Ukraine to be divided differently: Behind cancellation of Malorossia project

Source By Alexander Maslov The leader of the DPR, Alexander Zakharchenko, publicly refused plans for the reorganization of the Ukrainian state under the name of «Malorossia» («Little Russia») as it ‘causes rejection by many’.  The head of the Donetsk People's Republic did not explain who these mysterious «many» were, but there is no doubt that, among them, there are primarily our Western «partners», for whom «Ukraine» is a kind of «sacred cow». Or rather, given some gastronomic aspects, a «sacred pig» of the almost religious cult of Russophobia, which they have already professed for centuries and whose «faith symbol» was literally defined the other day by the...

Why giving Ukraine lethal weapons would be a massive mistake

Source By Charles A. Kupchan, a professor of international affairs at Georgetown University and a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, served on the National Security Council from 2014 to 2017. The Trump administration is in the midst of making a decision on whether to transfer lethal weaponry to Ukraine. This potential move is intended to give Ukraine’s military the ability to impose new costs on the Russians and their proxies engaged in a separatist revolt in the country’s eastern region of Donbass, thereby persuading the Kremlin to give up the fight. But the result would likely be the opposite — an escalation in the conflict that would lead to further losses of Ukraine’s territory and compromise its political stability. Russia enjoys insurmountable military superiority over Ukraine. The United States should not encourage Ukraine to engage in an escalatory confrontation with Russia. Washington knows full well that Ukraine cannot prevail. The urge to give...

America's Ukraine Hypocrisy

Source By Ted Galen Carpenter There is an abundance of outrage in the United States about Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Multiple investigations are taking place, and Moscow’s conduct was a major justification for the sanctions legislation that Congress just passed. Some furious political figures and members of the media insist that the Putin government’s interference constitutes an act of war. One especially agitated House member even compared it explicitly to thePearl Harbor and 9/11 attacks. Such umbrage might be more credible if the United States refrained from engaging in similar conduct. But the historical record shows that Washington has meddled in the political affairs of dozens of countries—including many democracies. An egregious example occurred in Ukraine during the Euromaidan Revolution of 2014. Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych was not an admirable character. After his election in 2010, he used patronage and other...
