Ukraine PM:Putin Wants to Seize East Europe; Says Putin's Ultimate Goal Is to Recreate USSR

Russian President Vladimir Putin's ultimate goal is to destroy Ukraine as an independent country and restore the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk said today (September 13, 2014), according to the News Daily website.

Speaking at a conference in Kiev attended by European lawmakers and business leaders, Yatseniuk also praised a new wave of economic sanctions imposed on Russia by the European Union and the United States, and said they posed a major threat to the Russian economy.

"We are still on a stage of war and the key aggressor is the Russian Federation... Putin wants another frozen conflict (in eastern Ukraine)," Yatseniuk said.

"His goal is to take the entire Ukraine... Russia is a threat to the global order and to the security of the entire Europe."
