Ukraine Coup Plotted by US Over Russian Stance on Syria
The change of power in Ukraine was initiated by the United States in response to Russia's stance on Syria, the head of Stratfor, a geopolitical intelligence firm, said in an interview to Kommersant published Friday.
There Syria Russians demonstrated to the Americans that they were capable of influencing processes in the Middle East. But the US already has a lot of problems in that region, even without Russians? The US treated it as Russia's attempt to harm them. Event in Ukraine should be considered in this very context," George Friedman said, as quoted by the newspaper.
