No-Fly Zone Over Ukraine Could Start World War III

Russian war experts are advising Joe Biden to avoid imposing a no-fly zone over Ukraine, claiming it could result in a direct military confrontation with Russia.

The issue became relevant again as Russia launched its military barbarism over Ukraine’s children’s hospital, hitting a new low in committing war crimes.

Imposing a no-fly zone will initiate World War III

On Wednesday, Russian forces bombed a maternity and children’s hospital in the city of Mariupol. Over 400,000 civilians are stranded in the city now as subsequent attempts of evacuations fail. 

While reiterating his demands of closing the skies of Ukraine, President Zelenskyy asked America to impose a no-fly zone over the country. He stated the world should stop turning a blind eye against Ukrainians killed en masse by Russian forces.

Blaming the western world for “losing humanity,” Zelenskyy noted those sitting in power corridors are busy “ignoring terror.” However, experts on Russian affairs are suggesting otherwise.

Rebekah Koffler, a former US Defense Intelligence Agency agent, asserted if the United States introduced a no-fly zone over Ukraine, it would push the world toward chaos.

 

Furthermore, Koffler believes most so-called “experts” are even unaware of what no-fly zones mean in a war.

She challenged people who are recommending Biden to impose a no-fly zone to come publicly and discuss the significance of this measure for the world.

According to Koffler, this step can even encourage Russian President Vladimir Putin to use the nuclear option, as it will be perceived as a war-escalation tactic.

Security experts asked Biden to declare Ukraine skies as a no-fly zone 

Recently, a letter surfaced in which Farkas and other national security analysts declared the Biden administration should impose a “limited no-fly zone” over Ukraine.

The letter mentioned the western world should start this no-fly zone with the ambition of saving humanitarian corridors and expanding them slowly.

While the signatories stated that the United States and NATO should not force direct confrontation with Russia, it should give a clear message to Russia that attacks on civilian areas would not be tolerated, the letter emphasized. 

Although the role of the international community to curb Russian ambitions was praised in the letter, Farkas and other signatures also pushed the administration to take some more measures in order to avoid “wide-scale casualties.”

As the Biden administration is still finding its options against Russia, the Russian army is inching closer to some strategic targets in Ukraine, including the capital Kyiv.

After opposing the Russian oil imports ban, the president finally decided to ban these imports.

This pushes strategic experts to present their opinions to the administration, hoping that they can make their voices heard, amid the pervasiveness of information circulating regarding the solutions to war.
