The Ukrainian government announced on Monday that it was taking over ownership of the country's largest lender, the now ironically named Privatbank, at the request of the bank's board after they announced they could not meet their obligations to depositors.

As it turns out, the bank's largest shareholders made a collective decision to systematically loot the bank. They established shell companies overseas and in various places in Ukraine -- many were registered in residential apartments in the city of Kharkov - companies they controlled. They then issued massive loans to themselves and essentially, pocketed the cash.

Not being clever. I think if we're going to get involved we should make things better or just stay out of the way and let them do as they will. When we get involved we share in the reputation of those we help to become leaders.

Your premise is flawed.

The US hasn't done much of anything for the Ukraine. The corruption in so engrained in society there. Russia main export to the UA? Death, despair, corruption and suffering.
Crimea is gone. UA is never getting it back. Unless Russia collapses again like the Soviet Union.
