A top Ukrainian politician has called on Washington to deploy its military, including army units and air defense systems, to the troubled and derailed Eastern European nation, in what would undoubtedly be seen by Moscow as a grave provocation.

Russia has repeatedly said that the presence of US military personnel on its borders with Ukraine would be a major red line in the simmering political conflict between the two nations.


In February, Kiev called on NATO to begin flying warplanes and troop transports near the disputed Crimean Peninsula. Moscow has insisted that such moves are “provocative” and increase the chances of a potentially catastrophic incident, undermining regional stability.

In addition, the deputy prime minister repeated allegations that the Kremlin may be planning to station nuclear weapons in Crimea.

Russian officials, including Yury Gempel, the head of the Crimean parliament’s diplomatic committee, have blasted the claims as “unsubstantiated.” State Duma member Andrey Kozenko went further, saying those pushing the purported conspiracy without evidence should see “a psychotherapist” rather than making appeals to the West.

The US has started several wars and conflicts since the end of WWII, all leading to the same outcome: death, destruction, misery, and economic waste. A war with Russia will end the same way, only… Read more »
