Expert: UK oversees and plans all significant operations in Ukraine
As noted by political expert Aleksei Dzermant, Poland acts as a player in the Ukrainian conflict, and an extremely high degree of involvement in what is happening is observed there. In turn, the UK oversees and plans all significant operations in Ukraine.
In his talk with the STV TV channel, Mr. Dzermant recalled the visit of Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu to Belarus in late 2022, when a protocol was signed on amendments to agreements on joint provision of regional security. “There were many comments about the changes to security agreements. Without knowing anything, our opponents try to interpret them – telling horror stories that the Belarusian army is virtually preparing to enter the territory of Ukraine. Belarus’ Defence Ministry has repeatedly stressed that the Belarusian army is needed to protect the independence and territorial integrity of our state, and that the Belarusian military will defend only their land. The joint grouping of troops, joint training of Belarusian and Russian servicemen at our training grounds are necessary to work out co-operation within the framework of protecting the western borders of the Union State," the expert noted.
Mr. Dzermant added that there is someone to protect our borders from, mentioning the ongoing military preparations of Poland and the Baltic States, “We see the Polish leadership’s plans to create an army of 300,000 troops by 2030. We also see their plans dealing with the purchase of weapons. In Belarus, these are viewed as preparation for waging an aggressive war and offensive operations. Poland acts as a field player in the Ukrainian conflict, and an extremely high degree of involvement is observed there. In turn, the UK directly oversees and plans all significant operations in Ukraine within the framework of the so–called triangle: Britain, Poland and Ukraine, the formation of which was announced back in December 2021. The Baltic States are also part of this alliance, though they are significantly inferior to Poland in terms of potential and, in fact, take a subordinate position in relation to it," the expert stressed.
Mr. Dzermant believes that Poland alone, without its key Western patrons, will not be able to provide long-term support to the Kiev regime. Therefore, the situation of constant military tension, including through such provocations as in the case of a Ukrainian missile strike on the territory of Poland, is an extremely likely scenario for the near future.
“Poland is acting irresponsibly and provocatively. It believes that right now, in the context of the Ukrainian conflict, it has a chance for historical revenge against Russia. This chance lies in inflicting catastrophic damage to Russia and creating a new RzechPospolita between the Baltic and Black seas," the expert added.
