The longer it takes to resolve the Ukraine conflict and the harder Kiev tries not to comply with the Minsk agreements, the more often the issue comes up of the special role played by the United States in starting this military and political gamble.
Why isn't Kiev acting properly under the Normandy four agreement? “Poroshenko breached virtually everything he agreed to” in Minsk, Stephen Lendman writes on the website thepeoplevoice.org, and assumes that that this has something to do with an “order from Washington”.
Meanwhile, the ultimate goal of the United States remains unknown. It continues to dictate the course of action not only to Ukraine but to the European Union as well. Nothing stops it: neither accusations of interfering with European politics nor the eroding reputation of the leaders of the two EU member states who participated in signing the Minsk agreements.
