American columnist Stephen Lendman has warned of a nuclear war due to
Washington’s provocative military measures near Russia’s border over the
crisis in Ukraine. “Recently, Washington has been holding military
exercises in eastern Europe, sending thousands of US soldiers, every
equipments, every ammunitions, every weapons to frontline states,
Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, It’s planning new exercises in Poland, in
Romania, in these countries either bordering Russia or very close to
Russia’s border,” Lendman told Press TV on Wednesday. “It has to be
infuriating Russia because it is deliberately provocative,” he added.
The columnist noted that the United States is getting closer to Russia’s
border. “What Washington is doing now pushing further and further east,
stationing thousands of its forces, combat ready troops in eastern
Europe,” he said.

“This is a prescription for east-west
confrontation. They could literally explode into a nuclear war,” Lendman
warned. American government officials said the Pentagon is planning to
send more military equipment to Ukraine, including drones and heavy
armored Humvees. Unnamed White House officials told The Associated Press
that Vice President Joe Biden informed Ukrainian President Petro
Poroshenko about the military assistance in a phone call on Wednesday.
“The situation in Ukraine today is what I call a tinderbox. Washington
has full responsibility for what’s going on. It ousted a democratic
government,” Lendman said. “The country is economically bankrupt. It’s
teetering on collapse and it’s spending millions of dollars every single
day on militarism, well it’s getting this money from the IMF
[International Monetary Fund], from Washington, from other nations
contributing it,” he added.
