Back in the middle of June, Sergei Glazyev, the economic adviser to Vladimir Putin, appeared on a national television broadcast from Russia and pulled no punches in stating that the United States had overstepped the bounds of neutrality over Ukraine, and had declared war upon Russia by intervening in a satellite state of the Russian Federation, and border ally through commerce, language, and culture.
In fact, Sergei Glazyev went as far as to label both the United States, and the illegally installed Kiev government Nazi’s, working in tandem to bring down the economic and political partnership the Black Sea nation held with Moscow for a hundred years.
Sergei Glazyev: Regarding the policies of Kiev, let me say this. Kiev is clearly conducting a policy of genocide to eliminate the whole population of Donbass.
They’re destroying hospitals, kindergartens, schools… the fate they’re preparing for the people of Donbass is serfdom, which they make no secret of.
It’s obvious that the United States is fully controlling the Kiev Nazi’s, Poroshenko personally, and the government, and is pushing them to pursue this war against Donbass to the very end.
Why? Because this is a war by the United States against us.
Since the time of this interview, many different things have been done to increase the chaos occurring within Ukraine, and to escalate the proxy war between the U.S. and Russia. First, three sets of economic sanctions have been assessed against Russia, Russian businesses, and Russian politicians which are meant to hinder their ability to perform trade and transactions with European partners. Secondly, the United States began attacking allies that do business and trade with Russia, and have gone so far as to spy upon the most sensitive communications between German leadership, and to charge, indict, and impose a massive fine on French bank BNP Paribas for France’s choice to sell two naval gunships to the Russian government.
Then of course there is the most recent incident, involving the shooting down of Malaysian flight 777 over Eastern Ukraine, and Washington’s hardball propaganda campaign to vilify Russia as being the main force behind the take down.
Russia knows that the American empire is bankrupt, desperate, and becoming more isolated each day. In fact, one of America’s long-standing allies publicly stated two days ago that they no longer take calls from President Obama, and are seeking new trade agreements that bypass the dollar, and allow them to trade in their own sovereign currency.
The Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States lasted for more than 40 years, and ended with a collapse of an ideological and political superpower. And 25 years later, the tables are now turned, and it is the United States who has become the ideological ‘Evil Empire’, and are quickly de-evolving because of the growing economic might of Russia, China, and the emerging nations. And as with any empire, from the Persian, to the Greek, to the Roman, when an empire has nothing of substance to offer, their last resort is, and has always been, war.
