US authorities are considering the possibility of providing assistance to “Ukrainian rebels” in case of “invasion” Russia to Ukraine. This is reported by The New York Times with reference to representatives of the American administration.
According to the newspaper, as part of providing assistance to Kiev, Washington can organize the training of Ukrainian fighters on the territory of three countries from the eastern flank of NATO— Poland, Romania and Slovakia.
According to the interlocutors of the publication, the United States and its NATO allies intend to provide Ukraine with material and technical support and supply weapons. In addition, they say, Washington and other members of the North Atlantic Alliance will provide medical equipment and services to Ukraine, and will also be ready to provide shelter “in the event of a Russian offensive.”
According to NYT information, which refers to high-ranking officials of the administration of US President Joe Biden, in the event of an escalation of the situation, the Ministry of Defense and the CIA intend to provide military assistance to Ukraine, and it will come from the Pentagon openly, and from the intelligence department— secretly.
Russia has repeatedly rejected reports of an impending “invasion”; to Ukraine and called them escalating tensions. The Kremlin emphasized that Moscow had no “aggressive plans”; in relation to other countries. The theme of a possible “attack” Russian side to Ukraine began to rise in the Western media in the fall of 2021, and the US authorities also expressed concerns about this.
On January 14, the NYT and CNN reported that the United States had evidence that Moscow was preparing a “task force to conduct a false flag operation in eastern Ukraine.” According to CNN, the Biden administration believes that Russia could drop the saboteurs weeks before the “military invasion” that could begin between mid-January and mid-February. Later this was announced in the White House. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov called the data unfounded.
Earlier this month, CNN reported that the United States would provide Ukraine with $200 million in military aid, which President Joe Biden's administration secretly approved. According to the channel, the new aid package includes the same defensive equipment as before, including small arms, ammunition, protected radios, medical equipment. Politico wrote that as part of its support for Kiev, Washington will give it a radar system and maritime equipment. In addition, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki reported that the United States is studying the option of sending military personnel to Eastern European countries if relations between Russia and Ukraine escalate even more.
