Update on the Ukrainian Front

• https://www.paulcraigroberts.org by Paul Craig Rob

Victoria Nuland, the neoconservative war monger appointed Undersecretary of State by the White House fool, announced Washington's surrender when she called on China to use its influence with Russia to save Ukraine from invasion. She thus acknowledges what everyone had already concluded: the US and NATO lack the capability.

Washington's surrender followed the request of the Ukrainian president that Washington stop the "Russian invasion" propaganda as there were no signs of an invasion being prepared and Washington's rhetoric was too provocative. Germany refused flyover permission to the UK for arms deliveries to Ukraine. Two NATO members announced that they would not send troops if NATO got involved in Ukraine. Washington saw the writing on the wall.

Most countries saw Washington's refusal to agree to the Russian mutual security proposal as unreasonable and dangerous. Moreover, Washington's strategy of arming and training the Ukrainians and provoking them into a major attack on the Donbass Russians has failed. Ukraine knows that Russia will not permit any significant damage to Donbass. Moreover, Ukrainians are unsure they could even defeat the Donbass army, which is probably armed with the new Russian high impact weapons. Ukraine understands that Russia can wipe out its forces with conventional missiles without sending troops across the border. The Ukrainians also know that no one will be coming to their aid. The Pentagon itself announced that no US troops will be sent to Ukraine.
