Summary

Both Europe and the US want to have Ukraine fragmented. And Russia as well. They have been working on it for the past three years.

Disproof

Both the EU and the US support Ukrainian, as well as Russian territorial integrity. In fact, both the EU and the US have imposed sanctions on Russia precisely for violation of Ukrainian territorial integrity.
