Gauging Ukraine with Russia and Belarus
April 24, 2019

In the post-Soviet period, US foreign policy and media establishments have overhyped Ukrainian positives, while disproportionately highlighting the negatives in Russia and Belarus, Michael Averko writes.

Ukraine: War and Crisis to Enrich Tycoons
April 28, 2015

In February 2014 a coup took place in Ukraine to serve the interests of big geopolitical players and tycoons, but not grassroots. The first ones wanted to start an offensive against Russia, the second ones wanted to take advantage of instability and promote their business interests… The war unleashed by the government in the eastern part of Ukraine resulted in death and impoverishment of common people. At the same time it opened great prospects for personal enrichment of government, those who are close to it and tycoons. The higher is position, the more profit a person makes.

Ukraine: La guerre des oligarques
March 27, 2015

Les événements des ces derniers jours à Kiev montrent les tendances à la désintégration du système politique. Mais, ces mêmes tendances sont, peut-être porteuses d’espoir en ce qui concerne le conflit que ce pays connaît depuis février 2014.

 

Another Phase of Ukraine’s Statehood Crisis: US Embassy Involved in Showdown between Tycoons
March 27, 2015

The Ukraine’s government is losing independence unable to stop the internal fight between the clans of tycoons. For instance, the current stand-off between Ukrainian big business tycoon Igor Kolomoisky, the governor of the Dnipropetrovsk Region (one of the most important regions of the country) and President Petro Poroshenko was stopped only after the US embassy directly interfered to support the head of state. Poroshenko would not dare launch an open attack against Kolomoisky or, all the more, fire him without Washington’s say so…

Kolomoisky Is About to Devour Ukraine
February 21, 2015

About a quarter century ago oligarchic capitalism started to grow in the soil of Ukraine. It is based on «natural selection» – oligarchs devour small and medium businesses, as well as state assets. With primitive capital accumulation resources coming to an end, oligarchs begin to devour each other… After the coup of 2014 the «natural selection» process in Ukraine abruptly accelerated… Rinat Akhmetov once was the leading oligarch in Ukraine, now he has left the world 100 wealthiest people list. The Bloomberg Billionaires Index brought him down from 88th to 121st… Now Petro Poroshenko and Igor Kolomoisky are reaching the final…

Country’s Future and Drastic Reshuffle in Ukrainian Tycoons’ Ranks
February 20, 2015

The civil war unleashed by the ruling regime in Ukraine resulted in human suffering and degradation of national economy, as well as transformation of ruling elite. The perception that nine families of tycoons rule the country does not correspond to reality anymore. The ruling circle gets rapidly narrowed as big business in the south-east gets bankrupt with its property systematically eliminated as if it were done according to some plan… The temporary cease-fire is in force as a result of Minsk agreement, but the internal fight between tycoon clans is in full swing…

Israel’s Secret Plan for a «Second Israel» in Ukraine
December 3, 2014

…One of the main reasons why Ukrainian Jewish billionaire tycoon Ihor Kolomoisky, the governor of Ukraine’s Dnipropetrovsk province and citizen of Ukraine, Israel, and Cyprus, is spending tens of millions of dollars on the recruitment of right-wing Ukrainian nationalists and neo-Nazis from other parts of Europe to fight against the Russian-speaking majority in the Donbass region of eastern Ukraine, is a fear that plans to turn Ukraine into a «second Israel» will be derailed…
