17.01.16 majalla.com - Russia Will Have to Face in 2017 Russia’s foreign adventures gained a new momentum when President Putin’s government annexed Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula in 2014. Months later a war broke out in Ukraine’s Donbas region. separatists, backed by Russian forces, engaged in an unending war with Ukrainian forces. This conflict remains remains unresolved. Crimea and Donbas turned out to be more expensive for Russia than Mr. Putin may have imagined. international community Russia’s annexation of Crimea. US and EU placed heavy economic sanctions on Russia, which conveniently coupled with plummeting energy prices and drove Russian economy into a recession. price of Russia’s aggression in Ukraine went well beyond just dollars and rubles; it also came in form of Russia’s complete isolation from West. During its summit in summer 2016 NATO declared Russia as a major threat next to ISIS. On December 19, 2016, UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which recognized Russia as an occupying power, and Autonomous Republic of Crimea and city of Sevastopol – as occupied territories. Thus Russia has spent over two years funding Crimea (as its own territory), paying for a war in Donbas, and surviving under Western economic sanctions. Despite Russia’s participation in Minsk I and II ceasefire talks, no actual ceasefire has been achieved in Donbas, and situation in eastern Ukraine remains dire. As Western and international organizations continue to condemn Russia’s actions in Ukraine with no resolution in sight, it seems that while Ukraine is tremendously affected by Russian aggression, Russia, in return, is going to have to continue to pay consequences of its actions there too. Thus for 2017 getting Ukraine-related Western sanctions lifted will be one of top priorities for Mr. Putin’s government.

A little over a year ago, on a pleasant late fall evening, I was sitting on my front porch with a friend best described as a Ukrainian freedom fighter. He was smoking a cigarette while we watched southeast D.C. hipsters bustle by and talked about “the war” — big war, being waged by Russia against all of us, which from this porch felt very far away. I can’t remember what prompted it — some discussion of whether government in Kiev was doing something that would piss off EU — but he took a long drag off his cigarette and said, offhand: “Russia. EU. It’s all just more Molotov-Ribbentrop shit.”

econ.economicshelp.org - Economic Impact of War It is ironic that, from a certain perspective, war can be beneficial for an economy.
War leads to higher government spending, higher employment and can therefore provide a boost to domestic demand, economic growth and help reduce unemployment. However, this boost to domestic demand doesn’t have to come from military spending. But, war is often a very good excuse for government to borrow much more than it could do in peace time. UK national debt is currently 60% and everyone thinks we need to cut spending and reduce level of debt. But, in war time, UK national debt has often risen above 150% of GDP.

Do Kazakhstan and Ukraine have legal right to return nuclear weapon program due to canceling Budapest memorandum assurance?

Explained: Ukraine’s Case Against RF at Hague. Analyzing evidence presented by Ukraine accusing of supporting “terrorism” Ukraine claims that Russia bears responsibility for these acts of “terrorism” in Donbas through its funding, outfitting, and support of separatist forces. Seven civilians died and more than thirty were injured after Russia-backed separatist forces carried out a bombardment of Kramatorsk on February 10, 2015. An investigation from International Partnership for Human Rights (IPHR) found that thirty-two projectiles were fired from four Smerch systems from separatist-controlled territory. Many of other claims made by Russian representatives are absurd when we consider available open source information, especially claim that Russia has not provided weapons or funds to separatist forces.

Настанет год – России черный год – Когда царей корона упадет, Забудет червь к ним прежнюю любовь,
И пища многих будет смерть и кровь; Когда детей, когда невинных жен Низвергнутый не защитит закон;
Когда чума от смрадных, мертвых тел Начнет бродить среди печальных сел, Чтобы платком из хижин вызывать;
И станет глад сей бедный край терзать, И зарево окрасит волны рек – В тот день явится мощный человек,
И ты его узнаешь – и поймешь, Зачем в руке его булатный нож. И горе для тебя! Твой плач, твой стон
Ему тогда покажется смешон; И будет все ужасно, мрачно в нем, Как плащ его с возвышенным челом.

Daniel Hannan MEP: Ukraine. Europe stayed silent. I’ve just come across this poem by Oleksandr Oles, written in 1931 as Ukrainians began to see full horror of collectivisation which led to what we now call Holodomor: Stalin’s man-made famine. It seems apt to our present discontents, no?

When Ukraine fought torturers
Giving life and death for its right to live,
Asking only for compassion,
Europe stayed silent.

When Ukraine lost blood and tears
In an unequal struggle,
Looking friendly assistance,
Europe stayed silent.

When Ukraine, maimed, laboured for master,
Dragging an iron yoke across earth,
When even mute mountains moved,
Europe stayed silent.

When Ukraine was dying,
Having reaped a bloody harvest for torturer,
Too hungry even to speak,
Europe stayed silent.

When Ukraine cursed its life
And become a mass grave,
When devil himself wept,
Europe stayed silent.
