Russia: Anglo-Saxons need a war at any cost

Russian FM spokeswoman Maria Zakharova says US hysteria is more indicative than ever.

Commenting on the US military dispatch in Poland, which borders Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said White House hysteria was more indicative than ever.

On Friday, WH national security advisor Jake Sullivan said “We continue to see signs of Russian escalation including new forces arriving at the Ukrainian border,” and that “An invasion could begin at any time should Vladimir Putin decide to order it… It could begin during the Olympics despite a lot of speculation that it will only happen after the Olympics.”

Russia has been repeatedly denying such allegations, with the assurances and the repetition getting quite tedious – as even Ukraine denied the ‘Russian military build-up on the eastern Ukrainian border.’ 

“The way that he has built up his forces and put them in place… makes it clear to us that there’s a very distinct possibility that Russia will choose to act militarily,” Sullivan added yesterday. 

Furthermore, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin ordered the deployment of 3,000 additional US troops to Poland, which will be arriving next week. Earlier, some 450 UK troops were sent to Europe, including 100 special forces. 

“The road roller of the US military-political machine is ready to go through people’s lives again. The whole world is watching how militarism and imperial ambitions expose themselves,” Zakharova said. “The hysteria of the White House is more indicative than ever. The Anglo-Saxons need a war. At any cost. Provocations, misinformation and threats are a favorite method of solving their own problems,” she said.

Yesterday, the US, UK, Netherlands and Japan ordered their citizens to leave Ukraine.

In an interview with NBC News, US President Joe Biden said: “Things may go wild rapidly” in Ukraine,” advising American people to “evacuate immediately… American citizens should leave, should leave now”

“We’re dealing with one of the largest armies in the world. This is a very different situation and things could go crazy quickly,” the Democrat president added.

Japan raised the alarm on maximum risk, while the Netherlands said “it is not an evacuation, but rather a recommendation” to leave Ukrainian soil. 

The European approach

Washington has been using NATO as its backup, however, some analysts express that Europe should go after its own interest rather than pursue Washington’s military ambitions. 

Last Tuesday, the French Finance Minister, Bruno Le Maire said the European position on the Ukraine issue as well as others, is not dependent on the US but rather on dialogue. 

Le Maire told Inter that “The Europeans, thanks especially to President of the Republic [Emmanuel Macron], have an independent position on Ukraine and different interests from the Americans. And it needs to be made clear to our American allies that we have different interests in this crisis. Our goal is not threats, not confrontation, but dialogue and de-escalation.”

Le Maire also spoke of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline as the main component of de-escalation of tensions in the Russia-Ukraine borders.

On the same day, France’s Emmanuel Macron, in a press conference in Kiev, also expressed that meetings with both Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky “made it possible to make progress in building stability and security in the region,” divulging that he expects a de-escalation in Ukraine after Putin assured him an escalation is not on the table.

During the press conference after the meeting, he thanked Zelensky for his “readiness to comply,” adding that he affirmed his commitment to a ceasefire in Donbas.
