The EU’s moralistically loaded pressure on Kyiv to preserve peace and save lives, in Eastern Ukraine, is superficially understandable. The result, however, may be the same as in the cases of Transnistria, Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Crimea – the gradual dissolution of the newly independent post-Soviet states. Russia rather than any of the EU’s newly associated countries has been the main war-mongerer, divider and occupier in Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine. Given the multiple, close political, economic and other ties between Russia and Germany as well as the EU’s de facto indirect co-financing of the Kremlin’s expansionist policies through large trade with (almost 50%), and enormous investments in (approx. 75%), Russia, the pacifist pathos of many German comments on the “Ukrainian crisis” becomes increasingly sickening.
