forum. Russia once again heard the sound of boots on the border of Ukraine, and the border of Ukraine is actually the border of Europe. Simple armed gestures or ready to launch a military offensive? In any case, it is important that Paris and Berlin continue to promote their Russia policy and extend it to Ukraine.
Although the new escalation of Donbass and the expansion of the conflict must be considered, France and Germany are contradictory. The initial crimes can be traced back to the “Normandy format” (France, Germany, Russia, Ukraine) and the Minsk agreement, which was painfully negotiated in February 2015.
Because of the “constructive ambiguity” that should have made progress despite all troubles, Russia has since been regarded as not an aggressor of Ukraine, but a third party, and should provide for the negotiation between Kiev and the paramilitary forces he has equipped convenient. Vladimir Poutine more or less put forward his own point of view.
Since then, Moscow has retained control of the Ukrainian border, and Ukraine has been asked to negotiate the status of the Donbass with Kremlin supporters before holding local elections. Therefore, Russia will be a Trojan horse destined to decompose in the Ukrainian country. Paris and Berlin hope to maintain the status quo of their territories and the decline of Kiev, and hope to resolve the conflict through neutral regulations. Alas, Russia violated this neutral law: after capturing Crimea, it launched a mixed war in Donbass. Then control extended to the Sea of Azov.
As for the expectations of turning this war into a “frozen conflict,” the failure of multiple ceasefires and the current situation have shown their vanity. In fact, the so-called “freeze” conflicts have only been suspended and postponed. They leave soon. Let us consider the recent Nagorno-Karabakh war fought by Moscow for control of the South Caucasus. At the same time strengthen control of Belarus.
