16 de março é o dia C. O Parlamento da Crimeia – por 78 votos e com oito abstenções – decidiu que naquele dia os eleitores crimeanos escolheram entre integrar-se à Federação Russa ou permanecer parte da Ucrânia, como região autônoma, com poderes muito efetivos, nos termos da Constituição de 1992. Seja qual for o terremoto “diplomático” que Washington e Bruxelas continuem a estimular, e será incendiário, incandescente, os fatos em solo falam por eles mesmos. A conselho da cidade de Sevastopol – quartel-general da Frota Russa no Mar Negro – já votou pela integração à Rússia. E semana que vem, em Moscou, a Duma [Parlamento] estudará uma resolução para simplificar os procedimentos e mecanismos da adesão. Recapitulando rapidamente: aí está o resultado direto do gasto de $5 bilhões de Washington – número oficial, fornecido por Victoria “Foda-se a União Europeia” Nuland – para promover a “mudança de regime” na Ucrânia. O que se vê é que a Crimeia pode ser incorporada gratuitamente à Rússia, enquanto o “Ocidente” ficará com o atraso e a bancarrota (Oeste da Ucrânia), do que um leitor de Asia Times Online descreveu, descrição indelével, como o “Khaganato dos Nulands” (reino de Gengis, por exemplo, dentre outros khans), misturado com terra de ninguém, onde reina o marido de Victoria (“Foda-se” etc.) Nuland Kagan.

Julie Borowski: Some people have asked for my opinion on the situation in Ukraine. I'm not going to pretend like I'm a sudden expert on the conflict. I certainly don't think the U.S. government should intervene though. I honestly don't know enough about Crimea. However, I do know a little about Transcarpathia in western Ukraine. These people have been fighting for autonomy for a while. Many of these people are Rusyns--a Slavic ethnic minority. As a people without a country, they have been mistreated by many governments and the Ukrainian government refuses to give them independence or even recognize their existence.
My family is Rusyn. I support autonomy for the Rusyn people.

The Economist is the high priest of Anglo-Saxon hypocrisy – it preaches afree market for all, but backed “socialism for the banks” when the City needed a bailout. It is no more consistent on world politics – international law for all, except for Britain and the USA. In response to the recent article written by Stop the War Convenor Lindsey German (10 things to remember about the crisis in Ukraine and Crimea), an Economist blogger identified only as “JC”, decided to “Fisk” Stop the War (Britain and Ukraine: Fisking Stop the War). It was quite revealing. Here are ten things JC got wrong:
“Neither Mr Cameron nor Mr Kerry ‘invaded’ Afghanistan or Iraq,” JC begins. No, but Britain and the USA did – and it was an invasion, noquotation marks are necessary. The Iraq war, like the Yugoslav one in 1999, was undertaken clearly in violation of international law, against countries making no threats to the USA or Britain, and without any UN sanction. The Economist may take a view that these bloody violations of international law are acceptable, while Putin’s so-far bloodless occupation of the Crimea is an outrage, but not many outside the snug circles of the Anglosphere elite will be found to agree. If the magazine genuinely wants a law-based world with all disputes resolved through negotiation and the United Nations, then it cannot continue to make exceptions for the likes ofBush and Blair – at least not if it wants to be taken seriously.
JC’s description of Yeltsin as a “modernising” premier (he was in fact President not premier) is perhaps the most absurd contention. Under the stewardship of the inebriated Yeltsin, Russia’s economy shrank by half, its state assets were handed over to the emerging oligarchy in a corrupt privatisation process, no functioning party-political system was created and in the end Yeltsin could only be persuaded to leave office under cover of an amnesty for himself and his family for his venal crimes. His foreign policy choices also stored up immense trouble for his successors, as is being seen today. If this is modernisation, it sure makes the case for tradition.
The Sugar coated story that the U.S. media has been feeding the public is completely out of sync with the events unfolding on the ground in Ukraine. Here are six videos that you'll never see aired on the mainstream news.
