After the Ukrainian Elections (A Special Locution)
Monday, May 26th, 2014
Even after the presidential election, the Ukraine will not enjoy peace. As the dust settles, Putin will see the true state of the Ukraine. He sees those parts which are firmly his, those parts which want to belong to Russia and those parts that lean toward Russia. He also sees the weaknesses and divisions in those parts that choose the Ukraine.
His method will be constant disturbances. A government and its president must provide security or else they are seen as weak. By continuing to cause problems, Putin will constantly weaken these already shaky foundations. The Ukrainian government does not have great resources and would have difficulties even in times of peace.
Putin’s method will be to constantly cause turmoil. He needs only to continue to disrupt in order to claim more and more of the Ukraine.
The election will not end these disturbances nor bring peace. The election is on the surface while the divisions are deeply engrained into the Ukrainian culture.
