Democracy must be with the weapon in hand – so say the representatives of the lower house of Congress. All members unanimously approved the draft law “On support of stability and democracy in Ukraine.” This package of documents includes the supply to the ATO zone lethal weapons, as well as a number of other actions aimed at further escalation of relations with Russia.
In the US, all bills are three instances — the Lower house of Congress, the Top then requires the signature of the President of the United States. Still understanding on the issue of supply of lethal (i.e. lethal) weapons in the ATO zone between President Obama and Congress were not. But in the USA there are elections and how will the new President — absolutely not known.
The signing is now the lower chamber of Congress this law is nothing more than muscle-flexing another method of blackmail of Russia, – said Deputy Director of the CIS Institute Zharikhin Victor. – They say, behave and perform the Minsk agreement can be the upper house and sign. And you will not — sign. Not for nothing that such a decision is extended in time.
And then there’s US presidential election. And, as practice shows, the campaign promises of presidential candidates on foreign policy do not always coincide with their real actions then. And Donald trump, and Hillary Clinton is able to sign the bill. It is the policy of the United States – it is advantageous that in the East of Europe was a gaping unhealed war wound.
Military expert Igor Korotchenko gave his assessment of the situation:
– If you win, Clinton is a war. She is uniquely able to sign this bill. But such a step is the direct promotion of Ukraine for the resumption of the slaughter in the Donbas. And, consequently, further escalation of relations with Russia.
As for trump, it’s hard. In his election campaign he repeatedly stated desire to stabilize relations with our country. Perhaps becoming President of the United States, he will choose such a policy. But, maybe not. But Clinton is by far the war.
