Do you honestly think U. S. messing around is that same as Russian messing around?
We lobby the Ukraine to join the E. U., and Russia invades Crimea and annexes it.
If it were Puerto Rico, do you think Puerto Rico would ever be free again?
Ukraine is on the other side of the world from the USA and we have no important interests there. Ukraine was also part of Russia going back a thousand years. Crimea was moved from Russia to Ukraine during the 1950’s by Khrushchev.
How America acquired PR is an interesting story and not in a way that supports your point.

Funny... I didn’t see lobbyists in the news; I saw armed gunmen.
