Peace might have been possible, one year after the Russian special operation that tried to put an end to a real massacre perpetrated by the most extreme forces of Kiev against the population of Russian origin in the Donbas region and others on Ukrainian territory.
This February 24, on the twelfth month of this military operation, the dead and wounded were counted in tens of thousands, and the material destruction was incalculable, as is also the foreign interference which has exacerbated the war and turned Ukraine into a testing ground, regardless of who dies. There, the United States and NATO are displaying their military means, a sort of experiment to see if they would be useful for a larger war, the one they have proposed to wage against Russia and, in the longer term, against China.
This very Friday, the Chinese Government has made public a Plan for the solution of the war in Ukraine.
Although it has 12 points, one of them would suffice for the achievement of peace: “All parties should support Russia and Ukraine in working in the same direction and resuming direct dialogue as quickly as possible, so as to gradually deescalate the situation and ultimately reach a comprehensive ceasefire.”
In another section, the document made public by the Government of the Asian giant maintains that “Unilateral sanctions and maximum pressure cannot solve the issue; they only create new problems. China opposes unilateral sanctions unauthorized by the UN Security Council. Relevant countries should stop abusing unilateral sanctions and “long-arm jurisdiction.”
Predictably, the U.S. government immediately jumped at the Chinese challenge to achieve peace and remove the sanctions policy and suspend arms shipments to Kiev.
Arrogance, as always, overcame reason: “This war could end tomorrow, if Russia stopped attacking Ukraine and withdrew its forces,” said White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.
Logically, the U.S. government is not prepared to have its “world police” actions questioned, its criminal way of seeking resources through the weapons it provides for wars, regardless of who and how many die.
Eliminating arms deliveries to Kiev means cutting off the tap for the U.S. Military Complex, for which Ukraine is a laboratory to test lethal biological experiments and a practice field for its new arms production.
And even less possible, in Washington’s logic, would be to cease its sanctions against Russia, which, moreover, have been the matrix of a policy of subjugation of the nations of the European Union, whose governments have bowed to whatever is ordered from the United States.
The other war component in the conflict, NATO, also “jumped in like a jackrabbit” when it learned of the Chinese peace plan for Ukraine.
In short, the conflict around Ukraine continues to be debated on shaky ground, where the achievement of peace does not seem to be a priority among those who continue arming Kiev and getting rich with the war.
