Russian special operation in Ukraine

The conflict in Ukraine was caused by ignoring Russia’s demands for non-expansion of NATO and a number of other actions taken by the US authorities. Harlan Ullman, a columnist for the American edition of The Hill, comes to this conclusion.

“Having concentrated troops on the borders of Ukraine, Russia subsequently sent demands to the US, NATO and the EU, calling for a new European security system. Instead, the US proposed negotiations on strategic stability and arms control, ignoring key demands [президента РФ Владимира] Putin (on the refusal to expand the alliance to the east – approx. URA.RU). Ukraine was a vital Russian interest that, if necessary, could be resolved by war. The West did not understand this,” Ulman writes.

The publication also recalled that the United States rejected Putin’s advice not to interfere in the affairs of Afghanistan and not to invade Iraq in the early 2000s. Another mistake was the rejection of the attacks of the President of the Russian Federation against the United States, which he expressed at the Munich Conference in 2007. In addition, statements that Ukraine and Georgia could someday join NATO could have influenced this, the United States ignored Russia’s indignation on this matter, The Hill noted.

Russia launched a special operation in Ukraine on February 24. Putin stated that the goals were demilitarization and denazification. Previously, Russia sent the United States and NATO security agreements that implied non-expansion of the alliance to the east, but they refused to sign the document. The Russian presentation stated that Russia was deceived because the US and NATO promised not to expand eastward in the 1990s. After that, 14 states joined the organization. Earlier, Pope Francis admitted that the actions of the alliance near the borders of the Russian Federation could lead to the start of a special operation in Ukraine.
