USA (bbabo.net), - The West's strategy in Ukraine may be adjusted, said Alexei Zudin, a senior lecturer at MGIMO, Russian Foreign Ministry, commenting that US First Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman intends to discuss with European allies the West's further strategy in the conflict in Ukraine. #
“Possible adjustments,” Zudin said on Sputnik radio, “are caused by changing circumstances. Europe is clearly tired of Ukraine. The United States, with the connivance of European governments, essentially turned the countries of Europe into a gigantic rear of the Ukrainian army, with all the ensuing consequences in the form of hardships and various kinds of trouble for these countries. This is a new moment. We know that protests have begun in Europe, and this requires some adjustment in order to neutralize or at least weaken them.
The complexity of Sherman's mission is that at the same time she will have to convince European countries to increase military support for Ukraine, he added.
“From January, a new composition of the US Congress will begin its work, in which the lower house - the House of Representatives - will be controlled by the Republicans. In the United States, there is effectively a bipartisan consensus on military support for Ukraine. But there will be a new nuance, which is that the measures for which the Republicans will be less generous, in any case, the Republicans themselves say so. Therefore, there is an urgent need to redistribute the burden of support between the US and European countries, which will have to increase their share of support. This can become a subject for negotiations,” Alexey Zudin believes.
It is specified that Sherman's trip, which began on December 5, will last until December 11 and includes visits to the UK, Italy, the Vatican, France, Germany and the Czech Republic.
