Why does Brzezinski need a “Finnish version” for Ukraine

On the day when a coup d'état took place in Kiev, February 22 2014, The Financial Times published an article by Zbigniew Brzezinski, “Russia needs to be offered a“ Finnish version ”for Ukraine” Ukraine). The speech of the veteran of the Cold War on the topic of Ukraine seemed so important to the newspaper that the next day she published the publication in a slightly enlarged version with a modified headline (Russianeedsa 'Finlandoption' for Ukraine)

So, why would the author of the “Game Plan” and the “Big Chessboard” suddenly need Ukraine as a “second Finland”?

Brzezinski, accustomed to handing out recommendations to many US administrations, now advises how to help the new regime in Kiev and keep Russia from decisive steps to protect its vital interests in Ukraine. He recommends that Washington "take such actions that will cost Moscow economic losses," believing that "modern Russia is not economically invulnerable for the consequences" of such actions.

Brzezinski’s long-time idea is that Ukraine is the key to the entire Russian (post-Soviet) geopolitical space. Until now, this key was given into the hands of the Americans, say, not quite. The recent difficulties that the United States has on the “Big Chessboard”, that is, in post-Soviet Eurasia, are attributed to the “big Zbig” with what he calls the “nostalgic dream of Vladimir Putin about the Eurasian Union”. Ukraine is therefore so important for the luminary of American geopolitics, that "Ukraine’s defense of its national rights is already strengthening the post-Soviet republics of Central Asia, in particular Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, in recognizing the need to show more rigidity in resisting Moscow’s continuing efforts to deprive them of their independence.”

Brzezinski's Fix Idea - Further fragmentation political map in the center of Eurasia (a prototype of this is the continued division of the post-Yugoslav space). Therefore, Brzezinski collapses with such force on attempts to integrate the post-Soviet space. All the hopes of an elderly master of geopolitical intrigue and Russia's inveterate hater are connected with the fact that the salvation of the “new Ukrainian democracy” (as he calls the regime established in Kiev after the coup) will indicate to Russia its future. Otherwise, Brzezinski intimidates, Russia threatens to “isolate itself and become a semi-stagnant imperialist relic.”

The February article by Brzezinski in The Financial Times clearly described the central task of those who listen to the political recommendations of the Polish-American strategist and should follow them, namely: at any price, even at the cost of a lot of blood, which the Yarosh-Turchinov-Yatsenyuk regime promises to the people of Ukraine rapprochement of this country with the post-Soviet states, united in the Customs Union and moving towards the creation on a contractual basis of the Eurasian Economic Union ...

As Brzezinski writes, “The United States could and should make it clear to Mr Putin that they are ready to use their influence in order for a truly independent and territorially indivisible Ukraine to pursue a policy towards Russia that is effectively being carried out by Finland.” The essence of the “Finnish choice for Ukraine,” according to Brzezinski, should be not to force Ukraine’s entry into NATO at the moment, but to seek for it “an ever-greater relationship with Europe.”

But why all the same Finland? It is easy to see that the non-aligned status of Finland is increasingly undergoing erosion as the Finnish armed forces are involved in the NATO program "Partnership for Peace and the development of other forms of military cooperation with the North Atlantic Alliance." But this is only one side of the issue. There is another one related to the use of Finland as a base of subversive activities in the territory of neighboring Russia.

In particular, we are talking about the Islamist terrorist group “Imarat Kavkaz”, which has found a safe haven from the Finns, into which it moved its Internet resource “Kavkaz-Center”. On the territory of Finland, under the guise of “scientific conferences”, seminars and trainings, the ideological treatment and training of the “democratic war” of citizens of the Russian Federation and other post-Soviet states involved in it is being carried out on the side of it. In Helsinki, they not only reconcile with this state of affairs, but also support the activities of Kavkaz Center, motivating their position with the fact that state borders should not be an obstacle to the “defense of democratic values”.

Something similar is destined for Ukraine, but not in the soft "Finnish", but in the hard "Slavic" version.

The head of the Council for National Security and Defense of Ukraine put by the “commandant of the Maidan” Andrei Paruby was put by the coup. His deputy was the leader of the neo-Nazi attack aircraft "Right Sector" Dmitry Yarosh.

Andrei Parubiy, in 1991, was, along with Oleg Tyagnibok, a co-founder of the radical nationalist party Freedom. Since 1996, Paruby has been the leader of the paramilitary youth nationalist organization Patriot of Ukraine, which in turn is part of the Right Sector association, the striking force of a perfect coup d'état.

