  •  Behind the scenes. . . . (0+ / 0-)

    We have no way of knowing what is going on behind the scenes in terms  of diplomacy.

    Issues I'd like to hear more about =

    Ukraine move to outlaw use of Russian language in official proceedings in Crimea.

    Effect of Western influence on business in Ukraine (one factory I know of which ran beautifully under Communism was bought by Westerners who took it to pieces, ran it into the  ground).

    Effect of Western military influence in Ukraine on Russia's feeling of vulnerability, loss of buffer zone.

    Effect of Russian monopoly on energy sources going to Europe. Years ago I remember seeing a cartoon of the classic Russian Bear holding the pipeline to Western Europe.

    Where are the Communists nowadays?
