According to him, the US plan was to “support the insurgency”, possibly in the western part of Ukraine against Russian forces in the east, reports RIA Novosti.
Horton pointed out that the United States does not want negotiations, it wants to weaken Russia by prolonging the conflict. “This is their” progressive “task, and it is becoming more extensive”, – said the expert.
The observer recalled the situation in Afghanistan, when official Washington “supported the mujahideen, including Osama bin Laden,” due to which “it was possible to bankrupt the Soviet Union.”
Earlier, Newsweek announced that the United States is taking further steps on the issue of assistance to Ukraine, something that the US authorities had previously promised not to do. It is noted that since 2014, the West has hesitated at every step on the way to participation in the Ukrainian conflict, fearing the outbreak of the Third World War. Gradually, however, Washington began to increase its presence by training Ukrainian soldiers and supplying weapons.
