Biden Regime Pouring Heavy Weapons into Ukraine for Warmaking
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
For over seven years, a permanent state of US-orchestrated war by Ukraine continues on Donbass along Russia’s border.
On Friday, Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Deputy Chief of Staff Eduard Basurin said the following:
Ukrainian conscripts “violated the Additional Measures to Strengthen the Ceasefire 32 times over the past week.”
Much the same goes on every week — on orders from Kiev’s higher authority in Washington.
According to the Donetsk News Agency, the Ukrainian aggressor “used 122 mm artillery, mortars of 120 mm and 82 mm caliber, anti-aircraft guns, grenade launchers, and small arms (against) 16 DPR townships” in the past week alone.
On July 22 last year, Donbass and Kiev agreed on “Additional Measures to Strengthen the Ceasefire.”
Like virtually always before, Ukraine unilaterally breached what its US-installed regime agreed to observe.
The Biden regime is pouring heavy and other weapons into Ukraine to maintain a permanent state war on nonbelligerent Donbass along Russia’s border.
According to interventionist Blinken following talks with pro-Western Ukrainian puppet president Zelensky in Kiev:
“We discussed in some detail the support that we are providing and will continue to provide to Ukraine to continue to strengthen its security, its defense (sic).”
Ignored by Blinken, other Biden regime officials, and their press agent media is that Ukraine’s only enemies are invented.
No real ones exist — not Russia, Donbass or any others.
US weapons supplied its ruling regime are solely for offense, not defense.
Blinken lied claiming otherwise.
He defied reality by claiming that thousands of Russian forces, weapons and military equipment “remain near Ukraine’s border (sic),” adding:
“Russia has the capacity — on fairly short notice — to take aggressive action if it so chooses (sic).”
Aggression is how the US-dominated West and its Ukrainian proxy forces operate — not Moscow against any other nations.
Blinken also said the Biden regime may supply Kiev with greater numbers of weapons, including so-called missile defense systems — for offense on Donbass he failed to explain.
The Pentagon is conducting “a very active consideration” of how to further aid Kiev’s aggression on Donbass — on the phony pretext of boosting its security.
Separately, Ukraine’s foreign minister Dmitry Kuleba said he discussed with Blinken what he called a “list” of weapons the Zelensky regime seeks from the US, adding:
“The path to NATO membership is absolutely on the table already.”
“NATO membership does not come in a day…We have to have a clear step-by-step road map of our accession to NATO. And this is where the US can help us.”
On Thursday, deputy White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the following:
“The Biden (regime) is committed to ensuring that NATO’s door remains open to aspirants when they are ready and able to meet the commitments and obligations of membership and contribute to security in the Euro-Atlantic area (sic).”
“The US supports Ukraine’s effort to advance rule of law reforms (sic) and economic growth…and its border fight against Russian aggression (sic).”
According to the New York Post, a White House transcript of Jean-Pierre’s remarks included editing out what does not reflect official Biden regime policy with regard to Ukraine joining NATO, the Post adding:
“The White House did not withdraw Jean-Pierre’s characterization of the US as being open to Ukraine possibly joining NATO, but the strike-through indicates that the answer is not currently a yeah.”
Because of NATO’s policy of collective defense, the US would be obligated to defend Ukraine if part of the bloc and claimed Russian forces were poised to invade or otherwise attack its territory.
Kiev could ask for NATO intervention on the phony claim of nonexistent Russian annexation of Crimea.
It could also ask for NATO help by falsely blaming the People’s Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk in Donbass for Kiev’s own aggression against the breakaway states, saying they’re supported by Moscow.
Vladimir Putin earlier warned of “consequences” if Ukraine was allowed to join NATO.
Calling the notion “aggressive (and) irresponsible,” he added:
“We will respond appropriately to such aggressive steps, which pose a direct threat to Russia.”
The US-dominated West is “trying to aggravate the situation, seeking to include, among others, Ukraine and Georgia in the orbit of the alliance.”
They “should think about the possible consequences of such an irresponsible policy.”
A Final Comment
According to First Deputy Chairman of Russia’s upper house Federation Council’s Foreign Affairs Committee Vladimir Dzhabarov on Thursday:
The US is “a destroyer, not a creator. Instead of suppressing attempts to militarize Ukraine against the nonexistent Russian threat,” it’s pushing the envelope for confrontation, adding:
Blinken should have told the Zelensky regime to uphold both Minsk conflict resolution agreements with Donbass.
He went the other way instead by “pushing Ukraine towards increasingly aggressive actions against our country.”
If Biden regime hardliners push US colonized Ukraine for conflict with Russia, world peace will hang in the balance.
