Impeachment, America’s Orwellian Legacy in Ukraine,
and Why It Matters
by Victor Rud,
"It is especially important to introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements–extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S. It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics. . . . Russia should also work toward isolating Britain from Europe, introducing discord both within the EU and between the US and the EU, and destabilizing Turkey. Russia must annex Ukraine because its independence is an enormous danger. Aleksandr Dugin, with General Nikolai Klokotov (Russian General Staff Academy), The Foundations of Geopolitics, 1997.
“Whether Russian led integration on the territory of the former USSR will pose a serious, long-term military challenge to the West, depends in large part on the role that Ukraine plays or is compelled to play. . . . Ukraine will do much to determine whether Europe and the world in the twenty-first century will be as bloody as they were in the twentieth.” Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, 1997.
