Ukrainian television: “US' external control” is country’s last chance

04.11.2017, Ukraine.

Only the US external control could save collapsing Ukrainian statehood, journalist Dmitry Gordon said on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel on November 3, Politnavigator informed.

The journalist is convinced that the corruption in Ukraine has reached the scale when the country can’t deal with it by itself.

“Sometimes, I think about breaking the vicious circle, and for now I can see only a single way out. Again, I will say now, and many will start to loathe, only the external control, though not European, because Europe is very busy with its own problems. Only the US’ external control, I don’t see any other way. We can’t deal with it by ourselves, we can’t”, Gordon said.

After coup d’etat in Ukraine in 2014 and the following severing of relations with Russia, the Ukrainian economy collapsed catastrophically. Foreign loans and tranches, which are the only means to save Ukraine from bankruptcy, are being provided under the condition of meeting stiff requirements of implementing economic, political, and social reforms.

Editorial Comment

A new twist in the standoff between diverse Ukrainian political forces is developing. Saakashvili attacks the head of the state. But at the same time, there’s no unity in the ruling elite. Recently, the son of Internal Affairs Minister Arsen Avakov was arrested and released soon afterwards. It is frequently asserted that it is Avakov who controls the majority of Ukrainian nationalists’ military units. As far as Poroshenko is concerned, his position becomes less and less firm, because when the power in the country is being defined by numbers of militants that are ready to execute your orders, losing the support of law enforcement agencies means losing the power completely, if not physical elimination. Meanwhile, “maidan” 3.0 flags are waving on the horizon.
