US-Backed Government in Ukraine Falls Apart

-Ron Paul
The Ukraine13841189343_ab4f7723c2_z government has collapsed. Once again, a government the US helped bring into existence is falling apart.

This spring, the US—along with the help of the EU—accomplished a coup against the elected government of Yanukovych. Since then, things have not gone smoothly. Crimea secedes and joins Russia. Eastern Ukraine, sympathetic to the Russians, seek independence. Western Ukraine objects, and civil war breaks out.
