US, EU ‘Give Up’ Ukraine to Seek Russian Political Support
After inciting the Ukrainian conflict that led the country to a civil war and brought it to the verge of economic collapse, the West has now realized that Ukraine isn’t worth much, at least not as much as establishing a working political relationship with Russia, US political journalist Brian Whitmore said.
The United States and the European Union (EU) are “selling out” Ukraine to Russia to gain the Kremlin’s support in dealing with Iran’s nuclear program and looking for Moscow’s approval of taking out Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, the Atlantic Magazine reported.
According to Brian Whitmore, over the past few weeks, the Europeans and Americans have been busy trying to strike a political deal with Vladimir Putin.
“The United States and Europe might give up Ukraine in exchange for Russia’s support of securing a deal to curb Iran’s nuclear program. Additionally, Washington has been seeking Moscow’s backing in securing a managed, orderly, and negotiated exit for Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad,” Whitmore said in the Atlantic.
Whitmore speculates that the secret deal between the superpowers started when the US government praised Moscow’s role in reaching the Iranian nuclear agreement.
