Ukraine has always been in the Russian sphere, as today Canada is in the US sphere of influence. Ukraine has been linked to Russia for hundreds of years and is considered to be an essential buffer zone of defense for Russia.
Can you imagine Russia taking over Canada and placing nuclear missiles on the American border?
That is the issue for Russia. Can they allow an American sponsored coup to take over Ukraine and then have NATO deploy its forces on the Russian border?
Could Russia allow its multi-billion dollar Crimea bases to be threatened, jeopardizing Russia’s only water access to the Black Sea, the Balkans, the Mediterranean Sea and the Middle East?
Can Russia allow economic dominance over Ukraine and Russia by the US, the European Union, the IMF, the World Bank and international financiers?
These are the issues at stake in Ukraine.
How Neocons Hillary Clinton and Victoria Nuland seized control of Ukraine and set up a coming confrontation with Russia
Victoria Nuland, assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, who has been the lead U.S. point person for the Ukraine crisis was a deputy director for former Soviet Union affairs under the Bill Clinton administration. Nuland also served as Principal Deputy National Security Advisor to Vice President Cheney and remained under president Obama.
Victoria Nuland comes from what might be called the First Family of Military Interventionists. Her husband, Robert Kagan, is a leading neoconservative who co-founded the Project for the New American Century in 1998 around a demand for “regime change” in Iraq. He is currently a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.
Nuland a protege of Hillary Clinton started her rapid rise as an adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney. Subsequently, she was serially promoted by secretaries of state Hillary Clinton and John Kerry.
Clinton and Nuland see Ukraine as a stepping stone to a confrontation with Russia to bring in a New World Order; with a New Federal Europe counterbalancing East and West.
The real objective of interfering in Ukraine was, right from the start, to install a regime hostile to Moscow.
Carl Gershman, the head of the taxpayer-funded [National Endowment for Democracy] NED, called Ukraine; “the biggest prize” in the effort to topple Russian President Vladimir Putin, who “may find himself on the losing end not just in the near abroad but within Russia itself.”
If Clinton is elected president she has promised a confrontation with Russia: watch to see what becomes of Victoria Nuland.
Hillary and Bill Clinton run the Clinton Foundation, established by the couple. The foundation accepts monetary donations from foreign donors, amassing to billions of dollars. Some of the top donors of the foundation were Ukrainian oligarchs.
One of them, Victor Pinchuk, was a former member of the Ukrainian Parliament and a strong advocate of Neoliberalism in Ukraine. Pinchuk became wealthy during chaotic privatization of large state enterprises after the country’s separation from the Soviet Union.
In return, the Clinton Global Initiative which is a wing of the Clinton Foundation that coordinates charitable projects but does not handle money, made a pledge to Mr. Pinchuk, to train future Ukrainian leaders. Several alumni from this training program are now in the current Ukraine Parliament. The same government that came to power after the bloody coup d’etat.
A recording of a phone call between Nuland and the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt on January 28, 2014, was published on YouTube, proving that the U.S. was already planning who should be in the government after Viktor Yanukovych’s forced resignation. The name Nuland gave in the phone call, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, indeed became the Prime Minister of Ukraine on February 27, 2014, a month after that phone conversation.
Reader Supported News journalist Steve Weisman’s report on how the Clinton led State Department laid the foundation for the regime change in Ukraine is an eye opener.
The Ukraine “revolution” against the Viktor Yanukovych administration began with a journalist on the news channel established by, none other than, the US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt. “Arriving in the Ukrainian capital on August 3 , Pyatt almost immediately authorized a US grant for an online television outlet called Hromadske.TV, which would prove essential to building the Euromaidan street demonstrations against Yanukovych.”
The United States and the European Union have presented the regime change in Ukraine as a flowering of democracy. Conversely, what replaced the ousted government was another authoritarian dictum which included Neo-Nazi Parties such as Svaboda and the Right Sector. Although, Yatsenuyk’s Fatherland Party controls the majority of the posts in the Ukraine’s parliament, and Svoboda Neo-Nazi leader Oleh Tyahnybok was not granted a major cabinet post, members of Svoboda and the Right Sector occupy key positions in the areas of Defense, Law Enforcement, Education and Economic Affairs.
Ukraine Coup timeline
In November 2013 the democratically elected president of Ukraine President Yanuyovch embarrassed the European Union by rejecting its offer to associate with the EU and NATO; in favor of joining Russia’s Common.
By November 29, 2013 protests [organized by Western NGO’s] began in Kiev, as European Commission President Jose Manual Barroso announced that the EU would “not accept Ukraine’s “veto” of the EU invitation.
