The Real News has been having embedding disabled on its YouTube site lately. But this one has embedding available as of this writing. It's a useful discussion of the Herbert Hoover austerity policies being imposed on Ukraine by the West via the IMF, Has the IMF Annexed Ukraine? 02/13/2015 (also at the main Real News website):

The Real News has been carrying a number of reports on Ukraine, including Why are the U.S. and EU Split on Providing Lethal Aid to Ukraine? 02/11/2015.

The US and Europe do have diverging interests in Ukraine policy. But that doesn't exclude the possibility of coordinated diplomatic kabuki in the public positions.
