अमेरिका और पश्चिम, रूस-यूक्रेन युद्ध को युद्ध में धकेल रहे हैं : तय्यब अर्द्गान की होगी अहम् भूमिका : रिपोर्ट

रूस के एक वरिष्ठ अधिकारी ने बताया है कि पश्चिम, माॅस्को को यूक्रेन के साथ लड़ाई के लिए उकसा रहा है।

रूस की संसद में अन्तर्राष्ट्रीय मामलों के आयोग के प्रमुख का कहना है कि पश्चिम को यह बात समझनी चाहिए कि रूस, विश्व के लिए ख़तरा नहीं है। नियोनीड स्लोतिस्की ने कहा कि हालांकि पश्चिम अपनी चालों में कामयाब नहीं होने पाएगा। इसी बीच क्रेमलिन के प्रवक्ता पेस्कोफ ने यूक्रेन द्वारा नैटो की सदस्यता के बारे में कहा कि यूक्रेन के इस काम से हालात ख़राब होंगे। उधर जर्मनी पहले ही कह चुका है कि रूस के विरुद्ध नैटो की हर कार्यवाही का वह खुलकर समर्थन करेगा।

याद रहे कि नैटो, पांच देशों और यूक्रेन के साथ मिलकर काला सागर में सैन्य अभ्यास करने जा रहा है जिसे टीकाकार, रूस के विरुद्ध पश्चिम का षडयंत्र बता रहे हैं। इसी बीच तुर्की के राष्ट्रपति रजब तैयब अर्दोग़ान ने यूक्रेन के राष्ट्रपति विलेदमीर ज़ेलेंस्की के साथ भेंट में यूक्रेन संकट के कूटनीतिक समाधार पर बल दिया है। उन्होंने कहा कि मुझको विश्वास है कि यूक्रेन संकट, कूटनीतिक प्रयासों से हल हो सकता है।

इसी बीच सूचना मिली है कि अमरीका ने सैन्य उपकरणों और कुछ सैनिकों सहित युद्धक विमान यूक्रेन भेजे हैं।

रूस और यूक्रेन आमने सामने : बड़ी जंग का बिगुल किसी भी वक़्त बज सकता है

बड़े और दौलत से मालामाल देशों ने दुनियां की तबाही के तमाम इंतिज़ाम कर रखे हैं, ये देश जो चाहते हैं करते, जैसा चाहते हैं करते हैं, इनके लिए इंसानियत, अमन, भाईचारा कोई मायने नहीं रखती है, शुरू के वक़्त से ही इस ज़मीन पर ताक़तवर लोगों, मुल्कों ने बेतहाशा ज़ुल्म किये हैं, अनगिनत लोगों की जानें ली हैं

इस वक़्त एक बड़ी जंग खतरा दुनियां पर मंडरा रहा है, जो हालात अभी तक बन चुके हैं उसे देख कर तो लगता है कि ये जंग आने वाले किसी भी दिन शुरू हो सकती है, ये जंग रूस और यूक्रेन के बीच छिड़ सकती है, अगर जंग हुई तो अनेक देश इसमें शामिल हो सकते हैं और फिर ये एक बड़े युद्ध में बदल सकती है, रूस से अलग हुए यूक्रेन और रूस आमने सामने हैं, बता दें कि रूस ने क्रीमिया पर अपना कब्ज़ा जमाया हुआ है और वो यूक्रेन को इतनी आज़ादी नहीं देना चाहता है कि वो नेटो का सदस्य बने, जबकि अमेरिका और यूरोपीय देश रूस को काउंटर करने के लिए यूक्रेन के सहारे अपने तीर चलाना चाहते हैं

यूक्रेन पहले रूस का ही भाग था, जब वो अलग हो गया तो रूस ने क्रीमिया को फिर रूस में शामिल कर लिया, लम्बे वक़्त से यूक्रेन और रूस के सम्बन्ध ख़राब हैं, अब दोनों जंग के मुहाने पर हैं

