    Russia Ukrain war

    Russia Ukrain war

    This is the 12th month of the war between the two countries and during these months both the countries have suffered enormously but gained almost nothing though Russia claims to have occupied some districts that she claimed as belonging to her but the pro West policies of the president of Ukrain were not acceptable to Russia as her inclination towards EU and NATO  is regarded as harmful for Russia. The policies of the president of Ukrain have never been friendly towards Russia on her border vs. ties of friendship with NATO. In the light of history this type of neighbourliness has always been detrimental for the next door neighbor. How can Russia tolerate the presence of NATO on her border with whom she has had a long rivalry sprouting from the very beginning of the Soviet Union.

    The inclination of the president of Ukrain towards NATO and EU is an eyesore for Russia. There was a line of consensus on the ownership of certain districts of Ukrain  but she underestimated Russian designs and asked NATO  and EU to come to her help against Putin and ignited an already smouldering debris. The president of Ukrain had little idea of the situation that was about to visit his country owing to his shortsighted approach. A neighbor of gigantic magnitude along her border was ignored and hands of friendship was extended to befriend USA and her European Allies. The president of Ukrain should have the sense and sagacity to foresee the outcome of such a move and he should have read the pages of history of many other nations of the world who befriended USA and got nothing but damages and hypocratic policy shifts by the Pentagon. Those who have been patronized by  the US have never gained but have always been losers and this side of the issue must have been gauged by the advisors of the president of Ukrain but they were short sighted and challenged Putin and underestimated his designs, policies, statecraft, vision and sense of ‘loss’ after Gorbacheve dismembered the Soviet Union as a tool in the hands of CIA.

    The official visit of the president of Ukrain to Europe begging tanks, ammunition, aircrafts, missiles and other military equipment is a matter of humiliation for the Ukranian nation. It is the US that first instigated Ukrain to resist Russia  and then told her NATO  allies to contribute Arms and arsenal to Ukrain to fight Russia but look at the game just like a spectator. The way in which Germany was asked to agree  to allow Poland to send the few Leopard Tanks to be sent to Ukrain to be used against Russia was a matter of disgrace both for EU and NATO as the US herself had better tanks to give to Ukrain instead of asking Germany to allow a few. It means the US is using the members of NATO and EU against Russia and prolong the war and bring more devastation to Ukrain. The same type of policy had been adopted against Iraq during Bush administration. How naive for States and Heads of States and their advisors to fail to understand the cunning policies of the US in the light of history that is not very much away in the past; and the puppet like position of the members of EU to dance on the tune of the music sung by CIA. The West advises Ukrain to resist Russia and get damages of wide magnitude both in men and economy but enjoy the game and add fuel to the burning flames. They want Russia to be busy and use her large magazine and also get weaker economy, but Ukrain is on the verge of total annihilation.
