Ron Paul: US is pushing its own agenda in Ukraine
As unrest in Ukraine leads to changes in the country’s government, a US politician is blasting the United States’ role in the events. Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) says the US should not have threatened sanctions against Ukrainian politicians, and should have let the government in Kiev handle their own crisis internally. “The usual interventionists in the US have long meddled in the internal affairs of Ukraine,” Paul said in a statement on his website. “They keep pushing their own agenda for Ukraine behind the scenes, even as they ridicule anyone who claims US involvement.” RT’s Meghan Lopez takes a closer look at Paul’s statement.
