Jacek Kaminski — Right Sector changing sides?

You read that right. Politics is amazing. How the worm turns.
J.Hawk's Comment: It may well be that, since Ukraine appears to be doomed to a loose confederation of Novorossiya and Banderland(for lack of a better word), Yarosh is simply auditioning to be the acceptable (to Moscow) candidate for the post of the head of Banderland. His statements concerning Ukraine's non-aligned status appear to be aimed at that audience, given that is the main strategic objective that the Kremlin is pursuing. The Right Sector did not lose its collective mind. On the contrary, it may have finally found it.

Also, Yarosh's move I think confirms he is not the creature of Kiev, Berlin, or Washington. He is and has been an independent political operator in his own right whose services are and have always been for sale for the highest bidder. Since neither Washington nor Kiev are prepared to bid very much in order to retain his loyalty, he's evidently decided to explore viable alternatives. It also helps that the Right Sector is not as stridently Nazi as, say, Biletsky's Azov who is not someone with whom DPR, LPR, or the Kremlin would ever do business. But Yarosh has positioned himself pretty cleverly by not embracing the ideology of Great Ukraine nearly as strongly as Biletsky.

If this is true it's a pretty unreal development and I wonder how Washington will take this. Nuland must be having fits.

A lot of people around the world are starting to figure out that the US is not on their side but rather is it for what the US can get out of it. That doesn’t always work out the way people had expected it to.

Once that thing cranks up nobody is going to care about Ukraine except the IMF...

Good thing the IMF isn't in the SP 500 ;)
