The anti-Russian policy of the United States is suicidal both for the states and other countries of the West, former high-ranking French intelligence officer Eric Denese said in an interview published by the newspaper Atlantico on January 23.
Doctor of political science Denese commented on the escalation of the situation around Ukraine. In his opinion, the West is responsible for this crisis, as it did not react in any way to the overthrow of democratically elected Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich in 2014.
“And the West encouraged and supported this coup d’état, flouting the values and rules that it itself upholds around the world. Then the regime that settled in Kiev immediately started oppressing the Russian-speaking population of Donbass, which the Americans and Europeans turned a blind eye to,” the former French intelligence officer said.
Denese said that “Atlanticist Russophobia” is a way of existence for NATO and the United States, so the intensification of tensions around Ukraine is the work of the West. The Russian authorities’ tough stance on concessions in Ukraine has forced NATO and the US to the negotiating table.
“They seem to have belatedly realized that they cannot force Moscow to back down and that they will bear responsibility for a conflict from which they cannot emerge victorious,” Dr. Denese said.
Events surrounding the suspension of the North Stream-2 licensing process suggest that the US is trying to harm Russia economically and set it at variance with Europe.
“Everything suggests that the West, with its leader as represented by the US, seems to be approaching geopolitical suicide,” Denese concluded.
On January 24, a US State Department spokesman said that Russia could allegedly “create” a pretext for an attack on Ukraine.
On January 23, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitriy Kuleba said in an interview with Welt am Sonntag that the Ukrainian public was disappointed with Germany’s refusal to supply weapons to Ukraine. Ukrainians will remember this for decades and this will make him, as a foreign minister, “very sad.”
The supplies of German arms will not be enough for the partnership between Ukraine and Germany to flourish “and for people to have friendly and warm feelings towards each other.”
