RPI Director Daniel McAdams was interviewed yesterday on the deteriorating situation in Ukraine. Following is the interview in its entirety:
Making quick judgments over the situation in Ukraine, including the latest bus tragedy, suits Washington’s political goals as, unlike the EU, it is incapable of backing down, Daniel McAdams, Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute, told RT.
Twelve people were killed Tuesday in the shelling of a bus in east Ukraine.
OSCE Ukraine mission representative Michael Bochurkivt said group monitors visited the site of the attack and would later present a report on their findings.
Meanwhile, the US State Department was quick to draw conclusions and immediately accused east Ukrainian rebel forces.
“Today’s vicious and repeated attacks on the Donetsk Airport and the shelling of a bus that killed 10 people and wounded 13 are just the latest egregious violations of the commitments made by the Russia-backed separatists,” stated State Department spokesperson Marie Harf on Tuesday.
