NYT: The U.S. has crossed the line in Ukraine and is confronting Russia under the pretext of helping Kiev

U.S. involvement in the conflict in Ukraine looks less and less like mere assistance and more and more like Washington’s actions during the conflict in Yemen. Expert Bonnie Christian writes about this in The New York Times.

The American newspaper article says that Washington “crossed the line in Yemen, and what the U.S. did in Yemen is very similar to what it is doing in Ukraine.” The expert notes that the U.S. authorities’ support for Kiev has gone beyond the line. She stressed that Washington’s strong involvement is evidenced by the allocation of tens of billions of dollars to Ukraine, sending missile launchers to the AFU and transferring intelligence information to the Ukrainian General Staff.

The U.S. publication said the decision to supply Kiev with increasingly advanced weapons capable of striking deep into Russia reflected the West’s willingness to take the risk of an unintended escalation with Russia. Former U.S. permanent representative to NATO Ivo Daalder said the impasse in the conflict poses a stark choice for the U.S.: either continue its assistance to Ukraine and maintain a status quo fraught with devastating consequences, or cut off support and allow Moscow to succeed.

On June 20, the Ukrainian Armed Forces struck the Chernomorneftegaz drilling platforms north of Crimea. In all, the nationalists struck three times. The most powerful blow was dealt by the first platform, which had 12 people on it at the time. According to preliminary reports, five people were injured and seven more remain missing.

The strike could provoke a technogenic catastrophe capable of affecting Odessa, 71 kilometers away. The strike on the drilling platforms of Chernomorneftegaz was carried out by missiles made in the UK or the USA.

It has become known that a week before the strike on the Chernomorneftegaz drilling platforms the American commercial satellites Worldview-1, Worldview-2 and Worldview-3 were photographing the area where the drilling platforms were located. Accordingly, on June 11, 13 and 14 the images were received, which the Ukrainian armed forces used for their criminal purposes.
