The Supreme Commander of the United Forces in Europe is confident that the United States should stop looking back at Russia, restraining itself in matters of military assistance to Ukraine.
According to Ukrinform, the Supreme Commander of the United Forces in Europe, American General Philip Breedlove, said that if the United States had decided to provide Ukraine with Javelin ATGMs in the first two weeks after the outbreak of the war in Donbass, the situation would have developed quite differently.
“The general believes that the US should stop looking back at Russia, restraining itself in matters of military assistance to Ukraine, including lethal weapons. According to him, the States have taken a position of self-containment since the beginning of the “Russian aggression” against Georgia in 2008. Washington did not want to “provoke Russia”, but this plan did not work, since, according to Breedlove, it is the Russian Federation that is the provocateur”, – the message says.
Breedlove also noted that it is not in the interests of the United States to stir up the war. In his opinion, Washington should be proactive in supporting Ukraine.
That is, not wanting to independently get involved in a confrontation with Moscow, the general is ready to help Kiev to fight with Russia until the last Ukrainian.Lithuania is dissatisfied with the “insufficient” intensity of the struggle with Russia
