What we are going to see is less and less cooperation from Europe in the United States’ antagonism of Russia. The Ukraine government, under Yanukovych, was overthrown with the help of the United States (after he accepted the more generous aid package of $15 billion that was offered by Putin).
But Der Spiegel showed that by going with the IMF deal, Ukraine would have lost about $160 billion worth of trade with Russia. I bring that up because it all ties into why you are going to see less and less cooperation from Europe to antagonize Russia via pressure from the United States. It goes back to the bottom line. Europe does a lot of business with Russia and vice versa. So when the United States imposed the sanctions and pushed for the imposition of sanctions on Russia, it hurt the European businesses.
