Ron Paul: US Intervention Contributes to Risk of Ukraine Fighting Expansion

Ron Paul, interviewed Friday by Stuart Varney at Fox Business, says “trouble has been brewing” around Ukraine since the United States government in 2014 “participated in the coup” in the European nation, resulting in political upheavals including the ousting of President Viktor Yanukovych. The coup also set in motion developments leading to secession of Crimea from Ukraine and fighting between the Ukraine government’s forces and people in eastern Ukraine.

Concerning current tensions in the region that could lead to a larger military conflict, Paul cautions that “we should be aware of what NATO’s doing, what the European Union is doing, and what our CIA is doing, and how we’re sponsoring one side over the other without looking at what the people in Crimea and eastern Ukraine are actually wanting themselves.”

Paul, who founded the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity in 2013 after retiring from the US House of Representatives, also discusses Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign in the interview.

  1. This man could have been our President if more voters had pulled their heads out of their butts.

  2. Considering the evil, vile nature of our foreign interventionism, and the millions of lives that it takes, it’s no wonder the world views the US as the “evil empire”. Why are American citizens not screaming at the top of their lungs for this BS to stop? Ignorance, apathy, self-centeredness, and arrogance are just a few reasons. The epitome of arrogance is how we permit this evil behavior, and then point fingers at everyone but ourselves when planes fly into our buildings. I no longer recognize the country I grew up in and fought for.
