Comments on: Ukraine: Don’t repeat past mistakes http://blogs.reuters.com/lawrencesummers/2014/03/10/ukraine-dont-repeat-past-mistakes/ Sat, 21 Jun 2014 15:30:06 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: 2Borknot2B http://blogs.reuters.com/lawrencesummers/2014/03/10/ukraine-dont-repeat-past-mistakes/#comment-1012 Thu, 13 Mar 2014 03:40:11 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/lawrencesummers/?p=463#comment-1012 More of the same ole’ song and dance. If the Ukrainians knows what’s good for them, they will stay away from the IMF or they will end up like Greece or worse. Then they will lose all that fertile soil to the fraking companies (if they haven’t all ready). I hope they are contributors to breaking the G-0 plotters. That is no way to run a planet. BAD IDEA FROM THE INCEPTION.

Italy is on the right track, and can be a good roll model for Russia and Ukraine (and the rest of the world) and they are the first and came in towards the end. I am impressed at how quick they caught on and how fast they have moved. It is a good time to be Italian! L.

However, it should be a reason why IMS and Western donors did not do it earlier in Ukraine and other countries. Particularly, would IMS and EU provide finance to Ukraine in October or November, when Ukrainian government practically begged for the help, there would be no deaths, no revolution, and no conflict with Russia.

Most probably, there are institutional limitations on what can be done and what cannot. Would German taxpayers, who all but rebelled against a help to a close ally Greece and even to a tiny Cyprus, glad to give money to utterly corrupt and constantly disorderly Ukraine?

(ras)Putin is Ukraine’s enemy number ONE, with oligarch mischief a close second.
We help Ukraine or we leave it to (ras)Putin to continue to destroy. Russia has no interest in a strong Ukraine and Ukrainians are just starting to figure that out. The west needs to open markets to Ukraine and guarantee access to those markets because we have a lot more interest in trading with a democratic Ukraine than we do Military Communist China.

Unfortunately, the most pressing issue with Ukraine is that Putin will do everything possible to further destabilize it, so that he can grab its land piece by piece, or just to swallow outright.
