Last week the Ukrainian President, Petro O. Poroshenko, announced his intention to take Ukraine on a path towards full integration into the European Union (E.U.) in the coming years. In a New York Times article titled: Ukrainian President Sets Sights on Closer E.U. Ties, Mr. Poroshenko outlines the direction he plans to take the nation under his leadership:
“The doors of the E.U. are open to us; I am absolutely convinced of this. Events in Kiev and Brussels gave us a firm hope, a belief, that we will soon get the prospect of E.U. membership. We have every right to knock on this door.”
As I reported in an article in March of this year titled: Brzezinski, Soros Staged Revolution in Ukraine, the objective of the West in Ukraine has always been to absorb the nation into the E.U. and NATO:
“The staged revolution, devised by the CIA, EU, State Department, and George Soros funded NGO’s in Ukraine, has overthrown the democratically elected government of Victor Yanukovych in a coup designed to forge closer ties between Ukraine and the E.U., in a long term strategy of integrating Ukraine into the E.U. and NATO.”
Beginning as a common market between six countries in 1950’s, the E.U. has now expanded to encompass 28 nations today and it is an essential part of the Western elite’s desire for global empire. As soon as the U.S. installed its puppet regime in Kiev, the illegitimate government began to steer the country on a path towards Europe and the West, resulting in Ukraine signing an association agreement with the E.U. in mid September. Following recent trilateral talks between Moscow, Kiev and Brussels however, this agreement has been postponed and enforcement of the deal will be delayed until 2016 due to a swift move of diplomacy by Russian President Vladimir Putin, which gives the Russian government time to renegotiate the terms and nature of the deal.
Washington’s Puppet seeks NATO Membership
Despite the heightened state of tension between Russia and the West on the international stage, the Prime Minister of Ukraine – Arseny Yatsenyuk – recently called for Ukraine to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO). If Ukraine was to join the alliance in the near future it would signify a further escalation in a situation that is already beginning to spiral out of control, as it would directly threaten Russia’s strategic security.
U.S. stooge Yatsenyuk, or “Yats” to his close friends at the U.S. State Department, was installed as Prime Minister at the end of February following the staged revolution which led to the overthrow of Yanukovych. In a leaked phone conversation between the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland, and the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt, the two American diplomats revealed their intentions to install “Yats” to lead the new puppet government in Kiev. Nuland states during the leaked conversation:
“I think Yats is the guy who’s got the economic experience, the governing experience, he’s the….what he needs is Klitsch and Tyahnybok on the outside. He needs to be talking to them four times a week, you know. I just think Klitsch going in…. he’s going to be at that level working for Yatsenyuk, it’s just not going to work.”
Since Yatsenyuk was ‘appointed’ Prime Minister in February, Ukraine has become increasingly polarised into Eastern and Western Ukraine, with Lugansk and Donetsk in the East declaring independence from the corrupt and criminal government in Kiev. Western Ukraine has all but been absorbed into the European sphere of influence, along with the puppet leaders allowing private and corporate jackals to exploit the countries resources. Since the colour revolution in February Ukraine has agreed a $17bn loan from the economic arm of U.S. imperialism – the International Monetary Fund (IMF) – as well as receiving 11 billion Euros in funding from the European Commission. The new government has also opened up its “rich agriculture to Monsanto, DuPont and the GMO agribusiness cartel”.
In addition to this, Western elites have been installed in key positions of the energy sector in Ukraine, with the son of US Vice President Joe Biden joining the board of Ukraine’s biggest gas producer in May. Hunter Biden will sit beside three other corporate heavyweights on the Board of Directors, including Aleksander Kwaśniewski, who was appointed Director of the company in January 2014. Kwaśniewski is the former Prime Minister of Poland, along with being a top globalist who is a member of the Bilderberg Group and the European Council on Foreign Relations. Another notable addition to the Board in April 2014 was Devon Archer, who has worked for Citibank during his career as well serving as a “senior advisor to John Kerry during his 2004 Presidential campaign”, according to Burisma Holdings’ own website.
If Ukraine is absorbed into NATO in the coming years, it will just be the latest country in a long list of former Warsaw Pact nations that have joined the alliance following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Since the failed promise by US Secretary of State James Baker on February 9, 1990, that NATO would not move “one inch to the East” of Germany, numerous former Warsaw Pact countries have joined NATO and have been complicit in a policy of encircling Russia.
Both E.U. and NATO membership are on the horizon for Ukraine in the foreseeable future if the puppet regime in Kiev is allowed to stay in charge and run the country for the benefit of their masters in the West.
