Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
starting such supplies could be interpreted as Russia's withdrawal from the Minsk agreements of which it is a guarantor

US federal government has one objective, stimulate moribund domestic industry by profiteering from war. Leadership of the EU are no different as demonstrated most profoundly by abandoning the JCPOA and every.single ruin created by their so-called interventions for democracy, "women[,] and minorities". And that M.O. most certainly includes the EU "association agreement" of 2013, "guaranteed" by $15B IMF loan with "structural adjustment" conditions.

Set aside internal inconsistencies of NATO member (US client states) allegiance, because US, UK do not international law; US, UK do not honor treaties; they make "their own reality", as is the custom among one or more psychopaths.

US State Dept's PR campaign in anglo-american press--since retreat from AFGHANISTAN in a PANDEMIC--is not "pre-text", but absolute prologue to another in a series of US-orchestrated proxy wars. In this psychotic break, Donbas, UKRAINE, is the theater in which NATO's special forces instruct Kiev's standing army in how to annihilate the irregular armed force of SE provinces--which it ought be recalled, mobilized after Ukraine's AUTONOMOUS REGIONAL GOV of Crimea employed a political solution to secede from political conflict in UKRAINE over Yanukovych and Poroshenko vacilating agreements to IMF-EU "association"--not NAZI unification or RU oppression.

This year, US-NATO concerted, rhetorical, diplomatic incoherence is a tactical ploy. It is not RU who needs time to "amass" resources for invasion of UKRAINE, it is the US. Which has been preparing the comical naïf Zelensk(i)y's regime with armament to resume hostilities that contravene Minsk cease fire, to which RU, FR, DE and UA are signatories, not US.

RU need do nothing to maintain the integrity of its government's geo-political position as peace keeper in this matter or JCPOA. In fact, US fed's diplomatic plan merely is to produce enough casualties in cynical experiment in human rights to trigger RU "intervention" where EU allies, not even under color of UN, balk.

The tragedy of allegiance to the wrong "super power" is manifold. As sure as the sun will rise, we, assets of  the deranged political economy expressed as representative democracy, we will retire in comfort with a belief that nothing can be done to arrest captains of this juggernaut of free trade, open skies, open doors, open seas, and besserwissen.
