Ukraine: EU Strategic Blindness (Yenicag, Turkey)

47
Ukraine: EU Strategic Blindness (Yenicag, Turkey)Moscow did not have such a plan as the provision of military pressure on Ukraine and the annexation of the Crimea. Although Ukraine is extremely important for Russia, both militarily, politically, economically and strategically, as well as historically, Moscow accepted the independence of Ukraine, as well as the fact that the Crimea is not very pleasant for Russia, that Crimea is part of Ukraine. The ideal solution for Moscow was to maintain a favorable relationship with Kiev. The prerequisite of such relations is the non-entry of Ukraine into any institutional union with the West and its non-alignment with NATO or the EU.


The transformation of unitary Ukraine into a federal state has always been a project that Russia may have wanted, but did not represent as a condition for the successful development of relations with this state.

But the European Union did not appreciate what Ukraine means for Russia, and the authorities that emerged after the popular unrest in Kiev, having chosen the way of cooperation with the Ukrainian fascists, who carry the meaning of political suicide for Ukraine, did not intend to reckon with Russia. Whereas the fact that the negotiations between Ukraine and the EU revealed, as well as the negotiations between Ukraine and Russia before the start of the popular demonstrations in Kiev, was that Russia was ready to pay a higher price than the EU. The failure to comply with the terms of the agreement concluded in order to put an end to the protests in Ukraine, the overthrow of the incumbent President Viktor Yanukovych with the support of France and Poland, and the new government hostile to not only Russia but also Russians, caused the break in ties with Moscow. These events are the result of EU strategic short-sightedness. To provoke Russia, without having counted the reciprocal step that Moscow can do, and without having the power to prevent it, is in no way a rational decision.

The EU is trying to get out of the economic crisis. At the same time, Scotland and Catalonia are on the threshold of a division, and this situation creates pressure on the EU from the point of view of the future of this union. At the same time, many EU countries, primarily Germany, depend on Russian energy resources. Taking this into account, Moscow made a very convenient move and annexed Crimea in the spirit of the politics of the past centuries. The process that ended today with the annexation of the Crimea, beginning with the onset of the crisis in Ukraine and the coming to power of the forces with which the EU entered into an alliance, took place in the context of the EU’s strategic blindness and US strategic limp, trying to clear the tactical disaster provoked by the EU. Being in the process of retreat with the realization that the unipolar world order came to an end and searching for a new place in the world with the Asia-Pacific Center, Washington made it clear that in the atmosphere, when in response to this step of Russia, the EU member states act reluctantly on economic embargo, the United States does not want to intervene unnecessarily.

Obviously, the EU will continue to take steps that will deepen the crisis in Ukraine. The adoption of Ukraine in the EU to guarantee its territorial integrity will not solve, but will only aggravate the problem. Meanwhile, on the condition that Ukraine remains a kind of “buffer country” between the West and Russia and moves from a unitary system to a federal one, Moscow, which annexed Crimea, can return the peninsula to Ukraine.

At the present stage, it is necessary to avoid any steps that may lead to an increase in tension. The relationship between the EU and Ukraine should be considered separately from the EU membership procedure. It is necessary to urgently hold early general elections in the presence of international observers, thanks to whom Ukraine will be cleared of the power of fascism. It is necessary to ensure the participation of Crimea in the voting in the Ukrainian elections. The new parliament, which will arise as a result of the elections, should adopt a new constitution.

        And you don’t want anything more.
        Ukraine, as a single state, has signed a sentence of separation for itself. Russophobes dreaming of the destruction of Russians and Russians, the Russian-speaking people of the South-East of Ukraine and Crimea cannot be in one state.
        Ukraine will inevitably be divided into several parts, this inevitable process has been launched and no one can stop it, the process has gone too far.
        Crimea is forever in Russia. The line is for the South-East of Ukraine, for Novorossia. The people of Novorossia will decide their fate themselves, the Russians will unequivocally choose a separate path of development from the Nazis, Bandera, Russophobian hohlov.

    It’s too late, Russia will not return Crimea, this is no longer possible. No Crimean nor Russians will understand such a move, there is no turning back.

