British columnist: the West is to blame for the Ukrainian crisis, not Putin

48
In recent years, Vladimir Putin "can bring a long list of accusations": from his policy of suppressing dissent to his assistance to the "Assad regime", but one crisis — the Ukrainian one — was initiated by the West itself, Christopher Booker, British Daily Telegraph columnist.




According to the observer, the only one who "correctly read the events in Ukraine in 2014" was the former British ambassador to the Russian Federation, Tony Brenton. He rightly noted that the cause of the "mess" in Ukraine was the "arrogant desire" of the West to see Ukraine - "historical the cradle of Russian national identity ”- in the European Union and NATO.

“The crisis happened after the coup, during which another leader, wishing to sign an agreement on Ukraine’s accession to the European Union, replaced the corrupt and pro-Russian president of Ukraine,” the article cites. InoTV.

The answer of the Russian-speaking residents of the east of Ukraine, including the Crimea, was “completely predictable: they were ready to vote and fight for them to be ruled by Moscow, and not by Brussels,” writes Booker.

And so far, the West is “powerless to do something” and “can only make outraged protest shouts” against the inevitable consequences of their own actions, he concludes.

    One clever idea, and then only partially. "In recent years," a long list of charges can be brought against Vladimir Putin ": from his policy to suppress dissent to his assistance to the Assad regime." Without the fact that GDP is a tyrant, not a single statement in the West can do it. What kind of Russians have chosen the "dictator" again. And not liberal Ksyusha.

        Interesting things! In the West, there is some kind of selection in the field of politics! repeat

        It is even noteworthy that those politicians in the West who have said something adequately truthful about Russia and its politics are necessarily one way or another exactly "EXCEPT"! sad
        And "Good Old England" No. that is no exception!

          "Politician" wants to give out wishful thinking. distorts the facts, from beginning to end. No one ever wanted to see any Ukraine in any European Union, all these maidans and wars were started with one single purpose, to spoil Russia. That's the whole "logic" of the British "expert", as always everything is upside down. So there’s nothing new, the West, in its usual repertoire, seems to have blurted out something in the case, but an absolute lie (to put it mildly).

            Many who survived the collapse of the Union, then wiser. But all the same, and now there are enough "thinkers" who are not quite in order with their heads. Judging by the election results in Russia, there are almost a quarter of the population.

      hi
      The history of Svidomo discoveries, feats, heroes has gone into the ancient past, legends and textbooks, but the present present is striking in its grandeur of plans, accomplishments and "Wishlist". Today, Ruins plans include a desire to lead the 29th EU states and dictate their own rules and procedures. This was unequivocally stated by the greatest mind of the independent P. Klimkin,

      who in his desires surpassed even his boss - the hetman P. Valtsman.

      Well, this fruit in our registries has long been listed in the chronically sick at the top of the head.

    And so far, the West is “powerless to do anything” and “can only issue indignant exclamations of protest”
    Then he correctly noticed. And no matter how much the West makes "indignant exclamations," it will not be able to change anything. They wanted to rush, but they got chaos in Ukraine and problems with it in Europe, which will only grow.

    Over the past years, “a long list of charges” can be brought against Vladimir Putin: from his policy to suppress dissent

    And where did this “sage” see the suppression of dissent? This west of Russia prohibits any opinion other than "Western", the media are prohibited from a different point of view. In Russia, the situation is completely different. Only extremist and terrorist appeals and the media are forbidden, all the rest are quietly working and scolding both Russia and the leadership and just the Russians. Nobody infringes on the rights of television channels, journalists, even if their opinion is fundamentally different from the generally accepted one (well, they’ll give someone a little turnip so that they don’t get greyhounds at all laughing ) A completely different situation in Western countries. There it is already considered the rule of "good manners" to defame Russian journalists, call for bans on Russian television channels and other media. Even their own journalists, who have a different opinion from the mainstream, even begin to oppress.
    So where is the fight against dissent? fool
