Nuland ‘Anxious to Shift Kiev From Diplomacy to Warfare’: Professor of Sociology

WASHINGTON, October 7 (RIA Novosti) – US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland’s visit to the Ukrainian capital Kiev indicates that Washington is worried that the Ukrainian government is hesitating to gain control over the country’s East militarily, Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Binghamton University in New York James Petras has told RIA Novosti.

“Nuland, who is considered by most experts in the United States a neo-conservative extremist, was the architect of the coup [in Ukraine]. Since the stalemate has taken place, Washington has increased its flow of advisors to western Ukraine and I think that Nuland is particularly anxious to shift Kiev from diplomacy to warfare”, Petras said Monday.

He also noted that Nuland’s main goal in Kiev is “to take [Ukrainian President] Mr. [Petro] Poroshenko to task for spending so much time talking and not as much time planning and strategizing for a new phase in the military dimensions of the conflict.”

The expert went further by arguing that the militarization of foreign policy has become the principle strategy of Washington.

In addition, Professor Petras stated that the United States is offering Kiev very limited economic aid and is particularly interested in privatization of the Ukrainian economy.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland have discussed the implementation of the Minsk agreements, aimed at resolving the situation in southeastern Ukraine, the Ukrainian president’s official website reported Monday.

The September 5 meeting of the Contact Group of Ukraine resulted in a ceasefire agreement between the Ukrainian government and pro-independence forces, which came into force that same day. The sides agreed on a nine-point memorandum, specifying the implementation of the ceasefire during another meeting of the group.

KIEV, October 4 (RIA Novosti) – Two children have been killed and five wounded as a result of a shell burst in Zuhres, Donetsk Region, the state administration of the region said Saturday.

“The tragedy happened on Friday evening. Seven schoolchildren found an unburst shell. As they tried to move it, the weapon exploded; two children died on the spot,” the administration stated.

According to the source, five other children were wounded, being taken to hospitals in Khartsyzk and Makiivka.

In April, Ukrainian authorities launched a military operation in the country’s southeast, where independence supporters refused to accept the new government that was put in power following a coup in February.

The self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics in eastern Ukraine held referendums this May on self-determination. Over 90 percent of the voters cast their votes for greater autonomy. The republics declared themselves sovereign states as a result.

On September 5, a truce was brokered by Russia and the OSCE, which is for the most part maintained. However, the sides blame one another for violating it. Reports from DPR claim that the Ukrainian forces are firing shells at residential buildings from the area near the airport of Donetsk, thus forcing the independence supporters to open fire.

According to UN estimates, the conflict has so far killed over 3,600 people and injured over 8,500.
