Lucian Kim, on what grounds do you make assumptions on European intentions?

By: Loveoneanoter Wed, 20 May 2015 03:34:20 +0000 Guys, there are a lot of lies published these days on the internet.

Sadly most of the lies are fabricated in the west, and published with dubious goals to help promote the interests of some selfish groups of influential people.

The main reason is that anyone in Russia with intelligence or ambition left long ago. Think of the smart Russians you know. They don’t live in Russia.

By: Moties001 Tue, 19 May 2015 08:33:46 +0000 Meanwhile in the real world the US and EU in no way contributed to the fiasco that is now Ukraine. The US never interfered at the meeting in Yalta in 2013 and stopped the EU Russia and Ukraine arriving at a trade deal. The US controlled NATO has not been encircling Russia for years, the US do not have the son of an American politician on the board of a major Ukraine gas company (since the conflict started) And Nuland never said the F___ EU will do what its told. Also the US arms companies will not in any way make a profit out of the increased arms require by eastern European countries to counter the threat from an aggressive Russia that is dominating the world both militarily and financially

This demonstrates that either the author knows nothing about those supporting – and inside – the Ukraine government, or that this merely demonstrates that Reuters, like virtually all mainstream media in the West, is now nothing more than propaganda channels for the US neocons.

To write an article about the history of this Ukrainian ‘revolution’, and to refer to Russia’s supposed annexing of Crimea, while completely ignoring, and saying nothing about, the fact that this so-called revolution was backed and financed by the US neocons (by their own admission), and assisted by their side-kicks in the EU, again merely demonstrates to any reasonably objective readers that this is just another propaganda piece for the US neocon war mongers.

By: merton45 Mon, 18 May 2015 23:13:24 +0000 “The threat of fascism was always a hobgoblin created by Kremlin propagandists.” Oh, really? Methinks our esteemed correspondent has either not done his homework or perhaps is trying to mislead his readers. The neonazi Right Sector was instrumental in the overthrow of the Yankuovych government and continues to play a role in keeping the citizens of Ukraine in line as the west prepares to apply shock therapy to the economy.

Military aggression in the east, subversion, terrorism, economic blackmail, malicious propaganda and other underhand tactics. Ukrainian authorities report that almost all Ukrainian government, administration and security organs have been hacked by Russian agents.

Russia’s naked aggression against Ukraine has been met with only weak and hesitant responses by Europe and the U.S. One gets the feeling that in particular Germany and France are just dying to get back to business as usual with Russia. Putin is laughing off the pitifully weak sanctions.

Ukraine is committed to reform and building a law based society. It faces great hurdles. But there is no alternative. Ukraine has dumped Russian-style autocracy forever. It could do with much more moral and material help from the West.
