Back to Appeasement

Apr 18th, 2016 | By

Appeasement of Russia is a remnant of old thinking. It was a dismal failure in the past because it absorbed energies, lives and economics for a half century. Vladimir Putin and bellicose Russia cannot be appeased. Concessions will simply whet their appetite. A weakened Russia, however, can be affected. Russia has to be confronted, neutralized and ultimately dragged or welcomed into the civilized world.

On the eve of the Dutch national referendum on the EU-Ukraine Association and Free Trade Agreement, we kindly ask you to use all your moral authority and institutional weight to support a YES vote.

Those people will be able to negotiate peace with neighbours. In occupied territories, in Russia. Using the values and interests, not the conflicts and differences, as negotiation starting points.

Meanwhile the Polish market is being slowly captured by Gasprom subsidiaries, especially by the same Gasprom Germany which owns also 50% of Wingas — by concluding numerous long-term contracts with municipalities of cities providing for supply of liquefied gas for the needs of city transport and municipal economies. Among such cities are Warsaw, Srem and Olshtyn. Probably there are more of those as contracts may be concluded through numerous Cyprus and German enterprises like Cryogas M&T Poland that are related to Gasprom.


Russia’s aggression against Ukrainians

Nov 1st, 2015 | By

This was not the first time over the last few years that the subject library had been assailed by the Russian authorities. In fact over the last decade Russia under then Prime Minister and now President Vladimir Putin has not only attacked the territory of its neighbor Ukraine but has persecuted its own citizens of Ukrainian ethnicity.

We will sanitize the media and diminish the level of fear and panic. I think it is very important.

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. President Obama continues to make up his mind. Why does Putin continue his criminal activity and then fabricate propaganda which is nothing more than a transparent cover up. Because he can!
