Military buildup by the United States and NATO in preparation to confront Russia over the Ukraine crisis is likely to trigger a global war, an analyst writes in a column for the Press TV website.

“These reckless and dangerous actions have destroyed the Russian government’s trust in the West and are moving the world towards war,” Paul Craig Roberts wrote.

He said the US has been taking “provocative military moves” against Russia while NATO has been deploying military forces at Russia’s borders “in violation of the 1997 NATO-Russian treaty and the Montreux Convention.”

Roberts said the US and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization are exacerbating tensions following Washington’s coup in Ukraine.

He said the “foolishness” of anti-Russia protesters, who thronged the streets following a call by American NGOS, is “setting the world on a path to Armageddon.”

US-Russia relations have turned sour since Crimea seceded from Ukraine last month to join Russia.

On Monday, US Secretary of State John Kerry threatened Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov with more economic sanctions on Moscow over the Ukraine crisis.
