Ukraine Proxy War on Russia: the Empire Folds?

In March this year, Henry Kissinger wrote: Ukraine must become a bridge between East and West. Russia, he said:
must accept that to try to force Ukraine into a satellite status, and thereby move Russia’s borders again, would doom Moscow to repeat its history of self-fulfilling cycles of reciprocal pressures with Europe and the United States.

The West must understand that, to Russia, Ukraine can never be just a foreign country. Russian history began in what was called Kievan-Rus. The Russian religion spread from there. Ukraine has been part of Russia for centuries, and their histories were intertwined before then. Some of the most important battles for Russian freedom, starting with the Battle of Poltava in 1709 , were fought on Ukrainian soil. The Black Sea Fleet — Russia’s means of projecting power in the Mediterranean — is based by long-term lease in Sevastopol, in Crimea. Even such famed dissidents as Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and Joseph Brodsky insisted that Ukraine was an integral part of Russian history and, indeed, of Russia.
In conclusion, he wrote:
1. Ukraine should have the right to choose freely its economic and political associations, including with Europe.

2. Ukraine should not join NATO, a position I took seven years ago, when it last came up.

3. Ukraine should be free to create any government compatible with the expressed will of its people.
In the more than six months since Kissinger offered the only possible sane position on Ukraine, the US and its vassal European states, plus Canada and Australia have worked diligently to stoke civil strife in Ukraine as a means of provoking Russia into a proxy war with the West. The result has been a spectacular display of Western stupidity, dishonesty, grotesque hypocrisy, and the warm embrace of avowed Nazis and genocidal Russophobic maniacs, with results as humiliating, though not as painful, as they deserve to be.

But, as Winston Churchill remarked, the Americans can always be relied upon to do the right thing — after they have tried every alternative, and the truth of Churchill's maxim as applied to Ukraine seems to be confirmed by the recent willingness of one America's most bullshit-ridden broadcast channels to allow the truth about Ukraine to be stated baldly, as in this interview with Prof. Anton Fedyashin of the American University, Washington, DC:
