Cheney seeks to bolster Ukraine
USA is still meddling and still blaming Russia for the war Georgia started truthfully it buggers belief. This is obvously going down the wrong path.
US Vice-President Dick Cheney is in Ukraine on the last stop on his tour of the region aimed at showing support for US allies in the former Soviet Union.
He flew to Kiev from Georgia, where he condemned Russia's "illegitimate" attempt to change Georgia's borders.
Mr Cheney said that Russia's actions during the recent conflict with Georgia had cast doubt on its reliability as an international partner.
Before Georgia, Mr Cheney also stopped in oil-rich Azerbaijan.
In Kiev, the vice-president is expected to hold talks with President Viktor Yushchenko and Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko on Nato, energy pipelines and support for Georgia.
The Ukraine president has warned that his country is a hostage in a war waged by Russia against countries in the old Soviet bloc.
