The U.S. intelligence report: Russia will continue to put pressure on Ukraine to delay evrointegratsii

Despite serious problems in the economy, in 2016, Moscow will continue an aggressive influence on Ukraine with the purpose of inhibition of its European integration, and will try to widen the circle of allies among neighbors in the Eurasian region. On 9 February, said in his report during the meeting of the Committee on the Armed forces of the United States Senate Director of National intelligence James Clapper, UKRINFORM reported.

«Events in Ukraine have intensified visible intentions of Moscow to increase its presence in the region to prevent the possible change of regimes in former Soviet republics, as well as to accelerate the transition to a multipolar world in which Russia would be the undisputed hegemon in Eurasia», — stated in the report of the chief of Nacrisferi USA.

Therefore, he said, «Moscow will continue to seek greater regional integration, to increase the pressure on neighboring States to follow the example of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, and joined the Moscow-led Eurasian economic Union».

Despite the economic slowdown in Russia, the Kremlin does not leave intentions to use hard foreign policy in 2016, stated Clapper. He stressed that concealed Russia’s use of military and paramilitary forces in Ukraine «continues to be alarming» in neighboring Russia countries, including NATO allies.

«The level of violence in Eastern Ukraine has decreased, but Moscow’s aims in Ukraine regarding keeping long-term influence on Kiev and the frustration of attempts to integrate Ukraine in Western institutions, obviously, will remain unchanged in 2016», — said the head of US National intelligence.

We will remind, the forecast of the American private intelligence analysis company Stratfor stated that the war in the Donbass will not end in 2016, although fighting in the region will be less intense.
