Greece Begins The Great Pivot Toward Russia | Zero Hedge

Greece Begins The Great Pivot Toward Russia | Zero Hedge | Global politics | Scoop.it
"Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias is due in Brussels on Thursday to discuss possible additional sanctions on Russia over the conflict in Ukraine. Before the cabinet even meets for the first time tomorrow, the Greek government said that it disagreed with an EU statement in which President Donald Tusk raised the prospect of “further restrictive measures” on Russia." The punchline: In recent months, Kotzias wrote on Twitter that sanctions against Russia weren’t in Greece’s interests. He said in a blog that a new foreign policy for Greece should be focused on stopping the ongoing transformation of the EU “into an idiosyncratic empire, under the rule of Germany.” And when it comes to the natural adversary of any German imperial ambitions in recent history, Europe has been able to produce only one answer...
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Most displeased, especially since the liquidation sale of Greece is part of the Greek bailout agreement: an agreement which as the Troika has repeatedly stated, is not up for renegotiation.

The Vineyard of the Saker: Must watch: Ukrainian Deputy: US to stage a civil war in Ukraine! This was 20.11.2013!! BEFORE Maidan | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

On 14 April, Oleg Tsarov was beaten by a mob after an interview in the ICTV building in Kiev. The beating was denied by some, though press agencies published videos of the mob and photos of Oleg Tsaryov half-naked with bruises.After this beating he stated "I am against a third party interfering in the affairs of Ukraine. Until we learn to listen to each other, Ukraine will stand no chance”.

In May 2014, a recording of a death threat phone call allegedly made to Tsarov by the governor of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast and owner of PrivatBank, Ihor Kolomoisky, began circulating in social media. In the call Kolomoisky tells Tsaryov that there is a bounty of $1 million on his head, and to stay inMoscow if he doesn't want to be killed. Tsarov claimed the call was authentic.
