Russia Accuses West of Starting Ukraine Crisis

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov turned the tables on Thursday and accused the United States and the European Union of starting the crisis in Ukraine.

Last week a deal was signed in Geneva between Russia, Ukraine, the U.S. and the EU to resolve the crisis – one of the worst since the end of the Cold War. It has yet to be carried out.

But Lavrov told the Interfax news agency, “In Ukraine, the United States and the European Union tried to stage – let’s call things what they are – another ‘color revolution,’ an operation to unconstitutionally change regime.”

The ‘color revolution’ remark refers to the 2004-2005 Ukrainian ‘Orange Revolution’ that occurred when the country’s presidential run-off election was seized by pro-Kremlin leaders.

Months-long anti-government protests in Ukraine resulted in the ouster of the country’s President Viktor Yanukovich, who fled to Russia several weeks ago. The eastern part of the country has been seized by separatists, and Crimea altogether seceded from Ukraine and was formally annexed by Russia. Journalists have been kidnapped, and an Israeli-American reporter is still being held hostage in the separatist city of Slaviansk.

  12. In fact, Russia blames since February “the West and the Jews” for the reform revolution in Ukraine. Horrible articles in the Russian media against “the rich Ukrainian Jews, who took control over Ukraine” (who must be that in the eyes of the poor Russian Muzhik, of course…), than against Israel (of course, the Jewish state is blamed even now for “sending the snipers in Kiev”), than against the EU (and of course, against “the Jewish banks” in the EU), than against the USA (and of course, against “the Jewish Wall Street brokers”) – this is the media stream the whole time. That’s Kremlin – the Russian Fascists pointed with the finger at Mr Yatsenyuk and Mr Groisman (two great Ukrainian politicians, who did really the impossible things to save Ukraine in the last 3 months), saying “They are Jews! Maydan it’s a Jewish conspiracy!”. As ever, the democratic Ukrainians and the Ukrainian Jews stay on hte same side – for more human rights, for more freedom, for a better life. And this is what Ukraine should be. May HaShem bless!
