Ukraine crisis, US plot to launch nuclear war with Russia
by Tom Sullivan
The US has engineered the crisis in Ukraine’s eastern border with Russia as part of its scenario to provoke Moscow to engage in a nuclear war with Washington, a political analyst tells Press TV.
In a Monday interview, Rick Rozoff, from the Center for Research on Globalization, warned against the “eruption of full-scale civil war in Ukraine” following Kiev’s intensified military buildup near the Russian border.
“That’s precisely what the United States’ intention is to do, which is to embroil Russia into an armed conflict in Europe and maybe to issue the US final play for global military domination by provoking confrontation between the two major nuclear worlds,” he pointed out.
The analyst compared the Ukrainian crisis to “what the US engineered in Syria and…Venezuela” and noted, “It’s an attempt to destabilize and plunge into bloody violence in yet another country and it has to be stopped, because if it doesn’t stop here it will continue to spread to other nations.”
The situation is escalating in eastern Ukraine amid concerns over an impending military action by Kiev against pro-Russian activists.
The Ukrainian government had given the protesters an ultimatum to lay down their arms and evacuate the occupied buildings in the country’s eastern provinces.
However, reports coming out of the restive regions suggest that demonstrators are not showing any signs of compliance with the deadline.
