Their wealth, influence and self-interest in preventing further conflict is seen by some as the key to calming tensions and maintaining Ukraine's control in areas where pro-Russian activists have allegedly stoked separatist tensions.

In the end
Ultimately the Ukraine is a huge crisis. It is made worse by specific agendas of other nations. But one thing this crisis has shown clearly is that there is no true Union in Europe.
If there was they would help member states as a priority before taking in others. Greek orphanages are full to capacity, as people feel little alternative than abandoning their children. At times Greeks cannot get vital medicine. More than half do not expect to be able to pay this years taxes. It is a shambles. But the EU demands another pound of flesh.
Conclusion? Yes the EU is dead and it should be buried before it rots further and the stench posions the air completely.
