Desperation in Kiev

00 the ukraine aint dead yet.. but soon shall be. 09.06.15

______________________________

Driven by Kiev’s desperation… as the Ukrainian economy tanks, the IMF again refused billions of dollars of assistance previously promised… Europe increasingly withdraws its support, sceptical of Kiev’s denial of sending raiders to the Crimean peninsula… they’ve excluded Ukrainian President Poroshenko from September’s G20 meeting… the government is frantically trying to regain unconditional Western support. Even US Vice President Biden, the overseer of Washington’s “Ukrainian project”, appears to have worries about Kiev’s recklessness. Kiev won’t or can’t negotiate an end to the Ukrainian civil/proxy war. It seems determined to provoke a larger war with Russia to regain Western support, but its repeated claims that Putin is preparing a “new invasion” lack logic and no longer seem credible to Kiev’s former unconditional Western supporters. Stephen Cohen asked, “Can this tail again wag the dog, with dire consequences?”

The Ukrops fail to understand that the Americans will have no time for them until after January, as the election and ensuing transition absorb the Beltway crowd. A lot can happen before then…
