Lieven on Ukraine


“Clearly the American government was trying to bring about the fall of Yanukovych,” but they didn’t correctly predict the devastating consequences of their actions in Ukraine, Georgetown University professor Anatol Lieven told Russia Today’s Anissa Naouai on the programme she presents, In the Now. Although the EU began the crisis and the US was a late comer, the scholar said, diplomats on the ground including Victoria Nuland tried to create an “anti-Russian” regime and bring the country into NATO.
