"I'm not saying that the West is directly responsible for Putin's invasion."

I'm not sure how else we're expected to read the following:

"Is it possible that it wasn’t just the spread of liberal democracies that was the plan for Eastern Europe but, more importantly, laying a bear trap for Russia? Is there a chance that the US wasn’t entirely happy with its financial advance in the country which opened its gates to consumerism after decades of communist austerity and wanted even a larger piece of the pie which went to the oligarchs under Yeltsin and then Putin? Or was it a way to ensure that the bear was chained and subdued for good?

Is there a chance that Ukraine is being used as bait for that trap?"
