Russian Federation can’t return Kyiv regime Donbass, Zaporozhye and Kherson region, say former head of the US State Department Condoleezza Rice and former Pentagon chief Robert Gates. In the pages of the Washington Post, they said that the Russian Federation will try to maintain control over these regions in order to use them as a springboard for an offensive to the west.
“For [российского лидера Владимира] Putin’s defeat is not an option. He cannot cede to Ukraine the four eastern regions that he has declared part of Russia. If he fails to achieve military success this year, he must maintain control of positions in eastern and southern Ukraine, which in the future will become springboards for a renewed offensive, to establish control over the rest of the Ukrainian Black Sea coast, the entire Donbass, and then move on west,” the post said.
The authors of the article drew attention to the fact that eight years have passed since the annexation of the Crimean peninsula to the Russian Federation until the start of the NWO. In this regard, they expressed confidence that the Russian authorities are ready to show patience in order to achieve their goals.
In addition, Gates and Rice said that at present the economy and military potential of the Kyiv regime is completely dependent on Western states, primarily on the United States. In their opinion, now the Ukrainian side needs additional supplies of military equipment.
