“Ukraine Will Be Able to Restore Its Economy Only by Cooperating with Russia”

 

A fundamental truth.

The coup-installed government wrecked many important economic underpinnings simply because they involved Russia.

Anti-Russian bias was stoked into a national obsession.

And all that was associated with Russia, including economic rationality, was ignored or insulted.

The relationship between the two countries is profound and goes back many centuries.

Absolutely absurd and self-destructive to think you can just toss a millenium of history overboard, overnight, but that is just exactly what the United States wanted when it invested five billion dollars into creating the coup in Ukraine.

The United States has never cared the tiniest bit about Ukraine or its welfare, and certain groups in Ukraine have been extremely foolish to believe otherwise.

The United States cares about hurting Russia, let the chips fall the chips fall where they may, including the health and growth of Ukraine. “Collateral damage” is what they call it in all of their many bombing campaigns.

Ukraine means no more to America than do the women and children of Yemen or Syria or Venezuela.
