Part 1: Washington’s Foreign Policy Tools or Biden Visits Kiev || Vice-President John Biden came to Kiev to see with his own eyes how the events unfold in the country. The second part of the article will be devoted to the results of the visit. Here it’s important to state the fact that Ukraine serves as an irritant for Moscow which may turn into its enemy and that’s the only thing Washington needs Ukraine for. The situation in the country has deteriorated to the point of bringing it to the brink of civil war, but Washington does not care. The main thing is to keep the puppet regime in power. Biden is an author of «color revolutions» policy and the person responsible for staging unrest in other countries, for him Ukraine is just another testing ground no different from North Africa…

Americans are not fantasy prone people, they always have a pattern to follow and they gauge all other nations with their own «democratic criterion» ignoring racial and religious specific features. The same thing is repeated in Kiev. The White House says that Biden will meet leaders of civil society to discuss their role in strengthening democratic institutions.

It’s not an occasion that NGOs are in the focus of his attention, billions of dollars are spent to keep them afloat and they are expected to produce the pre-programmed results. The Ukraine’s government has been using every occasion to stress its independence while it is quite docile and submissive towards all kinds of NGOs and foreign special agencies operatives acting on the Ukraine’s territory. No matter US NGOs always emphasize how open, democratic and transparent they are, in reality they act as close clubs with the criteria for personnel enlistment normally practiced by the CIA when it chooses the agents for the mission of strengthening American influence.

As a rule, the leading positions are held by specially selected persons ready to represent the US interests in other countries, Ukraine in the given case, for financial remuneration. They try to involve Ukrainian experts and elite into their activities while discussions and seminars are used to collect information on the country, its politics, military potential, economy, as well as religious and social life. Then the data is sent to corresponding centers of information processing and analysis in the USA.

The Unites States accounts for the major part of foreign NGOs in Ukraine, including such well-known ones as: NDI (the National Democratic Institute), IRI (the International Republican Institute), and NED (the National Endowment for Democracy). The US embassy in Ukraine is actively involved in the process of external funding or grants distribution. The international «Vozrozhdenie» is held in special esteem responsible for 500-600 US-sponsored projects. The organization is a brainchild of financial magnate George Soros. The outstanding merits taken into account, «Vozrozhdenie» is made responsible for funds allocated to media, health care, sociology and other needs.

Poland has remembered recently that some Ukraine’s territories belonged to it in the past, so it launched active propaganda activities in border areas. It does not carry out these activities independently; the United States uses the Polish NGOs as tools of US foreign policy. The Poland’s role is limited by facilitating the expansion of US NGOs presence in Ukraine. The mission is the same – to collect information and sent it to the US, as well as the creation of information space to meet the United States interests in the region.

Subject to Russophobia, Poland and the United States are ready to instigate and provoke hostility of Ukrainians towards Russia. Polish NGOs have spread around a network of branches formally operating to create civil society. The Pravy Sector nationalist radicals have their hand in their activities. Poland is constantly working to penetrate state and public structures of Ukraine.

Take the Foundation Aid to Poles in the East (Fundacja Pomoc Polakom na Wschodzie) founded in 1992 with the help of Polish Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Senate and the Ministry of Culture. The formally declared goals envision providing aid to Kresy ("Eastern Borderlands) diaspora, the development of Polish language and culture, national spirit and self-consciousness, creating favorable conditions for political projects, cooperating with Polish organizations abroad to make them interconnected with Polish groups. But it’s enough to have a look at those who head the Foundation to understand it has close connection with the state: its special services and propaganda apparatus. Now Warsaw has a free hand to expand its influence in Ukraine while the Ukrainian government has forgotten that it rules an independent country allowing the United States and Poland to do what they want on Ukrainian soil.

Ukraine has become a safe haven for NGOs that propagate extremism, separatism, and nationalism and are involved in manipulation of people’s consciousness going as far as outright meddling into internal affairs. According to different estimates, there are over 500 international NGOs which use Internet as the main instrument of operation. Quite often they assume the role of judges on state politics and public views. They act according to what the United States tells them to do becoming a force to bolster radicals. There are special interagency groups in US intelligence community which coordinate the NGO’s activities in Ukraine. For instance, the National Intelligence Council (NIC) has the National Intelligence for Russia and Eurasia within its structure. The unit is under the Director of National Intelligence and is responsible for National Intelligence Estimate, the report prepared on the basis of open sources information and regularly submitted to the President of the United States. Along with other services operatives it takes part in guiding the activities of Western and pro-Western NGOs in Eastern Europe and the former USSR creating a multi-echelon network of influence.

Ukrainians are to go through hard times being imposed the foreign pattern of democracy as Washington grossly meddles into the internal affairs of the state situated thousands of miles away from CONUS. The White House has assumed the role of the Kiev regime’s tutor, thus making itself responsible for the crimes committed by the Ukrainian interim rulers against their own people. It tries to distract the attention away from the Ukrainian regime’s failure by inciting hatred against Russians. The history of the two brotherly nations is distorted, the Russian speakers are oppressed while the Russian language is being squeezed out, Russians are declared to be a national minority and the Ukrainian patriots in the South-East hitting the streets in protest along with their families are called separatists. The putschists came to power as a result of coup and have their hands soaked in blood of their compatriots. But everyone who refuses to kneel before them are declared to be outlaws. There are millions of them - the people presumed to breach the law, they account for a large part of the country’s population. Many thousands of Ukrainian young people are at a loss in the contemporary world having lost moral orientation. Spiritual revival and break-up with the ideology imposed from outside is what the Ukraine of today needs most of all. US-funded NGOs have no role to play. Vice-President Biden calls these organizations the «civil society leaders» while discussing their role aimed at strengthening the regime which is fighting its own people.

