It seems that the Ukrainian authorities have decided on their orientation. Orienting towards the "European" choice, i.e. the signing of an association agreement with the European Union.
"As you know, all this talk about deciding" either there or here "has nothing at all except, say, some wrong ideological prerequisites," said Prime Minister Mykola Azarov.
From the film a "Station for two":
“Did you choose the bridegroom?”
- Oh, I have not decided yet
- How so?
- How how? I have two suitors today, two suitors. Yes, Petka and Mitka ... Imagine Ver, two weddings and both on Thursday!
This luscious multi-vector formula hides poorly the fact that there is no economy in this choice. The economic advantages of Ukraine joining our Customs Union are obvious, indisputable. Including, by the way, and the solution of the Ukrainian Hamlet problem - gas prices.
Association - note that there can be no introduction! - with the European Union - a pass to the hallway - means opening up a market with the extermination of entire branches of Ukrainian industry, as well as a political ultimatum: including a rejection of any form of integration with Russia. This is a simple receipt of the loyalty of the Ukrainian elites to the West, that is, to those who hold their paw on the capital they have stolen. And - everything.
As Sergey Glazyev, an adviser to the president of Russia, noted, “if Ukraine signs an agreement with the EU and the balance of payments worsens as a result, the question arises who will pay for the default of Ukraine, which becomes inevitable”?
“It would be nice if the Prime Minister would say publicly:“ Yes, everything, of course, will collapse, collapse. ”But I can upset these Russian experts a little: nothing will collapse, not collapse,” said Prime Minister Mykola Azarov .
Well, of course! Blessed is he who believes! In fact, the Ukrainian economy has no margin of safety. And Russia warned that it would certainly take protective measures against the inevitable flow of Ukrainian products being forced out of the Ukrainian market. Do you want to go to the Customs Union - that is, you want real customs? And not such as now - make-believe? There will be customs.
Even an easy rehearsal, in August, I recall, produced a shock. You can imagine what the reaction will be to full-fledged protective measures. Therefore, now the Ukrainian authorities are preparing, inflating the real anti-Russian hysteria.
“Unfortunately, there has recently been a dramatic change in the political course of the country. To my great regret, almost the enemy of Ukraine, who is stifling the free will of the Ukrainian people, has begun to be done. Everyone who has remained faithful to his convictions is being tested and they are almost accused of high treason, "said the deputy from Odessa, Igor Markov.
Igor Markov, the majoritarian deputy from Odessa, is only deprived of his mandate, annulling the elections, to which there have been no complaints for two years. The task is to intimidate our own faction of the Regions, who came to power only under the promises of the closest relations with Russia. At the same time, Ukrainian politicians are not to blame for treason. All the same, that accuse a professional in treason.
