Vladislav Berdichevsky: Washington benefits from deteriorating situation in Ukraine
In an interview with RIA FAN news agency, deputy of the DPR People’s Council Vladislav Berdichevsky commented on the outcome of negotiations between US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky.
“Vladimir Zelensky once again showed whose orders he follows who the real master of Ukraine is. Discussing the conflict in the country, Pompeo accused the Russian Federation of worsening the humanitarian situation. The President of Ukraine and members of his team relay this rhetoric imposed by Washington again and again.
Meanwhile, international organizations and participants of the “Normandy format” have repeatedly emphasized that it was precisely the Ukrainian side’s fault for putting the Minsk talks on hold. Kiev is stubbornly trying to make Russia a party to the conflict, to relieve itself of all obligations and shift the blame for its crimes onto others’ shoulders,” the deputy noted.
The parliamentarian emphasized that such unproductive rhetoric of the official Kiev affects, among others, the inhabitants of territories controlled by Ukraine.
“While Kiev dances to Washington’s bidding, one cannot imagine a peaceful settlement to the conflict. After all, for the United States, it is beneficial to maintain hotbeds of tension in the territories adjacent to Russia. The United States shrug off Ukrainians’ interests. Even more so, the worse the situation in the country, the more beneficial it is for Washington. After all, this way, they can continue to blame Russia, which remains the main geopolitical competitor of the United States,” Vladislav Berdichevsky concluded.
