Ukraine To Seek Compensation From Russia For Seized Assets, Introduces Visas For Russians

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Now that the non-fighting and the Crimean annexation is over, all that's left are cheap words and hollow threats.

First, Ukraine has effectively given up on claims to Crimea... 

  • UKRAINE TO REMOVE MILITARY FROM CRIMEA TO MAINLAND: PARUBIY
  • UKRAINE TO SEEK DEMILITARIZED ZONE STATUS FOR CRIMEA: PARUBIY

... but hopes to make Russia's life more difficult:

  • UKRAINE PLANS TO INTRODUCE VISA REGIME WITH RUSSIA: PARUBIY

And just in case Russia decides to steamroll unobstructed into other areas of East Ukraine, Kiev is pretending it is taking measures:

  • UKRAINE TO FORTIFY MILITARY ON EASTERN BORDER: PARUBIY
  • UKRAINE TO STRENGTHEN SECURITY AT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

Finally, Ukraine somehow still thinks it has any leverage:

  • UKRAINE TO SEEK COMPENSATION FOR RUSSIA SEIZING ASSETS

And this stinger for Russia which will surely lose much sleep now:

  • UKRAINE PLANS TO LEAVE CIS, PARUBIY SAYS

As for the US, it is just comical now:

  • RUSSIA CREATING `DANGEROUS SITUATION,' CARNEY SAYS
  • U.S. PREPARED TO IMPOSE FURTHER COSTS ON RUSSIA, CARNEY SAYS

Costs - drink. And speaking of "dangerous situations", perhaps the biggest danger here is that the US still thinks it is the sole superpower in a unipolar world. It clearly no longer is.

It will be the Ukrainians running away from the IMF that is the real reason for the new visa requirements. Can't  have the slaves leaving the Nuland Plantation.....

Russia will ask Ukraine to pay $20 billion debt dating back to the Soviet Union era, if Kiev tries to revise the agreement that regulated the partition of property upon the dissolution of the USSR, Itar-Tass quoted Russia’s Foreign Ministry as saying.

if reports were correct he actually said to actively short Russian equities...which in my view is total b.s. if true.

I does such activity not do anything but further inflame the situation? The goal is to make money off the collapsing Russian economy?

So far "Adult Swim" isn't going to well here.

Good read but I think Orlov has it competely wrong with the parallels between the Soviet Union's collapse and the U.S. in 2014 terms.

First off the U.S.S.R. would never have threatened it's borders, first with Yugoslavia, then Georgia and with Chechnya the way the U.S. has for nearly two decades.  Second and the icing on the cake is going after Russia's most important naval bases and maritime industries.  It would be like Russia in 1990 taking control of Richmond through a coup and attempting the sabotage and takeover of Newport News and Oceana Virginia!

We have much to learn from the ex-Soviet Russian peaceful transition that ensued against all those "obstacles" that could have taken the U.S.'s extreme path but didn't!

I think Putin's speech after the Crimea vote is both his and the Country's finest hour.  The U.S .and NATO motivations were the opposite of it's intentions and it ended up cementing Ukraine and Russia even closer.

Shit will really begin to hit the fan when the Western part of the region of Ukraine asks Russia for inclusion alongside Crimea.   And it will happen.

Then we will see what the U.S. is willing to risk once that takes place!

Western Ukraine will never ask Russia for anything. Western Ukraine is Old Europe, Soviet inclusion

will never happen. Funny how Orlov knows that Ukrainians in Crimea voted to be part of Russia, no

doubt the Tatars voted to be part of russia too. Putins speech was a Schizophrenic man justifying his

actions whilst his audience were wondering why the king had no clothes on, there will be a little boy

shouting soon.

Thus why the which currency is better:  the Euro or the Dollar is ludicrous.  Both governing bodies have used faulty economic priciples for their economic policy.  With China and Russia tallying impressive gold reserves over the last decade - rivaling Europe's and the USA's - we see what the buyers of the debt think.

"...it seems the EU just can't wait to take on the massive debt that the Ukraine represents."

 

Quite so. It becomes clearer when one considers that the "EU project" to create a new empire called the United States of Europe has always taken precedence over all other matters. To the likes of Barroso, economics is something that can wait until the USE is fully up and running and poking its nose into everybody's business. That's why no action has been taken to end the farcical Euro currency, even though it's destroying the economies and societies of member states.

From Encyclopædia Britannica:

This Day in History - March 19

  • On this day in 1982, Argentine forces mobilized after a dispute between Argentine workers and British scientists on British-controlled South Georgia island, leading to Argentina's take over of the Falklands two weeks later.
  • On this day in 2003, U.S. President G. W. Bush ordered air strikes against Baghdad thus launching the Iraq War to oust President Saddam Hussein.

"Ukraine" is Obama's "Wag the Dog" moment.  If the Obamacare website had worked, if the Democrats had won this month's Florida Congressional seat race and if the economy would only listen to Carney pronounce economic stats like they were real...  the Obama/Kerry show would never have been produced.

After all, last Fall, Europe with American blessings, didn't give a damn about all things "Ukraine".

this was a good post from a blogger

Breaking News!!! Violent protests in Mexico. The U.S. friendly government faces imminent overthrow by the Chinese backed violent protesters. The Mexican government is facing accusations of extreme corruption and being in paid service of Washington. China has denied being behind the coup attempt but bugged telephone conversations between Mexico and Beijing reveal China's wishes on whom they'd like see as their preferred leaders. The coup leaders have been promised billions of dollars by China in return for Mexico allowing the establishment of a Chinese naval base and to place missiles on the border with America. China is demanding that the coup violent protesters been seen as legitimate. Meanwhile, Chinese tycoons are busy taking control of Mexico's state assets along with American owned businesses; privatizing them and getting ready to sell them at great profits to themselves.
Ask yourself, if this scenario really played out, what would the U.S. do???
