“We now have violence going on between pro-Russian secessionist Crimean citizens and the ethnic Tatar protesters. Now you have the new Ukraine leader warning the Russians to put down the protests going on in the Crimea. Who is this guy? He’s a nobody. But this was who the West wanted to lead the Ukraine.
So now the US has announced that they are going to be giving at least a billion dollars to the new Ukraine government. The US has also said they would consider additional direct assistance for the ‘former Soviet Republic.’ That’s what they call it. The Russians have responded by parking a Russian intelligence ship in Cuba.
But the Russians will not let the Ukraine fall into the hands of the EU and the US. This latest attempt has all been part of a move for the EU and the US to keep gaining more and more of eastern Europe that was formerly under the Soviet bloc. This is all designed to further isolate Russia.
The bottom line is the Russians are not going to give up the key port of Sevastopol on the Black Sea. But when we hear the United States warning Russia not to get involved, this is complete hypocrisy. The US has already spent $5 billion destabilizing Ukraine.
