UKRAINE: Dennis Kucinich's opinion

Interviewed by Bill O'Reilly of Fox News of on 4 March 2014, Ohio Congressman and Democratic Presidential candidate, Dennis Kucinich, said this in response to O’Reilly asking him what he’d do in the Ukraine if he was President:
"What I'd do is not have USAID and the National Endowment for Democracy working with U.S. taxpayers' money to knock off an elected government in Ukraine, which is what they did. I wouldn't try to force the people of Ukraine into a deal with NATO against their interest or into a deal with the European Union, which is against their economic interest…

The US has been involved covertly and behind the scenes with the CIA, with the National Endowment for Democracy and USAID to stir up trouble in Ukraine.”
O’Reilly countered:
"From what I'm hearing, you're blaming the USA for subverting Ukraine in the first place, thereby giving Putin a pass to go in and invade.”
Kucinich replied:
"That's close. We should be concerned about the Ukrainian people, because they're being used right now. They would be used by the IMF in a new austerity program, by NATO to go on the doorstep of Russia."
