  • #kiev closest advisors of Putin in this crisis have already sold all their western assets

    But Mr. Putin, whose return to the presidency was opposed by many urban liberals, now makes his most important decisions in an inner circle of men who emerged from Soviet security services. Among the first new projects in his new presidency was a push to “nationalize the elite,” requiring officials to sell off investments and properties outside Russia that could, in his view, undermine their loyalty in the event of a confrontation with the West.

    Indeed, among the small group of people present when Mr. Putin made the final decision on Crimea, according to officials and analysts, were five or six former K.G.B. colleagues believed to have minimal assets outside Russia, and therefore not vulnerable to sanctions. Some of those now closest to Mr. Putin, like the head of the Russian Railway, Vladimir Yakunin, have long argued for Russia to turn away from Western economic models and toward Chinese-style state capitalism.
    another reason to think this was already long in the making in Ukraine or elsewhere but creating a huge conflict with the west was from the beginning of his new Presidency the intention or the plan
    Ukraine or the Crimea just seems to be the first good opportunity to test and try this new strategy
  • #kiev Russian military increasing the costs of their invasions every day

    you look at this and you think that this is not free

    all these people will have to eat, drink and be paid

    so the total costs are just increasing and there is no end in sight

    and the real unrest against the invasion and occupation hasn't even begun

  • #kiev imagine that European countries used the same arguments as Putin to invade their neighbors

    * Gibraltar was occupied by the Spanish army yesterday who has conquered the few British police stations after some short battles. Nobody died but a few police officers were injured. The Spanish flag now is flowing over Gibraltar. The Spanish say that the have taken that action because Gibraltar has always been Spanish and that the Spanish people living there asked for their protection

    * Germany has invaded the German speaking region in Belgium because they said it was always German and it should be re-united with Germany and it wanted to protect the rights of the German speaking people there who will never have as a region the same rights as the other regions in Belgium and although they aren't maltreated they should be united with their German speaking motherland. Some five thousand German military are manning new border posts at the region.

    * Italy has invaded with a few thousand military Vatican City because according to them it is time to unite it with Italy and so make it clear that all the Italians are united in one state.

    should be say more

    there are a hundreds other examples and only in Europe alone where if we should use the same arguments as Putin does now (and ultranationalists from Hungry in Roumenia for example) and Hitler before we would have to face very difficult situations that would make anything like the European Union impossible
