Does anybody believe the US/EU's interest in the Ukraine/Crimean region is philanthropic?


The US/EU have formented dissent and supported the overthrow of a legitimate government and helped replace them with neo-fascists and other right wing supporters. Given the strategic importance of the Crimea and Europe's reliance on gas that is pumped through the Ukraine does anybody think this is anything other than a naked attempt to grow western influence?

    I think you are largely right.

    One thing which I think is going to be vital is the future of the Crimea. Russia can't afford to lose access to the waterways though that region as it is there access into the Balkan regions.
