Ukraine refused to sign an Association Agreement in Vilnius in November 2013 as it had committed to do under the pro western president Viktor Yushchenko who was elected after the so-called Orange Revolution in 2004. In February 2010, the newly elected president Viktor Yanukovych decided to step backwards. He justified his move arguing that this treaty would jeopardize the sovereignty of his country. If Ukraine had signed this agreement, it would have had to cut the close relationships it had maintained with Russia and this would have threatened the unsteady balance by means of which the country had remained independent despite the presence on its borders of the two big powers: Russia and the EU-NATO. We now know this treaty was a tactic used by the United States to put an end to this geopolitical balance of power and separate Ukraine from Russia once and for all.

Yanukovych rejected a pending EU association agreement, choosing instead to pursue a Russian loan bailout and closer ties with Russia. This led to popular protests and the occupation of Kiev’s Independence Square dubbed « Euromaidan » by young pro-European Union Ukrainians. Source: Wikipedia

The social unrest mysteriously broke out after the refusal of Yanukovych. President Yanukovych, who had been legally elected in 2010 for a period of five years was ousted by an apparently spontaneous uprising. The Ukrainians wanted so much to join the West ! Would that kind of behaviour have ever been accepted in the United States? Imagine a bunch of people, unhappy with the signing of the TPP and hence going to “Washington-Maidan” and forcing president Obama (and the whole Wall Street-CFR mafia surrounding him) out. If people had reacted the same way in France when the Lisbon Treaty was voted by its deputies in February 2008, three years after the referendum had buried the European Constitution, do you seriously think the mainstream journalists would have applauded such a « Revolution »?
