Washington seems to have deployed logistics and marketing Push-pull strategy in a political and military context through psychological hype war pressures as an exploder of a conventional third party war in Ukraine.
In which Ukraine would stand eventually on the ground against Russia in the interest of USA that would be the real contenders.
Or better the racketeers that supported the election of Biden.
Push Ukraine and Pull Russia in a Washington driven warmongering through many White House statements of these times stirring up things.
Biden seems to act as an arsonist while the two other players Putin and Zelensky seem to act both as firefighters till now, at least.
Unless you believe that Russia is slowly building up a big ground army close to Ukrainian border for an offensive warfare as it used in ancient times now in the age of satellites and PR.
I cannot believe it. Today it’s no use anymore doing it. Today state of the art war requires first a fast surprise attack by air and missiles to hit and to blind radars, antennas and all communication installations of enemy’s forces. Then come the building up a big ground army or better its perception.
The mainstream perception of a possible attack, as in this case, cannot anticipate the attack itself and it should be cause of abort this plan just because of the information leak.
But after all why should Putin do such an irresponsible and counterproductive act?
Both in terms of worldwide image worsening and in the meantime scarce profit.
Even if a Russian hypothetic invasion of Ukraine would have success and even in the case of not encountering any resistance by Ukrainian forces, in this case the main achievement for Russia it would be to get its border in contact with NATO’s ones.
That is exactly what Putin fears the most for Russia as he said many times (And I must add pretty reasonably).
So the reason why Putin is gradually building up a big ground army close to Ukrainian border it is in purpose of a defensive war not an offensive one.
Then you must see if Ukraine and or Russia will fall in this trap or not, as I guess and hope in the sake of peace.
It seem rather obvious that Russia will not fall in this trap because of its extremely advanced intelligence and data processing but Ukraine could fall in the trap because of her weaker strength to foreign pressures and her dependance on the West.
It is desirable that the relationship between Ukraine and Russia can improve on a Russian initiative aimed to better the strategy of communication of the defensive nature of its actions.
I think Russia is the only player that can help Ukraine to understand what it can do and what it cannot do. Others may not be in good faith.
