Looking to further undercut Russia along its frontier to spite them over the Crimea dispute, the US State Department has pledged support for “all post-Soviet states” and are sending officials to Central Asia.
The announced visits come as analysts see Russia trying to improve ties with those same states, Krygyzstan, Kazakhstan, and others, with an eye toward bringing them into the Eurasian Union.
Russia has envisioned the Eurasian Economic Union as a regional bloc across eastern Europe and central Asia similar to the European Union. With the loss of Ukraine in a recent regime change, Russia needs to find partners in the east.
Though State Department officials talked up supporting the “territorial integrity” of the Central Asian nations, there is no indication that Russia has even nominal designs on the territory of any of those nations, beyond hoping to bring them into an economic union.

We have been saying this for years, USG is following and planing Paul Wolfowitz and his gang of warmongering AIPAC since 1990, the idea was presented to Bill Clinton where the USG and Saudis managed to create the Balkan, Yugoslavia war, the creation of Kosovo and dividing Yugoslavia. Dividing Yugoslavia, creating Kosovo was about creating a military path toward Central Asia from Europe. Each and every EU and US government been following the path, by creating new or supporting Iraq war, the 2006 Israel attacking Lebanon creating the Israel-Lebanon war was about Israel conquering Lebanon letting US forces and NATO entering Lebanon, then Syrian and now Turkish government wanting to invade Syria. Obama or Hillary Clinton, the chosen warmongers, are no different and for state department invested $5billion into a Neo fascism regime in Ukraine is yet another; furthermore, for states department investing, wanting to support "all Post-Soviet States" is yet another Paul Wolfowitz AIPAC idea taking shape, is a invitation, intimidation by USG and EU governing body to start their wars with Russia. Then they well deal with China.
It is a retaliation for Russian government not accepting the Saudis tyrant regimes offer of 15 billion dollars for Russian arms in exchange for Russian not supporting the Syrian government which was refused by president Putin. State department is following many idea set fourth by many countries internal and outside forces for NATO to build a military bases in post states soviet states and entire Middle East, the concept is not new, the Iraq war was about NATO-USA-Israel militarism being able to enter Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Iran, they already occupying Afghanistan and there is the Syrian on going, then the Ukraine political shift to a Neo fascism supported by USG-EU governing body and Swedish bankers-government. They are going to use the same deceptive politics in countries of interests in Central Asia asking Turkish, a NATO member for help, the final out come is the inevitable Third World War.
So much for the snide denials that the FedGov is trying to encircle Russia.
You mean the "missile defense shield" being erected in Poland ISN'T to shoot down Iranian missiles??? Oh, the shame…that our government would lie to us. Color me disappointed. Uh huh…
I guess they aren't smart enough to know that Russia is a 'post-Soviet state'
You don't teach new tricks to the old Running Pavlovian Dogs of FedGov.
Since day one of the 1917 October revolution a policy of encirclement of the USSR by capitalist countries was in effect. The Black Sea area was a favorite place to try and bite off parts of the Soviet Union. The Soviets are gone but the west, now led by the United States, still looks like it bites. What will it take to satiate the long time enemies of Russia, even after it adopted capitalism?
No thanks. We don't want your support.
US support will come at a price for the citizens of post-soviet nations in the form of IMF loans, US taxpayers will get stuck for aid and NATO required military upgrades, while the "elite" of the US and post soviet nations continue to pocket bribes, payoffs, and corrupt profits of every kind. This game is getting old.
More hope and change for the world. We hope they don't blow it up. Because that will change a lot of things.
wonder how Obama will label those states that don't support him, "Old Europe," and the one's that supported him, "Newer, modern Europe." A line from Rumsfeld.
Flattering as it is to us to see so many countries all accross the world copying the EU, as a matter of geographical reality, the "Eurasian Union" is a non-starter. It has practically no access to the open sea, an essentially characteristic for carrying on trade. The Black Sea and the Baltic are enclosed seas, accessible only through other countries' territorial waters and both lead out into semi-enclosed seas, easy to blockade in wartime. The Arctic Ocean is remote and of little use in winter and that leaves only Vladivostok (7 time zones east of Moscow but only 5 west of San Francisco!) and Magadan (8 time zones east), which also ices up in winter. That didn't matter to the semi-autarchic Soviet Union. It's disaster for a modern trading block. It's all just the pipedreams of a generation of Russians, now over 60, who have never quite accepted that the Soviet Union is gone for ever and who are now being pushed into retirement by younger people who made their lives in the post-Soviet world and who just want to be modern Europeans.
So what exactly does it mean to be a "modern European"? Aren't the Swiss a landlocked people too?
Well, at least someone can understand why access to a 'warm water port' has been a Russian strategic goal for the last four centuries. This of course is exactly the reason why Sevastapol is very important to the Russians. And why a person or a nation would have to be a total imbecile to think that Russia would just give that away.
Sounds like an expensive prospect.
That's ok. As long as what they are spending money on does absolutely no good for the American taxpayers who have to pay for this, then money is no object.
Its only when an American needs a job, or is starving, or doesn't have a roof over their head will the lectures begin about 'sacrifice'.
They will be eating at chinese restaurants…
