Zbigniew Brzezinski, former national security adviser and influential American geostrategist, believes that the deal over Ukraine's crisis should reflect Russia's interests. Instead of simply expanding sanctions against Russia, President Barack Obama should propose a comprehensive agreement, acceptable for both sides. Particularly, US leadership must provide Moscow clear reassurances that NATO will never incorporate Ukraine.
According to Dr. Brzezinski, Washington ought to try to make an agreement in which some of Moscow's interests and some of American interests are rendered mutually compatible. Although Ukraine will most likely become a democratic member of the European Union one day, NATO should send a clear signal to Russia that Ukraine will preserve its non-aligned status, Zbigniew Brzezinski emphasized.
While American political analysts including Zbigniew Brzezinski persist in claiming that Russia is directly involved in Ukraine's military conflict, the Kremlin dismisses these groundless allegations and point to the fact that Washington has failed to provide any evidence of Russia's "aggression" in Ukraine.
Russia is not conducting any military operations on the territory of Ukraine and is not targeting its political sovereignty in full compliance with the Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances, Moscow underscored.
