"Now they (the United States) are unfurling a war in Ukraine, after organizing a coup and putting their own people in charge, to use Ukraine as a detonator against Russia and Europe," Glazyev told reporters in the Kazakh capital, Astana.
"There is growing chaos in Ukraine, and the chaos is increasingly acquiring the traits of a global catastrophe," he said before Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan signed a treaty creating a new trading bloc.
Glazyev did not provide any evidence to support his comments but said unidentified foreign mercenaries had been seen arriving in Ukraine to fight pro-Russian armed rebels in the east.
His comments were characteristically confrontational for an adviser who has regularly staked out more radical positions than the Russian government or the Kremlin, which at times has distanced itself from his remarks.
The crisis in Ukraine, from which Russia has annexed the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea, has caused the worst tensions in relations with the West since the Cold War ended.
The United States has denied instigating events which forced the removal of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich, described by Moscow as a coup d'etat, and says it wants a peaceful resolution to the crisis. Washington has denied reports about U.S. mercenaries operating in Ukraine and says there is evidence of Russian support for the rebels there.
Pro-Russian separatists shot down a Ukrainian army helicopter on Thursday, killing 14 soldiers including a general, as government forces pressed ahead with an offensive to crush the rebellion.

Commies don’t like getting their asses kicked in.
Glazyez is a Kremlin front man, no doubt about it. Putin is the puppet master who pulls all the strings in Russia and in the infiltrated parts of Ukraine.
Now listen to Prof. Stephen Cohn on the John Batchelor show (at night) parrot the Russian line.
Print out this article and see if he doesn’t match it word for word. He’s the husband of The Nation’s publisher/editor Katrina Van DenHeuvel, an old red from way back. She was a protege’ of the Victor Navasky, who functioned as a coverup writer about the Communist Party USA when he was editor at The Nation and in his book “Naming Names”.
Cohen has been a top Soviet apologist for the past several decades or more.
We are not getting half the truth about what is happening in the Ukraine, good or bad.
Need to keep our eyes and ears open to Russian disinformation and propaganda.
