The Biden administration made it clear last week that it does not want peace negotiations between Kyiv and Moscow, thus asking the question of who is at war with Russia, and is this further proof that it is not Zelensky’s Ukraine government calling the shots?
Jake Sullivan, President Joe Biden’s national security adviser, attended a conference at the Carnegie Endowment on Friday and said there are still uncertainties about where the war is headed but that the United States will keep doing all it can to militarily defeat Russia.
“What we do know is that it’s our job to continue to sustain our military support to Ukraine, so they are in the best possible position on the battlefield so that, if and when the diplomacy is ripe, they will be in the best possible position at the negotiating table,” he said.
“That moment is not right now,” Sullivan said.
TREND FORECAST: The United States will not negotiate for peace with Russia, instead, as made clear with their 75-year war record, they will keep fighting until they and their cronies are defeated and/or they pull out as losers as they did with the Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan wars.
As evidenced by Sullivan’s statement, the U.S. is in full charge of the war, and as we noted, the U.S. was responsible for overthrowing the democratically elected government of Victor Yanukovych in 2014 and inciting the Ukraine civil war. (See “Washington is Driving the World to Final War.”)
The Trends Journal has documented how there can be no talk of peace in Ukraine because the U.S. has a willing army to square off against Vladimir Putin. It has been a career goal of Antony Blinken, his boss Victoria Nuland, and other Russia-haters in the White House to destroy Putin so they can install a pro-U.S. stooge inside the Kremlin. (See “U.S. MILITARY HEAD MILLEY CHANGES HIS TUNE AFTER CRITICIZED FOR CALLING FOR KYIV TO NEGOTIATE, NOW SAYS RUSSIA LOST,” and “PUTIN DIGS IN, CALLS UKRAINE WAR A ‘LONG PROCESS,’ SAYS WEST USING UKRAINIANS AS CANNON FODDER.”)
The Council on Foreign Relations reported on Friday that the Biden administration and Congress have directed nearly $50 billion in assistance to Ukraine in 2022, which includes weapons, financial assistance, and humanitarian support.
Russia has said it is willing to negotiate for a peaceful settlement, but the U.S. has called the annexation of four territories in Ukraine a non-starter. Sullivan said Russian attempts at peace can’t be taken seriously as long as it aims to seize Ukrainian territory.
Sergei Ryabkov, Russia’s deputy foreign minister, said in November that the Kremlin is “open to dialogue, without preconditions.”
Dmitry Peskov, press secretary to Russian President Vladimir Putin, blamed Kyiv for refusing to negotiate, according to Voice of America.
“The unwillingness of the Ukrainian side to solve the problem, to enter into negotiations, moreover, the actions of the Ukrainian side to abandon the agreed-on understandings of the text, and so on, these are all the consequences,” Peskov said.
