Supporters in America and the EU funding this proxy conflict against Russia should not be blinded to the very serious democratic deficits in Ukraine

Clearly, Middle Eastern states realize that by choosing sides would not only put their evolving bilateral relations with Russia at risk but also rule out the possibility to act as an intermediary in the negotiations, thereby contributing to resolving the Ukrainian crisis.
