Why is Russia accused of aggravating the situation in Donbass?
According to the newspaper, the White House has worked out two scenarios in case of aggravation of relations between Moscow and Kiev. According to the first option, the United States will help the Ukrainian side to strengthen its defenses by increasing the supply of military equipment, in particular anti-aircraft systems. This scenario also provides for sanctions against Russia.
The second plan envisages limiting military exercises in Europe to “reduce the risk of confrontation with Moscow.” In this scenario, the US administration intends to suspend military assistance to Ukraine.
