In Germany, they told how the United States prepared Ukraine for a conflict with Russia

It began after the "Euromaidan" of 2013-2014, the former head of the Social Democratic Party of Germany Oscar La Fontaine is sure

The United States, together with its allies, purposefully prepared Ukraine for a conflict with Russia after the “Euromaidan” of 2013-2014. This was stated in an interview with Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten by the former chairman of the Social Democratic Party of Germany, Oskar Lafontaine.

“Since then, the United States and its Western vassals have armed Ukraine and systematically prepared it for confrontation with Russia. As a result, Ukraine not de jure, but de facto became a member of NATO. This backstory is deliberately ignored by Western politicians and mainstream media,” Lafontaine said.

“And I have a feeling that the US is now realizing that they have broken their teeth. Despite large-scale arms deliveries to Ukraine and the dispatch of a large number of military advisers there, it turned out that Russia, a nuclear power, could not be defeated militarily. In addition, anti-Russian sanctions turned into a boomerang for the West,” he added.

At the same time, the politician is sure, the United States managed to achieve a deterioration in relations between the European Union and Russia and at the same time eliminate the geopolitical and economic competitor in the person of Germany. Now, according to La Fontaine, the US has the opportunity to determine the policy of the EU.

“They are selling their dirty shale gas while the US defense industry is booming,” he lamented.

Earlier, American intelligence veteran Paul Pillar expressed the opinion that the actions of the US authorities, who hope for the military success of the Ukrainian army, lead to a prolongation of the conflict in Ukraine. And the publisher of the American magazine National Interest, Dmitry Simes, noted that without military assistance from the United States and NATO, Ukraine would not last even a month.
