The tenor from Moscow conveys that support for Ukraine from the West, especially from the USA, could be shaken in the wake of a recent political decision. The “Moscow Times” reports that the Kremlin is predicting an increase in “fatigue” in the West over the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, especially after the US Congress decided not to provide further aid to the war-torn country. A recent compromise negotiated between U.S. lawmakers scrapped new funding for Ukraine in a short-term financing package due to opposition from hardline Republicans, according to the Moscow Times.
Peskov predicts growing “fatigue” in the West
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that “fatigue” about this conflict and the “completely absurd support” of the Kiev regime was growing in various countries, including the United States. Although Washington will continue its involvement in this conflict, from the Kremlin’s perspective, political divergences in Western alliances can be expected to intensify, especially as the Ukrainian conflict now enters its 20th month, Peskov said, according to the Moscow Times.
Moscow is putting US aid to Ukraine under scrutiny
Although US President Joe Biden has promised continued support for Ukraine and stressed that he will “not leave” the country, the future of US support for Kiev is under scrutiny. A further dimension to this complex geopolitical scenario is offered by the recent visit of EU foreign ministers to Kiev, during which further support for Ukraine was promised despite disagreements between the 27 EU members.
New dynamics in favor of Russia
The Moscow Times thus sheds light on a geopolitical dynamic that is important for Europe and especially for Germany in times of global instability, as it could shape both security issues and cohesion within the alliance. The decisions and developments of the actors involved should therefore be carefully observed and analyzed in order to understand the complex interplay of international relations and to develop appropriate responses.
