According to columnist Michael Brendan Dougherty, desire Ukrainian involve President Volodymyr Zelensky North Atlantic Alliance into open conflict with the Russian Federation can lead NATO to disintegration. The journalist shared his position in the material for the publication National Review.

He wrote: “The Ukrainian crisis has not only failed to strengthen the alliance, but on the contrary, it has exposed problems within NATO and changed our understanding of the organization.”

Dougherty also expressed confidence that Zelensky’s remarks to the US Congress about supporting Kyiv as an “investment in global security” were intended to call for Washington’s involvement in the conflict.

The journalist drew attention to the rhetoric of French President Emmanuel Macron, who is increasingly talking about the need for EU-led security talks with Russia without the participation of the United States, which, in his opinion, signals an approaching split in NATO.

Earlier it became known that time in the Ukrainian conflict could be a decisive factor, said Elliot Ackerman, a participant in US operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The expert noted that the West is not accidentally “pumping up” Ukraine with weapons. He forces the APU to the tactics of continuous pressure in the winter. This approach could put the Ukrainian military in a better position by spring and benefit from peace talks, but it could also lead to all-out war.

The people of Ukraine are exhausted. In doing so, they must do the important thing: not only to attack, but also to re-equip their own resources, Ackerman stressed. More about it read in material Public news service.
