U.S. Moves to Squash EU Resistance in Eastern Europe
Secession by Transnistria and Gagauzia threaten EU Borg Hive

Vice President Joe Biden set the stage for the next phase of the economic war on Russia Tuesday when he announced from Poland the U.S. will impose a new round of sanctions following a vote in Crimea over the weekend declaring secession from Ukraine.
“It’s a simple fact that Russia’s political and economic isolation will only increase if it continues down this dark path,” Biden said.
The Associated Press reports “that virtually the entire world rejects the referendum in Crimea” and the region is “on edge over Russia’s nascent aggression in Crimea,” an allusion to the claim Russia plans to grab other former satellite states. “Former Soviet states are among the most alarmed by the prospect that Moscow could be resuming its traditional imperial ambitions,” AP claims despite a formidable obstacle to this, namely the inclusion of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland in NATO.
Biden’s visit and the hysterical warning by the establishment media of Russian annexing former republics serves as a cover for another agenda – preventing so-called “breakaway” regions in the neighborhood from joining Russia, either outright or as part of an economic association matching the one tendered by the European Union.
