Washington sees the European Union (EU) as vital to its global hegemony ambition, as we have demonstrated in many posts. Therefore it was inevitable that the puppet government of Ukraine, installed after the CIA / US State Department engineered coup deposed the democratically elected (if criminally corrupt) government and replaced it with the current government headed by Willy Wonka oligarch Petro Poroshenko.
That of course led to the annexation of Crimea, a region with an ethnic Russian majority, by Vladimir Putin's government in Russia and the outbreak of civil war in east Ukraine as pro Russia separatists set up a breakaway state in the Donbass region.
After falling for EU leaders promises that full membership of the wannabe federal European Superstate (Great Germany?) would be fast tracked if Ukraine rejected Russia as a partner for a free trade treaty, the country's businessment are learning that in the bureaucratic jargon of Brussels 'free' does not mean without tarriff. Ukraine's top chicken farmer and former Poroshenko aide found that new EU trade quotas imposed on Ukraine prevent the expansion of Ukraine's economy.
The European Union's free trade agreement with Ukraine turned out to be a "defrauding of Ukraine," according to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko's associate agriculture tycoon Yuriy Kosyuk.
In an interview with US government foreign language broadcaster Voice of America's Ukrainian service, Kosyuk said the new free trade agreement will not help his company, as the import limit set by Brussels for chickens is a fraction of his company's production alone. The EU deal also restricts Ukraine's ability to export to non - EU countries.
Nicknamed Ukraine's "chicken oligarch," Kosyuk controls nearly two thirds of Ukraine's chicken production. Until December 2014, he was the deputy head of Poroshenko's administration.
"Europe talks of the Free Trade Area with Ukraine, and at the same time a load of exceptions and limitations are put on the export of Ukrainian goods. Because of this, the free trade area is only one-way, into Ukraine," Kosyuk told Voice of America.
Which, if the truth was ever told, is the situation many British businesses have encountered in trying to export to Europe, and what many British people (myself included) have for many years come up against when seeking responsible, well paid positions in Europe. In my case the bureaucratic obstructionism prevented me from taking a role as an external consultant. Had I ben contracted by a British consultancy to work in The Netherlands there would have been no problem, but because a Dutch company were trying to employ me direct, all sorts of bureaucratic obstacles stood in their way.
Cameron's EU Deal As Worthless As Neville Chamberlain's 'Peace In Our Time.'?
Opinion polls show Britain is evenly divided on the question of whether to leave or remain in the EU, though it has been suggested up to 10 million other voters, many of them women, have yet to make a decision. How they cast their vote will shape the future of the world’s fifth largest economy and the EU itself.