    It seems that the arguments and conclusions are correct, but in my opinion the author of the article looks at Crimea from a Turkish point of view. He either does not know or does not understand that Crimea is not a bargaining chip, that there more than 60% of the population are Russians. And how much Russian blood has been shed there since the XNUMXth century. There, the Crimean Tatars, subordinate to the Turks and the Turks and French themselves, and the British and Sardinian soldiers and Germans with Romanians were beaten, this peninsula is saturated with Russian blood to the very roots.

      It doesn’t matter how many percent of what nationality and who did what when. The fact is that they all decided by majority to become Russians and become. Russia is not Russian, but these are Russians and it doesn’t matter what nationality and faith. This has always been the strength of Russia.

    On the whole, the author’s balanced and objective view of the situation completely crosses out the above paragraph.
    Russia will never, under any circumstances, betray the inhabitants of Crimea who voted for the entry into the Russian Federation and will never leave Crimea. This is our land!

    The article is frankly pro-Russian. It is clear that the transition to a federal structure will be another opportunity to separate the eastern regions from Ukraine, based on decisions of the population of the regions. Naturally, if we do not propagate corruption, etc. in Crimea, then they will vote once again for joining Russia, and so joining Russia will be legalized. In addition to this, there will be others. The Ukrainian authorities will not allow this decision. For a pro-fascist government, death is a similar decision.

    If you carefully listen to the speeches of the GDP, it will become clear that the events that are happening now are not an accident, but thoughtful and prepared actions and the West and the rest of the world are waiting ahead, a host of events for which they are not ready. And this is the fault of the West itself, namely, Russia is denied the latest technologies, the demon of which the development of modern industry does not exist, and with the accumulated capital in the form of green candy wrappers, you can lose everything. The collapse of the exchange and the dollar is just around the corner, we are waiting for a new currency and new players.

    It is understood that the article is a translation of the Turkish media. But it seems that the author does not live a few hundred kilometers from the Crimea, but on another planet or is still studying at a school for children with developmental delays.
    And all this is a flaw in our media, which save money and do not want to voice the Russian position on foreign channels.

    Judging by the actions taken in relation to Russia, the EU is trying to aggravate, and not get out of the economic crisis. This is evidenced by the fact that the Hague is trying to make decisions proposed by the White House: "I believe there is agreement on which of the most important sectors to focus on. Energy is one of them; finance and banking is another; another sector is armaments," the US administration official said.see http://www.utro.ru/news/2014/03/25/1184404.shtmlWell, they’re doing worse for themselves ... However, the BRICS countries rejected the use of sanctions and "hate speech" against Russia by the Western powers, according to the Canadian publication The Globe And Mail.Also members of this organization criticized the assumption that Russia could be barred from participating in the G20 summit in Brisbane in November 2014 expressed by the Australian authorities.

    I just returned from the Crimea, was a member of the "polite Cossacks", feelings cannot be conveyed, as well as the joy of people following the results of the referendum. The situation in the south-east is now almost the same, slowlyoooo! but swayed. After yesterday's statements on TV "women with a scythe" (in my opinion, she's not all right with the council), a normal person would never say to the public! Maybe they will finally understand in the southeast what awaits them.

    guys is just an information war.

    Sanctions? they will introduce economic sanctions - the master card and visa have already been introduced - and what’s next - they are already losing capital in the medium term - they pushed for the creation of a new Russian payment system - and 95% of the citizens will only use it.
    Will they close production? They won’t send us the Mistral? - - The first step towards the nationalization of these enterprises.

    Stop buying energy? Don’t tell the apochka - we will bring gas and oil to China and GEYROPA will freeze and production will

    they won’t buy our vigorous fuel - well, they won’t have lipidism - who will win?

    All that does not kill us - it only tempers us. Any withdrawal from the market of Westerners will open the way for the domestic producer, and this is necessary for our production, at least a little - but it will allow us to grow stronger and make our own on the basis of their production.

    In addition, Russia does not conduct aggressive actions in Urkain - what are the sanctions ??
