"play the United States in the post-Soviet space is to bring to power them profitable entities. Here Shevardnadze, how much it is in Georgia has been flexible with the Americans, but even replaced it, brought to power Saakashvili through a coup" — said Pushkov.
The ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych, said the Senator was trying to be a good partner for the Western States, in the end, the leaders of these countries supported the Maidan, and the foreign Ministers of Poland, France and Germany have given written guarantees to Yanukovych that he will have a truce with the opposition, a few months later new elections, but the next day they these guarantees "thrown in the trash".
