Intemperate words from Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland, have been leaked into the public arena. The profanity expressed is of little importance, as is her dismissal of the EU - "F*ck the EU". The significance of this episode is the open admission of US interference in Ukrainian politics, picking and supporting a government in waiting while undermining the legitimate government by inciting/instigating violence and civil unrest. It is the tried and tested method of regime change, eg. Iran (1953), Chile (1973), Libya (2011), Syria (current), Iran (current) and Ukraine (current). It is regime change by the book.
Regime Change in Kiev
This says much about the US and the decline of empire/civilisation. There is a sense in which the US/UK/NATO axis has "bitten off more than it can chew". It is destabilising and intervening militarily in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and within its own "backyard", Latin America, while its own people are suffering a decline in living standards. The Roman Empire declined and fell over centuries. Arguably, western civilisation has been in decline for well over a century.
