The Ukraine Election
Paul Craig Roberts
Things have to change in order to remain the same. The Maidan protests were for naught. One Ukrainian oligarch has been replaced by another. Poroshenko’s palace is as sumptuous as Yanukovich’s palace. Poroshenko even served as a minister in Yanukovich’s government, and he has been part of Ukrainian political corruption for years. The only difference is that Poroshenko might choose to ally with Washington and become richer by participating in the West’s looting of Ukraine. Those poor gullible Maidan protesters. How much better off Ukraine would be if they had not allowed themselves to be used by Washington.
