1. The west didn't have to put an amy there. They paid for and organised the protests and sanctioned use of weapons to kill police.
    The ONLY reason Russian troops are there is because people WANT THEM to be there. They are not there watching every person who votes to see who they voted for.

  2. Yes there need to be free elections like the referendum in Krimea,where people voted with Russian army presence.
    At least The West didn't put army on the ground like Russia did in Krimea and Donetsk.

  3. Russia is not the enemy of the West and it is dangerous for the West to push this line.
    The West needs to accept its hypocrisy and faults, eg. Kosovo.
    There needs to be free and fair elections in Ukraine without a US - EU takeover and firesale. Enough damage has already been done to that poor country and its gullible folk.

    Russia is not the enemy of the West...

    Ask Poles,Estonians,Lithuenians or hungarians before you give these statements.
    For serbs, Russia is not an enemy,but not all people in the EU are serb.

    As for Kosovo,you better blame your compatriots in 1999 who didnt give the authonomy back to Kosovo,not the West.

  4. @Leonidas,
    I agree with you.US and EU is causing all the troubles in the world.Even when the people's cars dont start,it is US and EU or Japan's fault since they produce the cars.

    You did mentioned the principals of democracy.
    Good!
    So tell you serbian friends why they didn't accept the results of referendum in Bosnia where more that 60% of the population voted to be an independent state,back in 1990s.

    Moreover,the elected leader should listen to the people.70% of ukrainans wanted the EU deal signed but Yukanovich choose Moskow,as we know now he is the Moskow lapdog.He even ask Moskow to enter in Krimea,and gives press confferences in russian language!!!

    Anyway,I wonder if Samaras or whoever greek leader who was elected by people ,decide to abandon Cypro or sign a deal with Turkey.
    I am pretty sure the greek PM will be deposed in one day,even though he was eleced by people.
    Being elected by people doesnt mean to work against the interest of the very people who elected you,specially when the margin of victory is 51-49%.
    Youkanovich played wrong.

  6. To answer the Russian foreign ministry, no these people have no shame. The neocon war criminals who control the US are completely shameless, they have no problem supporting nazis in Ukraine or Croatia, supporting church burning organ trafficking terrorists in Kosovo, supporting jihadist freaks in Syria and Lybia, and will sell their own mothers if they have to. These people are sociopaths, pure evil, war profiteers who make oodles of money off of blood, war, and other people's suffering. What goes around comes around, and karma will bite them in the arse.

    Cheers!!

  7. Russia: EU does Washington's bidding, should be ashamed
    "Are they not ashamed?"
    The leaders and diplomats in Washington and Brussels are not ashamed because they do not know what SHAME is!
    They are experts of propaganda.
    Millions of citizens around the world have more understanding of Russia's situation, in supporting Russian speaking citizens in Ukraine and protecting their human rights, not to mention Russia's right to protect its borders than they have of comprehending what the US and EU -Nato is doing by introducing sanctions and more sanctions on Russia.
    It becomes a tragedy when we in the West no longer trust or respect the hypocrisy and the arrogance coming from our leaders.
    Russia is not the enemy of the West and it is dangerous for the West to push this line.
    The West needs to accept its hypocrisy and faults, eg. Kosovo.

  8. Blame the US neocons and the Brussels mafia for encouraging chaos in Ukraine and the western Ukrainians for not accepting the principle that in a democratic society rulers are elected, reelected or kicked out at general elections. If the EU had kept is nose out of Ukrainian affairs none of this would have happened. It was EU empire building that precipitated this whole crisis and in time we will undoubtedly find evidence that the EU sponsored the pro-EU protesters that deposed the elected president. Now that events have played out their inevitable course the EU has nothing to offer Ukraine but some temporary trade deals worth a fraction of what it had with Russia.The 'Finlandization' of Ukraine, allowing it too be free, modern and able to develop at its own pace while maintaining good relations with both Russia and the EU, would have been the best option for Ukraine.But the Americans in particular have made it clear that they will not stop until Ukraine is wrenched away from all Russian influence, never mind the turmoil this may cause.And of course, the Americans will stir things up but then leave the Germans (and their French sidekicks) to pick up the pieces and foot the bill.No wonder Merkel isn't a happy bunny.

  9. Are you not ashamed, Mr Russian foreign minister, to be so arrogant and still call the violent, armed, masked extremists in eastern Ukraine who set up barricades, capture soldiers, torture and kill other citizens (for example people who support a unified Ukraine) and, on top of all, take international observers as hostages and calling them 'spys' and 'prisoners of war', like this self-proclaimed 'mayor', 'peaceful protesters'?

  10. The language used here, suggests the Russians are upset. To say the EU is doing Washington's bidding is false, the EU has been much more reserved and far less hawkish and measured than the US. If the EU really did what the US would like of them, you'd have seen much sterner sanctions.
