Ukrainian leadership is a party of war, and it will continue as long as they’re in power – Putin

Via RT…


Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has branded the Ukrainian leadership a “party of war” which would continue fueling conflicts while they stay in power, giving the recent Kerch Strait incident as an example.

“When I look at this latest incident in the Black Sea, all what’s happening in Donbass – everything indicates that the current Ukrainian leadership is not interested in resolving this situation at all, especially in a peaceful way,” Putin told reporters during a media conference in the aftermath of the G20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

This is a party of war and as long as they stay in power, all such tragedies, all this war will go on.

The Kiev authorities are craving war primarily for two reasons – to rip profits from it, and to blame all their own domestic failures on it and actions of some sort of “aggressors.”

“As they say, for one it’s war, for other – it’s mother. That’s reason number one why the Ukrainian government is not interested in a peaceful resolution of the conflict,” Putin stated.

Second, you can always use war to justify your failures in economy, social policy. You can always blame things on an aggressor.

This approach to statecraft by the Ukrainian authorities deeply concerns Russia’s President. “We care about Ukraine because Ukraine is our neighbor,” Putin said.

Tensions between Russia and Ukraine have been soaring after the incident in the Kerch Strait. Last weekend three Ukrainian Navy ships tried to break through the strait without seeking the proper permission from Russia. Following a tense stand-off and altercation with Russia’s border guard, the vessels were seized and their crews detained over their violation of the country’s border.

While Kiev branded the incident an act of “aggression” on Moscow’s part, Russia believes the whole Kerch affair to be a deliberate “provocation” which allowed Kiev to declare a so-called “partial” martial law ahead of Ukraine’s presidential election.

It appears President Putin has the measure of the Ukrainian Government and what they’re up to. Thankfully Putin is a very level headed individual and several steps ahead of Poroshenko!.

Mrs. or Mr. Veth, Russia never declared war on Ukraine. Ukraine is Russian territory, it has been Russian territory since the times of the tsars. Russia will never declare war on its own. That is absolute nonsense. In 2014, the poor Crimeans finally managed to join the Russian motherland via a referendum. Since then, Crimea’s economy has been getting better and better, while the poor Ukrainians are still starving under the US-Poroshenko regime. Mrs. or Mr. Veth, whoever you are, do not write nonsense on the site of the Duran. It is one of the few good English-language news sites… Read more »

It’s difficult to know what Putin should do. If – as seems likely – he’s faced with Timoshenko after the elections next year, things are unlikely to change unless there is a big upheaval in European politics. I imagine Putin has given up on the US (he certainly should have) where Trump has proved to as weak as Obama – both probably started out with good intentions. There’s a good article by James Jatras detailing all the levers Trump has failed to use against his tormentors – http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/featured-articles/2018/december/01/sayonara-america-first-we-hardly-knew-ye/.

A bit harsh on the wretched Ukrainians, who are no more stupid I fear than the inhabitants of most western “democracies”, who continue to vote in governments that make them pay for perpetual war, ris Armageddon and steadily replace the native population with those from Arica and Asia. Alas most people are easily gulled when they are let down by a corrupt and degenerate elite and given no real choice. Even when they do vote for ‘change’ – as with Brexit and Trump – they are baulked. The struggle will never end.

I do not believe that President Putin has given up on President Trump. Their body language tells me that they are trying to find common ground as much as they can, under the difficult prevailing circumstances. I further believe that Trump is a much stronger personality than Obama. Obama was or is a CIA asset, just like Hillary Clinton. Trump is certainly not working for the CIA; he used to be an independent and successful businessman, before he was elected President of the USA. Now he is learning that you cannot escape the fangs of the CIA, no matter who… Read more »

You’re probably right on Putin not giving up on Trump as he’s an eternal optimist, but I think he’ll be disappaointed. Trump did not make his money without kowtowing to the worst elements of the New York property magnates (including the family of his son in law). There are certainly links to unsavoury Russian-Israeli oligarchs. Trump’s instincts may be right as regards Amercan interests, but he’s not independent by any stretch. If he was strong he wouldn’t constantly back track on improving relations with Russia over every staged incident. My guess is that it’s his association with Geoffrey Epstein that… Read more »

If the US didn’t start the regime change in Iraq, Libya and Syria, there would not be so many Refugees seeking safety in Europe.

All the evidence shows US MEDDLING/regime change in other Nation’s affairs, leaves only failed terrorist States in their place, and still doubles down on failed policies.

Iran is the last target for US regime change, following the 2001 US WAR PLANS brought out within weeks of 9/11, to change the regimes of Iraq, Libya, Syria, and at THE END, Iran.

Later in the afternoon, a US Navy P-8A Poseidon patrol plane joined it. Both aircraft took off from Sigonella Naval Air Station in Sicily, Italy. Both aircraft which can conduct electronic intelligence operations hundreds of kilometers inside the enemy’s territory carried out flights at 35 to 45 km from Russian… Read more »

Sorry to say but President Petro Poroshenko thinks he is the reincarnation of Germany’s Adolf Hitler during the 1930’s and his rise to power. He is doing the same thing Hitler did when he invaded other countries at first. President Petro Poroshenko wants Donbas first then it will be Crimea next, then who will be next after that?
