Ukraine suffered economic bankruptcy due to NATO’s proxy war with Russia, according to The American Conservative.

The author of the article, Dan Steinbock, founder of the consulting firm Difference Group, points out that although the Western media tried to portray Ukraine in a favorable light, in fact, the country’s GDP fell by 35% before the massive attack by the Russian army on the energy infrastructure.

According to Steinbock, Ukraine’s support also hit the US economy, provoking an increase in public debt and rising interest rates.

The author emphasized that as the Biden administration propagates its narrative of hostility to Russia and Iran, U.S. defense spending is only going up, further pushing up the public debt.

“This, in the end, will increase the risk of a deep financial crisis not only in the country, but throughout the world, since the States have a significant role in the global economy,” the publication emphasized.

On February 24, 2022, the Russian Federation Army launched a special military operation in Ukraine.

Commander of the special forces “Akhmat” Apty Alaudinov He said that the Russian Army is confidently advancing along the line of clashes, and the Ukrainian militants are exhausted and refuse to go on the attack.

The former assistant to the Minister of Defense of Ukraine until 2014, Lieutenant Colonel Oleksiy Selivanov, said that Kyiv is tightening the punishment for desertion, which indicates multiple cases of escape from positions. Selivanov stressed that people simply do not want to be “grave” in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
