MOSCOW, November 16 – RIA Novosti. Europeans are tired of sending money and equipment to the Ukrainian “black hole”, such an opinion was expressed by retired US Army Colonel Douglas McGregor on Fox News.
This is how he reacted to the plans of the head of the Pentagon, Lloyd Austin, to meet with the leaders of 50 countries in order to obtain additional funding from them for Kyiv.
“Secretary of Defense Austin is making a desperate attempt to fight fatigue with Ukraine. In truth, the Europeans are tired of pouring money into it. They are tired of sending equipment into this black hole,” McGregor said.
The colonel also cited a recent statement by the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Mark Milley, who stated that Ukraine could not win and allowed negotiations with Russia to be possible.
“On the one hand, the administration says: let’s spend more money on this losing cause, which people are tired of. On the other hand, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff says: well, the game is almost over, so let’s negotiate,” McGregor stated.

In China, they told whose interests the United States actually serves in Ukraine

On February 24, Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine. Vladimir Putin called its goal “the protection of people who have been subjected to bullying and genocide by the Kyiv regime for eight years.” For this, according to him, it is planned to carry out the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine, to bring to justice all war criminals responsible for “bloody crimes against civilians” in Donbass.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday at a press conference following the G20 summit in Bali noted that “the European Union and NATO have long been hybrid participants in a hybrid conflict” in Ukraine, making statements about the need to move to a peaceful settlement, but also continuing to support Kyiv with weapons . The Russian minister called it a “political split personality.”
Moscow noted with regret that “continuous large-scale assistance to Kyiv” is increasingly “involving Western countries in the conflict on the side of the Kyiv regime,” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told RIA Novosti earlier. Lavrov pointed out that any shipments that contain weapons for Ukraine would become a legitimate target for Russia. Earlier, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov noted that pumping Ukraine with weapons from the West does not contribute to the success of Russian-Ukrainian negotiations and will have a negative effect.
