Despite Ukraine’s pleas, West united against no-fly zone

By

As the death toll climbs in Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has been pleading with Western nations for a no-fly zone above Ukraine. But NATO and the United States have denied that request.

“Basically, a no-fly zone, if people understood what it means, it means World War III,” Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) told ABC. “It means starting World War III.”

Politico reported a compromise has been suggested which would entail a no-fly zone over the agreed upon humanitarian escape routes. In an open letter, more than two dozen foreign policy experts said the partial no-fly zone wouldn’t be there to attack Russian forces, but to avert and deter Russian bombardment that would result in massive loss of Ukrainian lives.”

 

Take sot- Zelenskyy

<<”We repeat every day, close the sky over Ukraine.”>>

Annie Andersen AS UKRAINE’S PRESIDENT BEGS THE WEST TO ESTABLISH A NO-FLY ZONE.. U-S LEADERS ARE SAYING NO.

TAKE SOT- MARCO RUBIO

<<“Basically, a no-fly zone, if people understood what it means, it means World War 3. It means starting world war 3.”>>

Annie Andersen: ELECTED LEADERS HESITATE BECAUSE ESTABLISHING ONE WOULD BE CONVEYED AS THE U-S ENTERING INTO THE WAR.

TAKE SOT- PUTIN

<<“Any move in this direction will be viewed as a participation in the armed conflict.”>>

Annie Andersen: THAT’S BECAUSE TO SET UP A NO-FLY ZONE.. NATO, WHICH INCLUDES AMERICA, WOULD HAVE TO DESTROY RUSSIA’S AIR DEFENSE…

AND THEN TO ENFORCE IT.. NATO WOULD HAVE TO SHOOT DOWN PLANES that  VIOLATE IT. 

THE MOVE WOULD PUT U.S. FORCES IN DIRECT CONFLICT WITH THE RUSSIANS.

TAKE SOT- LINDA THOMAS-GREENFIELD, UN AMBASSADOR

<<“Pres. Biden has been very, very clear that American troops will not be put on the ground or in the air to escalate this war and make this an American war against the Russians..”>>

Annie Andersen: UKRAINE’S PRESIDENT ACKNOWLEDGED THE RISKS OF A NO-FLY ZONE BUT SAYS THE U-S SHOULD STEP IN.

TAKE SOT- ZELENSKYY- HAS ENGLISH SPEAKING OVER IT

<<THEY NEED TO BE SHOT DOWN. YOU NEED TO PRESERVE LIVES./”I’m sure that the brave American soldiers who would be shooting it down knowing that it is flying towards the students—I’m sure that they had no doubt in doing so.”>>

Annie Andersen: BUT NOW.. SOMETHING THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN OFTEN HERE IN D-C… A POSSIBLE COMPROMISE.

A PARTIAL NO-FLY ZONE.

A LETTER SIGNED BY MORE THAN TWO DOZEN FOREIGN POLICY EXPERTS.. CALLS FOR A NO-FLY ZONE OVER THE AGREED UPON HUMANITARIAN ESCAPE ROUTES.

THE LETTER SAYS  THIS WOULDN’T BE TO ATTACK RUSSIA, BUT  “to avert and deter Russian bombardment that would result in massive loss of Ukrainian lives.”

BUT THIS WOULD STILL NEED BIDEN’S SUPPORT… AND AS IT COULD MEAN SHOOTING DOWN RUSSIAN  PLANES.. IT ISN’T EXPECTED THE PRESIDENT WILL SUPPORT IT
