The West and Russia accomplished the dismembering and the economic destruction of Ukraine

European Union Heads of State and Government met at the European Council on 12 February 2015, in Brussels. The main topic were the conflict in Ukraine, counter terrorism and the economic situation. From left to right: Petro Poroshenko, President of Ukraine, Donald Tusk, President of the European Council.

With the Minsk Agreement the West and Russia finally got what they wanted or close to that from Ukraine, not minding much about leaving the miserable country in ruins, its map ruthlessly chopped and the economy in a perfect chaos. On the one side the EU or rather Berlin and Paris plus Washington and on the other side Moscow, all of them anxious only about extending their spheres of interest. The foreign powers showed the least interest in keeping Ukraine in one piece; hypocrisy from A to Z. Probably the same is true for the majority of the Ukrainian political elite. The local notables chose to serve the foreigners rather that their own people.

Not to say anything about the country’s business oligarchs who sponsored the nationalistic and extreme right wing factions engaging in the civil war for the Kiev side. By the same token, the involvement of the Russian military machine in the actual fighting must have been very much superior compared to the implication of the Ukrainian regular armed forces. The simple conscripts were unwilling to fight each other.

Not the first time

Unfortunately we have seen this theatre staged again in the recent past in the same region of the Old Continent. It’s not the first time the West ruthlessly ruins a European country, while Moscow appears ready to rip off a share. With the destruction of Yugoslavia the West greatly extended its direct zone of influence by creating a number of ill fated pawn states like, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo and Fyrom, with Russia safeguarding its influence in amputated Serbia.

Not far from Europe the West and Russia also ‘joined’ forces, by direct involvement or abstention, in completely destroying large countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Syria. This is the brave new world that George H.W. Bush and George Walker Bush dreamed of and planned for, with Russia conceding or not being able to effectively go up against. As a result, history is repeating itself again before our very eyes in Ukraine, with the West and Russia having torn apart a rich country, which from now on will depend on them to feed and keep its people warm. The Russian and Ukrainian oligarchs and the Western multinationals will finish the job by feeding on Ukraine’s resources, leaving its people in absolute despair.

More bloodshed

Concerning the fighting on the ground there are still some enclaves to be fought for, like Mariupol in the Black Sea, as if the thousands of victims were not enough to finish the unholy work of dismembering this major European country. Russia cleaved off three key provinces, Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk. The details of the new border lines will be drown up again with blood. This is exactly what the Minsk Agreement foresees. In a way though, the largest loots are won by the West.

The French President Francois Hollande and the German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the beginning of February left it to be understood that in their meetings with the Russian President Vladimir Putin, the tree were just discussing the new lines on the map. The Minsk agreement is nothing else than a redraw of the European Atlas, in absentia of the millions of people involved. These are unmerciful operations staged in cold blood by the big powers, while trying to present their action at home as ‘a democratization process’ or ‘a humanitarian insolvent’.

The West gets a big share

Kiev now, under the direct control of the US and the European Union is in full command of not only the western provinces of Ukraine but also rules over the Russian speaking populations in the regions of Kharkiv and the Dnepropetrovsk. Only one year ago Russia, by maneuvering the previous Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych, was ready to incorporate the entire country in Putin’s Eurasian Union. This was the beginning of the end of Ukraine. Then came the straight intervention of the EU, with Paris and Berlin in some ways forcing Washington to intervene.
As mentioned above, the patent in which the West acted was exactly the same as in ex Yugoslavia.

In the 1990s it was mainly Germany behind the scenes pushing for the disintegration of Yugoslavia. It all started when Berlin arranged a more or less peaceful independance of Slovenia. The whole affair though ended up in the carnages of Kosovo and of Bosnia – Herzegovina. Both those ‘countries’ after independence slipped into lawlessness and economic destruction, with no visible possibility for an exit from their present chaos. Nobody in Europe or the US today pays attention to the tragic circumstances of millions of people in these parts of Europe. No mainstream western media are reporting on the appalling circumstances in Kosovo and Bosnia – Herzegovina.

Destroying a big country

The fate of Ukraine will be exactly the same. The economy of the country was based on the heavy industrial conglomerates in the eastern provinces, selling their outdated products only to Russia. In return Russia supplied Ukraine with cheap energy in the form of natural gas. Now Moscow charges Kiev with extravagant energy prices. Today, to keep going and warm the poor, Ukraine can only count on soft loans from Brussels and the International Monetary Fund. But those loans hurt the country in two ways. Firstly, the Western subsidies are damaging the internal abilities of the country to re-establish its economy and secondly, they will tie her financially for the decades to come.

Regrettably, ‘The European Sting‘ was proved right in predicting the dismembering and the economic destruction of Ukraine many months ago, at the times of the ‘glorious’ Maidan revolution.
