Speculations swirl about an imminent Ukrainian spring counteroffensive after the UK’s decision to supply the Ukrainian forces with depleted Uranium as Washington is pushing Zelensky to regain lost territories to strengthen its position during future negotiations.
By shipping depleted Uranium ammunition to Ukraine, NATO gave Russia the perfect excuse to ship tactical nuclear weapons to Belarus. President
Putin stated in an interview that Russia had assisted Belarus in converting 10 aircraft so they could carry tactical nuclear warheads and that Russia would begin training pilots to fly the modified aircraft early next month.
While the situation is heading to dangerous escalation, we ask: is there still a possibility for a diplomatic outcome of the Ukraine war or will this escalation lead to direct involvement and World War Three?
Ironically, former US President Donald Trump who comes from a far-right position, at least as the mainstream media portrays him, is calling for peace in Ukraine and vowing to stop World War Three if he is elected.
Trump said, “Either the deep state destroys America or we destroy the deep state.”
