From FB page: Support Ukraine, Ukrainians in USA

“Let’s be clear about this: It’s well known that once NordStream2 is completed, the corrupt pipeline project will not only help fund Russia’s unlawful war against Ukraine, but will make Ukraine more vulnerable militarily because the existing pipeline structure in Ukraine will no longer be of use to Russia.
The existing gas pipeline in Ukraine has acted as a kind of protective barrier, preventing Russia from moving further into Ukraine militarily. Russia stopped short of the pipeline so it wouldn’t damage the line that runs Russian gas into the EU. NS2 will end this.
As I said, this is WIDELY known. All power brokers and decisions makers in Germany know this. They know this well in Washington. Allowing NS2 to exist is to directly support Moscow in waging war against Ukraine. This is not overstatement, but fact.
So I really don’t care about the supportive rhetoric or other inadequate support Ukraine receives in its defence against Russia. At this point in time, we should be calling things for what they are in plain language: Germany and the US are effectively acting as partners with Moscow.
More evidence of this is the mounting pressure on Ukraine to accept damaging positions of the Minsk Accords that will reward Russia by officially giving it direct political control within Ukraine. This is despite the fact that EVERYONE knows it is a poison pill for Ukraine’s sovereignty.
Steinmeier’s Formula, and the “cluster approach” are the main vehicles of implementing the Minsk Accords that are being pushed by the likes of Merkel. For Ukraine, they’re THE most destructive ways of implementing the Minsk Accords which Russia has ceaselessly violated for years.
To try to cover up their political and moral corruption, Germany, now aided by the US, is going to pretend to put together some “protective” “agreement” that “Russia will have to abide by”. But we know the Kremlin wipes its ass with such agreements, and then West tweets “concern” statements.
Russia is only as powerful as countries like the US and Germany allow it to be. And what we have seen from both for nearly two decades now is that they reward this authoritarian terrorist regime, breathing life and legitimacy into it, rather than using legal tools to force change…”
