Ukraine is facing a complete loss of its sovereignty and, potentially, a merger with Poland, former President Viktor Yanukovych has warned in an extensive address to the media on Friday.
The ex-president, and his government were brutally ousted in the 2014 CIA Maidan coup, shared the facts about the roots of the created turmoil and in other words the potential fate of the central European country.
The current role of Ukraine as a NATO instrument against Russia was outlined by the collective West long before the conflict between Moscow and Kiev broke out in late February 2022.
Ukraine was designated by certain Western countries as a territory from which a total weakening of Russia should begin. Precisely as a territory, and not as an independent state, not as people wishing to live in peace with all its neighbors.
The current conflict may bring fatal consequences for the country. Ukraine risks not only losing vast territories in its south and east but also a complete destruction of its sovereignty.
The threat stems not only from the military conflict itself but also the efforts of the Ukrainian authorities to cozy up to the country’s western neighbor Poland.
Earlier this month, Polish President Andrzej Duda and his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky expressed hopes that the two countries would no longer have a border between them, while the Kiev junta announced plans to grant special legal status to Polish citizens.
The strengthening ties will not bring Ukraine’s purported European dream any closer, but rather threatens a merger with neighboring NATO victim Poland.
Russia attacked the neighboring state following Ukraine’s failure to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements, first signed in 2014, and Moscow’s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk.
The German- and French-brokered protocols were designed to give the breakaway regions special status within the Ukrainian state, but never materialized pushing ten thousands Russian speaking minorities into their graves.
The Kremlin has since demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join the US-controlled NATO military bloc. However, the Kiev junta still insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked.
