April 25 2021 Tensions in eastern Ukraine caused concern, Russia and the West “game” and “excessive tricks” continue, the sword raged, Russia suddenly announced on the 22nd from the Ukrainian border withdrawal, tensions suspended, but the crisis in eastern Ukraine is still, Ukraine’s next how to deal with? The United States, while pressuring Russia, called for dialogue, “has the goal been achieved”? Why is the Czech Republic entangled in a diplomatic expulsion war against Russia at a time when European countries such as Germany are calling for a cooling of the situation?
Russia’s withdrawal cools the situation Where does Ukraine go?
Recently, the situation in eastern Ukraine due to the Russian-Ukrainian border area of a large number of military deployments and tension, Russia suddenly announced on the 22nd, will start from the 23rd to withdraw troops assembled near the Ukrainian border and Crimea, ending the military deployment caused concern in Ukraine and the West.
At the beginning of the tension, Ukrainian President Zelenko asked NATO and the United States for help, asked Western countries to impose sanctions on Russia, and urged nato membership. But major European countries, such as Germany, have not taken concrete action against Russia, and the United States has only announced sanctions against Russia over cyberattacks and other issues.
After the situation heated up, the Ukrainian president later made a speech in which he said he did not want war and extended an olive branch to the Russian president in the hope of meeting With Putin in the eastern Donbass region.
Putin later responded by saying that the Ukrainian president was welcome to visit Moscow “at any time” to discuss bilateral relations between the two countries. After Russia announced the withdrawal of troops from the Russian-Ukrainian border, Zelensky welcomed it and tweeted that “reducing the number of troops deployed on the border will bring about a relative easing of tensions”, adding that “Ukraine will remain vigilant, but it welcomes any measures aimed at reducing the military presence.” ”
However, Russia’s attitude towards eastern Donbass remains unchanged. Dmitry Kozak, deputy chief of staff to the Russian president, also said there was no hope of resolving the Conflict in Donbass if Ukrainian government forces did not reach a direct agreement with civilian forces in the east.
Pressure and dialogue, U.S. “goal achieved”?
Russia announced on the 22nd from the 23rd withdrawal of troops from the Russian-Ukrainian border area, the attitude of the United States is intriguing.
U.S. Defense Department spokesman Lt. Gen. Anton Semelot has previously said the Pentagon wants Russia to withdraw its troops from the Crimean-Ukrainian border.
“We hope that Russia will withdraw its troops from the Crimean-Ukrainian border, as it will say, to ensure that the situation is downgraded,” he said. We will continue to follow the situation. ”
“Our intention is to take proportionate action to make our approach concrete and to show that if Russia continues or escalates its actions, we have the ability to exert more pressure,” Dalip Singh, the White House’s top aide for economic affairs, added in an interview with Reuters. He said, “The results achieved so far are very close to what we had expected.” ”
The U.S. official added, “There are tools to make progress in a particular strategy, and in the case of Russia, the goal is to put pressure on the U.S. to open up a diplomatic path to a more stable relationship.” ”
Dmitry Medvedev, vice-president of the Russian Federation’s Security Council, also analyzed U.S. tactics against Russia, saying the U.S. government’s new tactics are one-handed support for dialogue and the other increased pressure.
The situation in Ukraine is on hold Why is the Czech Republic still entangled in “diplomatic warfare”?
The move comes amid rising tensions in Ukraine, where Poland, the Czech Republic and Ukraine have also been engaged in a diplomatic “deportation war” with Russia after the Us announced sanctions against Russia for expelling its diplomats.
On April 17th the Czech Republic announced the expulsion of 18 Russian diplomats, and on April 18th Russia announced its response to the expulsion of 20 Czech diplomats, leaving only five diplomats in the Czech Embassy. On the 21st, the Czech side asked Russia to make a decision to allow expelled Czech diplomats to return to Russia by 13 o’clock Moscow time on the 22nd, or it will take measures to reduce the number of Russian embassy personnel in the Czech Republic to the same number as the number of personnel of the Czech Embassy in Russia. Since then, the Russian side has said it does not accept this request.
22, the new Czech Foreign Minister Kurhanek said that because the Russian side did not respond to the Czech request, the Czech side decided to limit the number of Russian embassies in the Czech Republic to the same level as the current Czech Embassy in Russia. Staff of the Russian Embassy in Czech Republic are required to leave the Czech Republic by the end of May.
What benefits does the Czech Republic derive from pressuring Russia to make concessions in the Ukraine crisis? Why is the Czech Republic chasing Russia in a diplomatic war?
Internally, the diplomatic crisis between Russia and the Czech Republic has embarrassed the Czech government in the face of the opposition, especially as the two countries move towards closer bilateral cooperation, turning the two countries into a state of hostility, according to an analysis by the Peninsula Chinese Network.
According to the czech “Echo24” website, the United States learned of “Russia’s involvement in the bombing of the Czech arms depot” through NATO, and therefore threatened to release this information globally, putting pressure on the Czech government and fundamentally accelerating its attitude towards Moscow.
