"Situation has changed dramatically." Piontkovsky points out the nuance of US assistance and explains what will happen after the destruction of the Crimean bridge
Russian political journalist and analyst Andrey Piontkovsky said that the situation with regard to the supply of weapons to Ukraine, including long-range weapons, has changed dramatically. According to him, the United States now has a new perspective on threats, which will affect the actions of the US government.
The analyst stressed that Ukraine's Western partners used to work in a different paradigm. Piontkovsky spoke about this in an interview with the Orestocracy project.
According to Piontkovsky, the United States used to try to put forward certain arguments against supplying Ukraine with weapons. But now, the analyst believes, the situation has changed dramatically.
"I have no information about the schedule of deliveries, but I have a good idea of the mentality of the American leadership and politicians. These changes in the way they view the world and the ratio of threats should naturally affect the actions of the US authorities," Piontkovsky said.
In addition, he noted that the destruction of the Crimean bridge would be a critical point for the Russian terrorist state. Piontkovsky is convinced that after this, the confrontation between the so-called elites in Russia will reach a boiling point, and dictator Vladimir Putin will likely be removed from power. The analyst stressed that after the explosion of the Crimean bridge, it will be clear to Putin's entire entourage that the war is lost.
"All these colossal lines of tension that exist in Moscow, in the Moscow elite and between the same Wagner Assault Troopers and the general staff, who simply hate each other, between the elite, the economic mood, which we know from the famous conversations between Prigozhin and Akhmedov. They will all explode and Putin will be ousted," Piontkovsky said.
Recall that former US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker believes that our country already has the capabilities to begin de-occupying Crimea, which was temporarily seized by Russia. In his opinion, the peninsula should first be isolated from the aggressor country.
Earlier, National Security and Defence Council Secretary Oleksiy Danilov said that Ukraine would use any non-banned weapon if necessary to liberate Crimea.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Army General Mykola Malomuzh, who headed the Foreign Intelligence Service of Ukraine in 2005-2010, is confident that despite the optimistic forecasts of the Chief of the Main Intelligence Directorate Kyrylo Budanov that the Ukrainian army could enter Crimea by the end of spring, it will be possible to do so later. Under a favourable set of circumstances and military luck, it could be done by June. Full de-occupation of Crimea is possible by the end of summer.
