These two maps will clear away a few of the cobwebs laid by the Western media. Note how the east and south are HEAVILY Russian… these areas would NEVER join the EU. Also notice how the “Ukrainian” areas are poorer than the Russian areas are… that is, the loudmouthed ultra-nationalists depend on money from the Russian areas… fancy that!
The Ukrainian SSR was the jewel in the crown of the USSR… its wealth and per capita income were ABOVE those of the RSFSR. Today, it’s turned on its head, they’ve flipped positions. Why? You must understand that Western corporations raped the Ukraine, using diaspora Ukrainians (mainly Uniates) as their willing agents. These greedster outsiders came in and gathered up the profits made in the Ukraine and took it all abroad. They bought off the local politicos… so, the Ukrainian economy‘s lifeblood flowed out of the country, impoverishing it (much as godless greedy pigs like Wee Willy Romney rape the USA). After a generation of such legalised theft, the Ukraine is an economic basket-case… it needs either Russian or EU aid to survive, let alone thrive. The Little Russian people don’t deserve this. However, it’s what the West wants… they’re cheap wetback labour for the West, dontcha know. In fact, most of the recent ethnic Russian immigrants here in the USA came from the Ukraine, not the Russian Federation… the economy there collapsed, so, they had to find work SOMEWHERE. Interestingly enough, most of the new immigrants aren’t Uniates or schismatic Orthodox… they’re either legit Orthodox or sectarians.
The Ukraine is trembling on the brink of a breakup. The Supreme Soviet of the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea (VS ARK) secured the Perekop, and has all entry points guarded. You don’t hear about it in the Western media, but the Russian East will NOT take part in an oppo government that wants to lie down and be fucked by the West. The Soviet Ukraine was never an ethnographic reality… it was a composite of several nationalities, which made it easier to rule. After 1991, this meant that no serious “nation-building” was possible. The Ukraine is going to disintegrate along linguistic and confessional lines. The Russian and Orthodox East shall go to Russia, whilst the Uniate and Ukrainian West will go to the EU. The present imbroglio is over who gets the central Ukraine.
RIP Ukraine… it’s sad… Western businessmen never gave them a real fighting chance (they stole away their substance and treasure, giving them NOTHING in return). They’re real victims of the crapitalist delusion…
