On the eve of the first official meeting of the heads of Ukraine and the United States, the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Andriy paruby said about possible deliveries to the Republic of lethal American weapons and the placement of it military bases “leader of the free world”. In these circumstances, Russia will do, “MK” has found out from the experts.
According to the Chairman of the Ukrainian Parliament cooperation in the military field with the United States could begin shortly. In addition to the armament of the Ukrainian army and the strengthening of its American units the agreement also includes the special operations and joint scientific and technical developments. Given that such a loud statement was made just before the meeting of Poroshenko and Donald trump, probably the heads of state will discuss the issue in Washington. Moreover, on his page in the social network, the Ukrainian leader also announced a meeting with Secretary of defense James Mattis.
However, the topic is about the supply of American lethal weapons to Ukraine is not new. Andriy Parubiy in 2015 have discussed this issue with the former owner of the White House Barack Obama. However they managed to agree only on the supply protivoaritmicheskih radars, armored vehicles and other military equipment, already do not need the Americans.
Meanwhile, until July 14, the Verkhovna Rada is going to pass a law to abolish the ATO and the introduction in the Donbass martial law. After all the powers against the DNI and LC must go from the SBU to the Ministry of defense of Ukraine. In particular, the Agency will be able to call in the army reserve officers, to develop a new law on mobilization, and most importantly — to conduct substantive negotiations with the United States on the supply of Kiev the required list of lethal weapons and generally prepare for the force scenario of the return of control over the border with Russia.
The bill, which he didn’t waste it appeared before the meeting of Petro Poroshenko and Donald trump in Washington. Actually there is a bargain on the settlement of the conflict. The introduction of the concept of “the liberation of territories occupied by Russia” eliminates the Minsk scenario the “reunification” of the region with Amnesty, elections and the special status of Donbass, including its own local government and security forces.
However, in the next three months none of the parties to the conflict did not foresee active hostilities, and then nobody comes. In this case, the polygon near Lviv APU preparing a whole new battalions under the leadership of hundreds of trainers from USA, Canada and EU countries. In turn, exemplary according to Ukrainian standards and is prohibited in the Russian battalion “Azov” builds antilanding defense of the coast of the Azov sea.
If the war be renewed, it is likely not in 2017 but in 2018, which Ukraine will have an election. Poroshenko will want to be re-elected for a second term, and this, ideally, he needs to return to Donetsk and Lugansk in the Republic.
Russia will take in the case of open support for US military operations of Ukraine in the Donbass, “MK” has found out from the experts:
Igor Korotchenko, chief editor of the magazine “national defense”:
Washington is well aware that the Poroshenko regime is not capable, therefore, the administration trump has recently stopped funding it grant military aid, the more there will be no placement of military facilities or the deployment of army reserves. In the United States understands that otherwise, they cross the red line and the response of Russia will return the world during the Cuban missile crisis. In the current situation, Kiev can only rely on joint exercises and some advice until the training of Ukrainian servicemen. Parubiy just wishful thinking, no one in favor of him not going to pour gasoline on the fire.
Victor MURAKHOVSKI, chief editor of the magazine “Arsenal of the Fatherland”:
Being a military expert, I find it hard to comment on the news from the insane asylum. I am sure that USA will not deploy its troops in Ukraine, and Moscow, in turn, will not be involved in the arms race.
