International Policy Digest writes that the senators described Ukraine as an “uncontrollable challenge” for the United States and the European Union.
International financial institutions are keeping Ukraine afloat with billions of dollars. However, because of “dizzying corruption” and unproductive spending on the war in the Donbass, these efforts of the world community seem useless.
In recent years, the Ukrainian gross domestic product (GDP) has fallen as trained Ukrainians flee the country in search of better economic conditions.
According to the International Policy Digest, no journalists were present at the meeting because the Ukrainian side had requested a media black-out. The country is not interested in media coverage because of “growing radical movements and the spread of aggression in Ukrainian society”.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has set the course for the prosecution of his political opponents, according to the magazine. The courts in the country are controlled by politicians and oligarchs and are not really independent. This will prove the case against the former Ukrainian president, Viktor Yanukovich, which is an example of a “parody of the court”.
In addition, Yanukovich’s influence on residents of the self-declared ethnic republics of Donetsk and Lugansk could play a positive role in resolving the conflict.
From the point of view of International Policy Digest, the administration of the US President, Donald Trump, must take measures to counteract the Ukrainian “economic and political spiral of death”.
Because if the “hostility between Ukraine and Russia” escalated, Europe would be forced to play an active role in the conflict.
“In order to prevent the crash of Ukraine into chaos, an internal reconciliation must be seen as a first step,” writes the magazine.
