Is there anything in common between the current events in Venezuela and Ukraine?
In both cases, the minority is speaking on behalf of the majority. Why do they succeed? Because they are generously financed from abroad. Extremists in both Venezuela and Ukraine live off the same sources. The only difference between the two countries is how deep they have plunged into chaos. In Ukraine, it is safe to speak about a coup d’etat, while in Venezuela, the protesters are only just trying to destabilize the situation.
Could you specify who exactly is behind the riots in Ukraine and Venezuela?
It’s the European Union and the United States. Their emissaries have literally settled in Ukraine. It’s the same old thing: loud statements about alleged human rights abuses and alleged attacks on the opposition, threats of economic sanctions, and not a word about the Molotov cocktails the "oppressed crowds" threw at law enforcers.
What interests do the US and the EU pursue in Ukraine?
Their key goal is to get closer to the Russian border. Without doubt, NATO has plans to deploy missile defense weapons in Ukraine. And look at Ukraine’s agricultural potential. It’s a country capable of feeding the whole of Europe. And there’s one more thing: the Black Sea may prove to be rich in oil and gas.
