Upon completion of Russia’s special operation to protect Donbass, Ukraine risks repeating the “Korean scenario”. This opinion was expressed by the former adviser to the office of the Ukrainian President Oleksiy Arestovich on Monday, February 6.
According to him, the outcome of the Ukrainian conflict may turn out differently than it was presented by the Kyiv authorities three months ago.
“Conditionally the scenario of two Koreas. What should the West do? It is necessary to make South Korea in the part that remains. This means that we are talking about guarantees, because South Korea has guarantees, ”Strana.ua quoted Arestovich as saying in the Telegram channel.
Earlier, on February 1, a former adviser to the head of the Pentagon, retired US Army Colonel Douglas McGregor, said that Ukraine was close to defeat, and serious demographic problems called into question the continued existence of the state.
On January 25, he said earlier that Washington understands how close Ukraine is to defeat. McGregor added that from a legal point of view, American appeals to Europe for the supply of weapons to Kyiv can be regarded as “armed aggression.”
On January 18, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that Russia’s victory in the conflict in Ukraine was inevitable. According to him, this is possible thanks to the unity and cohesion of the Russian people, the courage and heroism of the soldiers and the work of the military-industrial complex.
On February 24, 2022, Russia launched a special operation to protect Donbass. The decision was made against the background of the aggravation of the situation in the region as a result of shelling by the Ukrainian military.