Dmitry Yarosh is a “professional revolutionary” (they claim that he has never worked anywhere). In 1994, he became one of the leaders of the organization “Trident” named after Stepan Bandera, created under the patronage of the Ukrainian émigré organization “Brotherhood of OUN-UPA soldiers”. Since 2005, the leader of the Trident. For a long time he collaborated with the newly appointed head of the Security Service of Ukraine Valentin Nalyvaichenko, as well as with American and Canadian specialists in the "partisan war" among Ukrainian immigrants. An ardent supporter of the thesis that the war of Ukraine against Russia and the liberation of “Ukrainian territories” occupied by the “Russian Empire”, including the Kuban and the Far East, are inevitable.

Under these conditions, the proposed Finlandization of Ukraine by Brzezinski would not mean friendship and good neighborliness, but the transformation of Ukrainian territory into an outpost of subversive activity against Russia and its allies.

      Need to destroy the US monetary system
      Putin has long been talking about the reserve currency and he currently does not have a sacristy what currency it will be, but preferably the Chinese yuan, and China is interested in this and China is increasing gold for good reason, and the United States is pursuing a policy of intimidation, such as who is not dreaming against us , and many wanted to spit in the United States. The United States is weakening and they understand this as a patient before agony.

    For a long time, the hissing of the old lizard had not been heard ... I confessed thinking - at last, I had died out, choked with poison or whatever he had instead of saliva.
    But, alas, a staunch fighter, overcoming age-related marasmus and senile incontinence, again, with a victorious hiss, brandishes a chamber pot, sowing around him ... stinking ... moronic ... disgusting ...
    It’s time to have a rest, in a lyulu. Bye-bye ...

      Why hadn’t you fussed before? And I began to think when it struck.

      And because I did not expect such a reaction from Russia to the events in Kiev, I received V.S. Vysotsky as in that song
      ,, I measured his figure with an eye,
      And when he declared me a check -
      I bared my biceps inadvertently,
      He even took off his jacket for fidelity.

      And instantly in the hall it became quieter
      He noticed that I was getting up ...
      Apparently, he was not up to the chips -
      And the praised notorious Fisher
      He immediately agreed to a draw. " laughing He thought that, according to the same song, Russia can no longer - ,, Only in vain he jokes with our brother,
      I have a measure, even two:
      If he kills me,
      So I him - through the thigh with a grip,
      Or - a knight's move - on the head! "

    Old per.dun flies. In Ukraine, he turned out to be such a fake that he now does not know what to do, how to turn out the situation at least a little bit. Instead of the noble struggle of the West with an inadequate bloody Russian bear, the West turned out to be on the side of uncontrollable inadequate fascists planning to pacify the rebellious inhabitants of the country with the help of the army. It’s necessary to manage to get so lazy, this is Putin’s aerobatics. People who invested serious money in the old man’s projects will soon start asking him for the consequences, then the funniest thing will begin.

    Brzezik hasn’t had much predictions in Russia lately. His theory went its own way in isolation from reality towards conspiracy theories. His new insight is pulling the desired by the ears, according to the peculiarities of the senile appetite, no matter what. Thanks for the warning! But Ukraine is not Finland. Something does not fit with his predictions.

    What can I say, nits, you know what really really bothers me the most, it’s like having to hurt us in a perverted way so that we could hate us so fiercely! I don’t know if they would ask me what I would do now in Ukraine, I think my answer would be such, 24h to give people who want to lay down their arms or go to the side of the Crimea, I think our satellites are tracking all the accumulations of the troops in the warehouses, so ditp, well, and another volley if it’s not enough, the guys should be entered only later, well, and run them into the field in full, yes and good to roll cotton with them, cut off the west of Ukraine from the east with one throw But, Kiev, the city of the Russian cradle is urgently returned to the east, then it will be washed off for more than one year from this dirt! Well, on the back then it’ll just build one big road for the formula one! What kind of people are these from time to time, one grief to the other, only more, all good!

      no volleys needed.
      not a single shot is needed.
      Imagine how the Western world will be dragged by pleasure as the Slavs destroy each other.
      it will be enmity between Russians and Ukrainians for centuries, which is what they are striving for.
      diplomacy is working now.

    It seems to me that Brzezinski showed quite well the attitude of the American government towards the Ukrainian people. At the same time, he outlined the further plans of the US government in Ukraine. The role of cannon fodder for Ukrainians, inciting civil war. There is no government since the first Maidan in Ukraine. There is a theater, a circus in which Ukrainian politicians play a play to the tune of amers - "everything is fine in the country" - they could not allow the same resistance of the people as during the Great Patriotic War. For years, with the help of television and the media, people have turned off the instinct of self-preservation, critical thinking and a sense of being one nation.

    In Finland, monuments to Lenin are kept and cherished, as a person who first gave their country statehood. SO THAT in Ukraine the Finnish option is not possible. The Finns quietly helped defend Leningrad from the Nazis. RUSSIA cannot and should not tolerate fascist impostors at its borders.
