U.S. declares commitment to strengthening Armed Forces of Ukraine in order to confront Russia
“The external control of Ukraine is an obvious fact, and it cannot be hidden by the closure of TV channels and sanctions against Medvedchuk and his wife, which looks especially low – quite in the spirit of those who rule in Kiev today. First, the establishment of external control was the real goal of the Maidan. Secondly, Poroshenko has already put Biden at the head of the table, recognizing him as the true ruler of Ukraine. Thirdly, Zelensky is able to manage his comedy quarter by force, that would be impossible without external control. Moreover, Ukraine can exist only under external control from the West. This is what is called “independence” there”, – the senator said.
