The Ukraine – Will the Coup-makers Take Charge?

So, the US and EU financed and encouraged fascist parties to create chaos, attack the police, occupy public buildings and squares and finally sign an agreement with the president, which was promptly broken by the opposition to total silence by the signatories, Germany, France and Poland on behalf of the EU.

One of the first ‘reforms’ by the new ‘cabinet’ and ‘parliament’ was to abolish a previous law which made all ethnic languages in the Ukraine official. A key effect of this is that the Russian language, spoken by over half the population of Crimea, has lost its official status.

The fascists threatened to send ‘friendship trains’ to the east of Ukraine to prevent opposition to their rule. Now that the eastern Ukrainians have organised themselves in defence and Russia has shown it will support them, the new government asks for money from the west and aggression against Russia. But do they control the fascists, now fully armed and occupying streets, squares and Orthodox churches in the west?

The situation is akin to that in Libya, where the Government has no control over the country. Even oil is now sold to foreign firms by armed groups who control the assets. Is this the fate for the Ukraine? The sponsors of this coup should be taking responsibility, but they may have decided that chaos suits them better.

Concern that further privatisation and an open market for stronger West European industries would lead to mass unemployment was a key issue that broke the talks between the EU and Yanukovich. The Ukraine, the poorest country in Europe, is about to become poorer.

Liberals & many on the 'left' exaggerate differences between Trump & Biden; click to see what would make a real difference.
There is no effective “freedom” in a society in which working people live in poverty & billionaires live like parasites.

Biden opposed moves to rebuild Afghanistan, advising a policy of fighting terrorism in the country. He also opposed withdrawal of US troops, which Trump carried out.

@theworkerorguk Which international conflicts has biden spoken more violently than trump on? Evidence please.

Biden's regime will hold on to enclaves in the North East and work alongside Turkish invaders, continuing sanctions against the Syrian government. In general, Biden wants US global leadership, which he sees as being diminished by Trump's inconsistencies.

Biden intends to have tighter sanctions on DPRK, and to have stricter preconditions with respect to engaging on talks. The Democrat's president also intends to strengthen an alliance against North Korea. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-biden-northkorea-analysi/biden-on-north-korea-fewer-summits-tighter-sanctions-same-standoff-idUSKBN25G2QO