यहाँ यूक्रेन ने तुर्की से मदद मांगी है कि वो अज़रबैज़ान की तरह उस की मदद करे और युद्ध में उसका साथ दे, अमेरिका ने अपने दो बेड़े काला सागर में यूक्रेन की मदद के लिए भेज दिए हैं, वहीँ रूस ने बेहद सख्त चेतावनी जारी करते हुए कहा है कि वो धरती से यूक्रेन का नामो निशान मिटा देगा, और गोलियां यूक्रेन के सैनिकों की टांगों में नहीं बल्कि उनके चेहरे पर मारी जायेंगी, रूस की चेतावनी के बाद से यूक्रेन में दहशत है

यूरोप के देश यूक्रेन के साथ खड़े हैं, तुर्की यूक्रेन को हथियार बेचता है, यूक्रेन और क्रीमिया किसी समय ओटोमन एम्पायर का हिस्सा रहे थे, तब तुर्की की हुकूमत तीन महदीपों के 54 देशों तक फैली हुई थी, यूरोप के 24 देशों ओटोमन एम्पायर का राज था, अमेरिका जैसी महाशक्ति से तुर्की ने 100 साल तक टैक्स वसूल किया था, तुर्की का इंट्रेस्ट आज भी अपने खोये राज के हिस्सों में है

अगर ये जंग छिड़ गयी तो कई दोस्त तब दुश्मन बन सकते हैं, पाकिस्तान के रिश्ते रूस से नए नए बने हैं लेकिन जंग की सूरत में वो हर हाल में तुर्की के साथ जायेगा, जबकि भारत अमेरिका के साथ होगा, भारत और रूस जोकि बहुत अच्छे दोस्त थे वो आमने सामने हो सकते हैं

Is Russia Preparing to Go to War in Ukraine?

Troop buildup near Ukraine’s border is the largest since 2014.

Russia’s military buildup near the border of Ukraine continued this week, deepening global concern about Moscow’s ultimate intentions as senior Russian officials and state media dial up their incendiary rhetoric.

What seemed like a show of force to the new Biden administration has become, perhaps, something bigger. Videos posted on social media appear to show convoys of military vehicles arriving in the region from as far away as Siberia, according to an analysis by the open-source investigative group the Conflict Intelligence Team. Troops are massing just south of the Russian city of Voronezh, some 155 miles away from the border with Ukraine—far enough away that an immediate invasion seems unlikely, but close enough to set nerves on edge.
The movement of troops from western and southern military districts far exceeds what would normally be expected for a standard exercise of the sort Russia has been carrying out of late. What is both puzzling and troubling about the buildup in Voronezh is its apparent offensive posture, said Kirill Mikhailov, a researcher with the Conflict Intelligence Team. The region borders government-controlled Ukraine, not the breakaway regions in Donetsk and Luhansk, where local proxies are dependent on Russian support.

The military buildup has been accompanied by increased saber-rattling by Russian officials. On Thursday, senior Kremlin official Dmitry Kozak warned a major escalation in the conflict would mark the “beginning of the end of Ukraine.” At the same time, Russia, which has sought to paint Ukraine as an aggressor with warnings that Kyiv is preparing to ethnically cleanse the Donbass of Russians, has flagged intervention. On Friday, Russian press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, warned Russia could be forced to intervene in the event that a “human catastrophe similar to Srebrenica” arises, referring to the genocidal slaughter of more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslims by Serbian forces in July 1995.

On Thursday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the United States is increasingly alarmed by “escalating Russian aggressions” in the region. On Friday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke with his German counterpart, Heiko Maas, in which they emphasized the importance of standing by Ukraine against “unilateral Russian provocations.”

The conflict and bellicose rhetoric have flared periodically since a 2015 peace deal brought the worst of the fighting to an end and ushered in an uneasy stalemate. But Western leaders are clearly rattled. On Thursday, CNN reported the United States is considering sending warships to the Black Sea in a display of support.

