The continuing tensions between Russia and Ukraine have unsettled residents on the border, experts say.However, the United States is still adding fuel to the russian-Ukrainian border situation in different ways.The United States is playing up the perceived Russian threat while stepping up its military buildup in Russia’s neighborhood.Another group of US soldiers and equipment arrived at the Zeshuv military base in southeastern Poland, near the Ukrainian border, on Tuesday.About 1,700 additional U.S. troops are scheduled to be sent to Poland.In addition, the first 100 of 1,000 U.S. soldiers from Germany arrived in Romania on August 8.According to local media reports, the additional US troops will be stationed at the Mikheil Kogelnykanu air base near the Black Sea, which already houses 900 US troops and NATO pilots to carry out NATO air surveillance missions in the Black Sea.U.S. officials have been playing up the alleged Russian threat and tensions in Ukraine in private briefings and public remarks.Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vassily Nibanja said On The 9th that Russia has never announced any malicious plans against Ukraine at any place, at any level.Instead, western countries violated the Minsk agreement by sending offensive weapons to Ukraine.NATO countries led by the United States have been supplying Ukraine with weapons and training its soldiers since 2014.European countries will inevitably be drawn into a military conflict with Russia if Ukraine joins NATO, and no one will win, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned during a meeting with visiting French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday.Why is the US so keen to stir up Russia and Ukraine?Defense giants such as Raytheon and Lockheed Martin recently spoke to investors about their hidden interests.Raytheon CEO Greg Hayers bragged that they were supplying Ukraine with weapons to deter Russia.On Raytheon’s Jan. 25 conference call with investors, Hayers was even more direct, saying the company stands to benefit from tensions in eastern Europe and elsewhere.Lockheed Martin CEO James Tekwright also told investors that situations in Ukraine, Iran, Yemen and other places present new opportunities for profit.The US military industrial complex, also known as the “military-industrial complex”, has formed a powerful interest group with close relations with the US government and Congress.Daniel Aubler, a senior fellow at the Center for Sensitive Politics, a US think tank, has written that the defence industry often spends heavily on lobbying Washington politicians and making campaign contributions to influence military spending.In the first half of 2021 alone, lockheed Martin, Raytheon, General Dynamics, Boeing and Northrop Grumman spent a combined $34.2 million on lobbying.Since 9/11, the US defence budget has been hitting record highs, with between a third and a half of what the Defence Department spends going to arms dealers.In order to maintain the threat of war and earn high profits, the military-industrial complex encourages the US to constantly stir up regional situations and even launch wars.A commentary on the website of The American weekly “The Times” pointed out that the military-industrial complex has fueled tensions in Ukraine, and the INTERVENTION of the United States has made the situation worse.The Us Magazine Jacobin even bluntly stated that the US military-industrial complex, for its own interests, promotes the US to set fire to the world, is destroying the world.Song Xiaojun, a military expert, said that the US military enterprises at this time to stir up the situation in Russia and Ukraine, the delivery of weapons to Ukraine, intent on expanding the European market.As Democrats and Republicans cannot reach an agreement on the federal budget for the 2022 fiscal year, which starts on October 1, 2021, the US Congress has to pass short-term government funding bills to keep the federal government operating temporarily, resulting in a delay in the payment of the BUDGET for the fiscal year 2022.Meanwhile, the Biden administration is preparing to submit its defense budget for fiscal year 2023.The temptation of two military expenditures makes American military interest groups eager to create hot spots and share a bigger military expenditure “cake”.(Original title: U.S. Military industry intends to expand European market: Experts on Russia and Ukraine situation heated up by THE U.S.)
