In “1997”, Zbigniew Brzeziński (National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter) wrote a highly regarded book titled, “The Grand Chess Board” In it, he describes using covert elements to enmesh Russia in a war in Afghanistan… Some say this is what caused the collapse of the Soviet Union. This book outlines a plan to use Ukraine as a battering ran against Russia. A debilitated Russia state would broken into 3 zones all the way to the Pacific. It is then, that the US would deal with China… This is the product of the mind of a mad man. I believe that this is the template that is being used by the signers of the PNAC (Project for the New American Century.) and Victoria Nuland wife of Robert Kagan a composer of the PNAC document.

Crimea was independent, even before Ukraine became independent. In January 1991, while the Soviet Union still existed, Crimea held a referendum to be managed from Moscow and not from Kiev. It thus became an Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic. Ukraine did not get its own independence referendum until six months later in August 1991. At that point, Crimea did not consider itself a part of Ukraine. But Ukraine did not accept this. Between 1991 and 2014, it was a constant struggle between the two entities. Crimea had its own constitution with its own authorities. In 1995, encouraged by the Budapest Memorandum, Ukraine overthrew the Crimean government with special forces and abrogated its constitution. But this is never mentioned, as it would shed a completely different light on the current development.