Long-time observers of the conflict say an all-out invasion is unlikely. “I think everyone is in a similar place where we’re watching closely. I still think it’s more signaling and demonstration, but obviously no one is willing to exclude the fact that it could turn into something more serious,” said Andrea Kendall-Taylor, director of the transatlantic security program at the Center for a New American Security, who previously served as deputy national intelligence officer for Russia and Eurasia on the National Intelligence Council.
The reason for the buildup remains unclear, but experts point to domestic factors in Russia, Ukraine, and the United States.
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s approval ratings have continued to slump to an all-time low. The Kremlin is still grappling with the pandemic and, in January, saw mass street protests across the country in the wake of opposition leader Alexei Navalny’s arrest, who went on a hunger strike last week to demand medical treatment as his health has deteriorated.

“There is a whole slew of increasingly confrontational steps coming out of the Kremlin,” said Kendall-Taylor, including the recent humiliation of the European Union’s top diplomat Josep Borrell on his trip to Moscow and the decision to indefinitely recall the Russian ambassador to the United States for consultations. “It feels like Putin is drumming up the besieged Russia narrative.”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has taken an increasingly hard line against Russia, sanctioning Putin ally Viktor Medvedchuk and shuttering three TV stations controlled by the oligarch as his own approval ratings have fallen and he has struggled to end the war.
Moscow may believe it can provoke Zelensky into making a knee-jerk move in the Donbass, which would justify a Russian response—much as it did in Georgia in 2008 when former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili stumbled into war over the breakaway territory of South Ossetia.

“[It] seems that leading elites in Moscow perceive Zelensky as a Saakashvili type,” said Michael Kofman, a senior research scientist at CNA. “This perception, inaccurate though it may be, has real world consequences,” he said.

And then there’s the new administration in Washington. U.S. President Joe Biden is familiar with Ukraine, having served as former President Barack Obama’s point person on the conflict. “I think there could be some concern in the Kremlin that with the incoming Biden administration, that Zelensky may feel like he has more leeway to do things that Moscow doesn’t like,” Kendall-Taylor said.Putin, in the end, may want to replay 2008 but does not have the cards on the table.

“What Putin would love to do is not invade but repeat 2008 in Georgia,” said Taras Kuzio, a professor at the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, speaking at an event hosted by the German Marshall Fund on Friday. But “Zelensky is not Saakashvilli,” he said.

Ukrainian, Turkish presidents hold talks amid Donbass tensions with Russia

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy will hold talks with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Istanbul on Saturday, amid tensions between Kiev and Moscow over a long-running conflict in Ukraine’s eastern Donbass region.

Kiev has raised the alarm over a buildup of Russian forces near the border between Ukraine and Russia, and over a rise in violence along the line of contact separating Ukrainian troops and Russia-backed separatists in Donbass.

The Russian military movements have fueled concerns that Moscow is preparing to send forces into Ukraine. The Kremlin denies its troops are a threat, but says they will remain as long as it sees fit.

Zelenskiy and Erdogan are scheduled to hold bilateral talks at 1230 GMT, chair a cooperation meeting, and hold a joint news conference. Erdogan’s office said all aspects of Turkey-Ukraine ties and steps to deepen cooperation would be discussed.

“Regional and international issues will be on the agenda of the talks as well, on the basis of the understanding that peace and stability be preserved,” it said in a statement.

The United States says Russia has amassed more troops on Ukraine’s eastern border than at any time since 2014, when it annexed Crimea from Ukraine and backed separatists in Donbass.

On Friday, Turkey said Washington will send two warships to the Black Sea next week.

NATO member Turkey has forged close cooperation with Russia over conflicts in Syria, Libya and Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as in the defense and energy areas. But it has criticized Crimea’s annexation and supported Ukraine’s territorial integrity. It has also sold drones to Kyiv in 2019.

Ukraine and Russia have traded blame for the increase in violence in the conflict, which Kiev says has killed 14,000 people since 2014.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, in a call with Erdogan on Friday, accused Ukraine of “dangerous provocative actions” in Donbass.
Kiev said on Saturday Ukraine could be provoked by Russian aggravation of the situation in Donbass.

“We want the problems between the two countries to be solved in a peaceful manner, through dialogue,” Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said on Wednesday. “We are trying to keep balance with Russia and other Black Sea coastal countries without causing a crisis,” he added.
