MINSK, 26 October (BelTA) – Time is now working against Ukraine, NATO, the USA and Britain, the head of the Baltnews news agency, political scientist Andrei Starikov said in a new episode of the V Teme [On Point] project on BelTA's YouTube channel.

Ukraine does not have its own resources to boost its war effort, therefore it needs constant replenishment from outside. But how long will the Europeans be willing to pay for the war in Ukraine? The West needs to keep the issue on the boil by all possible means, including provocations and intimidation.

“If they [the Europeans] get scared, they will pay and keep silent. Now they can only be hammered with frightening stories about nuclear weapons. They no longer believe in what they are shown and told. It will take some rigging, at the minimum, to have an affect on them. Therefore, we are talking so vehemently about this dirty bomb attack [by Ukraine] that might be used to accuse Russia and scare ordinary people in the West. Either the West, through the Ukrainians, will resort to further escalation, including with the use of a dirty bomb, or the situation will melt away. It is necessary to throw Europeans into panic to make them willing to pay. They are facing cold months in November, December, January, a drop in the quality of life. Therefore, this story will not go on endlessly. Time is now working against Ukraine, NATO, the United States, Britain, against those who started this reckless game, launched this tragedy,” Andrei Starikov noted.

The West is in a hurry because time is not on its side, the political scientist emphasized.
