In Ukraine, each presidential candidate coordinates his or her actions either with an American ambassador or with the US State Department directly. As a result, Washington does not even need to interfere in the local monkey business. However, at some point, the US may decide that the local games went too far and start threatening US strategic interests. In this case, Ukrainian authorities will begin receiving direct orders from Washington.
Ukrainian oligarchs are likely to attempt to divide Ukraine into principalities where they will enjoy absolute power.
This is consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine's imminent disintegration and corruption. Despite the advantaged positions that some oligarchs enjoy in Ukraine, there is no grounding to support the claim that the country will disintegrate into "oligarchic principalities", as alleged in the case above.
