Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I do not think and never said that there are no Ukrainians that see their future with West and EU...but I would like to first see proper REFERENDUM about it. You Europeans had referendums to decide if you want to go to EU ( UK is even planing to have one more again to check people's will and maybe even get out, and some countries had them over and over again because they didn't want it at first so they had to be pushed a bit).
Why Ukrainians are less of the people then you so EU and USA had to help those tugs to come to power and simply DECIDE for Ukrainians to sign ASP agreement to go to EU and most importantly NATO? Are Ukrainians all idiots?
Being puppet of USA unfortunately seem to go together with membership of EU.And seems like there is no choice for countries (at least those new members)  to become members of EU but not Nato members automatically?
EU/USA was the side that gave them ultimatum " either with us or against us".Big mistake.
I am not Pro Russia at all but I am sick of USA bullying especially after fall of USSR. Enough is enough!World is not just west.There are other cultures and other interests. You need to learn to play fear (remember democracy) and unfortunately it seems that it is not possible without show of force on the other side.That's a curse of human nature...seems like we are not that far from animals at all...
