The myth of Russian aggression or who benefits from inciting strife between Russia and Ukraine
The international crisis, unfolding at the end of 2013 - beginning of 2014 in Ukraine, and its consequences that are the followed coup d'etat as well as an actual split of Ukraine on two according to the lingoethnic characteristic lead to thinking of how the country have come to a such a situation.
The main reason of the climate in the country being destabilized according to the Western media is the retreat of the former Ukrainian government from the way of integration with the European Union which ran counter to the aspirations of the people. Besides, American and European politicians and journalists accuse Yanukovich in repressing public will and unwillingness to compromise with the opposition. This according to the opinion of the Western truth-seekers justifies murders, raids, seizure of administrative buildings in a way nationalists from the "Right sector" did.
All those "methods of the democratic change of power" are being actively supported by equally "democratic" politicians and mass-media of the West, who perfectly forgot the "fascist plaque", raging in Europe in the 1930th - 1940th. Furthermore, the informational push to speak out their truth regarding the situation in Ukraine is also "Russian aggression and aspiration to separate the Crimea from the country". As became traditional for the russophobic periodicals and politicians of the West, Russia is portrayed as an aggressor who seeks to enslave back the people of Eastern Europe once being a part of the USSR or of the socialist camp. One of the main goals of this campaign aimed at discrediting Russian actions including its actions in Crimea is the pursuit to conceal the real goals the Western architects of the Ukrainian crisis have.
What can be stated with confidence is the United States being the prime ideologist of the events currently taking place in Ukraine. Destabilizing the climate in the countries along the Russian border considered its possible allies is very advantageous to the States. The proof for the statement made above is not hard to find: let's just apply to the book "The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives" written as long ago as in 1997 by one of the most well known political scientists, too well known to tell the story about his personality (Zbignew Brzezinski - editorial comment).
In his book he openly states that "without Ukraine Russia ceases to be a Eurasian empire. Russia without Ukraine can still strive for imperial status, but it would then become a predominantly Asian imperial state, more likely to be drawn into debilitating conflicts with aroused Central Asians. However, if Moscow regains control over Ukraine, with its 52 million people and major resources as well as its access to Black sea, Russia automatically regains again the wherewithal to become a powerful imperial state, spanning Europe and Asia". Despite it was written as long ago as in 1997 it seems not having lost the topicality for Washington.
That's why now the USA and their constant "European stooges" are doing their best to slander Russia and put into minds of the Ukrainian people the belief of imminent "Russian threat". Brussels and Washington don't seek to normalize the situation in Ukraine, what they seek is to set two fraternal nations to quarreling, and, if failed, just put the armed forces of the two into hostilities against each other. The consequences of that is up to everyone to imagine...
Still, to live in war or to live in peace is up to the people of Russia and Ukraine to decide. Together we went through countless difficult points but have never give up to no aggressor. And now is the very right time to remember this simple truth - we are not and never have been enemies, and firmly rebuff to the forces trying to cause a clash between us in order to take a weakened Ukraine over control and closely steal up to the Russian borders.
