Summary

Ukraine is falling into total dependence on the United States for coal imports. It is a result of the freeze Kyiv imposed on rail and road cargo links against the parts of eastern Ukraine controlled by Russia-backed separatists.

Disproof

In 2017, Russia remained the largest coal supplier for Ukraine, which was looking to countries like the United States, South Africa and Australia to reduce its dependence on Russian coal imports. In January and February 2017, Ukraine imported $247.24 million worth of coal from Russia (69.1%), $65.4 million (18.3%) from the United States, $20.45 million (5.7%) from Kazakhstan, and $24.51 million (6.9%) from others. bit.ly/2v6ooUr,

Disproof

The Baltic states joined the EU and NATO based on independent foreign policy decisions. The process of state-building in Ukraine has all signs of a democratic process. The sanctions against Russia are a retaliatory measure, as it is a reaction to Russian aggression against Ukraine.bit.ly/2tmK7GA, .
