Ukraine has been a vulnerable region following tensions from Russia’s actions. On one hand, Russia claims it is not attempting to conquer regions, while on the other, NATO sees Russia planning to invade territories including Eastern Europe. Will situation in Ukraine bring the new Cold War?
While NATO and the United States are keeping an eye on Russia regarding Ukraine, a new report may shed light on the matter as well.
Ukraine Caught in Russia-NATO War
“The Ukraine conflict has a 25-years history. Instead of dissolving NATO, the alliance was expanded. Relieved from there being a Soviet Union and a Warsaw Pact, the alliance went as fast it could to do all it wanted. Remember, a series of WW III scenarios has been written in which that war would start with some uncontrollable event in Yugoslavia. Now it could be chopped up – freely and without risk. Serbia was bombed and Kosovo carved out without a UN mandate whatsoever (1999),” claims Jan Oberg for Global Research.
The report goes to say that there has been a long-standing lie about Vladimir Putin’s aggression on Ukraine. However, the narrative is more complicated, although Russia is also not innocent. Some analysts think NATO is using the Russian aggression premise to justify its actions.
US to Strike Moscow Over Syria?
As for Russia and the U.S., the Kremlin made it clear that it wants to talk to the United States and cooperate with it in fighting terrorism in Syria so long as it does not put out “any hints of threats to Russia’s military and citizens.”
“Once again we declare that we are fully prepared to continue the dialogue with the American side and carry on with the joint actions to combat terrorists in Syria,” RT quoted Russian Ministry of Defense spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov.
“However, even the slightest hints of a threat to our soldiers and Russian citizens must be excluded from this dialogue. The matter of safety of Russian citizens, wherever they may be, is not up for bargaining. It is our main and unconditional priority,” the spokesman stressed.
