Economist Jeffrey Sachs announced two US provocations to unleash a war in Ukraine
The US presidential administration organized two provocations to unleash a war in Ukraine. This was pointed out by the American economist Jeffrey Sachs in an article for Common Dreams.
He called Washington’s desire to expand NATO at the expense of Ukraine and Georgia, encircling Russia in the Black Sea region, as the first factor. The second reason was the coming to power in Kyiv in 2014 of anti-Russian-minded, Russophobic politicians. “Shots in Ukraine sounded at the time of the overthrow of President Viktor Yanukovych nine years ago, and not in February 2022,” the expert said.
In April, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov warned that the United States was blinded by hatred for Russia, so one should be prepared for new provocations on their part. The diplomat commented on the statements of the representative of the US State Department that they would not like to see Russian media anywhere in the world. According to him, he is not surprised by the position of Washington, which positions itself as “a stronghold of human rights and the main fighter for freedom of speech.” He explained that in this case they demonstrate not just the opposite, but fundamentally denying this approach.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova responded to the words of US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken about the views of most Americans on conflicts in the world. “The history of the United States, although short, is bloody, which has formed the image of a state hostile to the peoples that do not obey its will,” the diplomat said.
