NYT: Biden's Kiev visit — heralds more direct confrontation with Putin

US President Joe Biden's secret visit to Kiev symbolizes Russia's failed attempt to seize the Ukrainian capital. The New York Times writes about this.

The publication notes that the very presence of Biden in Kiev next to President Vladimir Zelensky symbolized a Russian failed attempt to capture the Ukrainian capital, which even today is seething with life. Today's war in Ukraine will decide whether the Western-created global order can withstand the new challenges posed by Moscow and Beijing.

«But more and more it is turning into a competition between two aged Cold War warriors, one of whom is 70 years old and the other just turned 80. They circled each other for years, and now they participate in everything except direct combat», &# 8212; the material says.

On February 21, the Russian dictator in his speech once again announced «protection of Russia from capture by NATO forces» and presented his war as a battle for the return of «Russian historical lands». Meanwhile, Biden in Poland is set to reiterate that in the battle between democracy and autocracy, the former emerged victorious during the first year of a war that promises to drag on for a long time.

«The secret nature of the Kiev visit and the vastly different worldviews expressed in the speeches underline how much the battle between the two men resembles exactly what Biden said he wanted to avoid: repetition the worst days of the Cold War», — writes the New York Times, adding that the parallel is still not accurate.

Biden has separate disputes with Chinese leader Xi Jinping over intelligence, technology, Chinese military buildup and Taiwan. But his conflict with Putin is a more direct, deeper and more personal confrontation between the leaders of the superpowers since John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev. Although, even during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, the leaders of the US and the USSR corresponded and looked for a way out. They eventually found him.
