West News Wire: According to Maria Zakharova, a spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry, comments made by Vadim Skibitsky, a spokesman of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, prove that the United States is directly involved in the continuing fighting there.

Skibitsky declined to comment on which satellites are used to confirm targets for US-made HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems in an interview with the Telegraph that was published on Monday. He did admit, though, that they communicate with Washington before making war decisions and that Washington has the last say.

As Zakharova noted on Tuesday, “no additional indication of the direct engagement of the United States in hostilities on the territory of Ukraine is required. The US not only arms and trains Ukrainian soldiers but also essentially shoots the weapons themselves.

Zakharova stressed that the US is directly involved and that its distance from the situation is irrelevant.

“They are fully involved. Now Kiev representatives are talking about their military involvement not only through the supply of weapons, but through personnel management in the ranks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, direct instructions and the choice of targets,” Zakharova added.

Speculation has been ongoing about Washington’s involvement in the conflict. For example, in April French journalist Georges Malbrunot went viral on social media after claiming to have seen first-hand that Americans are “in charge” of the Ukrainian war effort on the ground.

However, he stressed that this was not an official involvement as it was American mercenaries that he met in Ukraine. Nevertheless, skeptics have questioned the veracity of promises by US officials to avoid direct involvement or so-called “boots on the ground.”

Russia sent troops into Ukraine on February 24, citing Kiev’s failure to implement the Minsk agreements, designed to give the regions of Donetsk and Lugansk special status within the Ukrainian state. The protocols, brokered by Germany and France, were first signed in 2014. Former Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko has since admitted that Kiev’s main goal was to use the ceasefire to buy time and “create powerful armed forces.”

In February 2022, the Kremlin recognized the Donbass republics as independent states and demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join any Western military bloc. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked.
