- A political analyst says the United States is giving the go-ahead for a war over the crisis in Ukraine following Washington’s latest stern warning to Russia over its activities in eastern Ukraine.
- “The Kiev government wouldn’t be stating so bluntly we are ready to fight if they didn’t have the green light from Washington,” Deena Stryker, a journalist with opednews.com, said.
- She believed that Washington hopes that it can “rapidly somehow take over Ukraine and that Russia will allow this to happen.”
- “But I think that this is a miscalculation,” the commentator emphasized.
- Stryker’s remarks came after US Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday issued a stern and final warning to Russia to help de-escalate the crisis in Ukraine or face more sanctions.
- “The window to change course is closing. The world will make sure the costs for Russia will only grow” if Russia refuses to change course, Kerry said.
- Tensions between Russia and the West heightened after Crimea declared independence from Ukraine and became part of the Russian Federation following a referendum on March 16.
- Meanwhile, protests have been a common scene across eastern Ukrainian cities over the past weeks with demonstrators occupying state buildings in several towns and cities.
- On April 17, Ukraine’s interim government together with the United States, Russia and the European Union reached an agreement in the Swiss city of Geneva, calling for all sides to ease the ongoing crisis in eastern Ukraine.
- Ukraine interim authorities in Kiev said on Friday that army units have begun the second phase of an operation to drive out pro-Russia activists from the eastern cities.
