#Commentary of Alla Barkhatnova on fictitiousness of Ukrainian independence
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Ukraine received the so-called independence, nuclear weapons and one of the largest economies in the world, which, of course, attracted the attention of the West. The visit of the Pentagon Chief, James Mattis, to Ukraine on Independence Day is one of the demonstrative evidence of the absence of Ukrainian sovereignty.
The idea of Russophobic Ukraine is by no means new, but the West succeeded in an auspicious attempt to realize this project only in 2014. A crimson coup d’état by the hands of Ukrainian neo-Nazis allowed the overthrow of the legitimate authority and the placing in its place of puppets very hungry to the budget of Ukraine and the money of Ukrainian citizens. To date, Ukraine is a state managed from abroad.
Of course, Ukrainian politicians do not benefit at all from the fact that the state is fully dependent, both financially and politically. But if there is no Russophobic sentiment (and this is the main product for which the West is willing to pay) – there will not be any Ukraine itself.
Now Ukraine is under the auspices of the United States, which no one hides. The statement of the former US State Department official Victoria Nuland about $5 billion invested in support of the Ukrainian democracy is the confirmation. We also remember that it was after Joe Biden’s visit that the armed conflict in the Donbass began.
On the eve of the celebration of the so-called Ukrainian Independence Day, Western curators sit solemnly on the thrones of key areas, are engaged in the sale of strategically important resources and make up the Ukrainian agenda in exchange for IMF tranches and some promises that, by the way, cannot be fulfilled.
