The current conflict stems from a divide between western Ukraine, which
seeks a closer association with the European Union; and the eastern part
of the country, which has closer historic ties to Russia.
The usual interventionists in the US have long meddled in the internal
affairs of Ukraine. In 2004 it was US government money that helped finance
the Orange Revolution, as US-funded NGOs favoring one political group
over the other were able to change the regime. These same people have
not given up on Ukraine. They keep pushing their own agenda for Ukraine
behind the scenes, even as they ridicule anyone who claims US involvement.
A recent leaked telephone conversation between two senior government
officials made it clear that not only was the US involved in the Ukrainian
unrest, the US was actually seeking to determine who should make up the
next Ukrainian government!
