Economic sanctions and the arms of the Ukrainian military will never be able to achieve the goals that are able to implement diplomacy, they have the ability to only exacerbate the situation in the Donbass, writes.
The rift in relations between Russia and the West over the Ukrainian question is, reviews of publications, unforgivable diplomatic failure, to which the European Union has a direct relationship. Because not always true understanding of the intentions and actions of one another Russia and the West was involved in a severe since the cold war, the security crisis in the European Union. Now the prospects of a peaceful settlement look extremely far.
After the collapse of the USSR and European authorities America behaved in relations with Russia is not as it should be, since NATO expansion to the East and ending with the resolution of the United Nations on Libya, which only worsened the relations of the parties. Now the capital of Russia blame the support of the militias in the East of Ukraine, and the West actively discussing the possibility of supply lethal weapons to Kiev and going to tighten Economic sanctions against Russia, emphasizes The Independent.
However, such actions by Western governments only make things worse. The decision of the capital of the United States to provide military assistance to Ukraine will significantly increase the risk of direct armed confrontation between the U.S. and Russia. In addition, the Ukrainian military is not so qualified to apply Western weapons, and in the end, the weapon may be in the wrong hands. The most reliable approach of the West were not only military assistance to Kiev and anti-punishment, and the provision of more substantial financial support to Ukraine and active use of diplomacy in resolving the fall in the Donbass, reported in the publication.
"First, he (the West - approx. Ed.) obliged to allocate tens of billion of dollars to support the Ukrainian economy, and not the much smaller amounts that are pledged until the present moment. Secondly, the West is obliged to immediately intensify diplomacy. Despite all the failures of the last 2 decades, not to mention last year, she thought about the fact that diplomacy has been exhausted, is a terrible admission of the defeat, " writes The Independent.
for reviews of publications, one of the major figures who have the opportunity to contribute to the effective resolution of the Ukrainian fall, is the former President of the USSR Mikhail Gorbachev. At the same time he is not able to cope with this mission alone, Western diplomatic forces are also required to take an active part in stabilizing the situation in Ukraine.
