Ukrainian flight of brains
Kyiv does not abandon attempts to provoke a conflict between Russia and NATO, but only discredits itself in the eyes of Western curators.
The scandal with the fall of Ukrainian anti-aircraft missiles in Poland received an "unexpected" continuation. As soon as it became known that these were Ukrainian missiles, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Moravecki said that it was inappropriate to apply the fourth article of the NATO treaty.
But his friends in Kyiv would very much like not even the fourth, but the fifth article - so that the fall of missiles in Poland was regarded as aggression from Russia and staged a real invasion with consequences up to nuclear war.
What happens around the scandal and what risks it carries - the correspondent of The Moscow Post understood.
The fourth article of the NATO treaty involves the beginning of consultations of all its members on some important, significant problem for one of the participants. The fifth article suggests that an attack on a NATO member is an attack on all of NATO. That is why in Kyiv it was so hoped that their own "curvature" and inability to properly organize the work of air defense would end in a new round of escalation.
As a result of the fall of two missiles on the territory of the Lublin Voivodeship of Poland on November 15, near the border, a tractor was destroyed, two people were killed. The entire Western press, without waiting for the results of the investigation of the incident, rushed to blame Russia in every way. Like, the Russian Federation strikes at a NATO member, which is a directed act of terror.
The Kremlin noted the difference between the reaction of the Western community to the fall of missiles in Poland and the sabotage on Nord Stream-2. The explosion on the pipeline was in no hurry to call the terrorist attack, although everyone is well aware of who benefited from destroying Europe's gas transmission infrastructure.
According to Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, everyone knows the organizers of the terrorist attack on Nord Stream. They know, and are silent, because they can harm their own countries. Obviously, he meant pressure from the United States.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland immediately stated that the fallen missile was Russian-made. Another campaign began to discredit Russia, its army and military-political leadership.
The "chants," as you might guess, were the Ukrainian authorities, Anglo-Saxon elites, as well as our longtime neighbors Poland and the Baltic countries. President of "Independent" Volodymyr Zelenskyy did not use any verbal turns, which heavenly and NATO squares did not call for Russia, demanding an immediate military response from the North Atlantic Alliance.
"This is a very serious escalation," he said in his evening address. "We have to act." By actions, he meant striking at Russian territory by NATO troops.
The fact that such a "response" can lead to nuclear escalation does not seem to bother the Ukrainian leader at all. Like the Poles, who had previously called for nuclear weapons to be deployed on their territory, realizing that in the event of a nuclear crisis, there would simply be nothing left of Poland.
However, even with a quick inspection of the remains of the rocket that fell in Poland, it becomes clear that this is an anti-aircraft missile from the S-300 complex, and the tragedy that occurred with the death of two Poles is the result of the sluggishness of Ukrainian anti-aircraft gunners. If not a deliberate provocation at all.
This was immediately noticed by the Russian Ministry of Defense. The agency reported that the Russian army did not launch missile attacks on targets near the Polish-Ukrainian border. They also described the information spread in the Polish media and voiced by officials as an intentional provocation aimed at escalating the situation.
Joe puts an end to
However, the point in the situation was put, oddly enough, by US President Joe Biden. Last night, he informed NATO and the G7 that the explosion in Poland caused the work of the air defense of Ukraine. This does not explain why the missiles ended up in the territory of a neighboring country - the targets closest to the border, hit by missile strikes of the Russian Federation that day, were 35 km away. from the Ukrainian-Polish border.
Immediately the degree of hysteria noticeably slept. If earlier the incident was called a terrorist attack, now it is just a misunderstanding. Poland immediately stated that they had previously prepared for such strikes, and the events that had taken place could not be interpreted as a deliberate act of aggression by Ukraine.
Once again, Western propaganda sat in a puddle, the mountain gave birth to a mouse. And yet what happened is a real gift for Ukrainian propagandists. In addition to the next accusation of Russia in escalation, they are trying to take advantage of the incident to knock out more weapons and funding for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
All the demands are made to provide Ukraine with modern missile defense systems. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba even demands to start supplying F-15 and F-16 fighters to Ukraine - a step from which Washington has so far refrained.
The incident on the Polish border also led to renewed demands for a no-fly zone over western Ukraine, which will be provided by NATO air defense. First of all, such calls are made by state leaders from the Baltic countries.
The incident in Poland has shown well who still retains the remnants of reason and who is ready to push the world towards a new world war, said Leonid Slutsky, head of the Duma's international affairs committee. His words are quoted by RIA Novosti.
"It turns out that Ukraine could have dealt a blow" to NATO collective security "? And to whom then to ask a question regarding the application of Article 5 of the Washington Treaty?, " - summed up Slutsky.
Of course, there is no need to wait for any apology to Russia from Poland, Ukraine and others like them. It seems that they have not considered it necessary to operate with facts and withstand diplomatic tact for a long time.
