Ukraine is now almost completely under Washington’s control thanks to the US meddling that was the cause for the Maidan and the war in Donbas. The “powers that be” in Kiev push a hardcore anti-Russian/pro-EU/pro-Western agenda, because they have to serve masters who got them into power. Presenting Ukraine as a sovereign nation that needs to be won over to America’s side is a complete lie.
Leftist Western circles, which were well-connected with Socialist International and contributed to NATO’s establishment, elaborated the anti-Russian “Anaconda” concept. The conflicts in Iran and Afghanistan at the turn of the 1980s, USSR’s Perestroika, which provoked separatism in the USSR and the Tiananmen crisis during the late stage of Perestroika, were not coincidences.
A similar West-instigated “Anaconda” plan is currently targeting China. It includes the whole perimeter of border conflicts: the Korean peninsula, Taiwan, the South China sea, the Indian-Chinese border in Arunachal Pradesh, disputes around Nepal and Bhutan, Kashmir and Indian-Pakistan conflict, civil war in Afghanistan, crisis around the Iranian nuclear programme and political struggles in a number of South-East Asian countries. The “Anaconda” is crawling to the Chinese territory itself when we talk about long-time attempts in Xinjiang and Tibet.
This is conspiracy which presents many social and political events in various countries as a consequence of West-instigated provocations against Russia and China. It is consistent with a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the West's attempts to encircle Russia and to destabilise China.
See earlier disinformation cases alleging that the West destroyed the USSR, that the Hong Kong protests are the West’s revenge on China for not waging war against Russia, that the goal of the US global “Anaconda” strategy is to limit the living space of geopolitical opponents, and that the West's objective is to encircle Russia entirely thanks to the "Anaconda ring" and "Great Turan" doctrines.
