I only call United States and EU jokes because they make many promises, over many months, for helping Ukraine. And, they break almost all their promises to us. And, every time they try "helping", they pour more petrol on fires. Things here would not be this bad, if EU and United States didn't meddle so much.
Putin isn't a angel, I know that. His hands aren't perfect and clean, in what happens here. Or, that Russia stays always innocent in our problems. But, I still trust him and Russian government more than Obama and the West.
And, my lacking trust in United States and EU is for their governments. I know many wonderful people in America, and West Europe, they're friends and their hearts are kind, and good. I only don't think the leaders of their countries, have good intentions for my country, only selfish ones.
