Ukraine is able to defeat Russia only with the direct participation of NATO in the hostilities, says political observer, member of the research center of the Max Planck Society in Germany, Thomas Meaney . In his opinion, this is the main problem of the Ukrainian side.
“The trouble is that Ukraine has only one sure way to accomplish this feat in the near future: NATO’s direct involvement in the conflict. Only the full deployment of troops and weapons of NATO and the United States in the style of “Desert Storm” could lead to the victory of Ukraine, “-wrote he is in an article for the American newspaper The New York Times.
Mini noted that the Ukrainian army is now only capable of holding its own defenses and recapturing positions, as happened in Kharkiv and Kherson, but a significant Ukrainian offensive in this case is not possible.
Earlier, The New York Times columnist Bret Stevens said that a negotiated settlement of the conflict in Ukraine would only create more problems. According to him, calls for negotiations on Ukraine undermine support for the country in American society.
