Three Ukrainian navy ships illegally crossed Russia’s border on November 25. They ignored demands to stop in Russian territorial waters. Russian border guards had to use weapons and the three vessels were detained. Inforos spoke about the incident with Tom Luongo, an independent political and economic analyst, publisher of the Gold, Goats 'n Guns.
I absolutely believe this was a provocation. I think Poroshenko is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the United States’ foreign policy or intelligence community. And they want him to stay in power, they are not sure what is going happen in Ukraine if Poroshenko lose the forthcoming elections.
West worked very hard in 2014 and 2015 to bring him to power. I think there is a lot of collusion going on between the US and Britain, who want to get some control over the Black Sea and they have been very belligerent about this. Poroshenko was made by them and is going to do what he is said.
Poroshenko wants US warships to enter the Black Sea and he will ask for that. NATO is itching for any excuse to do it in such a way that it would look like the good guys coming to rescue. The Americans have this fundamental need – to look like the good guys but in fact doing horribly aggressive things they want to do. It is what the US needs to do in order to sell politically all of these provocations and this aggressive stance by people who really don’t have our national interests in heart.
Other possible actions against Russia
The Ukrainian military may step up their shelling on the contact line in the Donbass. Ukraine may also play some provocative games in Transnistria as well. We may see either another naval incidents or some false flag operations. I am very worried about the British special forces being used as a means to create false flag incidents on the contact line in the Donbass and use this as casus belli to get NATO’s involvement. Once British special forces units are deployed there, they may state some of them were killed or captured in order to insist that NATO should intervene. Unfortunately, most people in Western Europe and the United States do not understand what is really going on in the region.
Martial law amidst election campaign
The martial law is the means by which Poroshenko wanted to gain absolute control of the entire country for 60 days. It is an administrative measure that allows him to act with more freedom to quell the political opposition. Even if the elections are not postponed, it will still help him to marginalize the opposition.
Trump and INF Treaty
The Americans have a very dangerous cabal in the United States that believe it can win a war against Russia. They are the neoconservatives, they are the people that are currently advising Donald Trump on the foreign policy. And Trump thinks that, having declared his plans to withdraw from the INF Treaty he has got a leverage now for the talks with Russia. It seems Trump is not in charge of his own foreign policy. I think that their ultimate goal is to get missiles on the Russian border so that they can point directly at Moscow. And that is an incredibly dangerous and stupid thing to do.
