Getting Out Of Foreign Wars: Next Up, Ukraine?

Authored by Doug Bandow via The American Conservative blog,

Recently Ukraine has been thrown into the spotlight as Democrats gear up to impeach President Donald Trump. More important, though, is its role in damaging America’s relations with Russia, which has resulted in a mini-Cold War that the U.S. needs to end.

In 2014, Washington and European governments backed a street putsch against the elected, though highly corrupt, pro-Russian president, Viktor Yanukovych. The Putin government responded by annexing Crimea and backing separatist forces in Eastern Ukraine’s Donbass region. Washington and Brussels imposed economic sanctions on Russia and provided military aid to Kiev.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Annexing Crimea"?!? Sir, let's stop with the codswallop, because it has become far too much to swallow. And President Obama admitted to the US role in this Ukrainian putsch during a televised interview:

Obama admists that the US government brokered a deal in support of Regime Change in Ukraine

Apparently, you have utterly no grasp of what really happened, after Poroshenko was "anointed" as Ukraine's geopolitical "saviour" in 2014.

The people in Crimea knew that there would be no decency, or real representation in government coming out of Kiev (you do know what country of which the city is capital, don't you?!?) forthcoming for a long time to come. So this is what the people of Crimea did:

1. In a fair and honest referendum, the Crimean government asked its people if it wanted to stay with Ukraine, or leave it, after the "election" to install Poroshenko. Overwhelmingly, Crimea voted to leave Ukraine, and request that the Russian Federation allow Crimea to return to as a member of the Russian Federation.

2. Here is the BBC article on this; had you actually done your homework, and researched this intelligently (which you obviously did not), you would have realized that this was a documented referendum, and a documented return to Russia as a choice by the Crimean people

And I would like to add here, that "peaceful self-determination" is one of the most critically important portions of the UN charter, to which both Russia and the US are also a signatory./ Crimea referendum: Voters 'back Russia union' Russia then accepted them as full members of the Russian Federation; there was no "annexation" whatsoever, period, end of discussion.
