The Ukraine crisis simmered Wednesday, if not with actual fighting, then with fighting words from the key outside players in the conflict: the United States and Russia, whose foreign minister accused Washington of “running the show” in Kiev.
In an interview with state-run RT, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov lamented how he felt U.S. officials were quick to blame his nation for everything awry in Ukraine and to insist Moscow can unilaterally solve it all. Lavrov said that while those in Ukraine’s east and south who defiantly oppose the Kiev-based government are “not puppets” of the Kremlin, such a characterization would describe the relationship between Ukraine’s leadership in Kiev and the United States.
“(Americans) have, I think, overwhelming influence,” he said. “They act in a much more open way, without any scruples, compared to the Europeans … You cannot avoid the impression that they are running the show very much, very much.”
As proof, Lavrov pointed to the timing of the Ukrainian government’s relaunch of its security operation just after a two-day visit from U.S. Vice President Joe Biden. He claimed acting President Oleksandr Turchynov has “ordered the army to shoot at … people if they are engaged in peaceful protests,” yet hasn’t disarmed extremists and what he called “the right sector.”
