Mo Brookes, a Republican US congressman, said that giving lethal weapons to Ukraine could help it to return the “occupied” territories. He also added that Minsk agreements and cease-fire in Donbass didn’t lead to the return of the so-called “occupied” territories of Ukraine. The most interesting question in this regard is what the congressman meant under “occupied” territories. And occupied by whom?

‘By receiving lethal weapons from the US, Kiev could stage a military operation aimed at the return of the occupied territories and thus force Russia to transfer additional military resources to Ukraine’, Brooks said. However, there have never been Russian troops in Ukraine during all the time of the conflict. Obviously, the US want to provoke Russia and Ukraine to begin an open armed conflict which let the Americans to further pursue their interests in the region.

He added that Russia could not afford to maintain the parallel powerful military operations in Syria and Ukraine. It’s evident that the US are interested in the escalation of the Ukrainian conflict because it can presumably reduce Russia’s military presence in Syria.
