This is joke. Cities with over 1 million people and only 1,000 demonstrate. . Enough of this killing! Innocent people in Eastern Ukraine suffer and die while politicians and military men feed their egos with blood of good people who only want peace. No more covert wars for Russia or West. Go home and leave these people alone. Chocolate President says they can keep their lanuage and probably allow statehood with own governor. What do you killers want? More dead and maimed children, old women and men? This make you feel like a man? Now, we have sanctions ruining Russian economy, for what?

Mr Turchinov, the people of Ukraine are with you. Do what you have to do to make a peace in east of Ukraine. The terrorists should be isolated in prison and investigated their connections with Moscow.

You are saying fantastic. Where did you see discrimination of russian language in Ukraine??? In western Ukrain, which you call nazis, you can freely speak any language including russian. In opposit in the Eastern Ukraine and Crimea it's dangarous. I saw how people in Donetsk, which is pro-russian were harassin black man

Mr Turchinov, the people of Eastern Ukraine are Russian speakers. They are not with you. They are asking for their just language rights and the right of self-determination. They want a just union with Ukraine. Mr. Putin, please, defend the rights of the Russian people. Call NATO's bluff before they set up a pro NAZI puppet state right at Russia's borders. NATO is not a defense force. It is a tool of the US far-right controlled aggressor state.

Obumma and his terrorist regime in the White House and Congress must beware. You are going to miscalculate when President Putin calls your bluff. You are not going to win. He is too smart for you. If you miscalculate further and go to war, Wall Street will crash and all the stocks, bonds, derivatives,etc, markets will collapse in seconds, wiping off billions if not trillions from the value of these paper wealth overnight. See the hundreds of billions in portfolios held by the Rockefellers, Rothchilds, Soros, Congressmen, Senators, etc... disappear. And the US dollar valueless. The US Empire - a House of cards.

"Ukraine" is NOT just a regional issue between Ukraine and Russia. It is a proxy WAR between the US and Russia with the US being the hostile nation. That makes the issue an international one. If there is a time to be counted, all countries must NOW make a stand. If they do NOT wish a world dominated by the US, they MUST ally togethe NOW with Russia. There is no fence sitting. Make your stand clear Mr Xi and Presidents of the rest of the world bullied and victimised by the USG. Warn Obumma - "If Russia is attacked, China and Iran and North Korea and other allies will attack the US without hesitation."

This will not end well with the kind of terrorist regime in the US White House and Congress. They are unreasonable and unable to accept defeat anytime, anywhere. Their ego is too huge. They will initiate and then they will go ALL the way to the brink when others respond successfully. There is no choice. Russia, Moscow and President Putin must take all to the brink with them. If it's world war 3 with nukes, China, India, Brazil, Latin America, Iran, N Korea, MUST stand with Russia. Forget about the UN .. unless the rest of the world stands up to be counted and condemn the USG and Oumma and his goons.

If there are people in the Ukraine so pro Russian, why dont they move there? No, so full of themselves, they have ruin the sovereign country they currently live in.

  

Why should they move to Russia? they live on their land. These territories were separated from Russia by Lenin after the revolution 1917. Following your logics Ukranians are occupants and should move. Moreover, Russians and Ukranians come from the same state, Kievskaya Rus. Kiev is a motherland to both Russians and Ukraninans. it means nothing to you but it means a lot to us.

USA are abusers of human rights by backing this evil fascist regime in Kiev. Was the war against Hitler totally in vain? Russia lost 20 million of its people fighting Hitler and helped to bring the war to a swift conclusion. Russia are EUs friend and Neighbour and deserves more respect and better treatment by EU and USA. I wouldn't blame Mr Putin if he chose to turn off the gas to EU who are in cahoots with the skulduggery of the USA government and its crazy promotion of NATO which is no longer fit for purpose except for USA warmongers. Nigel Farage is right and the sooner the UK get out of EU the better for us.

"Wannabe president by coup" in Kiev seems losing patient and trap by rage after unable prove something to his West master about unrest in Eastern Ukraine. His must play good to people of East Ukraine and Russian at sometime. Eastern Ukraine was Ukrainian industrial and mining heartland it means Ukrainian economic and field of job for Ukrainian and he own debt to Russia, if he and his West allies play hard ball to East Ukraine and not negotiate, Russia will lose patient and cut her gas supply and say: "sorry our western partner and bye" it will complex!

[quote name='Stephen Obermaier' time='14.04.2014 07:52']Putin is telling the Ukraine to pay its gas bill. Pity the bill was never paid by the former pro Russian government in the first place...REMEMBER![/q uote]

1) What does US with non payers ???
2) Ukraine had the cheapest gas in the world 50$, but they (not Russia) they initiated a new contract in 2004 and after in 2009. (Clan wars for the energy controls)
3) It is very funny, Russia always helped Ukraine and Russia is guilty as always.

  


Help with strings attached more like. Dogs on a leash eh!

The Falkland Islands were there with English speakers living there, way before Argentina existed.
Try using a valid comparison.
