EU prepares to abandon Ukraine

Posted by seumasach on May 25, 2015

“What Ulyukaev is saying is that after wasting eight months rejecting the Russian proposals out of hand, the Europeans have suddenly indicated in the last few weeks that they might be prepared to accept them after all.  

If this is really so, and if what Ulyukaev says is true, then it is the best evidence to date that the Western powers have indeed finally given up on their Ukrainian adventure, and have accepted that the grandiose geopolitical objectives they set themselves when they drafted the Association Agreement and backed the Maidan coup are unachievable, and that the time has now come to draw a line under the whole affair.”

US admits that Kiev fails to honor Minsk accords

Posted by seumasach on May 13, 2015

“I think Kerry’s visit was intended not just to signal a shift in the US stance but, above all, to try to partially restore the dialogue that had been practically severed. Naturally, if the United States wants to resume dialogue, it must take into account Russia’s stand, at least on some issues,” Pushkov said.

Last week two prominent Ukrainian opposition figures were gunned down in broad daylight. They join as many as ten others who have been killed or committed suicide under suspicious circumstances just this year. These individuals have one important thing in common: they were either part of or friendly with the Yanukovych government, which a US-backed coup overthrew last year. They include members of the Ukrainian parliament and former chief editors of major opposition newspapers.

Excellent speech the charismatic Sahra Wagenknecht, the vice president of the German Left party and German MP, gave in the German parliament March 18. Highlights.

“The chief interest of the United States is to prevent coordination between Germany and Russia”

“Resultantly Ukraine has lost the great part of its industry. Today, the country is a bankrupt state, where people go hungry, shiver, and have salaries lower than people have in Ghana.”

“Furthermore, the US and Britain sending military advisors and delivering weapons is not a matter of supporting the peace process, but of torpedoing it. But do you now envision sanctions against the US and Britain?”
