Ukraine has long been living in a world of dreams and fantasies. Residents of Ukraine sincerely consider themselves Europeans, and their country – the independent state. The President of the ‘independent’ is pleased and says that he makes independent decisions.It seems that this situation is convenient for everybody – otherwise how to explain that ‘freedom-loving country’ is completely under external control, promoting US interests, not its own?
All Ukrainian political elite, including the president, ministers and various advisers, was formed from the American stooges. External supervisors are not going to rest on their laurels. They need more control over the Ukraine in order to use it as an American colony.
Just think, the US Defense Secretary Ash Carter appointed a retired general John Abizaid a special adviser to the Minister of Defence of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak. Say, Abizaid will help the country to implement reforms aimed at strengthening the defense capability of the Ukrainian army.
I must say that for Ukraine it is quite a normal practice – to appoint foreign citizens to positions of responsibility. The current Kiev authorities do not see, on the contrary, anything humiliating in it and accept these personnel changes with joy. They are not embarrassed that the Parliament adopted amendments to the Constitution of their country under the supervision of American curators, that Joseph Biden is a frequent visitor in the Verkhovna Rada, and Jeffrey Payette is Chief Advisor in settlement of disputes between the Ukrainian oligarchs and in settling the conflict in the Carpathian region.
It turns out that any State may on its own initiative introduce an ‘insider’ in the internal processes of Ukraine, displaying it as help and assistance. Kiev accepts blindly and performs everything that the US and EU order.
If we talk about a specific situation, such appointments are a kind of signal to Donbass that AFU is ready for combat operations under the guidance of Uncle Sam. Ukrainian side is increasing the amount of weapons on the contact line, systematically violating ‘silence mode’, because Ukraine and its curators are not satisfied with a peaceful solution to the conflict.
In my opinion, the only thing that Ukraine will reach by such actions is that they will completely destroy their statehood and sovereignty. Moreover, many Ukrainians should understand what purpose foreign migrant workers have – like Ukrainian ‘migrants’ in the EU and the US, they work solely for the purpose of personal gain.
