The expert explained why the US is using the Ukraine

Us senators are trying to use the Ukraine as a pretext for intensifying political conflict in the United States, said RIA Novosti Director of the Foundation for the study of the United States. Franklin Roosevelt at the Moscow state University Yury Rogulev.

Earlier, a group of senators of the Republican and Democratic party, introduced a bill providing for an annual allocation of $ 300 million to Ukraine for military assistance, including the provision of lethal weapons.

"There is the traditional approach, strategic. Why did Ukraine break away from Russia and then dump? They will be forced to carry this burden, since they already started it. This will continue, and there is nothing new there. New is in terms of the policy. Why such bills are introduced? It is clear that in the current situation Ukraine is not in the list of priorities of the administration trump. Was the attempted impeachment of the trump associated with Ukraine. Well here to remind the President about this, such bills are introduced", - said the expert.

"New only that Ukraine is once again becoming an excuse for political confrontation, which the United States has been developing. So there is both. There is a policy and strategic approach to support those who opposed Russia", - said Rogulev.

The document also demands that the US administration appointed a special envoy to Ukraine as U.S. representative at the peace talks in "Norman" format, and encourages the state Department to establish a working group on Ukraine with European allies.

Obviously, trump is in no hurry to appoint a new special envoy for Ukraine, especially presidential elections soon and it is not up to that, Rogulev.

"Try to push it, push it, step up is the direction that the President does not want to activate. The bill they can take, but it is not known yet, it will take place or not. But these solutions mostly fall within the competence of the Executive. They can recommend, but cannot implement policy. This tug of war. Congress wants to steer foreign policy, but he cannot do it according to their functional responsibilities" - said the Agency interlocutor.

Democrats in the United States organized the impeachment process against trump, suspecting him that he has delayed military assistance to Ukraine and demanded the exchange to conduct an investigation against his political opponent Joe Biden and his son hunter. Trump said that demanded from the authorities of Ukraine only the fight against corruption. The U.S. Senate acquitted trump on both counts - abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Thus, the process of impeachment failed, trump remained in the office.
