Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The main two reasons for US and EU policy are genuine idealism and the strategic aim to expand the EU influence into a buffer zone between themselves and Russia.

And, by the way, why do you need a "buffer zone" between western Europe and Russia?  I thought the Cold War was over.  This is just another example of trying to kick Russia while it is down - and down due to western policies and advice.

Who's expanding militarily?  Hmmm, not Russia.  If anything, it is Russia that has a legitimate need for a buffer zone against American / European imperialism on its borders - and inside them using NGO's.
