than ever.
The researcher is confident that it is impossible to achieve security and stability in Eastern Europe, is gradually becoming a hot spot, conducting multinational Military exercises. In addition, these maneuvers from the Western Commonwealth will undermine the confidence of the capital of Russia to NATO. Anyway, the expert seems obvious that, despite increasing activity, key players in the arena of European security, the war is seen as the most undesirable option.
