Ukraine – An US-Installed Nazi-Infested Failed State

Published on The People’s, by Stephen Lendman, Feb 8, 2016.

… Two years after fascists seized power, conditions for ordinary Ukrainians are deplorable. According to Germany’s daily broadsheet Junge Welt, they’re “staggering.”

“Since the end of the Yanukovych era, the average income has decreased by 50%,” it reported – on top of 2015’s 44% inflation, nearly reducing purchasing power by half, making it impossible for most Ukrainians to get by. They’re suffering hugely, deeply impoverished, denied fundamental social services, abolished or greatly reduced en route to eliminating them altogether.  

Ukraine’s economy is bankrupt, teetering on collapse, sustained by US-controlled IMF loans, violating its longstanding rules, a special dispensation for Ukraine. It loaned billions of dollars to a deadbeat borrower unable to repay them, an unprecedented act, funding its war machine, turning a blind eye to a hugely corrupt regime persecuting its own people. Ukraine’s GDP is in near free-fall, contracting by 12% last year, projected to continue declining sharply this year and beyond.

The average pension was cut to 80 euros monthly (around $90), an impossible amount to live on, forcing pensioners to try getting by any way they can, including growing some of their own food in season.

US anointed illegitimate oligarch president Petro Poroshenko is widely despised. So are other key regime officials. They blame dismal economic conditions mainly on ongoing civil war – US-orchestrated and backed naked aggression against Donbass freedom fighters, rejecting fascist rule, wanting fundamental democratic rights, deserving universal praise and support … //

… The last thing Europe needs today is a (politically and economically unstable) Ukraine,” a US-installed puppet regime, a metastasizing cancer in Europe’s heartland.
