Because he can

At the beginning of last week Secretary Kerry stated that President Obama will shortly make up his mind on whether to deliver defensive aid to the Ukrainians. The clock continues to tick.

He himself was injured, but he does not regret the time and efforts he has devoted to an exceptional experience that changed him a lot as many other Ukrainians.

It is a euphemism that allows ‘leaders’ of Russian terrorist organizations ‘DNR’ and ‘LNR’ to be included in negotiations with Ukraine. ‘DNR’ and ‘LNR’ officially claim responsibility for the war with Ukraine, working as cover for the full scale Russian military invasion. Ukraine officially does not have any top-level contacts with ‘DNR’ and ‘LNR’ and does recognize them as terrorist organizations. Official authorization of ex-president Leonid Kuchma to represent Ukraine in the peace talks has no mention of ‘LNR’ and ‘DNR’, for instance.

Who and why is writing off Ukraine?

I am not military expert and I never pretended to be one. It is however at least short sighted, if not ignorant, to observe war situation only from the military perspective. There are many other important areas, like diplomacy or economy, that can have just as strong impact on the final outcome of the conflict.…
