Russia's foreign minister on Saturday accused the United States of encouraging Ukraine to challenge Moscow and heavily weighing in on the European Union.
Speaking in televised remarks Saturday, Sergey Lavrov said that "our American colleagues still prefer to push the Ukrainian leadership toward a confrontational path."
He added that chances for settling the Ukrainian crisis would have been higher if it only depended on Russia and Europe.
Ukraine on Friday signed a free-trade pact with the EU, the very deal that a former Ukrainian president dumped under pressure from Moscow in November, fueling huge protests that eventually drove him from power. Moscow responded by annexing the mainly Russian-speaking Crimean Peninsula in March, and a pro-Russian insurgency in eastern Ukraine erupted the month after, leading to the developments that have brought Russia-West relations to their lowest point since the Cold War times.

You know, for as much of a wimp that McCain is (and this forum knows), the Russians sure seem afraid of him.
He sure does whine a lot when thing don’t go his way. Maybe the EU should send him some flowers?
This may play well at home in Russia, but I suspect any country not committed to becoming part of the Russian empire would bridle at the Russian foreign minister’s verbiage. Even Khrushchev of “We will bury you” fame would make a better foreign minister than this guy.
Russian arms and operatives inside the Ukraine beating anyone senseless who doesn’t agree with them, and Russia belches up a comment that some outside nation is fomenting unrest in the Ukraine.
Hmmmm, what was their first clue?
The Ukrainians were sitting on their rear ends reminiscing about the good old days when they were controlled by Russia until the worthless and aging John McCain came along and told them what to do.
Game are played on both sides. It is time to stop playing with people’s lives.
Maybe the Ukrainians were pining for a strong leader like McCain, and Putin was not up to the task? LOL
Things were going well for Putin until McCain went shirtless on the Maidan.
KGB Putin is the only one pushing Ukraine to war. Dirty Russky murderers always blame the USA for what they themselves are responsible for.
Putin and Putin alone is responsible for starting a fratricidal war against Ukraine because he is an unrepentant Chekist who dreams of reassembling the cursed EVIL EMPIRE he loyally served.
