"Now the problem here isn't that everybody is delusional. In fact, everybody knows exactly what is happening here. But the problem is one of geopolitical blackmail.

Russia is clearly intent on keeping this conflict simmering until it gets what it wants -- a pliant and obedient Ukraine that is essentially Moscow's client state. And it uses periodic threats of escalation to get the West to play along. And so everybody pretends. And in pretending, everybody plays the Kremlin's game," Whitmore commented in his video.Источник: https://censor.net.ua/en/v403908
