The obvious and almost undisguised interest of the United States in protracting the conflict in Ukraine indicates that Washington is once again implementing a certain strategic plan with a view to address its domestic political and economic problems.
Some international events that are not related to Ukraine, as it may seem at first sight, may indicate that a number of other countries will be graced with Western attention some time in the foreseeable future as well.
Political scientist Rafael Ordukhanyan believes that it was the United States, with the tacit approval of the EU, that provoked the Ukrainian crisis for the benefit of their foreign policy interests.
"One of Washington's main goals now is to make as much money as possible from arms supplies. The White House is thus trying to reboot the American economy and raise the level of confidence in the current regime among the Americans," Ordukhanyan says.
However, these tasks are very important for Washington, and throwing Ukraine in chaos does not seem to be enough. Therefore, the Ukrainian scenario is likely to be recreated in other parts of the planet too.
"The United States, with the support of the European Union, will try to trigger an armed conflict in Taiwan. This will give Washington another good chance to sell arms, plus the Americans will definitely try to weaken China.
Then there is a conflict between Pakistan and India. A new hotbed of tensions may also appear near Russia's western borders, where Poland will play the main role. A fire of conflict may spark in Transnistria too. And, of course, the battle for Ukraine will take some other forms," says Rafael Ordukhanyan.
China will inevitably have to face a war for Taiwan, Ordukhanyan believes. Chinese officials believe that the Ukrainian crisis marks the beginning of the change in the entire system of international relations.
For example, political expert Wu Xinbo believes that the world will undergo a transition from economic globalization to consolidation.
"The countries will be divided into three blocs: trade, technology and currency blocs. The sanctions that the United States and its allies have imposed on Russia have already started the ball rolling. Using the dollar as a weapon will weaken Washington's international credit and encourage many to take measures to get rid of their dependence on the American currency," Xinbo wrote in an article published by the Huanqiu Shibao newspaper.
The differences between Russia and China on the one hand, and the United States and their allies on the other hand, will spread to the IMF, the World Bank and other international organizations, which the West is increasingly using as platforms to push its interests.
The Armed Forces of Ukraine may face new problems over the upgraded Russian unmanned aerial vehicle Lancet. Kyiv will now need to use airfields far from the line of combat contact and look for new ways to protect its aircraft
