    The Ukrainian government, sponsored by the EU and the US, is about to collapse. Although the West has invested billions over the last months to help Ukraine overcome the economic crisis, the situation in the country is worse than ever, DWN wrote.

    For the first time in six months the parties of the conflict took a break amid the start of the new school year. The armed clashes stopped, but how long the peace will last is unclear, the newspaper reported.

    For President Petro Poroshenko the ceasefire in Donbass is the only bright moment, as the political situation in Kiev becomes increasingly unstable.

    The US and the EU have to now closely keep an eye on the chaos unfolding in the country they have been financing for the last several months. The bloody violence with gunfire and explosions in the center of Kiev revealed a huge split in Ukrainian political circles and left the country in a state of shock.

    The constitutional reform introduced by Poroshenko provoked resentment and fierce protests among Ukrainian right-wing forces that went out of control months ago.

    Many pro-Western deputies, including former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, do not support the constitutional reform.

    At the same time, despite opposition of the Ukrainian government, the Donbass militias are planning to organize their own elections in October and demonstratively introduce Russian currency in the region.

    Ukraine is becoming engulfed in chaos, and Poroshenko is likely to choose his usual path, blaming Russian President Vladimir Putin and Donbass militias for the failure of a peaceful resolution of the conflict, DWN wrote. However, this time it would be difficult for him to make Vladimir Putin solely responsible for the crisis, as it was primarily due to his own mistakes that led to the collapse of the country.
