U.S. Pushes For
Escalation, Arms Kiev By Laundering Weapons
Through Abu Dhabi

- The U.S. is circumventing its own
proclaimed policy of not delivering weapons
to Ukraine and is thereby, despite urgent
misgivings from its European allies,
increasing the chance of a wider
catastrophic war in Europe.
The Ukrainian coup
went to an international arms exhibition
in Dubai. There he met the U.S. chief
military weapon salesman.
ABU DHABI – Ukrainian
President Petro Poroshenko is expected
to meet with U.S. defense companies
Tuesday during a major arms exhibition
here even though the American government
has not cleared the firms to sell Kiev
Frank Kendall, the
Pentagon’s acquisition executive is
scheduled to meet with a Ukrainian
delegation Monday evening, however
Poroshenko is not expected to be there.
Kendall, in an interview, said he will
be bringing a message of support from
the United States.
“I expect the
conversation will be about their needs,”
Kendall told Defense One a few hours
before the meeting. “We’re limited at
this point in time in terms of what
we’re able to provide them, but where we
can be supportive, we want to be.”
Poroshenko, urged on by
his neocon U.S. sponsors, wants total war
with Russia. Porosheko's deputy foreign
minister, currently on a visit in Canada,
relayed the message:
Ukraine's deputy foreign
minister says he is preparing for
"full-scale war" against Russia and
wants Canada to help by supplying lethal
weapons and the training to use them.
Vadym Prystaiko, who
until last fall was Ukraine's ambassador
to Canada, says the world must not be
afraid of joining Ukraine in the fight
against a nuclear power.
In the mind of these folks
waging a "full-scale war" against a nuclear
superpower like Russia is nothing to be
afraid of. These are truly lunatics.
Russia says that U.S.
weapons delivered to Ukraine would create
real trouble. They mean it. To hint how
Russia would counter such a move it just
offered a spiced up S-300 missile
defense system to Iran:
Sergei Chemezov, chief
executive of the Russian defense
corporation Rostec, said Tehran is
considering its offer to sell an
Antey-2500 anti-ballistic air defense
The Antey-2500 is a
mobile surface-to-air missile system
that offers enhanced combat
capabilities, including the destruction
of aircraft and ballistic missiles at a
range of about 1,500 miles, according to
its manufacturer, Almaz-Antey.
The system was
developed from a less advanced version
-- the 1980s-generation S-300V system --
which has a 125-mile range. A 2007
contract to supply the S-300 system to
Iran was canceled in 2010, after the
U.S. and Israel lobbied against it, ...
Such a system in Iran
would, in case of a conflict, endanger every
U.S. airplane in the Middle East.
But that threat did not
deter the U.S. As the U.S. arms dealer in
Abu Dhabi said: "where we can be supportive,
we want to be". The U.S.
will now disguise its arms-to-Kiev
laundering it through its sponsored
Middle East dictatorships:
Christopher Miller @ChristopherJM
Poroshenko, UAE agree on
"delivery of certain types of armaments
and military hardware to #Ukraine."
The United Arab Emirates
is not known as arms producer. But it buys
lots of U.S. weapons. It will now forward
those to Ukraine while the U.S. will claim
that it does not arm Ukraine. Who do they
think will believe them?
This is again a dangerous
escalation of the conflict in Ukraine by
U.S. machinations. It comes at the same
moment that Russia, France, Germany and
Ukraine meet in Paris to
push for faster implementation of the
Minsk 2 accord for a ceasefire and for a
political solution of the civil war in
On Monday spokesman for
the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry Yevhen
Perebyinis said that during their Paris
meeting, the foursome of foreign
ministers will focus on the
implementation of the Minsk agreements
and withdrawal of heavy artillery in
The Ukrainian government
has said that it will
not withdraw its artillery as long as
there are still skirmishes around a few
flashpoints along the ceasefire line. In Shirokyne
east of Mariupol the government aligned neo-nazi
battalion Azov continues to attack the
federalists. The Ukrainian propaganda claims
that the federalists plan an immediate
attack on Mariupol. That is nonsense and the
federalist have denied any plans for further
fighting. Unlike the Ukrainian government
the federalist started to
pull back their artillery and
will continue to do so.
The Ukrainian government
is breaking the Minsk 2 agreement by not
pulling back its heavy artillery from the
ceasefire line. The U.S. is arming the
Ukrainian army and will soon
train its volunteer neo-nazi "national
The major European powers,
Germany, France and Russia, try to tame the
conflict down. The U.S. and its poodles in
Kiev continue to poor oil into the fire. If
the Europeans do not succeed in pushing back
against Washington the Ukraine with burn and
Europe with it.
In Further Escalation U.S.
Delivery Of Weapons To Kiev Will Be
Laundered Through Abu Dhabi

If the US were to supply Ukraine with
ammunition and weapons, it would “explode
the whole situation” in eastern Ukraine and
Russia would be forced to respond
“appropriately,” Russia's Deputy Foreign
Minister Sergey Ryabkov said.
