They weren't going to get foreign investment when there was an on going war, from the Russian invasion.US foreign policy also UN and EU wanted Ukraine to clean up its reputation so they could attract much needed foreign investment.UN sits in New York but it doesn't mean that geographical location is equial to political decision making and responsubility.Well, it's a little late to act on any of that now....but we would have bombed the Soviet Union, not just Georgia, and the Govt seat of the USSR, was in Russia...Moscow actually.ok, a Georgian Stalin killed not less Russians during the same hunger, should we bomb Georgia now? Or maybe we should bomb Ukraine for those starved Russians? Ukraine was not less a Soviet republic then than Russia.Stalin's left regime is estimated to have killed 3.5 million Ukrainians during the Holodomorno, there was no conflict going on between Russia and Ukraine for cebturies.Here's my take.
It's hard to know what's true between Ukraine and Russia aside from knowing that they have conflict that has probably existed for centuries. The Trump Administration gave Ukraine anti-tank missiles that they can use to protect themselves from a Russian, armored assault. As an American, I don't want to be involved in such affairs and I certainly do NOT support going to war with Russia over a border dispute with Ukraine.
actually, there was never Ukraine as a state.
Ukraine and Russia was one state pre-Mongol invasion, but after Mongols crushed all Russia lands part of Russian lands were occupied by Poland and later became Ukraine, part - by Liethuania and later became Belarus. Part stayed independent - later became Russia.
And in 17th century Polish Russians aka Ukrainians started a rebellion against Polish yoke and asked Russian tsar to protect them, taking intoRussian state. It was done and since then Ukraine has been in Russia.
Actually Ukraine in Russian language means Borderland. Ukrainians - Borderlanders. And there were several Ukraines in Russia, this Ukraine was just one of these regions.
But in 2014 US sponsired a Nazi coup in Kiev and since then this regime does everything pkssible to start a wad with Russia to tear two natikns from each other.
How many Ukranians did Stalin starve to death?
and lets' not forget Russia, invaded Georgia in 1922, and took over the country and forced their leftist regime on them....let by Stalin
Ukraine was as part of USSR as Russia, and USSR is gone, now Ukraine holds full responsibility for its crimes against humanity and oppressive regime.
though, Ukrainians themselves say that they are now under external administration from Washington. Biden bragged himsrlf that he fired general prosecutor of Ukraine.
So it is actually the US is who is responsible.
