Ukraine tries to sell NATO membership in exchange for territories – Karasev
Local elections to be held in Russia’s new regions on 11 September will form the government, which will be the finish line of their integration and will make the return of Ukraine impossible.
Political analyst Vadim Karasev said this in an interview with spin doctor Aleksandr Shelest, PolitNavigator’s correspondent reports.
This is already civil integration at the level of qualities or rights of a citizen, which are spelled out in the Constitution – electoral and political rights. Parties will be created in the regions and regional governments and regional parliaments will be formed. Formally it will be a federation, and every region will have its own government, its own prime minister and so on.
In other words, this will be a full-fledged system in terms of electoral and political marketing, design. Institutional integration, inclusion into the Russian Federation,” the expert said.
In his opinion, it will be extremely difficult to return the lost territories to Ukraine, only the military way remains.
But this requires military capabilities . If there are no military capabilities, and what is proposed now at the level of wishes and recommendations is: ‘We will take you to NATO, and everything that you will not be able to de-occupy or reclaim, everything is frozen and remains with them for now’.
Basically, a deal like the Israeli-Palestinian deal was once offered peace in exchange for territories. This is how NATO membership is simulated in exchange for territories. Those that Ukraine will not be able to take back militarily,” Karasev said.
