Medvedev pledges further support to Ukraine once authorities prove their legitimacy

20.02.2014 10:46

The Russian PM has said cooperation with Ukraine would continue along agreed lines, but added that Ukrainian officials need to stay legitimate and effective, rather than “a doormat for everyone to clean their feet.”

The question is not support. It is the "legitimacy&quo t; of the slef-proclaimed "National Socialists" in West Ukraine.

That pipe FRED>UK contributes around 5-8 % of the energy Germany needs. I would say that is a manageable loss of energy.

The profit loss for Russia is probably more of a problem than the lack of this gas flow.

@ Alex
Another point. Don't forget that a gas pipeline goes from Russia to Germany, the richest industrial member of the EU. If the gas stops flowing it would cause huge problems for Germany as they have given up on nuclear energy. If Germany weakens, the whole of the EU would be threatened with collapse. Can you imagine what would happen in all the european cities if 500m people found their currency becoming worthless? What happened in Kiev would look like a family picnic, by comparison. So Putin has many options on the table, apart from military ones. I think the EU needs to tread very carefully in Ukraine.

I'm

If our government sits by and watches how the Nazis over-run the Russian side of Ukraine, and does nothing...that will be the greatest betrayal of the Russian people since the fall of the Soviet Union.

  


I don't think for one minute Russia will allow that to happen. Already, the govenors of the South and Eastern regions have refused to abide by rules coming from Kiev. The area will probobly secede and then sign a 'defence pact' with Russia and invite the Russian military in, to 'assist' in squashing any problems.

Leave alone the western savage to be EU burden. They fought in the parliament and street like crazy. Invaded president residence. Never value any institution and democracy.

Let the civilized eastern and southern Ukrainian with the good neighbor Russia. They don't have to be a part of Russia, just be the "Ukraine" with pride.

Then, the $ 15 bn. loan from the Russian Federation will be invested in the two new federal subjects (Ukrainian Krai and Crimean Republic) so they can close the income gap with Krasnodar Krai.

Sevas topol will increase its coordination with Novorossyisk.

The ruble will be the comon currency.

If the Secession becomes inevitable, Western Ukraine will sing an association with the EU, while the Southeast will join the Russian Federation as two federal subjects (Ukrainian Krai and Crimean Republic), with a combined population of 15 million people. So, the Russian Federation will reach a population of 160 million people, and will increase its GDP by almost 10%.

The Ukrainian Krai will be the most populated among the federal subjects, with an strong representation in the Duma.

The part of the Ukrinian Army which decides to support the Southeast will join the Federal Forces of Russia with the same salaries.

The West's (US/EU) only interests in Ukraine are in its natural resources and, more importantly, as a military threat to Russia via NATO. America is not the home of the free and land of brave..America is the home of the ignorant and dumbed down, lazy, fat sheeple and the most hypocritical nation (along with Israel) on the planet

  


Sounds like you're an unemployed peasant. Well I do feel sorry for you. But you shouldn't be jealous of others because they have what you have not. Allah will make it right for you. I wish you well on your quick journey to meet him.

Th ank you for your input that really shed the light on everything. Chris Mathews (MSNBC) read your post and got a tingle down his leg. Maybe your post will boost their fail ratings.

  

I also thank you for your input Wad Crum. You make more sense when your posts to this board were of how much your husbands step son could make a fortune on the internet.

The West's (US/EU) only interests in Ukraine are in its natural resources and, more importantly, as a military threat to Russia via NATO. My heart and best wishes are with all Ukrainians and I hope they consider the options very carefully and not to succumb to the false beliefs that the EU/US will bring economic prosperity or liberty. America is not the home of the free and land of brave...America is the home of the ignorant and dumbed down, lazy, fat sheeple and the most hypocritical nation (along with Israel) on the planet!

"Freaky& quot; Fox news is garbage, but they always put a pretty lady on the screen to help with brain washing.

Bah. To help Ukraine, become a free society would undermine and destabilize Russia's communist foothold. I suppose what he means is if Ukraine chooses a to submit to slavery then he would support that.
