The biggest danger to Europe is the restoration of the USSR. Preventing this is the priority of German, French, American and other political forces. Western countries have a genetic fear of Russia’s strengthening and thereby provoke one conflict after another.
Trump might punish Zelenskyy for not fulfilling his demands by several means, including taking the IMF money back. Thus, Ukraine is not an independent state since its president is a hostage to American domestic politics.
Ukraine is a sovereign state. EU and US are not controlling Ukraine. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by most of the free world but is violated by Russia. The relations between the US and Ukraine represent bilateral cooperation between two independent countries. The US recognised Ukraine as an independent state on December 25, 1991. U.S. policy is centred on realising and strengthening a stable, democratic, prosperous, and free Ukraine more closely integrated into Europe and Euro-Atlantic structures. The US also released $250 million in military aid to Ukraine.
