Response to Roger Cohen article below by Stanley Heller, Secretary, PEP May 19

“Ukraine is today the pivot of a struggle between individual freedom and imprisoning empire. There is no halfway house in this confrontation and no escaping the imperative of moral clarity in picking sides.”

And what about what the U.S. has been up to, treating capitalist Russia as if it were still the Soviet Union, expanding NATO into a dozen Eastern European countries, spending $5 billion inside Ukraine to spread “democracy” meaning to recruit Ukrainians to do the bidding of the U.S. 1%, Nuland’s leaked conversation where she picks “Yats” as the next ruler of the Ukraine.

Pity the people of the Ukraine caught between Russian and U.S. desires and oligarch dreams of more billions.

Much has been made by defenders of the deposed president of a claim that an Estonian diplomat heard from a Ukrainian doctor and told EU Foreign Affairs chief Catherine Ashton, that the same sniper shot soldiers and protesters. The doctor, Olga Bogomolets, denies it. See tenth paragraph of this story. She says she only saw and treated protesters. 3/8