On December 13, 2013 Assistant US Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasia Victoria
Nuland admitted to a meeting of the International Business Conference sponsored by the US-Ukrainian Foundation NGO; that the US had ‘invested’ more than $5 billion and ‘five years worth of work and preparation” in destabilizing Ukraine and achieving what she called Ukraine’s ‘European aspirations.”
That expenditure was actually to achieve American aspirations to subvert the Ukraine away from Russia towards NATO.
What Nuland did not reveal on December 13 was that her meetings with ‘key Ukrainian stakeholders’ included neo-Nazi Svoboda party leader Oleh Tyahnybok and prime minister wannabe Arsenly Yatsenyuk of the Fatherland Party.
At about the same time Nuland was wooing fascist extremists, Sen. John McCain (R-Az) and Sen. Chris Murphy (D- Conn) shared the stage in Kiev with Tyahnybok offering their support and opposition to the fascists to stage a coup in Ukraine.
There is no doubt that the Svoboda party has its origin in west Ukraine’s historic neo-fascist thugs that fought with Hitler are now aligned with the US as represented by Victoria Nuland.
After extensive western sponsored demonstrations, foreign ministers from Poland, Germany and France visited Kiev on February 20, 2014 and secured President Yanukovych’s agreement that he would accept an interim administration, constitutional reform and new parliamentary and presidential elections.
With no clear sign that EU or US pressure had achieved the desired effect, of coercing Ukraine into the US, EU, NATO orbit; opposition leaders rejected Yanukovych’s compromise of new elections, which would have ended the three month stand-off.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called on the German, French and Polish to stand up and take responsibility for upholding the deal they helped forge and not let “armed extremists” directly threaten Ukrainian sovereignty. Nevertheless on February 21, 2014 At a special summit in Brussels, European foreign ministers agreed to adopt sanctions on Ukraine including visa bans and asset freezes.
The EU decision followed immense pressure from the US; for the European powers to take punitive action against the Ukrainian regime. Washington had already imposed travel bans on 20 leading Ukrainians.
Not content to wait for new elections which they could not win; on February 22, 2014 the foreign backed opposition then staged a coup and demanded the president resign.
After the parliament had recessed and government MPs had gone home; the opposition members of the Ukrainian Parliament held an illegal vote, in an unconstitutional action to oust President Yanukovych and the American backed pro-EU -NATO forces staged a ‘coup’. Yanukovych then fled Kiev in fear for his life.
On March 1, 2014, US VP Biden phoned the illegal coup prime minister Arseniy
Yatsenyuk, congratulating him on his success and reaffirming US support for Ukraine’s ‘territorial integrity.”
What followed was an uprising of Russians in the Crimea which was used by Russia to break the vital Russian bases away from the Ukraine. That in turn inspired uprisings by Russian speaking residents of the provinces of Donetsk and Luhansk .
Since then the US has supported the Ukraine with supplies, while the US Military has recruited many Military Contractors, i.e. mercenaries, who are supporting the Ukraine coup government in the fighting. Russia is accused of [and probably is] supporting the Russian speaker’s demands against Ukraine.
The Eurozone has suffered under the sanctions against Russia and are beginning to chafe under American intimidation.
Now candidate Hillary Clinton is threatening Russian allies Syria and Iran in order to set up a confrontation between the US and Russia for the purpose of panicking people especially in Europe to agree to a New World Order featuring a New Federal Europe, planned of course to be controlled by the US Neocon establishment.
Will Russia react against Ukraine and possibly Georgia [another country desired by NATO] bringing the very world crisis that Hillary and the Neocon’s desire?
NATO leaders admit that Russia could walk across Ukraine in a matter of days, and NATO has no stomach to resist that. NATO is only willing to prevent spill over towards NATO members in Europe and will not try to defend Ukraine.
If Russia does lose patience with the West’s Ukraine and Syria meddling [the Syrian revolution is a made in the West phenomenon], while enduring a massive economic assault from the West, and the attack on its allies in the Middle East: Russia may find it impossible to hold back from taking serious action in Ukraine or elsewhere.
NATO would be forced to back down and cede the Ukraine coup government, which would deal a nearly decisive blow to NATO credibility.
Watch the Syria, Ukraine and Russia situation carefully
A major world crisis is coming quickly, which will bring a New Federal Europe of ten nations together in Europe which will inherit the military assets of the US and NATO in Europe.
The American Neocons will not be able to control this New Europe which will ally with the Islamic nations [except Egypt] and bring the fall of the petro-dollar and the dollar economies.
Far from being an American controlled triumph, the New Europe will spell disaster for the Jewish, American and British peoples, and ultimately for the while world. See our book “Bible Prophecy: Tribulation and Deliverance” available at the Front page or at the Literature page.
