Joe Biden stepped on the toes of Russian oligarchs in Ukraine by breaking up their oil monopolies. Is there anybody that can't see that's...?
....why Trump is now attacking him on Moscow's behalf? This is all about Putin's revenge on the DNC like with Hillary and she and Obama placing tough sanctions on Russia for campaign interference and invading Ukraine/Crimea.

It is a relief to find someone who has followed the truth as your timely question does, Future. It was highly intelligent Secretary Hillary Clinton's suggestion, and one that President Obama subsequently followed much to short-man Putin's enragement, to put the tough sanctions on Putin's inner circle (Russian MAFIA oligarchs) as a strategic way to have those powerful insiders pressure Vladimir Putin to behave. President Obama took the added step of convincing European allies to join us in imposing these restrictive sanctions even though Europe was at the time reliant upon Russian oil. Once alternative fuel resources were in place, Europe and the United States joined forces to penalize Russia for criminal behaviors and aggression towards its neighbors, promising to lift the sanctions if positive changes were made. The sanctions began with the Putin-ordered murder of a Russian forensics economist named Sergei Magnitsky in 2012---a young man hired by Hermitage Investment owner and American Bill Browder to track the tax theft (stolen corporate identity) committed by the Russian MAFIA on his corporation. Magnitsky was able to follow the money trail to New York City, to a Russian-owned (Denis Katsyv) PREVEZON HOLDING money-laundering operation with which Donald Trump and Trump's long-time business partner FELIX SATER were intricately involved. Perhaps some of you might remember when the MAGNITSKY ACT passed our Congress with bipartisan support in both House and Senate as a protest to civil rights violations that led to the wrongful arrest, torture, and death of 37-year-old whistleblower Magnitsky. This 2012 imposition of U.S. and European sanctions on banks and powerful crime-boss figures in the Russian government prompted a furious Putin to suspend all adoptions of Russian orphans by American couples in retaliation. Later, when tiny tyrant Putin chose to violate international law to make a land grab by invading Ukraine in 2014---an event that Paul Manafort and partner Rick Gates helped to set up after taking $12 million from Putin to plant a pro-Putin leader in Ukraine---this move came after the democratically elected pro-Western Ukrainian leader announced he would authorize opening up trade [for oil and other commodities or goods] with Europe as a way to build up Ukraine's independence and economic strength while also adhering to the U.S.-imposed Magnitsky Act sanctions and play an independent role in the world instead of being reliant upon Putin's kleptocracy.
This background builds upon the answer by Mr. Smartypants, explaining how, when, and why the Manafort-installed pro-Putin Yanukovich "president" rose to brief power, putting pro-Putin MAFIA figures into power positions within the Ukrainian government, such as the corrupt Ukrainian prosecutor that NATO members and the Obama team wanted removed after Yanukovich turned tail and ran home to Mother Russia. It was Putin who was responsible for shooting down a civilian airline over Ukraine---his no-insignia Russian troops and his weaponry. When President Obama sought to worsen those sanctions, what is it that mobbed up ruthless KGB-trained Vladimir Putin did that same day? He jumped into his plane with Russian press cameras in tow and flew to Cuba to meet with Castro in defiance, publicly forgiving Cuba's debt like a spanked spoiled-brat destructive child rubbing his rear end, a tear in his little-boy eye, saying a defiant "That didn't hurt" (the thought that came to my mind that day). Putin envied and feared the disciplinarian "parental authority figure" Barack Obama, so he did a "Trump" and BLUFFED while issuing a veiled threat---going to our neighbor only 90 miles off our Florida shore, then sitting around with Fidel Castro ON CAMERA to suggest Russia "might reopen the missile base" from Cold War days. How did our erudite diplomatically gifted nation-saving leader President Obama respond? He gave Putin a chance to throw the temper tantrum without responding, like any wise parental authority figure, and then announced a normalizing of U.S.-Cuba relations! Brilliant! Putin's sneak-attack cyber warfare on our nation's elections is all part of these connected events---a cuckolded short aging tyrant furious about being reined in.

Sure that's what's going on. In reality Biden was getting his share of the corruption pie at the expense of the impoverished Ukrainian people.