Part 2: De-escalation in Ukraine as Seen by Joe Biden || According to the White House statement, the Vice-President Joe Biden’s visit to Ukraine was to demonstrate the support of Ukraine by the United States. Washington realizes the interim government in Kiev is on the verge of collapse. But its fall would be tantamount to a defeat suffered by the United States. Biden landed in Kiev to make the US save face and define the ways to retreat if need be. Under the pretext of global commitments, the White House is focused on the local-scale mission to maintain power in Ukraine in the hands of its puppets…The country is in disarray; the plan to convert it into an anti-Russian springboard has failed. Here is another US global failure and Biden had to cover it up by statements calling for «defense of Ukraine’s unity and independence and the restoration of its national honor and pride». But the results of the visit tell a different story.

First, nobody has any doubts now that the imposters in Kiev fully depend on Washington. The crisis in Ukraine is spreading around to encompass the whole nation. The situation needs urgent measures to be taken. The Americans make another mistake trying to substitute the comprehensive management of the national crisis with the stated «de-escalation» in the East.

Second, it is becoming clear for Washington that the Kiev rulers cannot defend US interests in Ukraine as expected. The American influence spreads only on a limited number of individual Ukrainian politicians with rather low rating of popularity. The US frustration was demonstrated by the way the would-be election slated for May was discussed by the parties. No pre-election campaign is possible when the central powers have occupied the whole regions using force. The whole election process boiled down to a long list of candidates, but there is no one there the United States could rely on. How could a «democratic» victory be guaranteed when the majority of population has no wish to express its will at all? But Vice-President Biden told Kiev to go on with the mission.

Third, Biden should be remembered that he personally is responsible for the collapse of Ukraine’s statehood. By the end of January Biden urged Ukraine’s President Yanukovych to address the protesters' legitimate concerns and protect democratic freedoms. Biden said back then that violence by any side is unacceptable but only Ukraine's government can ensure an end to the crisis. The Vice-President also told Yanukovych that more violence would have consequences for Ukraine's relationship with the U.S., which is considering sanctions. There is a face-about now. He urges the new Kiev rulers to use force in Eastern Ukraine. Back in January Biden was calling for meeting the demands of peaceful demonstrators stressing the importance of dialogue with the opposition and the need to find a way out of the crisis on the basis of compromise. Now he wants the meetings banned in the East. According to him, the expression of people’s will shake the «foundation of democratic society». Only very naïve people cannot see how brazenly hypocritical he is.

Fourth, his remarks in the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) were unusually harsh. Again he stressed that the Russia’s meddling into the internal affairs of Ukraine was unacceptable. Just a few days before the Crimea referendum Kerry threatened it by saying that «diplomatic means of crisis management could be exhausted soon». The US warnings have failed to produce the expected results. It’s time for the US administration to re-set the approach towards Russia.

Joe Biden shared his vision of the Russia’s place on the international arena with the Wall Street Journal in an interview. According to him, the situation in the world is changing while Russia tries to stick to the shaky past risking to lose face and the imperial posture. Still he admitted that Washington was to act cautiously. He even cited his father who told him to never drive a man into a corner with no escape. He hit the nail right on the head. But Biden, Jr., is driving the United States into a dead end in Ukraine, the dead end that is far from leaving an opportunity to escape. There is nothing in concrete terms the Kiev’s curator could offer.

Fifth, speaking at a meeting with Ukrainian legislators, Mr. Biden said the United States supported Ukraine facing «humiliating threats». It’s evident he meant Russia. Still, many Ukrainian MPs who had no sympathy for Russia, found the economic aid offered by the United States to be embarrassing. The US is to provide an additional $50m for political and economic reforms in Ukraine, including $11m to help run the presidential election due on 25 May. And further $8m is being provided for non-lethal military assistance, such as bomb disposal equipment and radios. It’s nothing in comparison with what was allocated for the coup. Ukrainians are upset to be offered their share of crumbs from the master's table. Kiev still remembers the total amount of economic aid it has received from Russia since the days of the Soviet Union’s collapse was around $250 billion.

Sixth, the visit showed that the United States is prone to discuss the fate of the country behind the scenes talking to illegal authorities. The blindness of Kiev is stunning. They look at the homeland through the prism of hostility towards Russia. The anti-Russia optics distorts the reality beyond recognition. The calls of the Voce-President to «stop talking and start acting» pursue the only goal – to make Ukraine finally collapse turning it into an America satellite threatening its neighbors. I mean not Russia alone, but all the neighbors.

America does not care about the opinion of European allies. It had not come into the Vice-President’s head to hold preliminary consultations with the European Union’s partners. One gets the impression he has never read the Geneva final statement on Ukraine signed by Europeans. Biden warned Russia that further "provocative behavior" would lead to "greater isolation" looks too archaic, like something that has no relation to the recent diplomatic endeavors on the Ukraine’s crisis management. Talking about the «de-escalation» Biden continues attempts to make Kiev start a war against its own people.
