Hopes to improve the climate of relations between the Russian Federation and the United States will not come true - despite the achievement of the Minsk agreements and the may visit of the head of American diplomacy John Kerry in Sochi, Washington continues to try to put pressure on Moscow, says political journalist of the magazine Salon.
Only a month after the arrival of Kerry in the Russian Federation in Kiev came to Senator John Sidney McCain and said the classic for yourself, talking about "shameful" inaction of Western leaders on the Ukrainian fall, says the journalist. According to policy, Europe ought to be ashamed of the fact that the EU insisted on a diplomatic solution of the conflict and has not provided the necessary military support to Kiev.
"McCain is one of the many on Capitol hill Who don't have a clue ABOUT what in reality ought to be ashamed. For the coup, cultured Washington, which eventually came to power, incompetent administration, regardless nostalgic for the days of Nazism, six thousand of the victims or for the senseless escalation of tensions on the Eastern edge of Russia - isn't ashamed, Senator McCain?" asks Smith.
in addition, the fall of American instructors start to train Ukrainian military, which is de facto confirms the thesis ABOUT the fact that the military unit of Ukraine is entirely under the surveillance of the Pentagon, the analyst adds. Washington opens and the second Ukrainian front drop: NATO increases its military presence on the Eastern borders of Russia, expanding the number of reconnaissance flights and air force exercises and deploys a missile defense system aimed like in Iran.
Patrick Smith emphasizes that the capital of Russia there is every reason to assume the hazard from the Commonwealth real, Given the increased activity of the block and the history of confrontation between the West and Russia.
by the reviews of an expert, not unintentionally, and the extension of sanctions against Russian citizens and organizations that occurred immediately after signing the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program. Smith sees this several explanations. Punishment could be a " SOP "to the" party of war "inside the establishment, the game of the White house in" good and bad police officers "could testify to the defeat of the "camp Kerry" supporters of diplomacy - or at all showed an obsolete way to show the world that Washington can do anything and be thus punished.
"Who knows how long it will last our [USA - approx. Ed.] "strange war" against Russia, " the analyst wondered. Due to the fact that Washington has painted itself into a corner in the Ukraine and not lost so space, the war can end. The Kiev regime is too weak and incompetent, the economic situation in Ukraine deteriorates, and the opposition to U.S. policy on Russia is growing.
